  • First, coat an 8-inch square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Line with parchment; spray parchment. In a bowl, combine cashews, crispy brown-rice cereal, rolled oats, dates, and coconut. In a small saucepan, stir together cashew butter, butter, and honey over medium heat until butter melts and mixture is smooth. Pour over dry mixture, stirring to coat evenly. Press into pan. Refrigerate at least 2 hours. Remove from pan, drizzle with melted chocolate, and refrigerate again until firm, about 5 minutes. Cut into bars. Store in a cool place, covered, up to 1 week.
