Recipe: Raw Lemon Squares


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.
