Homemade Cashew ‘Nakd’ Bars

I’m a big fan of Nakd bars.  They are one of the few pre-packed snack foods available from the supermarket that are healthy.  But the cost!  You can pay up to 90p per bar if you buy them individually or £2.29 for a box of 4.  Plus they’re quite small – 3 mouthfuls and they’re gone!

So I thought I’d have a go at making my own.  Just three ingredients, a quick blitz in the food processor and then some patience while they chilled in the fridge (although the dough straight out the bowl was good!)
