No cook, grain and refined sugar free nutbars

These nutbars are so delicious and easy to make. They require no baking and are great for snacks or lunchboxes.

You will need a strong food processor to make them. Because the dates need to be blitzed to a paste and you also want to break up your nuts so they are not too chunky. So cutting them is a bit easier.

You can use all your favourite nut combinations but you will need about 2 cups of nuts. I used Eat Naked nuts, honey and almond butter. All their products taste amazing because it is NAKED, NO PRESERVATIVES, NO ADDITIVES and is produced in a SUSTAINABLE WAY and taste amazing, Buy them from any Dischem.

The bars is refined sugar-free and also contain no grains. To improve the taste it is best to roast all the nuts and seeds first it improves the flavour greatly!

This is what you will need to make these yummy bars, most of the ingredients will be in your pantry anyway.
