A few days ago...I was craving sweets desperately. And this was the result...and I tell ya, I'm making it again. These seriously taste like the typical cereal or popcorn bars that everyone always brings to your average potluck, or you know, the recipes that are always on the back of cereal boxes or peanut butter jars. In fact, that's where the inspiration came from...I just rawified one of those SAD favorites. Hope you enjoy!
Sticky Cereal Slices
3/4 c. of liquid honey (or agave if you're vegan)
2/3 c. raw peanut butter (or do what I did, using organic peanut butter, which is just ground up peanuts)
Combine the two, mixing well. And then mix the following into it.
3 c. of raw cereal or granola (the simpler the better, something like "Buckwheat Crispies")
1/2 c. of shredded, unsweetened coconut
1/2 c. dried cranberries
1/4 c. raisins
Toss together and then place in a lightly oiled (coconut oil or olive oil) 8" square pan. Freeze until firm and then slice. Makes 16 squares roughly.
After I placed the squares in the pan I added a Carob Syrup (just carob and maple syrup mixed) over top. Totally scrummy!
And because I'm giving you a really sweet treat recipe, I'll give you something to balance you out. Admit it. Most of us eat too many sweets, raw or not, so here is something that is an example of a better daily staple.
I was totally surprised how good this actually tasted.
1 head of romaine lettuce
Put this in your blender with a little water, until the Romaine is totally liquid. Then add the following:
2 TB. of raw honey (or agave)
1/2 ice cube tray of ice
Blend and enjoy.
That's what I had yesterday, but this morning I made it without the banana and it was still really good, just with the Romaine and honey. Simple, but lovely.
