Ingredients:

1 cup raw hazelnuts
1/2 cup raw buckwheat
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup linseeds
12 pitted dates soaked
1/4 cup carob powder
1 tbs mesquite powder

Add more dates to get the right consistency depending on how fresh your dates are.

Method:

Blend till very smooth but still with some texture. Roll into balls and devour these decedent treats! 😋

Carob is an evergreen flowering shrub. The powder can be ground down without any heating or processing like cacao. It’s also less of a stimulant and is better for those with #adrenalfatigue as it will not affect your hormone levels like #cacaco can as its caffeine free yay! It’s high in vitamin E and magnesium, potassium and minerals and can help with digestion too. It’s high in protein like most plant based nutrients and has an earthy sweet taste that I find more palatable since breaking my cacao addiction 6 months ago. It’s lovely on chopped bananas or in a smoothie. Like all foods like this it’s a sometimes food! If you have allergies to garlic, onions or phenols steer clear as it contains tannins that are rich in gallic acid.
But gallic acid provides anti-allergic, antiseptic and anti-bacterial benefits. Don’t worry it doesn’t taste like garlic ha!!
