Takes a few days to get the spelt berries ready, but it's soooo worth it! This is a nut-free version of banana bread, using sprouted grain berries as the base! YAY! You could also add some walnuts or pecans and some raisins, if you wanted to! Can't remember what real banana bread tastes like exactly, but this works great for me! The first time I made this, I didn't use the vanilla, but I think i will next time just to give it some more depth.
This is so delicious, I make it every day! I always have frozen strawberries in the freezer. Tastes like strawberry sorbet with white chocolate, and the crunchy sugar is perfect. Satisfies any ice cream craving. Perfect for the holidays as well.
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.
