In an attempt to make a nutritious allergen free snack for the kid’s lunch I remembered the equation for raw treats I found last year when researching a raw diet.
**equal parts dried fruits and nuts/seeds, oil, and spices
For this recipe I used …
- 1/2 cup medjool dates, if dry soak in water for a few hours first and then drain
- 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
- 1/4 cup hemp seeds
- 1/2 tbl olive oil
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend till combined to a dough like consistency, scoop out and roll into little balls and refrigerate
Another of my favourite snacks is what I call a date nut, open a date/remove pit and add your nut of choice, it’s fast, sweet, delicious and nutritious.
