The Kitchen Shed - Clean Eating No Bake Cherry BarsMy 5 year old loves Nakd bars (I love that he loves them too). They are natural bars made from dried fruit and nuts and are perfect for his lunchtime treat.

These Clean Eating No Bake Cherry Bars are just like Nakd bars… but taste even better! They are softer, juicier and taste so fresh and sweet. I love that you can create your own little fruit bars and then portion them up ready to grab and go whenever you need them. They are the perfect sweet treat fix and the kids love them too (even more than the originals!).

With the help of a food processor you can whip these little beauties up in minutes then let them sit in the fridge until you are ready to use them. They couldn’t be easier – or more satisfying to make!

Have you tried any Nakd bars?

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Place the cashew nuts into a food processor and blend until they resemble fine breadcrumbs.
  2. Pour the ground cashew nuts into a bowl and set aside.
  3. Place the dates and cherries into the food processor and blend until broken up.
  4. Whilst the food processor is on, slowly add the ground cashew nuts back into the mixture and give the whole thing a good whizz until all the ingredients are distributed evenly throughout.
  5. Pour out the mixture and press firmly into a container or lunchbox with the back of a spoon. Make sure it is tightly packed.
  6. Cover with the lid or a piece of foil and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  7. After two hours you can turn out the hardened mixture and cut into 8 equal bars (or 16 smaller ones).
  8. Wrap each bar tightly in some food wrap and keep in the fridge until needed.
  9. These are great little snacks and are perfect for lunchboxes or after school treats.

      What a fab idea Emily, sounds delish! – Very berry is my favourite too, Miles loves the cocoa mint and orange ones, but they are a bit pricey! I hope you enjoy making your own, let me know how they turn out! πŸ™‚

    I halved the recipe to make four 35g bars. I used dried cranberries rather than the cherries. They are sooooo yummy. Scanning the ingredients I usedΒ intoΒ my fitness pal I’ve worked them out to be 161 cals each.
