  • 1 cup roasted and salted (with sea salt) cashews
  • 7 pitted (~1/3 cup) deglet noor dates (I like Sunsweet, you can find these in any grocery store by dried fruit)*
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • Optional: 1/4 cup miniature chocolate chips.


  • Add the cashews to a food processor (high powered) or a high powdered blender (I use twister jar on a Blendtec) and pulse until crumbly, but the cashews still have some good texture.
  • Add in all of the dates an pulse until the mixture begins to turn into a thick dough. Add in the vanilla and pulse again until combined.
  • Remove from the blender or food processor (you should have a thick and smooth "dough"). If desired gently stir in the chocolate chips cookies (make sure the "dough" is completely cool though (sometimes it heats up when being blended).
  • Roll the "dough" into small bite-sized pieces. 
  • Transfer to an airtight container and store in the fridge. Snack on them pre or post workout or whenever you're craving a sweet treat or snack!


*The dates should be soft (old and hard dates won't blend correctly). If they aren't soft, soak them in water for 30 minutes and then thoroughly dry.
