Mint Chip Cashew Cream Bars

Mint Chip Cashew Cream Bars

If it wasn’t obvious… I’m a dessert fanatic. Sweet over savory every damn time. BUT –  that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your health to satisfy your sweet tooth. When I make desserts, I still use real, whole foods, and they taste just as delicious!! When baking, I love making raw desserts! Not only do you retain all the nutrients, but they are so simple to whip up! These raw vegan mint chip cashew cream bars taste sooo decadent, yet are made with such simple ingredients!

All you’ll need is

raw cashews and pecans

pitted medjool dates

cacao or cocoa powder

nut milk

coconut oil

vanilla and mint extract

cacao nibs

optional: adaptogens
