These homemade bars are the perfect treat to have on hand when you need a boost of energy or a satisfying bite. They are naturally sweetened with dates, which also provide fiber and antioxidants. They are packed with protein from cashews and sacha inchi, a South American superfood that contains omega-3 fatty acids and essential amino acids. Unlike the store bought version, these bars are not processed or loaded with artificial ingredients.

  1. Line an 8x8-inch baking dish with parchment paper. Set it aside.
  2. Place the cashews in a food processor and process them until they are finely ground. (If you like some texture, you can finely grind 1 cup of cashews and coarsely grind the remaining 1/2 cup.)(3 minutes)
  3. Add the sacha inchi powder and blend it with the ground cashews for a few seconds. Then add the dates and blend until a sticky ball forms (make sure to stop and scrape down the sides a few times).(5 minutes)
  4. Using a spatula, press the dough into the prepared dish. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until set. Slice into bars and enjoy!(1 hour)
