Create snacks that are good to GLOW with these heavenly bars!
I made these a couple of weeks ago, ate some, shared some, stashed some (freezer) so now this week I’ll have snacks ready! I love the colour from the turmeric – it’s so pretty, isn’t it?
These are such a great snack mid afternoon (hi there, 3pm…) to keep your appetite at bay until dinner. Make them and keep on hand for mid-morning, afternoon, or after dinner treats. Perfect for when someone pops around for a cuppa!
2 cups raw cashews
1 cup shredded coconut
½ cup fresh squeezed orange juice
1 ½ teaspoons orange zest
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground turmeric
2 tablespoons honey/maple/brown rice syrup (whichever is in the pantry and you prefer)
Either 3 tablespoons coconut oil or MCT oil
1. In a food processor combine raw cashews with coconut and blitz to a crumb.
2. Add orange juice, orange zest, cinnamon, turmeric, honey/maple/rice malt syrup and either oil.
3. Blitz it all together so it’s a sticky raw ‘dough’, then press into a square lined cake or loaf tin and set in the fridge for a few hours.
4. Cut into squares or bar shapes. You could roll them if you like the ball effect but to be honest I can’t be bothered with ball rolling it’s my LEAST favourite job in the kitchen!
Store in the freezer & take out as needed.
