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.
