Raw English Toffee

Raw English Toffee

• 20 Dates (the smaller ones, not the large Medjool dates)
• 6 T virgin Coconut oil
• 5 T Cacao powder
• 2 pinches Himalayan salt
• 1/4 t Vanilla from pod
• 3 t Acaí berry powder or Purple corn (Optional)
• (Optional) sprinkle some himalayan or smoked sea salt on top.

Pit the Dates. Add the rest of the ingredients and process for 3-5 minutes, until the dough gets shiny: You now have raw toffee! Spread the toffee on a parchment paper and put another paper on top. Roll out the dough until it is about 0.5 inch. Sprinkle some himalayan salt on top or palm sugar. Cut it in smaller pieces and put it in the fridge to harden.

It’s a Revolution Peanut Butter Bars

Peanut butter bars

• 1 cup shredded Coconut (grind into a flour)
• 1 cup Hazelnuts (grind into a flour)
• 1 cup Dates
• 4 T virgin Coconut oil
• 1/4 t Vanilla from pod
• 2 pinches of Himalayan salt
• 0.5 cups Peanut butter

Pit and soak the Dates a couple of minutes. Make a flour of the shredded Coconut and Hazelnuts in a food processor, it doesn’t have to be perfect. Put aside in a bowl. Make a date paste of the Dates in the food processor. Then add the rest of the ingredients and process into a dough. Form into bars and put them in the fridge or freezer to harden.

    Hi there,
    May be a stupid question but when you say 4 T coconut oil ect. Do you mean tablespoon or teaspoon?
    Thanks

      Hey Gigi,

      Thanks for reading! To answer your question, T = tablespoons, t = teaspoons.

      Hope you enjoy the desserts!

    This is definitely something I would try and due to the fact that I have a sweet tooth, these cookies would be gone before dinner. I’ve recently tried these incredible cookies, that have all natural ingredients, http://www.cooperstreetcookies.com/, this is something I would definitely recommend.

      Hey James, thanks for sharing! Unfortunately, some of those cookies look to contain animal products. Is there a flavor that is vegan that you would recommend?
