This recipe was inspired by one I saw on Paleo in Portland’s blog and it looked too delicious not to give a go. Now, sweet tooths (toothed?? Is tooths the plural? Teeth? Sweet teeth?!?!) just cool your jets (that’s you Travis-3-cakes-Cooper), this is a TREAT not an “always” food. It is pretty high in fat, and even though they are all very GOOD fats, you probably don’t want to eat the entire lot in one go. I used my homemade CAC (Cashew, Almond and Coconut) butter but you can use any nutbutter you fancy.
1/2 cup cocount oil
1 cup Nut butter
Stevia to taste (you can use a tbs or 2 of honey if you like)
1/2 tsp organic vanilla powder or real vanilla
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
1-2 tsp ground ginger (I used 2 but I LOOOVVEE ginger)
Melt everything together in a saucepan over low heat. Pour into a prepared 8X8 pan and toss in the freezer to harden. It takes a few hours to harden. Remove from freezer and cut into squares. I keep mine in a ziplock in the freezer, but the fridge is fine too.
