These are great as a snack (1 or 2 squares) or even as part of a meal (3 or 4 squares). Adjust the lemon juice amount as necessary depending on the moisture of the dates. You don’t want your mixture too wet and sticky, it should hold firm together with just a slight stickiness.
- 3/4 cup pitted Medjool dates
- 1/2 cup raw cashews
- 1/2 cup raw almonds
- zest from 1 lemon
- 2-3 tsp lemon juice (depends on moisture of dates)
Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until the mixture is a consistency of a thick dough. Line a 9×5 loaf pan with parchment paper, and press the nut mixture flat into the pan. Turn out the mixture onto a cutting board and slice into 1 inch squares. Store refrigerated.
