The quest to reduce the sugar!
Paul is ever searching to reduce his sugar intake, in recent weeks we have been experimenting with different plant sugars in hot drinks, with mixed results, but so far the refined white sugar hasn't made a comeback so it's looking positive.
One thing we always struggle with is finding snacks for the hill that fit the bill. Something sweet, easy to grab out a rucksack and also doesn't either melt or freeze! A tall order... Fortunately Paul loves raw food bars and with so many different combinations, here's this weeks homemade winner!
I found the original recipe online, however not having half the ingredients I improvised and we ended up with these... Delicious...
Cocoa Raw Food Bites (make around 12)
100g cashew nuts
100g brazil nuts
couple tbsp of shredded coconut plus more to roll the bites in
1-2 tablespoon soya milk
1-2 tablespoons green and blacks cocoa powder
Whiz everything in a food processor with the exception of the soya milk.
If mix is really dry add soya milk
Roll in to bite size balls, roll in coconut
