When it comes to sweet treats free from additives and preservatives, raw chocolate is the ultimate. The best of the best, the one that sits at the head of the ‘raw dessert’ family. You can’t go past a good dose of raw chocolate!
But what is a ‘raw dessert’? Simply put, a short list of whole unprocessed ingredients, that are combined together while getting their sweetness from all natural sweeteners. They do not require cooking or baking, and are able to be set via the fridge or freezer. Oh and most important, they taste great too!
With so many wonderful whole unprocessed products available and an abundance of recipes (such as this one!), it’s easy to create and indulge in raw desserts, free from the additives and preservatives that your body does not require. Prepare to be blown away, when you see how easy and tasty these Sesame Pecan Raw Chocolates are! Its all about the simplicity here! Don’t like nuts? That’s ok, substitute them for some dried fruit or just leave them out.
They are soft but crunchy and will melt in your mouth from the first bite. So, if you need a little extra chocolate in your life, that your body will love, these Sesame Pecan Chocolates will hit the spot. I challenge you not to eat them all at once!
