Your newest dessert obsession is right here, my friends! No joke, these cashew butter bars are LEGIT. Super light and fluffy, sweetened with out any refined sugar, no oils and NO FLOUR. And but, they’re nevertheless decadent, delightful and seriously incredible!
I’m presently en route for a 36 hour journey to California and am so thankful to have a handful of of these bars tucked in my bag for later. Even however airports are certainly getting far better at supplying healthier food possibilities, I often bring my personal. In my bag currently? A salad from Sweetgreen (duh), two of these cashew butter bars, my Matcha Protein Balls, nut butter packets and all the tea. (<– I truly normally travel with at least ten tea bags in my purse!)
And with all individuals goodies in my bag, all I’m pondering about are these bars!
The recipe for these bars comes from the newest cookbook from my good friend Megan from Detoxinista. Her most recent cookbook, No Excuses Detox, just hit the shelves and it’s incredible. The recipes are scrumptious, the pictures are beautiful, every little thing is labeled for all diet plans, and it’s ALL spending budget-pleasant. She tells you how significantly every recipe costs per serving, which is so useful!
I was planning to share a savory dish, like her wholesome Lo Mein or Cauliflower Bolognese, but when I noticed her Cashew Butter Spice Muffins it was game over. For starters, I’m obsessed with cashew butter. Second, I had all the ingredients in my pantry. And third, they use people lovely pumpkin pie spices that I can never say no to.
Oh and I essential treats on the plane, so there was that as well.
Meghan can make these as muffins, but I was craving a brownie/blondie, so I just baked them in a square pan and it worked superbly!
They’re super simple to make you just beat together all the ingredients in a bowl, dump it into a pan, leading with the crumble and accomplished. One bowl for mixing and a foods processor for the topping. Effortless peasy!
I only produced a single modest tweak to the recipe and that was to swap banana for applesauce. I didn’t have any applesauce, but did have two overripe bananas waiting to be utilised, and it worked like a charm.
I personally adore the flavor of banana, but if you’re not a fan (or you’re allergic), go with the applesauce. They’ll even now be tasty!
And really, as I’m typing this, I bet you can also swap in other fruit purees as properly! I’m pondering pumpkin, sweet potato, pear butter, or even a berry puree if you have a blender! (strawberry/blueberry would be wonderful!!)
Honestly, I can’t get more than the texture of these bars!
They almost remind me of an angel food cake, they’re so light. But they have also sort of have a spongy texture, like sponge cake, which is crazy delightful. They’re by far one particular of my favored desserts I’ve manufactured not too long ago!
Nutritionally speaking, they also make a wonderful breakfast/snack. Just 155 calories per square, with just 7g of sugar and 4g of protein! They’re a perfect way to fuel up for a big day ahead
