This weeks blog recipe is perfect for the kiddies lunches, or after school snacks. Though we thought this one up for use when visiting friends and family and we don’t have access to our dehydrator but need a go-to snack bar recipe. It is very simple and quick and only uses a half dozen or so ingredients, oh and it tastes marvelous!! ( at least we think so! )
O.K here we go:
Golden berry Cashew Chews
1/2 cup of raw cashews ( soaked for an hour and rinsed)
1/4 cup of raw macadamia nuts
1/2 cup of golden berries
handful of goji berries
1 tbsp of coconut oil
1 tsp of vanilla powder
2-3 drops of orange essential oil ( or a tsp of orange zest itself)
1/2 cup of raw shredded coconut
pinch of sea salt.
Process the golden berries in a food processor until ground, add all other ingredients and continue blending until well incorporated.
Mix in goji berries and stir. Now lay the bar mixture between two layers of wax paper and make it into a large inch thick square, freeze for approx. 30 mins or until desired consistency. These bars can be kept in the fridge or freezer all depending on your favourite way to enjoy them, both are quite satisfying indeed. All together, minus the soaking and freezing time these “chews” can be made in about 15 mins. A great recipe to take with you when staying with others as it is not very time consuming nor does it require a lot of tools. As well most ingredient items are easy to find and or pack along if need be. Enjoy!!
Hope you give it a try 🙂
