Ingredients – Raisins, pumpkin seeds, almonds, pecans, dates, apricots, all spice & ginger
It’s been a while!! In the last few weeks I have been busy enjoying myself on holiday and partying…..with a bit of working in the middle. So I haven’t had much time for my blog. This weekend I went to my friend Vizzy’s wee festival and I had promised him some raw treats for the festival-goers. Here is one of the healthy bars I brought. Nothing better than a bit of healthy energy boost when you wake up with a hungover. This recipe is for Raif (sorry not sure of the spelling) who I met at Vizfest and who is a great cook and very nice person. x
Here is how to make those All spice & ginger bars (using a standard coffee mug):
2 1/2 cups of dates
1/2 cup of soft apricots
1 cup of almonds
1/3 cup of pecan nuts
1/3 cup of pumpkin seeds
1/3 cup raisins
1 tbsp of ground ginger
1 tbsp of all spice
– Put the almonds, pecan nuts and pumpkin seeds in the blender. Add the ginger and all spice. Blend for a minute then add the dates and raisins.
– Spread the sticky mixture in a baking tray (put some baking paper at the bottom first).
– Freeze for at least one hour. Once out cut the bars in small squares and keep them in an hermetic box in the fridge. You can keep them in the fridge for 2 to 3 weeks.
– Et voilà!
