  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 12 bars 1x


3-ingredient chewy, nutritious breakfast bars packed with protein, fiber and natural sweetness for a major energy boost.



  • 1 cup cashew nuts
  • 1 cup dried fruit (cherries or apples)
  • 12 whole dates, pitted


  • ½ cup shredded unsweetened coconut flakes
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a food processor. Pulse a few times just to break them up. Separate the dates if they start to clump together.
  2. Process continuously for 30 seconds.
  3. Scrape the bowl then process for 1-2 minutes more, until the mixture forms into a ball.
  4. Form into a 1” thick square or rectangle. Wrap and chill.
  5. Remove from fridge and cut into 12 bars. Wrap each bar in plastic wrap or wax paper.

Store up to a week in fridge or freeze for up to 3 months. Serve cold.
