My 9 year old developed this recipe. We aren't exactly sure of the measurements-we eyeballed it, so let me know if something isn't right.
Gus's Rawlmond Joys
1/2 c of raisins
1/2 c of shredded coconut
1 T cacao
1/3 coconut oil
agave to taste
First blend the raisins in the FP. add oil and shredded coconut. mix. Add cacao and agave. Shape into small bars and add an almond on top. You can eat them right away, but they are better if you can wait and refridgerate them for 30 min or more. enjoy! (makes about 12 bars)

Please don't laugh at this - but for the 1/3 cup coconut oil - do you slightly warm it first to go in, or just use the solidified stuff? I can never seem to get the coconut to incorporate into my smoothies - I always seem to have bits in there (I do not use ice for that reason) when I add in the hard coconut oil. Please help????

we used the solid stuff. We let the jar sit out for an hour or so before we used it so it was a little easier to scoop out.

I read somewhere that the liquid point of coconut oil is only like 70 degrees or something, and it's ok to put the bottle in warm water to soften it up.
That's just what I read. ;)

This will be my first raw candy I will make just because I know how excited Gus is to see how much everyone likes it! I can't wait!

I'm so glad you liked them. :D I will tell Gus when he gets home from school. He's always wanted to be a chef, but now I am trying to channel his energies to RAW/LIVE FOOD creations. :cool: He's got pretty good ideas, well at least for sweet things. LOL!
