Orange and Nut Bars
“Do you need a dose of energy? How about some orange bars to give you that jolt of energy? They are easy and quick to make. You can take them on the go, and will never have to buy them again!”
Soak the dates in hot water until they are tender.
Place the cashews in a food processor or chopper and grind until they begin to expel the oil.
Add the orange zest and 4 tablespoons of orange juice, the dates, shredded coconut, and coconut oil and grind again. Make sure to use a spatula or spoon to remove the excess ingredients from the walls of the processor. Do this as many times as necessary.
Make the dough into bar shapes and place in the fridge.
You can eat them this way or you can bake them in the oven at 400°F for about 12 minutes so they become firm.
