1 cup (130g) raw cashew nuts
3/4 cup (110g) loosely packed dates
1/2 cup (70g) loosely packed dried cherries
1/2 - 3/4 tsp almond extract, to taste
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until the mix starts to clump together, approximately 2 to 3 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl occasionally if needed.
2. When the mix is ready, line a square or rectangle baking tin with non-stick paper. Press the fruit and nut mix into the lined tin, distributing evenly to give a height of 2 to 3 cm (1 inch). Allow to set in the fridge for at least an hour before cutting into slices.
