sweeeet

Imma kindda taking a break from dairy, sugar and wheat these days. Not dieting or any such thing, but I find it makes me feel rather good. I don't want to lay off for ever and ever (liking lattes, chocolate, cream and butter), but a while is ok.
however!

This doesn't mean the end of Mrs. Sweet Tooth, and yesterday she and I, in collaboration with a little person who also likes sweets, played a game of tip-the-cupboard.

The coconut ones are cocoa, and was made with (if I remember correctly): dried dates, cashew nuts, cocoa, carob, coconut oil, water, sunflower seeds, dried apricots ... and rolled in coconut.

The sesame ones are liqourice, and was made with dried dates, dried apricots, cashew nuts, tahin (sesame paste) powdered liqourice root ... and rolled in sesame seeds.
:) Not many are left today.

  2. Hi Saganaga :) This is the recipe, I'm afraid. I pretty much used what I had in my cupboard, and tasted my way there. The cocoa was more dates than apricot, app. 1 tbsp cocoa, 1 teasp carob, 1 teasp oil, 2 tbsp sunflower seeds, a tbsp water. A small handful nuts. But more/less if you like that better.
    Liqourice was 1/2 teasp powder, 2 large tbsp tahin - the rest like above :-) I hope that helps :)
