I got this bag of puffed brown rice from a gal at the Friday Market, in front of the Juice Factory. Nice to have something different and crunchy in my recipes!
- 6 dates (soaked for 10 minutes, pitted and mashed, save the date water)
- 1/2 c. tahini
- 1/2 c. almond butter
- pinch vanilla powder or 1 tsp.vanilla extract
- 2 T. coconut oil
- 1/4 c. sunflower seeds
- 1 c. puffed brown rice
- 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1 pinch sea salt
- 3 heaping T. chocolate pieces or nibs
Directions – Combine everything in your food processor and pulse until you reached the desired consistency. Some people like to see all the little chunks in there. Press into a parchment-paper covered, or oiled brownie pan, and cut into squares. Chill.
Word of the Day – ausencias – absences
Tip of the Day – Add cacao powder if you want them more chocolaty!
