Guilt free, Uncooked Date Nut fudge

How many of you can stop eating an evening snack? I cannot :(  Evening snack with a cup of tea/coffee is my weakness. To feel less guilty I just try to make healthy snacks most of the time. Today's snack is one of those guilt free snacks. It just takes 10 mts to prepare these yummy fudge.




2 cups of chopped pitted dates
1/2 cup of walnuts roughly chopped
1/2 cup of almonds roughly chopped ( You can add any other nuts like pistachios/cashews too.)
pinch of sea salt (optional)


Step 1: In a food processor, process all nuts coarsely( I like it coarse. If you want you can finely process)
Step 2: Remove the nut mixture and keep it aside.
Step 3: In the same food processor / indian mixer,  process chopped dates coarsely. Now add nut mixture pulse till you achieve dough consistency. ( you can check by pressing the dough into your hands and it should hold together. )
Step 4: Add dough on the parchment paper or wax paper on a baking sheet or pan and distribute the mixture evenly and press with your hands until flat and firm.
Step 5: Keep baking sheet in the refrigerator for few hours to chill. Cut into whatever the shape you want and store these yummy fudge in air tight container.

These can stay fresh for 10 days in refrigerator.
