Last night I made this treat.
Unfortunately, I had neither enough almond meal nor raw flaked oats, so I had to use gluten-free (but otherwise not special) oats. Fortunately, everything else I used was wonderfully fresh, organic, and raw. I didn’t add any agave or other sugars.
I made my own almond meal from the raw almonds I bought from my local farmer’s market. The vendors there informed me that you can only get true raw almonds from farmers’ markets (or straight from the farm/your garden) since stores require almonds to be pasteurized.
Also a huge discrepancy I noticed from the recipe was that I had to dry my concoction for more like 12 hours, not the 2.5 it calls for. I think this is probably because I used too much fruit and not enough of the almonds/oats so there was a lot more water to dehydrate.
Anyway it tasted great, and even my picky coworkers who are NOT into healthy eating liked them. One even came back for thirds! I’ll post a photo in a follow up post.
