1 cup raw cashew nuts
1 cup shredded coconut
2 tbsp sesame seeds
2 tbsp cold pressed unrefined coconut oil
Juice and zest of 1 lemon
6 fresh medjool dates
1 tbsp Camu Camu Powder
(Sesame seeds to garnish)
Add all ingredients into a food processor/blender and process until combined. Mixture should be sticky. If it seems a bit dry I add a dash of filtered water. Press flat into a lined tray or container lined with baking paper.
I find a spoon works best. Place in the freezer for an hour to set then flip out and slice into squares. Keep refrigerated for a week.
