Today we are excited to introduce you to Liz, a woman who really bakes!
Liz comes from a long line of creative Jewish bakers and has created delicious cakes and pastries for as long as she can remember. Sweet Things by Lizzie is a resource you definitely want to check out. We are very happy that Lizzie became our friend and has agreed to partner with us in finding out how to make delicious but healthy treats from our soon-to-be baking chocolate line.
Here is the first recipe, which is a combination of so many wonderful, vegetarian, organic and good-for-you ingredients. A masterpiece which the K'UL team has successfully replicated today. It was such an awesome experience, and so easy. Takes 20-30 min. and anyone can do it. Try it out!
1 cup old fashioned organic rolled oat
1 and 1/2 cups pitted dates
1/2 cup K’ul Brazil variety unsweetened baking chocolate melted
4 tablespoons organic honey
1/4 cup raw fresh coconut
1/3 cup whole raw almonds
2/3 cup raw pecans
1/4 cup organic crunchy peanut butter
1/2 cup K’ul Brazil variety unsweetened chocolate melted
2 tablespoons organic honey
1 tablespoon organic peanut butter
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. On a single baking sheet, place the oats and almonds. Bake for 12 minutes until lightly browned. Cut the almonds in large chunks and set aside. Soak the dates in hot water for about 15 minutes until they are nice and soft. Line an 8×8 inch pan with parchment or wax paper. In a food processor, add dates and pulse until they become a paste. Add the pecans and pulse again until a ball forms. Add the melted chocolate, peanut butter, honey and coconut. Scrape down the bowl and with wet fingers, pat into your prepared pan. Push the almond pieces into the top of the dough. In a microwave safe pyrex cup, melt the other 1/2 cup chocolate and tablespoon of peanut butter for a minute. Take it out and add the honey. Drizzle it all over the bars, working quickly as it tends to get thick. Put the pan into the fridge for several hours before cutting into bars. Store them in an air tight container in the fridge.
