Homemade Nakd Health Bars

Health bars have become a big thing. People are snacking on nut and fruit packed items instead of (or as well as) biscuits and chocolate bars. As well as the focus on healthy eating, I think it's genuinely because they are tasty as well. I have tried ones from Nakd, Primal, Bounce, and Tribe and they are delcious, but can also be a little pricey. As the ingredients are normally quite minimal, I thought I would try making my own. With a recipe list of Cashew Nuts, Dates, raisins, coca powder and vanilla essence, I already had the ingredients to try them out.
You will need a food processor or blender
You will need a 1kg loaf tin, lined with cling film
This makes around 12 bars

175g dried dates, chopped roughly if they are large
150g raisins or sultanas,
225g cashew nuts
2 tablespoons cocoa powder or cocoa nibs if you have them
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Roughly chop the dates if they are quite big and add them to your food processor or strong blender. Follow in with the raisins if using, along with the cashews, cocoa powder or nibs and vanilla extract.
Process until the mixture comes together in a sort of rubble like texture. Press the blended fruit and nuts into the cling film lined tin in an even layer. Leave to chill and set for around an hour before cutting into bars and wrapping in greaseproof paper. You could also roll these into balls if you would prefer. Eat these whenever you need a delicious energy boost.
These can be kept, well wrapped, in the fridge for 3 to 4 weeks.
