Ingredients:

1 cup dried, unsweetened pineapple

Warm water for soaking

1 cup cashews (I used blanched almonds)

1/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

1 tsp lemon zest

Directions:

Soak the pineapple in warm water for 5-10 minutes. Drain. Add all ingredients (except water) to a food processor and process until the mixture sticks together (about 60 seconds). Press the mixture evenly into a loaf pan. Chill for 10 minutes then cut into 6 bars. These can be stored in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
