"This recipe is based on Loraine Picot's almond nuggets. I swapped some of the ingredients around for a different taste and texture. My husband LOVED them!"
These treats were tested using Nature's First Law Organic Raw Chocolate Powder. For fruits, I chose strawberries, blueberries, grapes and
mango pieces. The strawberries were large and needed to be cut into
quarters. The blueberries and grapes did not need further preparation
after washing as they are just the right size. Select fruits that you like best. Personally, I thought the strawberries tasted the most decadent!
I used a jar of roasted hazelnut butter, as I had some on hand. However, if you wish to create an authentic 100% raw food recipe use raw nut butter. You can try our recipe with one small change: you want your nut butter to be the proper consistency at room temperature and more stiff when refrigerated.
You can get creative with your choice of coatings. I tried the
following: hulled hemp nut; sprouted flax powder; finely shredded
coconut; more raw chocolate powder; finely shredded coconut mixed with
raw chocolate powder. . . the possibilities are endless.
This recipe makes about 50 nuggets, so you may wish to cut it in half.
Alternatively, the dough will keep in the fridge for several days so
you can make more nuggets at a later time. Just bring it back to room
temperature for easy handling.
