Blikki January/February 2014 by Blikki. Raw Almond Butter Cups. I just realized that I’ve turned on my oven maybe once in the past week. What a glorious thing. What could be worthy of turning on the oven during a heat wave, you might ask? Two words: sweet potatoes! Yes, even in the summer, heat wave be damned, I need my sweet potato fix. This is my favourite way to eat sweet potatoes lately: Dice the sweet potato (leave the skin on), roast until tender, and then toss the cooked potato with coconut oil, sea salt, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Finally – and here’s the best part – a generous spoonful of hemp seeds sprinkled on for good measure.

The hemp seeds stick to the coconut oil, coating every delicious bite of sweet potato. But this post isn’t about roasting things like a crazy person when it’s 40C with humidity, it’s about not roasting things! Speaking of drooling. For the almond base, I initially tried a combo of almond butter, coconut oil, and sweetener, which was super tasty, but the cups melted and were pretty greasy. Yield1 dozen Freeze time45. Easy Carob Almond Freezer Fudge + Frosty Recipe. Oh do I have a fun treat for you today. It showcases one of my old favourites – carob. Have you tried carob powder before? The pods of the tropical carob tree contain a sweet pulp which is dried, roasted, and ground into powder form. Carob is caffeine-free and contains antioxidants as well as calcium, iron, potassium, and fibre. Here’s the kicker - carob powder is naturally sweet which reduces the need for a lot of added sweeteners in a recipe – a total bonus if you ask me. The makings of freezer fudge… In this recipe, I paired carob with a touch of cocoa powder to add some chocolate flavour.

I worked off my favourite Seductive Raw Chocolate Walnut Freezer Fudge and this carob variation was born.

Pssst – Bonus recipe alert! Chocolate Chickpea Truffles - Keepin' It Kind. The best part about fights is when you make up afterwards, right? To be completely honest, I don’t really have much experience with fighting/making up because Chris and I don’t really ever fight. I”m serious. We’re pretty good at talking rationally with each other and I don’t think I could ever bring myself to say anything hurtful or disrespectful to him. That’s why my blow up with The Chickpea last week seemed so foreign to me. Even though we quickly made up, Chickpea wanted to make it up to me since he did say some pretty nasty things.

When Chickpea presented me with my treats, I wasted no time biting into one of the gorgeous little truffles. Because I was so excited about the truffles, I forgot to take a picture of the truffle filling until I was down to the last few (in other words, excuse my terrible iphone picture on the right). Don’t wait until you have a fight with someone to make these chocolate chickpea truffles. Chocolate Chickpea Truffles Ingredients Instructions Love animals? Raw Vanilla Fudge.
