Ingedients for Chewy Hazelnut Fudge Bars
1 cup almonds, soaked overnight
1/2 cup macadamia nuts
1/2 cup shredded coconut
6 medjool dates, pitted and chopped
1 apple, roughly chopped
1/4 cup maple syrup (or liquid sweetener), to taste
1 tsp mesquite powder (optional)
2 Tbsp almond or nut butter
1/4 cup cacao powder
2 Tbsp ground flax seeds
2 Tbsp hemp seeds
1/4 cup sunflower seeds (soaked 2 hours)
1/2 tsp hazelnut extract. (or 2 drops Medicine Flower Hazelnut extract).
1/2 cup water, as needed to process
dash of sea salt
1/2 cup walnuts (soaked overnight)
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 tsp cinnamon
In food processor, mix almonds and macadamia nuts. Add 1/2 of shredded coconut. Mix in and process remaining ingredients except for walnuts, goji berries, raisins and remaining coconut, adding water as needed.
Stir in walnuts, raisins and remaining shredded coconut and pulse process, leaving chunky pieces.
Using an offset spatula, spread mixture about 1/4 - 1/2" thick onto a non-stick dehydrator sheet, and dehydrate at 125 degrees F for 1 hour. (Yes, you need to dehydrate this high initially to avoid rancidity. Food will never reach that temperature).
Adjust dehydrator to 110 degrees F for about 6 hours. Peel off non-stick sheet and flip onto a mesh dehydrator tray. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
Using a dull-edged knife, score into bars or mini square bites, and dehydrate another 6-8 hours or until done. Bars should be dry on outside, and chewy inside.
