These chews are a quick pick-me-up for when you’re on the go and need to bring a snack.

Serves 4

2 cups medjool dates, pitted

½ cup whole raw cashews

½ cup shredded unsweetened coconut flakes

2 tablespoons cashew butter

1 tablespoon raw cacao powder

1. Blitz all the ingredients together in a food processor until chopped and well combined.

2. Line a small loaf pan or small sheet tray with parchment paper and press the mixture into the bottom. Make sure to press it firmly together to form a bar. The mixture will be crumbly at first, but the dates will make it sticky.

3. Refrigerate the mixture for 20 minutes, then cut into bite-size pieces.

4. Store in a covered container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
