A delicious and healthy take on Kind Bar’s Dark Chocolate Cherry Bars made with raw cacao and tart dried cherries drizzled with dark chocolate and sprinkled with sea salt.


  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 1 1/4 cups dried cherries
  • 1 cup medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/2 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup puffed rice or millet
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips (or chopped dark chocolate)
  • sprinkle of sea salt


  1. In a food processor or blender mix together cashews, cherries, dates and cacao powder until it forms into a large sticky ball.
  2. Place ball in a large bowl and add almonds and puffed rice/millet.
  3. Use a spatula to mix everything together. It should be very sticky.
  4. In a 9 x 9 baking dish lined with parchment paper add mixture and press down with fingers until mixture is flattened out into bars. Wet hands slightly if mixture is sticking to hands.
  5. Place dish in freezer for 15 minute to set.
  6. Melt dark chocolate either in microwave (in 30 second intervals) or in a double boiler on stove top.
  7. Remove bars from freezer and cut into 12 bars (or however many you prefer).
  8. Place bars on a plate or tray and drizzle dark chocolate overtop with a spoon. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  9. Place bars in fridge to set for an additional 15 minutes.
  10. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
