Another raw recipe for bars. This one has sugar added so is sweeter than my others - but is also very tasty - so it is more appealing to those not used to raw nuts. The sugar can be cut back by half if desired or even left out but it makes the "taste".
Raw Blondie Brownies
½ cup raw cashews
½ cup raw walnuts
½ cup raw pecans
½ cup raw macadamia nuts
½ cup brown sugar, scooped/not packed (or use coconut or palm sugar)
12 Medjool dates, pitted
½ tsp pure vanilla extract
1/8 tsp fine sea salt
In a food processor add the nuts and brown sugar, process until finely chopped. Add in the dates (if your dates are hard chop them up first) and process on high until the dates are finely chopped. Sprinkle the vanilla and sea salt on top, pulse until coming together.
Line an 8×8″ glass baking dish with plastic wrap or parchment paper, knock the mix into the pan and press with a spatula until even. Fold over the excess wrap and press down firmly to pack.
Refrigerate for an hour to set up before cutting. Wrap the pieces individually in wrap, keep refrigerated and eat within 2 weeks.
I cut ours into 8 bars.
