I started writing a year back, around the first week of January (2013). I loved cakes, chocolates and anything sweet. I did not care for raw food or healthy food in the real sense. A year in food and everything related, like weight-loss, healthy eating and much more, has changed my perspective on food altogether.
I made raw chocolate bars (no cooking involved), celebrating the end of another glorious year and the impending start of a fabulous one. You could easily make this a vegan recipe, though mine is not. However, do make sure you use high quality chocolate and that too of high percentage of cocoa. I use the really intense ones, and then mellow it down by adding honey.
- 100 g almond flour
- 100 g peanut flour
- 70 g prunes
- 30-50 g white butter
- 30 g honey
- A pinch of salt
- 70 gm dark chocolate (really good quality, 80%)
– Soak the prunes in hot water for 10 min, and blend them till they become soft puree. Do not add water while making them into a puree. They will turn out just as needed.
– Add this to a bowl that has the both the flours and a pinch of salt in it.
– Mix together to form a soft dough
– Place in the freezer for 30-35 min, and remove to cut them into bars. Meanwhile, melt your chocolate on a double boiler (don’t forget adding a small knob of butter while melting the chocolate)
– Work around quickly with the cut out bars, and coat them with the melted chocolate.
– Freeze them again, this time for an hour, so that they solidify well.
