Peanut, cashew and chocolate bar
By Tisa Jacob
A healthy five ingredient bar that is delicious.
- 1 cup roasted, unsalted peanuts
- ¼ cup raw, unsalted cashews
- pinch salt
- 15-20 mejdool dates, pitted
- 1 tbsp desiccated coconut, unsweetened
- ¼ cup semisweet chocolate chips
Level of difficulty Easy
Cost Budget Friendly
Place peanuts and salt into the bowl of food processor. Pulse to form chunks.
Add cashew, pulse 2-3 times, till all nuts are broken and mixture is still chunky.
Add the dates and process till dough forms.
Transfer contents to a large bowl. Using wooden spoon or spatula, mix in coconut, chocolate chips.
Spread mixture between two large parchment sheets.
Smooth with hands or flat bottom of a large bowl/ pan to 1/2 inch thickness
Store in refrigerator for 1 hour.
Cut into shape desired.
Can keep chilled for upto a week.
If you're using smaller dates, you'd probably have to add more, until mixture is bound properly.
Dough might be sticky, it would be best to smooth/shape using parchment paper, even wax paper- though I believe the latter might stick.
You can swap more/less cashews to peanuts; whatever/ wherever your pantry/tastebuds allow.
