Raw Raisin and Ginger Nut Bars
These are little squares of heaven. Seriously I could not recommend them more. The combination of dates, almonds, pecans, raisins and ginger is just delicious, and even better they take just 5 minutes to make.
Makes 14 bars
– 3 cups of medjool dates (the dates really do need to be medjool as otherwise they’re not sticky enough to bind the nuts together)
– 1 cup of pecans
– 1 cup of almonds
– ½ a cup of raisins
– 1 tablespoon of ginger
Simply place all the ingredients, except the raisins, in a food processor and blend until they form a sticky nutty deliciousness. Remove from the blender and add the raisins, mix them into the mixture – it’s easiest to do this with your hands as its too sticky for a spoon. Once everything has been added place the mix onto parchment paper in a baking tray, spread and pat down with a spatula. Either freeze for an hour or refrigerate for three to four. They’re best kept in the fridge too, but this isn’t essential by any means.
