Raw Food Dessert Bar – Cleaning Out the Cabinets

I was looking through our cabinets and noticed we only have a few handfuls of various sprouted/dehydrated nuts and seeds, so I decided to clean out the cabinets and make a raw food bar dessert with the remnants. One of the items left in our cabinets is some raw cacao powder that I accidentally bought instead of raw carob powder, so I decided to use this up too. I think I ate too much batter while I was preparing them because I am full and hyper! I usually use sprouted and dehydrated buckwheat groats in something like this so that they aren’t so high in fat. However, I just used all of my groats in the granola that I made yesterday so they will have to do without. Okay, so I am not quite sure what I put in them…but it is something like this.

1 Tablespoon raw cacao powder
10 dates (soaked)
1 ripe banana (for moisture)
15-20 brazil nuts
1/4 cup raw shredded coconut
Splash of Date Water
1/2 cup sunflower seeds (sprouted and dehydrated)
1/4 cup almonds (soaked and dehydrated)

Put the first 6 ingredients (everything except the sunflower seeds and almonds) in food processor using the S Blade. Place mixture into a large bowl. Put sunflower seeds and almonds in food processor with S Blade until a fine powder is formed. Fold into the mixture in the bowl.

I then rolled them into balls and placed in the dehydrator for a couple of hours. You can make them any shape you like! YUM! Hope they don’t make Baby Roku hyper after breastfeeding him today. I don’t think there is enough cacao for him to notice.

    I updated this post with the rest of the recipe (thanks mom!)

    Also wanted to let all you breastfeeding mamas know that the cacao powder in this recipe did not make Baby Roku hyper. And I ate quite a bit of batter that day! By the way, I do not recommend eating a lot of this batter…I was full and uncomfortable for the rest of the day. Won’t make that mistake again!
