Sprouted Fig (The Smoothie Lover)

Lately i’ve been completely obsessed with paleo food and recipes. I’ve always been kind of a “nature girl”. I love spending time outside, running walking, and I love the thought of organic foods and eco-friendly things. Oooh, and I love Greenpeace and I really really really wanna participate in Earth Hour the 23th of March. Aaaaaand I often think about taking an education in something like geography and geo-informatics. You know something about the environment. Yeah, I know it sounds quite nerdy, but really – I love the thought of saving the environment :-)

Well, back to the topic – food: I think the fact, that I really like everything natural, also makes me like natural foods. I love the thought of getting back to basis. You know – eating like cavemen did. Eating the things us humans used to. This is why I like the idea about a paleo diet.

That said, I’m not going completely paleo. At least not while I live at home. But from time to time I think it’s great to eat paleo. And it actually makes you feel you have more energy :-)

Well, and as a bonus, it’s incredibly delicious!

Just look at these lovely raw, paleo, vegan cocoa energy bars.

Yummy yum! They are so good.

I got the idea from these raw brownie bites. I really like those, and then I thought: Why not making them into bars instead of bites? That means more deliciousness for me. Win!

I really have to excuse it has been such a long time since I have blogged last. I’ve been so busy. It’s spring (surprise) and spring means time for ballet performances. Wuhuu. It’s the best time of the year (though it can be a bit stressful with school and everything).

We are going to Barcelona in just 10 days :) I can’t wait!

Well – here’s the recipe :-)

Paleo Cocoa Energy Bars
6 bars

If the dates and raisins are very hard soak them in water (eventually boiling) for 5-10 minutes.
In a food processor, grind the nuts. Add the salt and cocoa powder and blend until combined. Add the dates and raisins and pulse until a dough forms.
Spread the mixture out in a little square pan. Refrigerate for 5-10 minutes then cut into bars. 
Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
Enjoy!
