A raw version of Rocky Road Fudge… Rawky Road?

I thought it was clever.   🙂

This is so simple and SO yummy… my five year old asked for three pieces this evening!

What you’ll need…

  • 1/2c of coconut oil
  • 1/2c of soak, pitted dates
  • 1/4c of raw cacao powder
  • 1/4c of chopped almonds
  • 1/4c of chopped walnuts
  • 2tbsp of shredded coconut

 

Place the oil, dates and cacao into the food processor and process until smooth.

Remove the blade and stir in the remainder of the ingredients.

Place the mixture into a parchment lined loaf pan, pack it in tight and into the freezer it goes for about thirty minutes.

Slice into small squares and store in the freezer.

Make sure you share with your friends so you’re not tempted to eat more than you should!  🙂

Cranberry Carob Balls

Yum.

Really, yum!

So simple and so nutritious.
Here’s a great snack you can pop in your mouth and feel good about eating. Great way to get some healthy fats and fiber into your body and by using carob you are eliminating caffeine!

Toss a quarter cup of raw carob powder, a quarter cup of flax seeds, half a cup unsweetened shredded coconut, half a cup of pitted, soaked dates, a heaping tablespoon of maca powder (optional!) and a quarter cup of *slightly dehydrated cranberries into your food processor and process until it’s all combined.

Remove the blade and roll the mixture into bites size pieces and store them in the fridge.

This recipe made twelve balls and can easily be doubled.

They’re delicious – try them!   🙂

*For the cranberries…I placed a half a cup of fresh cranberries into a dish and placed them in the oven on the lowest temp (170) for about an hour. They were perfect. Can easily be done in your dehydrator.

Icicle Squares

November 15th, 2013 023

Icicle Squares!

OK…this was supposed to be raw fudge.

I think we may have stumbled onto something though!

Tell me you remember ‘icy squares’? I remember having them over the holidays when I was a child and loving them. This little concoction is very similar in texture to an icy square! It would be even more so if you omitted the pecans, but those are good for you so leave ’em in there.

Our recipe is not 100% raw, but you can easily replace the one ingredient to make it so.

Place half a cup of cacao powder, half a cup of coconut oil, half a cup of raw pecans and two tablespoons of coconut nectar or maple syrup into your food processor and process until smooth… almost like a pudding.

Line a small, individual sized loaf pan with parchment and fill it with the decadent mixture… save a little bit for you to ‘test’ with a spoon.

Place it into the freezer just until it hardens…maybe thirty minutes.

Slice in smallish pieces and store them in the freezer.

Enjoy!

Hemp & Coconut Quinoa Cookies

July 30th, 2013 105

Find us on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/SimplyDish

We thought our original Quinoa Cookie was pretty awesome… this one ain’t half bad either!

🙂

It’s always fun to experiment with new products and this hemp seed butter is quite fabulous…and the label’s kinda cute.

We love that our cookies have no eggs, no flour, no sugar, no added oil.  Vegan and gluten free!  And here’s a little twist…we only baked half of the recipe this time.  The other half went into the freezer, which makes them practically raw!  Oh yum!

Of course they are a little ‘earthier’ than a regular, buttery, not so fantastic for you cookie – but you feel like you’re eating a cookie and they’re SO good for you!  They make for a great snack and we like that they’re nut free so we can send them in school lunches!

In a food processor…

  • 2.5c of cooked quinoa
  • 1/2c hemp seed butter
  • 1/2c of raw sunflower seeds
  • 1/2c of unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/8c of coconut nectar

Process all of this together until blended and then transfer to a bowl.

Chop up a half (or a lot, I mean a little more) of a dark chocolate bar and add to the mixture.

Get your hands in there and squeeze it all together.  Shape the ‘dough’ into one inch balls and place them onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.  Dip a fork into water, shake the excess water off and press the cookies down with the fork…just like peanut butter cookies.

Bake in a moderate oven (325-350) for about thirty minutes and there you have it!

You should get anywhere between eighteen and twenty four treats with this recipe.

Healthy cookies you and your kids will love!

Veggie Seed Crackers

April 23rd, 2012 012

YUM!

Package these up quickly because you will want to eat them ALL!  🙂

Place half a cup of flax seeds in a bowl and cover with half a cup of water…

Let these soak while you prepare the remainder of the ingredients.

In a food processor…

  • 1/4 of a red pepper
  • 1 piece of celery
  • a handful of cilantro
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1tbsp of braggs

Process this until almost a paste… use a spatula and empty this into a mixing bowl.

Then add…

  • 1/4c chia seeds
  • 1/4c hemp hearts
  • soaked flax seeds (you just want to make sure all the water has been absorbed)

Mix all of the above together and pour out onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  It will take a bit of ‘massaging’ to get the mixture spread out evenly… but so worth it!  🙂

Bake in a low to moderate (275-3oo) oven for about an hour… let cool, break into pieces and try to save some for your friends!  🙂

Super tasty, super healthy snack!

Happy eating y’all!!
