Raw key lime pie bars

This is another recipe along the lines of my Larabar inspired recipes I posted last year – My Larabar inspired raw bars and balls.

Super easy to make and they taste fabulous. I love the freshness of lime and these bars have a lovely distinct lime flavour.

I package mine up straight away and put them in the freezer to make sure I don’t eat too many at a time.

Recipe type: Sweet treats
Serves: 16
Ingredients:
  • 1 ¼ cup cashews
  • ¾ cup almonds
  • 2 ½ cup dates
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • Zest and juice of 1 small lime
Method:
  1. Place almonds, cashews and dates into the food processor and blend. Blend for a few minutes, scrape the mixture from down the sides of the food processor and blend again. Do this a couple of times until the mixture is soft and sticks together. Do not over process though, as you will end up mixture that is too runny.
  2. Add the lime juice and lime zest and process again.
  3. Add shredded coconut to the food processor and pulse until combined.
  4. Press the lime mix into a lined small-medium baking tray and place in the fridge for a couple of hours. Once the mixture has set cut with a sharp knife into your desired size.
Notes:
Bars are best stored in the fridge and they can be frozen as well. Simply take them out of the freezer about 15 before you want to eat them.
