Ginger, coconut and cashew bars

Ginger, coconut and cashew bars

When we were in China recently I picked up a box of these for bars to snack on while sightseeing and travelling. They were delicious and I loved the ginger flavour. Not long after returning home, I decided to have a go at making them myself.

I was pretty happy with the result! While they do have a sweetness to the bar because of the dates, the ginger and lemon give them a balanced flavour and they are not too sweet.

I used fresh ginger as I find the flavour so much nicer than dried ginger in a raw bar like this.

While I shaped the mixture into bars, you could easily turn them into balls if you preferred.

Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: Raw sweet treats
Serves: 12 bars
  • 2 cups dates (pitted)
  • 2 cups cashews
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp freshly grated ginger
  • ¼ tsp Himalayan pink salt
  1. Place 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 lemon juice, ginger, salt and shredded coconut to the food processor and pulse until combined.
  3. Press the 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.
