You can store these in the freezer or the fridge, these are great snacks for on the go. If your like us we love love love nuts and they are an important part of our diet? There are many health benefits to eating nuts. They are a great source of protein, fibre and essential fats. Almonds are full of calcium which is great if you are dairy free. Almonds are also high in vitamin E which helps improve the condition and appearence of your skin. Cashews have a good level of protein and also contain minerals like iron and zinc which is again great if you are vegetarian or vegan.

    These look really good… Do they have the consistency of a Laraber (if you’ve had one before), soft and chewy?

    1. No it’s more crunchy because of the nuts the dates make it sweet but it’s more nuts than dates and has oats in also, so not as soft as a Lara bar! Super tasty!
