  • 1 cup raw unsalted cashews
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes plus more for sprinkling on top (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp. honey or agave nectar
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen and thawed cherries patted dry with paper towels
  • 5 pitted Medjool dates
  • 2 Tbsp. cashew butter
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut flour
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract


  • Place cashews, coconut flakes, honey (or agave), and salt in a food processor. Blend 1 to 2 minutes, until mixture starts coming together. Press firmly into the bottom of a loaf pan lined with parchment paper.
  • Wipe out food processor. Add cherries, dates, cashew butter, coconut flour, and vanilla. Blend until smooth. Pour over cashew mixture; use the back of a spoon to smooth out. Sprinkle with additional coconut flakes, if desired. Freeze for 1 hour. Slice into 12 bars.
