Cashew squares

*** Dairy free, soya free, egg free, gluten free and no added sugar ***

For the based:

  • 100g Cup of Dates
  • 100g of Cashews

For the cashew topping:

  • 100g of Dates
  • 100g of Cashew Butter
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut Oil, Melted
  • Pinch of salt

For the chocolate topping:

  • 100g dark dairy and soya free chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil

*** Method ***

  • Soak all the dates in hot water for about 5 minutes.
  • Put the cashew nuts in the blender and blend until to get to a flour like consistency.
  • Fully drain the dates and add half to the blender. Blend until all the dates are broken down and the mixture comes together.
  • Press the mixture down in a lined baking tray and place in fridge while you make topping.
  • To make the topping, blend the rest of the dates until as smooth as possible.
  • Add in the cashew butter and melted coconut oil.
  • Spread the topping on the base and place in freezer for at least 2 hours.
  • Melt the chocolate and coconut oil for on top.
  • Spread the chocolate across the top. Since the cashew topping is frozen, the chocolate will harden very quickly, even as you spread it.
  • Put it back in freezer to allow chocolate to fully set.
  • Cut in squares.
  • They can be stored in either the fridge or freezer and remove as required.
