These snacks are a great  treat for when you’re studying and need a good break. They’re of course simple and easy to make so for anyone who feels like they’re always in a rush, try to make these the night before your busy week starts s you have something yummy to munch on!

Yield: 12 bars

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cashews 
  • 1 cup pitted dates 
  • 1/3 cup hemp seeds 
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice 
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest

Instructions

1) Place the cashews in a food processor and process till ground up.2) Add the dates and hemp seeds and pulse repeatedly. Then, add the lemon and lemon zest and leave the motor on until the whole thing has formed a big, uniform, sticky ball.3) Take a large sheet of saran wrap and place it over the bottom of a small baking dish. Press the mixture down into it, till it’s even in thickness. Cover with another sheet of saran, and freeze for at least 30 minutes.4) Unwrap the «dough,» lay the rectangle flat on a cutting surface, and cut into 12 bars.5) Wrap up individually and store in the fridge or freezer till ready to eat. I’m not sure how long they’ll keep, but I suspect up to two weeks is perfectly fine, and longer if you freeze them.
