makes one neat loaf enough for 4 westerners or 8 non-westerners
here’s real raw halva – and it is as authentic as it gets. i am in palestine – where halva is sold in every open market by the kilo. halva is a sweet sesame confection. this raw version is pretty, delicious, heavy but dense enough to make you stop after a few bites. a great way to get more flax into my daughter’s diet…
(and yes i am well aware that the mulberries i picked this morning look (and taste) far more orgasmic – and that is perfectly fine – to compete with nature is suicide)
I made this tonight as a dessert and it was amazing! I got David Wolfe’s raw cocao beans at our local healthfood store, but I know you can buy them on-line too. Even though not state, of course the raisins and coconut are raw and organic too. To make date syrup, just blend dates and water. Agave would taste good too, but is not easy to find in a truly raw state.
