1 cup soaked hazelnuts (or whatever kind you like - soaked overnight and rinsed)
1 tsp agave nectar
dried coconut flakes
Process dates and nuts in food processor, add agave and pinch of salt. Shape 'dough' into balls and roll in coconut flakes.
Adi likes Strawberry Shortcake so I used her cupcake liners placed in a cupcake tin and pressed one nut/date ball in the bottom of each one to create a crust.
Divide sliced strawberries among the cupcake liners and add agar agar syrup ---
Agar Agar Syrup
- 1/4 cup hot water (not boiling)
- 1 tsp agar agar powder (agar agar is like gelatin but made from seaweed and is not 100% raw but a great vegan substitute for recipes needing a bit of form)
- 2 Tbsp agave nectar
Chill in the refrigerator until set and enjoy! We did :)
I'm landing at a place right now that leads me to believe that food combining is far more important when eating cooked foods. I choose to believe that raw foods are digested in a completely different way... I may be in denial. Regardless, this recipe rocks and Adi couldn't get enough of it and I don't feel in the least bit bad for letting her eat not one but two pies for breakfast!!
