Over the past few years I've become especially smitten with raw treats, often packed with nuts and seeds, sometimes dried fruits, nut butters and coconut oil. Naturally sweetened, featuring quality ingredients, raw treats move beyond dessert and are an ideal way to pack some wholesome nutrition into a power snack for breakfast, lunch or a little after dinner treat.
Peanut butter is a weakness of mine, though I have no reason to feel guilty for that, and here it stars with walnuts, almonds, cashews, and coconut all topped with a thin layer of dark chocolate. I don't think I need to go into the blissful experience that a combination of peanut butter, nuts, chocolate and vanilla ensures. Naturally sweetened with maple syrup, you only need one small square to feel satisfied, though the temptation to eat more than you actually need is one that is hard to resist. You have been warned.
