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!  🙂

Blueberry Date Bars

August 18th, 2013 003

These may need a tweak here and there, but they are delicious!

Next round we may add a little bit of coconut oil to the blueberry mixture to firm it up, but the flavor won’t change.

YUM!

For the base…

  • 1c of soaked, pitted dates
  • 1c of raw walnuts or pecans
  • 1c of unsweetened coconut

Process those three in the food processor and press the mixture into a lined loaf pan.

For the blueberry mixture…

  • 1c of blueberries
  • 1tbsp of chia seeds
  • a pinch of raw vanilla powder

Process the blueberries in your food processor and then stir in your chia seeds.

Pour the mixture onto your base and place in the freezer for about an hour.

You want the loaf to be firm enough to cut  into bite sized squares.

Top the scrumptious mouthfuls with finely chopped walnuts or pecans and enjoy!

Salted Caramel Almond Bars

June 8th, 2013 068

YUM!

And they’re raw!

I have to admit, these float my boat even more than the Vegan Almond Roca…and the small people in the house love them!

What you’ll need for the base…

  • 1c of organic almonds
  • 1/4c of cacao powder
  • 6tbsp of coconut oil
  • 1tbsp of coconut nectar

Process all of the above in your food processor until it’s about the consistency of almond butter…almost, but not quite.

Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and press the mixture down…pack it in tight!

For the salted caramel…

  • 1c of soaked dates
  • 1/4c of water
  • 2tbsp of coconut oil
  • 1tsp of raw vanilla powder
  • 1/2tsp of himalayan salt

Place all of the ingredients into a four cup mason jar and blend until creamy with your hand blender/smart stick.

If you double the recipe, it might work in your processor, but there wasn’t quite enough to break it all down.

Spread the caramel over top of the chocolatey base and place in the freezer for an hour or more.

Once they’ve firmed up a bit, removed them from the freezer and drizzle a little bit of homemade chocolate over the top.

Homemade chocolate (just enough for this recipe)…

  • 2tbsp of coconut oil
  • 3tbsp of cacao powder

Gently melt the coconut oil and stir in the cacao powder… so simple.

Let the chocolate firm up and then slice them into bars or squares…you don’t need much so the smaller the better.

Sprinkle a little himalayan salt over the top and enjoy!

Store these beauties in the fridge or the freezer… and share with your friends!
