  • 200 g. | 2 cups Cashews raw and unsalted
  • 10 Dates
  • 60 g, | 2 scoops Pea protein organic
  • 1 Lemon organic


  • Preheat the oven to 257°F/125°C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Put the cashews on the baking sheet and roast them for about 10 to 15 minutes or until they’re fragrant.
  • Meanwhile, cover the dates with water in a small bowl and let them sit for about 10 minutes. Drain the dates after soaking and make sure no water is left.
  • Rinse and scrub the lemon lightly to clean it.
  • Add the cashews, dates, pea protein, the whole lemon and vanilla extract to a food processor and blend into a smooth mixture.
  • Alternatively, add all ingredients to a medium bowl, cover it, and process using a handheld blender.
  • Line a loaf pan with parchment paper. Add the cashew mixture to the loaf pan, spread it out and press it down firmly until it’s 1-inch (2.5 cm) thick all over.
  • Put the loaf pan in the fridge for about 45 minutes, until it has firmed up.
  • Divide into 8 bars, serve cold with the optional toppings and enjoy!
  • Store the bars in an airtight container in the fridge and consume within 6 days. Alternatively, store in the freezer for a maximum of 90 days and thaw at room temperature.


No blender? Mince the dates and nuts as fine as possible, knead all the ingredients by hand and add a quarter cup of water to make everything stick together.
