Chocolate Coated Lemon Cashew Bars

I love this no bake recipe. So simple to make and protein rich thanks to the addition of cashew nuts and cashew nut butter. It is also grain free making it paleo friendly. A great healthy treat. Make up a big batch, cut it up into bars and freeze. Delicious straight from the freezer.
