Little Scoops of News
We are switching gears a little. Our sales will now start on Wednesdays. Because of this, you’ll receive your email news on Tuesdays. Stay tuned for a lot of new items available on Thursday the 15th. Here’s a sneak preview of Goji berries, imitation bacon bits, chocolate rock candy and sanded anise candy. More previews to come next week. Also watch for a great meat and cheese sale coming up – starting Wednesday 5.14!
Chewy Chocolate Bars – gluten, dairy, egg, and sugar free
Someone gave me this recipe along with a plate of samples. One taste of these little bites and I had to make my own (and hide the rest of the samples). While this probably makes 15 bars/bites, I’d recommend doubling the recipe. It’s easier than making more in a few days!
1 c. almond butter*
3 c. unsweetened coconut*
2/3 c. cocoa powder
2/3 c. honey*
1 t. salt
1/2 t. vanilla
1/2 c. almond flour (optional)
All ingredients available at The Country Cupboard
Place all ingredients in a food processor or mixer and blend until combined. Spread in pan to desired thickness. Refrigerate until firm. Cut into bars and serve.
Notes: Try our almond butter which is delicious or make your own with our almond butter stock – warm, fresh almond butter is so good! Try this with raw honey. If the texture of coconut bothers you, try blending it first in a blender or food processor to make it “coconut flour”. I like to make these into bites or balls and freeze for a great snack.
