Back with Just a bite of Pina Colada bar



OK so clearly I haven't written anything here in a while, I really want to make an effort and start blogging again. Thought I'd come back with something simple that really doesn't get much attention. 

So the most common no bake bar usually involves date and chocolate. I've made that kind, often, and so has the rest of the internet. These bars are more about the pucker, still sugar free and still raw and just really simple to make. 

1 cup dried unsweetened pineapple
1 cup raw cashews
1/4 cup untoasted coconut, plus more to cover
zest of a lemon 
salt 

Start by soaking pineapple in enough warm water to cover. 



Drain pineapple and place everything in a food processor. This is definitely a recipe that can fit in a mini processor. 




Pulse until well mixed and starting to hold together. 


Pour into a plastic wrap lined container. Top with extra coconut to cover. 



Wrap plastic over the top of the bars and press down with fingers to compact. 



Refrigerate for 15 minutes, remove from container and cut up to small bite sized pieces. 



Store in the fridge.
