Homemade Bite Size Energy Bars

These are really quick and easy energy bars. They’re good for an after-workout snack and are better work munchies then the candy bowl.

Homemade Bite Size Energy Bars

What you’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 2/3 cup pitted dates
  • Handful of chocolate chips
  1. In a blender or food processor, grind up the cashews until they’re fine. Place them in a bowl
  2. Process the dates until they become smooth. I added a tablespoon of water to help.
  3. Mix the cashews together with the chocolate chips.
  4. Enjoy!

Cashew White Chocolate Chip Cookies are a Thing!

My boyfriend loves cashews, chocolate, and chocolate chip cookies. I thought, why not try and make a cookie with cashews? I figured that white chocolate would go better with them. Low and behold cashew white chocolate chip cookies are a thing!

I was able to make some sweet cookies from elsbro.com’s blog for Cocoa Cashew White Chocolate Chip Cookies.

 

I would show you some pictures of what they looked like out of the oven but I forgot to take some before we ate them all.

The recipe calls for salted cashews but I used unsalted. Instead of almond butter I used coconut (that’s what we had).
