After several requests, here is my sugar-free no-bake recipe which I adapted from Serene Allison's wonderful cookbook Rejuvenate Your Life, Recipes for Energy. I have adapted the recipe because for our health concerns we do not use the amount of honey or other natural sugars that Serene calls for in her recipe called "Buckwheaties." She has written a raw cookbook, funny sounding I know, but delicious and full of interesting information. I highly recommend it and it is available from www.aboverubies.org or 1-877-729-9861.
4 cups sprouted buckwheat KEEP READING - it is easy, truly. I buy buckwheat groats from Whole Foods Market or Jo-Ad's in McConnelsville. Soak them in a bowl (glass or stainless steel) overnight. Drain and then rinse once in the evening, and day#2 morning and evening give a quick rinse. You will see cute little tails sprout.
1 cup tahini ground up seasame seeds
1/2 tablespoon of Stevia green powder (if you are transitioning off sugar you may use 1/8 cup of honey or maple syrup but be aware that it does impact the blood sugar and disrupt the endocrine system similar to white sugar. Of course, I recommend going cold-turkey off sugar, honey, or maple syrup if you are fighting any kind of illness or working on weight management).
A good sprinkle of Carob powder - raw if you can find it but roasted is yummy too.
1/4 cup of extra virgin cold-pressed coconut oil - best place to find it is mountainroseherbs.com or Whole Foods but read labels carefully.
Place in the frig and then cut into squares or other shapes. We also eat this as a cereal in the morning with nut milks, coconut milk, or whipping cream.
Very healthy and yummy. Adapt the recipe as fits your family's needs but know that when you give up sugar your tastes will change DRAMATICALLY. When I ate sugar, it was like watching black and white TV. When I gave up sugar, it is like watching everything in Hi-Def! I will never go back because everything tastes so much better.
