These Cashew-Goji Bars are my daughter's favorite!

Below are ingredients, books and kitchen tools that can be used in this recipe and ordered from Amazon:
I like to soak and dehydrate my raw nuts before making these energy bars to make them easier to digest. This way you get all the benefits of the nutrients in the nuts without enzyme inhibitors. You can now purchase sprouted nuts (see Amazon above). When I am hiking, skiing or just need a quick boost of energy I grab for these bars. They are a step above the store bought and will save you money too!
A few goji berries to be added to the food processor at the end for extra colour, flavour and nutrients.
Place nuts in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Add the dates, lemon, vanilla, and salt and process until combined. Add the goji berries and process a few seconds more. Shape into squares or balls and put in fridge for about 3 hours.

Note: I always encourage everyone to use as much local, grown without chemicals ingredients (organic), and meat, eggs and dairy from animals that were/are free-ranging and were/are raised without hormones and antibiotics. Seafood should be wild from unpolluted waters.
