My Celiac daughter has been amazing with adjusting her diet since learning about this 4 years ago. I feel like it is my mission, sometimes, to show her that life is possible and extraordinary, when you make it so. Never give up and don’t stop believing!
I created this recipe out of necessity, as we are constantly looking for healthy, safe and delicious snacks to make life as a paleo kid more fun and travel friendly.
2 cups of pitted dates
1/2 cup of organic hemp
1/8 cup toasted almonds
1/8 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1/4 tsp of cinnamon
In your food processor, combine hemp and dates until one big ball forms. Toast almonds and grind into course almond meal. Combine with coconut and cinnamon in a shallow dish. As long as it is well mixed, spoon about 1/2 tbsp into a sticky ball. Roll in the almond meal and coconut mixture and then into a small ball. I store in a sealed container in the fridge to keep fresh.
It should make approximately 30 balls. Enjoy!
The recipe for the HaVa bar was a long time coming. My girls really like the bars that I make and I have been trying many variations. This recipe came out of trial and error.
I am assuming that you will be using the best ingredients that you can, for your family. I choose to use mostly organic for all my recipes.
It is simple and tasty. Not too expensive, but chock-full of healthy things. This is the first time putting this recipe out, so I may update as it evolves.
2 cups of good quality dates
1/3 cup of pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup of hemp seeds
1/3 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/4 cup of unsweetened cranberries
3 tablespoons of almond butter
1 tablespoon of honey
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
Put the dates and pumpkin seeds in food processor and pulse until they are a paste like consistancy.
Add in hemp, coconut, chia and mix together. It should start to ball up. Now add in honey, almond butter, cinnamon and cranberries and pulse until well mixed. You may have to use a scraper or spoon to get mixture back into the blades and continue until well mixed.
Place in something like a 9X9 pan and then store in freezer. Cut up and keep in freezer.
These are excellent snack items and keep well. They don’t last long in my house and are fairly easy to make.
