Date And Ginger Bars

image

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.

Ingredients

300g pitted dates

120g raw cashew nuts

25g crystallised ginger

Method

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.
