Toffee Bars with Goji Berries
Makes 12-16 Bars
For the bar base:
- 4 Cups Pecans
- 2 Cups Raw Cacao
- 1 Cup Raw Agave Nectar or Raw Honey
- 1 Tbsp. Cinnamon
- 1 Tsp. Sea Salt
For the topping:
- 1 Cup Almonds
- 1 Cup Goji Berries
- 1 Cup Espresso Beans (Optional, replace with Cacao Nibs if preferred)
- ½ Cup Coconut Butter
- ½ Cup Raw Cacao
- 1/3 Cup Raw Agave Nectar or Raw Honey
- 1 Tsp. Sea Salt
In a basic food processor with the s-blade in place process the nuts from the base into a basic meal. Add in the cacao and spices and pulse until well combined. Then add the desired sweetener while the machine is in operation. A crust or dough ball should begin to form. Turn off food processor once dough ball is formed. Line a dehydration tray with a mesh screen and a nonstick drying sheet of your choice. Then transfer dough ingredients onto the dehydration tray and press out evenly to cover the tray. Then in a mid-sized bowl whisk together the cacao, sweetener of choice, and sea salt until well combined. Using an offset spatula spread out this mixture over the bar base. Then in the food processor with the s-blade attachment in place pulse the remaining topping ingredients until chopped down to smaller pieces. Take this topping and sprinkle over the bars. Once completely assembled place dehydration tray in the dehydrator set at 118 degrees. Dehydrate at 118 degrees for 2 hours until the toffee bar has become cake like. Serve warm or freeze and serve cold. Store leftovers for up to 21 days in the refrigerator.
