Ingredients

For the Chocolate Portion:

1 Cup of Raw Cacao Powder

6 Tablespoons of Coconut Milk

5 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil

1/4 Cup of Almond or Cashew Butter

2 Tablespoons of Maple Syrup or Raw Honey

1 Teaspoon of Vanilla

3 Tablespoons of Maple Syrup or Raw Honey

1/2 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract

a pinch of Sea Salt

Directions

  1. Place Mini Muffin Cup liners in a 24 count Mini Muffin pan
  2. In a Medium bowl with an electric mixer, mix together all the chocolate ingredients, and set aside.
  3. In a food processor, grind the raw pecans until they are a fine crumb consistency. Add in the honey, vanilla and salt, and pulse until it holds together when you squeeze it.
  4. Place 1 teaspoon of chocolate mixture in the bottom of each muffin cup, and press flat and evenly with your fingers.
  5. Scoop a scant teaspoon of pecan filling onto each muffin cup and press flat and evenly to cover the chocolate bottom.
  6. Finely, add the remaining chocolate mixture to the tops of each chocolate butter cup and press evenly. It will be a scant teaspoon for each. It’s okay if they are not perfectly covered. They are pretty that way.
  7. Freeze for 30 minutes.

Store in the Freezer or Refrigerator in a sealed container.

Scrumptious Strawberry Mango Fruit Roll Ups

Fruit Roll Ups 4

Make some of these Scrumptious Strawberry, Mango fruit roll ups and store them in an airtight container for a quick, sweet and chewy, all natural snack.

Fruit Roll Ups 2

I make these in a food dehydrator and slice them into strips that are then rolled up in parchment paper and tied with a string. They are sweet and a little tart.

My kids love these packed in their lunches or as a grab and go snack. Clean and simple deliciousness!

Fruit Roll Up 1

Scrumptious Strawberry Mango Fruit Roll Ups

Ingredients:

2 Pints of Fresh Organic Strawberries

2 Ripe Mangoes

2 Tablespoons of Raw Honey

1 Tablespoon of Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice

1 Tablespoon of Gelatin

2 Tablespoons of Hot Water

A Pinch of Sea Salt

Directions:

Clean and hull the strawberries and place them in a high speed blender. Clean, peel and pit the mangoes and add them to the blender with the strawberries. Add the honey, lemon juice and salt. Blend until pureed. Now you will add the gelatin. Heat 2 tablespoons of water in your microwave until very hot. Whisk in the gelatin until it is foamy. Pour this into the blender with the strawberry mango mixture and blend until smooth and incorporated.

Set out six dehydrator trays (my dehydrator is an Excalibur) and line them with non-stick drying sheets (like these). Pour the fruit roll up mixture evenly onto six sheets. Pick up the sheets and swirl by tipping them to spread then out into 8″ circles.

Dehydrate at 135° degrees for approximately 18 hours, or until they are no longer tacky in the center but not crispy. They should still be pliable.

Remove the fruit roll ups from the dehydrator and cool. After they are cool, using kitchen scissors or a sharp knife, slice each roll up into strips. Cut parchment the same width as the fruit strips and roll them up with the parchment. Tie with a string. Place them in a sealed container and store at room temperature.
