Raw Challenge :: Make This Recipe!

Okay! On Facebook tonight, a friend posted a desire to have a raw version of this cooked treat, pictured below. I am responding by ‘making up the recipe,’ without trying it! I’ve been a raw chef for 8 years, and I am pretty good at knowing what it would take.

CHALLENGE :: Who wants to make it and let me know how good it was? If you need to tweak it, go for it and let me know!

Here is a pic of the cooked version. If you make it raw, send me a photo and I’ll post it!

Cake ::

2 cups soaked nuts or seeds of your choice (discard soak water)
1 cup pitted cherries, thawed/frozen or fresh
1/3 cup agave or raw honey
1 pinch sea salt
1/2 vanilla bean
1 tsp. maca powder

Blend in food processor all cake ingredients. Roll into balls.

Raw Chocolate Coating ::

1 cup organic raw cacao powder
1 cup raw coconut oil, in liquid form
1 cup raw honey
1 pinch sea salt
1/2 vanilla bean

Blend chocolate sauce in VitaMix or other blender on high speed until smooth. Set aside in a bowl suitable for rolling the cake balls. If the chocolate coating has thickened, blend again until thin. If it’s not thin enough, add more honey and/or coconut oil. Should be liquidy enough to roll nicely. You could add water if necessary, but hopefully, this can be avoided.

Roll cake balls in chocolate sauce, place on plate, and put into fridge until chocolate coating has set up.
