Raw Almond Joy Bars

Today’s post was supposed to be about buckwheat. I have been soaking, sprouting, and grinding all week. I was just about to start putting together the buckwheat recipes when a member of the Rawmazing Facebook Group posted this recipe for almond joy bars and challenged me to make it raw. I took a quick look and snap. So much for the buckwheat!

The “crust” for these almond joy bars is a wonderful layer of almond butter and cacao powder. I used raw, organic coconut crystals for sweetening as I am really trying to keep my sweeteners as close to the source as possible. Plus they have a wonderful deep flavor. Not unlike molasses or brown sugar.

This is a pretty easy make….have at it and have fun! As with all desserts, these recipes are very calorie dense. I am not the person who is going to tell you that you can eat a raw dessert for breakfast. But as a tasty, sweet treat, raw desserts are full of healthy nutrients that typical desserts just don’t have.

    My husband and I found these absolutely delicious, but like others, I had problems keeping them in “bar” form. The coconut layer broke away if kept cold in the fridge. And if brought to room temperature the bottom almond butter/chocolate layer turned liquid soft. We ate it all anyway but can anyone offer adaptations to this recipe so they hang together? I’d love to be able to serve these to others.

    You could have easily incorporated buckwheat into this recipe. Yeah, sprouted buckwheat works amazing in desserts! I even made a cheesecake where i used buckwheat instead of cashews, and it was a hit. It can be very helpful to those following low-fat diets.

    On mine, the top layer never bound with the bottom layer and the two layers separated easily. It seemed to do this because the layers were oily (and I let them set as directed).
