Raisin Coconut Cashew Bars

Oh my goodness Thanksgiving last weekend was a gut buster. My favorite is always the stuffing and I eat way too much of it. After all of the heaviness, I wanted to go into this week with a lighter, more nutritious option that worked for both breakfast or a snack. Cashews are my favorite nut in the world so I decided to develop incredible and easy (after all of the Thanksgiving cooking who wants to cook??) no bake raisin coconut cashew bars. They only took minutes to form and just had to set before I could enjoy them!

My food processor did all of the work in making the mixture for these lovely bars for me! The key was I made sure that it was finely ground but still had some texture. The raisins were sticky enough for it all to almost form a dough.
Then I just pressed that mixture right into an 8 x 8 pan. I made sure to really firmly pack it and even it out so that it held together well. Then it just needed to chill and set for a couple of hours. I LOVED that I could give my oven a break with these babies!

Once they chilled I cut them into 6 bars and they were good to go! They kept for days so I could just grab one for breakfast in the morning or a pick me up in the afternoon. Oh, and I was a good wife and shared with Marc too. The raisins and coconut gave them just enough sweetness against the saltiness of the cashews. Hope you all love this easy recipe as much as we did! xo
