Raw Millionaire Bites
Millionaire bites made from cashew, dates and cacao
whole rolled oats
organic coconut oil
raw cacao powder
Ground the oats and cashew together until fine and then mix in 3 tbsp of melted coconut oil.
Combine well until it is paste like.
Place into the bottom of a 9x9 tin/silicone.
Press down firmly and put into the freezer to set
Blend together the dates and 2-3 tbsp of coconut oil until it is a smooth caramel like texture. Add in a couple of tbsp of honey or agave nectar and mix well.
Take the base out of the freezer and add on the date mixture. Press down with the back of a spoon and smooth over.
Place back in the freezer for about half hour
In a saucepan on the hob place the cacao powder, 6 heaped tbsp of coconut oil and 2 tbsp agave or honey.
Melt together until runny. Mix well.
Take the base back out of the freezer and top with the cacao mixture.
Add in some crushed cashew for that added crunch
Place back in the freezer
Once all set and the chocolate has hardened, take out of the freezer and cut into bite size pieces
Store them in the freezer or fridge and eat as and when. They can become quite sticky when left out and will melt quite quickly. Individually wrap them in clinfilm or tin foil
A raw food diet is about eating mostly or all unprocessed and uncooked foods so you get all the nutrients without the dangerous additives. It’s a great way to cleanse the body, your skin becomes a lot clearer, you will have a lot more energy and it improves your digestion. It means cutting out refined sugar and only eating food that is raw or heated up in a dehydrator that is below 110 Fahrenheit.
I took the steps to removing refined sugar from my diet over a year ago. I did miss the sugar taste at first but after a while my taste buds changed – for the better.
Raw food doesn’t have to be all fruit and veg, you can still enjoy deserts and treats.
Making raw snacks are easy to do and have a fulfilling taste. Take a look at our raw date bars here
These little bars of goodness are so delicious full of nutty flavours with a rich deep, dark chocolate
125g ground rolled oats or oat flour
125g ground cashew nuts
60ml maple syrup/rice syrup
2 tablespoons coconut oil
350g dates – medjool
95g merdian smooth peanut butter
1 tbsp coconut oil
20ml water (if needed)
Raw Chocolate topping
100g coconut oil
60g cacao powder
4 tbsp maple syrup (50ml)
- Make the base. Grind up the oats if you do not have oat flour in a blender. Add in the cashew nuts with the coconut oil and syrup – if like me, your blender is too small then grind the oats and cashew nuts separately and then combine a bowl with the coconut oil and syrup. It should be the consistency of dough, but not too wet. Press the base mixture into a square or silicone tin. Place into the freezer to set.
- Make the caramel. Blend the dates, peanut butter and coconut oil together – I blended the dates first and then mixed in the peanut butter and oil. Chop the peanuts into pieces and add them into the mixture (you could keep them whole if you prefer) Add on to the top of the base and place back in the freezer.
- Make the chocolate. Melt some coconut oil and in the cacao powder and maple syrup. Mix together. Pour on to the caramel and place it back into the freezer to finish setting. Leave for a few hours or overnight. Cut into chunks.
Raw snickers need to be stored in the fridge or freezer as the chocolate melts.
These little snicker bars are so tasty and very Moorish. You get the creamy texture from the base and caramel, the sour bitter taste from the chocolate and sweetness from the dates and syrup.
