Three Raw Treats

Hello Everyone, Wishing you all safe blessings if you are in the path of Irene! A couple days ago, I was in the mood to throw together some goodies for us to munch on. First up, was Chilled Raw Chocolate Fudge, the recipe came from here. Up next is the Crumbly Crust Balls, at least that's what I call them and this recipe is adapted from Heathy's Peach Cobbler Crust recipe here. What I did was take 2 cups pecans, 1/2 cup coconut, 1/2 cup dates, pinch of salt, added some raisins and dark choccie chips. Process all in food processor and roll into balls...really good. And lastly, Snowballs....Combine 1/2 cup each of whatever you like, I used pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, almond butter, honey, sunflower seeds, raisins, dates. Once combined, make into balls and roll in coconut.....really easy! In the tall glass are the Snowballs and the little glass is the Crumbly Crust Balls!
