I came up with this after a visit to my local raw cafe and tried their version. It was soo good! And i think mine is comparable…if not better! :)
3 cup Dry Almonds (soaked and re-dehydrated or unsoaked)
2 tablespoon Coconut oil, warmed
2 cup almond butter
¼ cup coconut oil, warmed
¼ cup agave nectar
.33 cup shredded coconut
½ cup un soaked cashews, chopped
½ cup raw granola, (optional)
Combine first 2 ingredients in a food processor until creamy to make the Almond butter needed..or you can use store bought, however if you are making the almond butter solely for this recipe, you can add the whole amount of coconut oil (2 TBS + 1/4 cup)
Then blend the next 3 ingredients in the food processor. Add coconut and chopped cashews and pulse until well combined. You want to keep pieces of cashews intact
Spread mixture into a wax paper lined loaf pan, top with raw granola and place in fridge to firm up. When firm, slice into 1” cubes.
Variation 1 – pour mixture into individual tartlet pans and top with granola
Variation 2 – line 9” pie plate with granola to form a crust and pour in almond mixture. Top with more granola and firm up in fridge.
Variation 3 – top with fruit puree
