Roasted Cashew Cacao Bars

img_31591
Ingredients

For the Bottom Layer:

  • 2 Cups of Ground Almonds
  • 1/2 Cup of Cacao Powder
  • 4 Tablespoons of Almond Butter
  • 1/3 Cup of Honey/Maple Syrup
  • 4 Tablespoons of Desiccated Coconut

For the Top Layer:

  • 2 Cups of Cashews
  • 4 Tablespoons of Melted Coconut Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons of Honey/Maple Syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons of Greek Yoghurt

These are insanely delicious. The flavour of the roasted cashews tastes amazing with the cacao powder and they taste even better after a day or two. To make them paleo, dairy free and vegan, swap the greek yoghurt for a dash of almond milk (the greek yoghurt makes them that bit creamier!).

To start, roast the cashews at 180’C for about 8 minutes. While they’re roasting, add the ground almonds and cacao powder to your food processor and blend until combined.
