Health Warrior’s Raw Coconut, Almond & Cacao Treats Health Warrior 27 July, 2013 Food, Products Today I wanted to share with you this lovely recipe using delicious plant based ingredients. No processed sugar, dairy or gluten involved… 100% delicious though, and nutritious… This is a great snack for after yoga/ workout, or simply as a treat with a cup of tea! The beauty of raw food treats is that it usually is very easy and quick to prepare. Deliciously fudgy, and chocolaty, a little goes a long way so enjoy it and try to keep some for later… Ingredients: 1/2 cup dessicated coconut 1/2 cup almonds 8 dates (if you use medjol dates, use only 4) 1 Tbsp water- only if the mixture is too dry- (it depends on the dates you use!) 2 Tbsp Almond butter 1 Tbsp raw cacao powder – or carob powder A pinch of sea salt Directions: Place the almond and coconut in a food processor equipped with the S blade. Pulse until the mixture becomes like flour. Now add the dates, almond butter, cacao, salt and water if needed. Pulse until the mixture comes together and gets sticky. Press the mixture onto a cutting board and form a rectangle. Slice into bite size pieces with a sharp knife. Eat now and if you can resist keep some in a container in the fridge! It will keep about 5 days.
