So Christmas is soon upon us and I have to say I’ll be glad it’s over… Humbug
But I have to say I’ve been working on a raw Christmas Cake/Bar and this is what I’ve come up with.
Sorry about the photo but I’ve not had time to make them again to be able to take any more photos.
1 cup Walnuts
1 cup Macadamia nuts
½ cup of Dates soaked
¼ cup of Agave nectar
1-teaspoon vanilla extract
1-teaspoon mixed spice
1-tablespoon raw chocolate powder
1 cup of mixed dried fruits
Zest of an orange
Place the nuts in a food processor and blend till they are smooth.
Add the soaked dates, Agave nectar and blend till the mixture is combined.
Place the nut and date mixture into a bowl and mix in all the dry ingredients and add the vanilla extract and orange zest.
Finally mix through the dried fruits.
Shape the mix into bars or Christmas pudding shapes (I use a ice-cream scoop to do this) then place on a Teflon sheet and put into the dehydrator for 12 hours turning once about half way through. The cake/bar should be firm but still tacky inside.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as it has been one of the ones I am proud of it…
