Homemade nakd bars are one of my most favourite things. They are quick and easy to make and use only 4 ingredients. They are also vegan, gluten free and paleo friendly so (unless you are allergic to nuts) they are a great go to snack for everyone.

Dates and pecans have been my snack of choice this week so I decided that I would turn them into a delicious bar for the whole family to enjoy (my little one can’t quite handle chewing up a nut but these bars are perfect for him to enjoy. He has sneaked two out of the fridge already!).

If you have tried making your own bars before without any luck (usually becauseย they haven’t stuck together), then test out the mixture before you set it. You want the mixture to stick together when it is pressed between your thumb and finger. If it doesn’t then just add an extra date until it does.

    You want the mixture to stick together when it is pressed between your thumb and finger. If it doesn't then just add an extra date until it does.

    Ingredients

    Instructions

    1. Place the nuts into a food processor and blitz until mostly broken up.
    2. Place 8 - 10 medjool dates into the food proccessor and blitz until the mixture is well combined and it holds together when pressed between your finger and thumb.
    3. Pour the mixture out into a lunch box or square container and push down firmly with the back of a spoon until it is around 1.5 cm thick.
    4. Refrigerate for a few hours or over night until firm enough to cut.
    5. Once chilled, cut the mixture into bars and wrap each bar up individually with some food wrap and refrigerate again until needed.
    6. These are great in lunch boxes, as dessert or as a snack to help curb a sugar craving.

    How long will these keep for? I’m in my last few weeks of pregnancy and am thinking these would be a perfect snack for labour…

    I have made these and they were delicious! The other flavours are great too but this is my favourite. Sometimes I need to adjust the amount of dates. Maybe it depends on the size of them? Yummy.

    I have to say that pecans and dates are my two favourite discoveries since starting clean eating with you Charlie. Yum! And these are just heaven!

    These are so tasty and the texture and mouth feel are lovely. I love a quick and healthy breakfast so one of these and a piece of fruit and Iโ€™m good to go. The only down side is that nuts are not cheap in Australia so Iโ€™ll try to make a bulk lot and freeze them, see how I go.
