Easy Chocolate Cashew Bars Recipe: No Refined Sugar in This Dairy-free Chocolate Candy Recipe

Candy without butter? No white or brown sugar? This healthier chocolate cashew candy recipe will satisfy any sweet tooth.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes plus 2 hours to chill
Cook Time: 0 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours and 5 minutes


Here’s how you make it:

  1. Combine the peanut butter, honey, coconut oil, cocoa powder and vanilla. Mix well. Stir in the cashews.
  2. Pour mixture into a loaf pan that’s been lined with aluminum foil that overlaps the top edges (so it’s easy to lift out).
  3. Put in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours to set. Remove candy and cut into bars or chunks. Keep uneaten candy refrigerated – it’ll melt at room temp.

Note: Because of the coconut oil, this candy really does melt fast! If you’re feeling generous and taking some to a friend, put the container on an ice pack for the ride. (Been there, done that!)

This is really good, @naimah. I've made it several times and have all the ingredients now to make a batch for my dad, who has become a chocoholic in his old age. :-) Love that it doesn't have butter in it and cashews are so good for you!
