Something I have done a lot, when we had our own kitchen, was making raw food chocolate snacks. Often I made lots of it, and then kept it in the freezer to have when people came over.
Some of the good things with raw food snacks are that they are naturally free from gluten, eggs, diary and rafinated sugar. And they are so good!
My niece had asked me to make some while I am here, since she likes it a lot.
So I made one batch yesterday and one today. And since I bought so much ingredients for it, I’ll be able to make one more to put in the freezer.
Here’s what’s in today’s batch:
Sunflower kernels, roasted
A pinch of salt
Since I make these from organic ingredients, I choose to use seeds rather than nuts – that keeps the cost down a little. And if people allergic to nuts come to visit, it won’t be a problem.
When making these, I simply grind all the seeds in a food processor, then add the cocoa powder, dates and salt and blend it all before adding the coconut oil.
It’s the coconut oil and dates that will keep the “dough” together. When the oil is chilled it becomes hard.
It’s been so good to be here in Frisco where the Whole Foods market opened rather recently. Don’t think I have ever eaten this healthy in the US before.
My brother and his family has started eating a lot more organic food since the store opened.
Allright, that’s all for now!
