So my wonderful cousin sent me some amazing recipes and links to their sources... enjoy!
The original recipe is from King Arthur, but like I said....I adjusted a few things. This is for a small batch, you can double it if you want more! Just make sure to cook it on 2 baking sheets, and rotate them when stirring every 15 minutes.
2 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup rolled wheat
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup almonds, broken up
1/2 cup pecans, broken up
1/2 cup walnuts, broken up
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup brown rice syrup
1/4 cup organic virgin coconut oil
1/2 Tbsp pure vanilla
Mix dry together. Combine liquids and pour over dry. Mix well. Spread onto baking sheet. Bake at 250 degrees, stirring every 15 minutes for 1 hour, or until dry. Remove from oven and let sit until completely cooled and dry before storing in an airtight container. Before serving sprinkle with dried fruit.
I love this with regular milk or almond milk. Also, you can sub raw sunflower seeds, or any other kind of nut for the one's I mentioned in the recipe.
Also, on viveleveganrecipes.blogspot.com I enjoy her Cashew Banana Ice Cream recipe. It has bananas, cashew butter, pure maple syrup and some salt in it.
I don't remember if I found this recipe on that same website or if it is one of Ani Phyo's. Called Raw Snickers. You use dates and macadamias. Split open the date and fill with 2 macadamias. You then dip the date in a chocolate mixture made of: Equal parts coconut oil, cocoa powder, and honey (or agave), a little bit of vanilla and a touch of salt. This needs to be heated on the stove or in the microwave. Dip the date and then set it on wax paper. I store these in the fridge, and love them.
