I’ve been interested in raw food for awhile now, but I haven’t really gotten around to trying any raw recipes. Then I saw the most awesome chocolate covered raw treats on dreaminitvegan.blogspot.com.
There’s no baking involved, so it’s totally my speed (seeing as I’m no baker by any stretch of the imagination). There’s only 4 ingredients – medjool dates, raw almonds, shredded coconut and vanilla, plus melted chocolate for covering, if you like that sort of thing.
And it taste kinda like an Almond Joy. Oh man, I couldn’t get a hold of the ingredients fast enough.
Super easy to make, just toss into a food processor and hit the button. Instead of a round shape called for in the recipe, I shaped mine into bars. You know, like the candy bar, complete with a couple of almonds on top.
I only had half a chocolate bar to melt, so I just drizzled it over the top, but it’s still good and more than enough. It’s sweet even without the chocolate. I’ll definitely be making these again and again.
Update: I’m happy to report that the nut bars (without the chocolate) freeze well. I stuck a couple of test bars in a tupperware lined with wax paper into the freezer. Basically what I had in the fridge, got popped into the freezer.
Just take out and eat, it doesn’t freeze solid. It’s just a little colder than the refrigerated ones.
