Recipe Directions

place the honey in a bowl with the tahini, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla. mix together. do this BEFORE you mix the nuts in…the honey softens as you stir and it is easier to mix without the chunky stuff first. then, add the nuts, seeds, and coconut. mix it together. when it is thoroughly mixed, stop mixing. (ha ha ha)
then, you can eat it. it tastes great even before dehydrating. probably a quarter of the recipe is eaten by the time it’s all on the dehydrator trays when i make it anyway! but to get the full caramel-y effect, spread onto dehydrator trays lined with teflex sheets (or plain old cellophane or waxed paper), and dehydrate at 105 degrees for about 24 hours. it will melt down at first, so don’t get it too close to the edges of the tray or you might have a hell of a sticky mess on your hands.
serve it warm over fruit or ‘ice cream’, or scrape it into balls and refrigerate. then, eat the holy living daylights out of it!

Jamestheraw's Thoughts

when i tasted this, the first thing i thought was, “oh, my god. i think i can die now.” you can substitute any nuts you like, really…i think walnuts and pecans would taste good too, but i’m a coconut and cashew whore, so i didn’t even think about that. i suppose the addition of raw cacao or carob would be awesome also…although i dig this recipe so much i can’t imagine it being any better…lol

You know I actually just got up & made this. Definately a cure for the sweet tooth. Man that stuff is good! Of course I ate some of it, before putting it into the fridge. Going to try the refrigerator instead of the dehydrator.

This is fabulous- just a spoonful is perfect for my pregnancy sweet tooth cravings! Forget about the dehydrator! I am keeping it in a jar just so I can spoon it out of every time the craving hits me1 So so good! Thanks for sharing!

oh, wow!!!! I am eating this right now (there will be no dehydrating for this bathc), and it is so fantastic!!! It actually reminds me of apple pie for some reason, probably the cinnamon-salty-nutty flavor. Thanks for sharing!

i'm all about chocolate caramel...i'm going to try that next time! if i were going to use agave, i might grind like 1/2 of the nuts to a powder first, in a coffee grinder, and mix that with the honey to thicken it up a bit and absorb some of the moisture. you could try adding some ground flax seeds also...the main issue would probably be the thinness of the agave, i suppose. i'm going to experiment with that in light of the new cruelty issues concerning my little bee-friends...lol

I wonder if agave would work here as a substitute for honey?

Sounds awesome! You know what would go good with this? Some mesquite and cacao powder or nibs and... Chocolate caramel!

A suggestion: To speed up the ease of mixing, place the mixing bowl in warm/hot water "bath" as you mix this up. The warmth will "melt" the tahini and honey making them easier to mix.
