Food for the soul: Sweet treats
Do you have a sweet tooth? I do, and because I try to avoid sugar, well certainly the refined stuff, sometimes it’s a little hard to find a little treat. So what do you do when you can’t find what you want? You make your own of course or you solve the problem in some way or another.
I make myself little treats that are no bake and I vary the recipes all the time so below is just an example of what I make, you will need to play around a little yourself to see what works for you.
As a guide a like to have in the pantry:
Vanilla Essence (not imitation)
Currants or sultanas
Manuaka Honey (Yes it’s expensive but so good for you)
Mayver’s Cacao Peanut spread
For this batch here I mixed together (Use blender)…
½ tsp Vanilla Essent
½ cup Almond Meal
2 TBL Mayver’s Peanut Spread
2 TBL Tahini
2 TBL Sunflower seeds
2 TBL Currants
1 TSP Mixed spice
Now blend…if it’s too runny gradually add more Almond Meal if it’s too firm add more of a liquid ingredient i.e. Tahini or honey. Then experiment and don’t be afraid to add different essences.
Roll into balls and pop into the fridge. I love it with a cup of French Earl Grey Tea!
