  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Place dates in a bowl and cover with several inches of cool water until soft, 30 to 60 minutes. Drain, squeeze out extra liquid, and reserve. Chop dates into a thick paste.
  2. Combine dates with cashews, vanilla extract, and salt in a bowl. Fold in chocolate chips. Press mixture firmly into a parchment paper-lined 8-inch baking pan until compact. Refrigerate until set, 1 hour to overnight.
  3. Cut into bars.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You will not need to soak dates if they are already soft.
  • You can also mix dates and cashews together using a food processor. If the mixture seems too dry, add reserved dates water, 1 teaspoon at a time until mixtures sticks together but is not too wet.
  • Store in a sealed container (or wrap individually) in the fridge.
