  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1 cup raw casheys
  • 1 1/2 cup dates
  • 1 cup egg white powder or collagen peptides
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 tbsp canned pumpkin purée not pie mix


  1. Line a 9inch square pan with parchment or wax paper. Set aside.

  2. Combine almonds and cashews in a food processor and process until roughly chopped.

  3. Add dates to nuts and process until combined (the mixture shouldn't be smooth).

  4. Combine egg white powder, pumpkin spice, salt, and pumpkin purée. Process with the mixture until it achieves an even distribution. This may take 3-4 minutes. Stop and scrape down sides as needed.

  5. Press mixture into pan, as evenly as possible. 

  6. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Cut into 9 bars. (Store covered in fridge for best texture.)
