Raw, vegan and nutritious!

This is a great one to tuck away for the holidays… who doesn’t like turtles?

🙂

And so simple.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

For each turtle, you want two raw pecan halves.

Place two pecans close together, but make sure each turtle has its own dance space.

For the caramel…

  • 1c of pitted dates, soaked
  • 1 heaping tablespoon of coconut oil
  • a generous pinch of vanilla powder

Soak the dates for at least four hours. Drain most of the water but don’t squeeze them dry.

With a hand blender, blend the above three ingredients together until smooth.

Place a dollop of the caramel on top of the pecans and then place them in the freezer for about an hour.

For the chocolate…

  • 1/4c of coconut oil
  • 1/2c plus 2tbsp of cacao powder

Melt the coconut oil over warm water just until it melts and add in the cacao.

Give it a whisk.

Cover the pecans and caramel with the chocolate and store in the fridge or the freezer.

Simple, delicious and nutritious!
