These simple, no-bake bars are a breeze to make and are totally suitable for snacking but still delicious enough for dessert.



  1. Add the cashews to a food processor and pulse until mostly broken down.
  2. Add the dates and tahini and mix until it forms a big clump of thick dough.
  3. Line a square baking pan (mine was 7 x 7 inch) with 2 overlapping strips of parchment or wax paper.
  4. Press the dough into the pan, taking a few minutes to firmly press it down and smooth it out.
  5. In a microwave-safe bowl, bowl placed over a pot of boiling water or double boiler, melt the chocolate until smooth and creamy.
  6. Use a spatula to evenly spread the chocolate over the bars. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  7. Place in the freezer for 2 hours to set then lift out of the pan and cut into 16 squares (or 8 large bars if you prefer).


Feel free to double the amount of chocolate used for a thicker chocolate topping. If you prefer, use my recipe for raw vegan chocolate to make the chocolate coating.
