Double Chocolate Delight

29 Jan

I can't keep those little hands away from my freshly made batch of Double Chocolate Delight!

Lou at my local health food shop is a Raw Foodie and he makes these delicious raw double chocolate cookies once in blue moon.  Last week, we bought 4 pieces – but my son and husband looked at me, as if to say: “Is that it?”  Needless to say, after reading the ingredient list, I decided to come up with my own version.  I didn’t use cacao nibs or lucuma powder in mine, but mine taste similar.  As you  can see from the photo above, my son just couldn’t wait to eat one.  And after he did, he ran excitedly all over the house looking for his dad to tell him they were fresh out of the food  processor.

Thank you Lou for the inspiration!  These Double Chocolate Delights are… delightful!!!

Grind in food processor until fine and set aside:

big handful of pecans or walnuts, raw or soaked and then dehydrated

Next grind in the same food processor until fine:

1 cup macadamia nuts, soaked for a few hours to soften, rinsed and drained

Add into the food processor and continue to mix together until you have a soft and even batter:

a big pinch of sea salt

1 tsp vanilla extract (non-alchohol)

2 soft dates (soak if you have to)

6 tbspns raw honey or agave syrup or maple syrup

Then add in:

1/2 cup ground pecans or walnuts

1/2 cup raw cacao powder

Dampen your hands when handling the batter so it isn’t too sticky.  You can roll a tablespoon of batter into a ball and then roll it in cacao powder for ‘truffles’.  Or as the photo shows above, roll a tablespoon of batter then flatten it into a circle. Serve as is or top with just a little of either raw honey/agave/maple syrup or raw chocolate sauce (mix raw honey/agave/maple syrup with a little raw cacao powder), and sprinkle with some cayenne seasoning too if you like!
