The boys are back to school this week so I am back to baking for the lunch boxes.
However, these are no bake, whizz them up and squish in a tin goodies! Gluten free, dairy free, egg free, vegan, vegetarian, the list goes on but trust me, easy and delish!
Did I mention they only have three ingredients? Winner!
Makes 12 bars.
300g pitted dates
120g raw cashew nuts
25g crystallised ginger
Check each and every date doesn’t have a stone, trust me on this, I’ve been caught out before!
In a food processor, whizz the ginger and then add the dates and nuts.
Process the mix until it is all finely chopped and beginning to ball together, this may take two or three minutes.
Line the base and 2cm of the sides of a 2lb loaf tin with a single piece of baking parchment, saves on cutting and lining!
Spoon the mix into the prepared tin, squish down, I use the back of a spoon.
Pop into the fridge for at least 1 hour.
Use a sharp knife to cut into 12 bars, wrap each bar individually and keep in the fridge.

Is there a nut free version of this? I can’t have cashews or any nuts for that matter!
Hi Simplylifesimplylove, I think that sesame seeds go well with this, just whizz the ginger and dates and then mix the seeds in by hand or squish the date mix into a tin, sprinkle over sesame seeds and then use the back of a spoon to push them down onto the dates. 🙂 Ros

Me too! I think it’s an acquired taste. I once read how to make it, but it seemed like a lot of work….
Really want to try this bar!
