Creating Healthy Habits
2/3 cup almonds, soaked for 4-8 hours
1/2 cup raisins, soaked in 2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup (3.5 oz) cacao butter, melted
6 tbsp carob powder
1 tbsp orange peel
1/2 tbsp lime peel
3 tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice
2 tbsp lemon juice (for soaking raisins â€“ as above)
6 cardamom pods
â€¢ Prepare the cacao butter by melting it gently in a bowl placed over a pan of simmering water.
â€¢ Chop the almonds into small pieces.
â€¢ Split the cardamom pods and remove the seeds. Crush them into a fine powder with the mortar and pestle.
â€¢ Put the chopped almonds, cardamom powder, soaked raisins (and any residual lemon juice), orange peel, lime peel and carob into a bowl. Mix well until everything is carob-coated.
â€¢ Pour the melted cacao butter and orange juice over the dry ingredients and mix really well so everything is coated with cacao butter and all the carob is worked in.
â€¢ Divide mixture between 12 small muffin cases or paper fairy cake cases.
â€¢ Optional â€“ lick the bowl!
â€¢ Refrigerate pies for at least 4 hours before you enjoy.
These are a heavenly treat â€“ a raw vegan version of mince pies thatâ€™s chocolaty too. Great for Christmas or any time of year!
