Thinking about really nutritious, fresh, un-processed, raw pop tarts or raw cereal bars or raw fig Newtons? Either for breakfast, a snack or a dessert, this is it! This truly healthy recipe is very easy, simple and the family will love it. Blueberries are now in season and taste fantastic with vanilla, coconut, lemon and maple syrup!
Grind into a fine flour with a Vitamix or Coffee grinder:
1 cup sprouted and dehyrated soft wheat berries*
* Alternatives: sprouted and dehydrated oat groats (or simply grind rolled oats if this is easier), soaked, rinsed and drained nuts (make sure they are dry thoroughly – I usually store them in the fridge for a few hours in a sieve after rinsing them)
Place in a bowl and add:
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (without alcohol)
1 T extra virgin coconut oil
2 – 3 T maple syrup, according to taste
Mix together. Flatten with the palm of your hands or a roller on a flat surface. Refrigerate or freeze until hard. Carefully separate pastry from surface. Cut into long strips and store in an air tight container in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
Mix together in a food processor:
1 tsp fresh lemon juice (optional but brings out the taste of sweet blueberries)
1/4 cup dates, soak if required
1 cup fresh blueberries*
*Alternatives: You can use your choice of seasonal fruits here, like strawberries, figs, etc.
To Serve A La Minute
Place pastry strips on a flat surface. Top half of each strip with blueberry jam and fold the other half on top to form a type of sandwich. Serve immediately.
