Remember Crispy Chocolate Bars? Or Mr. Krispers? Something like that. Well this recipe I came up with reminds me of that. Simple, quick, and gives you Omega-3s, MCTs, and antioxidants. My version is low-sugar as well, but I'm sure you could use agave, date syrup, or some other raw sweetener if you prefer.
I came up with this concoction to satisfy my craving for something dessert like while on a low sugar anti-candida diet. Of course, it's not sweet, but the vanilla really helps out with that. Enjoy!
All measurements are approximate so you can adjust them to your likings.
These treats would remind anyone of honey roasted peanut butter. When you refrigerate dates, part of the outside hardens into a crunchy crystal that mimics that candy flavor. And the Himalayan salt gives it a honey roasted peanut. It’s also really important that you use almond butter made from soaked (the equivalent of sprouted) almonds, dehydrated and ground into a crumbly, flour-like butter. You can home-make the almond butter or you can buy it from a few specialty brands. Just be sure not to add any oil, as this will make them heavy. The specialness of these is that they are light. If you can find more exotic dates such as Halawi or honey dates, use those instead. They are softer and when labeled raw, are much more delicate than Medjools.
Feel free to use figs instead of dates, as I find myself eating them with figs just as often as dates! The crunchy seeds and jelly give it a peanut-butter-and jelly taste.
A serving is about 3 stuffed dates.
This is so easy you wouldn’t believe something this quick could taste SO good. I could probably make it with my hands tied behind my back… My Mom and I had a raw cacao couch party upstairs with this one! We couldn’t fit more than 2 chocolates each, they were that rich. I made MmMmMint Chocolate Truffles and MmMmMulberry Truffles for this one but the possibilities are ENDLESS once you have your chocolate base!!!
My kids love bee pollen- the love to just nibble on it straight. I wanted to make something unique for them that didn’t make such a mess from them dropping it all over the house. So I made them these cream cadies that they get on special occassions. They are very sweet and rich- so you don’t need very much to satisfy you.
