Healthy Fruit and Nut barsPrep: 30 min Servings: 16by Angie Wilkes1 recipe>
Homemade version of Nak'd bars. Easy to make, very versatile. If you love the taste of Nak’d bars, but you’re not so keen on the price, try making your own – you won’t believe how easy these are to make. This is the basic recipe for the bars, but you can add whatever flavourings you want. I’ve used vanilla, but I suggest experimenting with mint, almond. lemon and coffee flavours as well You can also change the fruit and nuts used, or add other ingredients such as coconut – just keep the proportions the same.
- 200g dates
- 70g raisins
- 170g cashew nuts
- 2 tbs cocoa powder
- 2 tsp vanilla flavouring
- Place all ingredients in food processor, and process until the ingredients are all combined – the mix should be sticky, there should be no obvious lumps of fruit or nuts. Depending on your food processor this can take a while – mine took a minute or so to process to the required level.
- Line a tray or dish with cling film, and scrape the mix into the dish. Press down hard with the back of a spatula to flatten the top. The mix should be about 1 inch/2cm in height.
- Place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before cutting into 12 bars. The bars can be wrapped individually, kept in airtight container (separated with cling film if necessary) in the fridge, or even frozen, if you find you can’t stop yourself eating them!
