These cashew no bake energy bars are a lightly sweet healthy snack loaded with comforting pumpkin spices and cashews.
- 2 cups Medjool dates* (about 20)
- 3/4 cup cashews
- 1/2 cup almonds
- 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon**
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 pinch kosher salt
- Remove the pits from the dates. In the bowl of a food processor, add the dates, cashews, almonds, cinnamon, vanilla, kosher salt, and 1/2 tablespoon of water. Process until combined and a sticky dough forms, with large chunks of nuts.
- Spread the dough into an even layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Then use a glass to roll over the top to a uniform thickness, about 1/2 inch thick. Freeze for 15 minutes until set, then cut into rectangles.
*Look for Medjool dates, a large variety with a caramel flavor. Medjool dates are available in most mainstream grocery stores.
**For a pumpkin spice variation, substitute 1 1/2 teaspoons Pumpkin Pie Spice for the cinnamon.
