This is a 100% living raw recipe and a delicious alternative to traditional halvas. I served this at my birthday gathering and it passed the "greek" test. In a land full of a million kinds of halvas that means this recipe is a keeper!!
Raw Carob Halvas
1/2 cup un-toasted sesame seeds
3 TBSP of water (maybe more or less depending on consistency of tahini)
1/2 cup dried coconut
1/2 cup raw carob powder (or raw cacao)
1 TBSP agave nectar
1 TBSP honey
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
dried coconut for garnish
1. Soak sesame seeds for 6 hours in water, drain and puree. (This is raw tahini!)
2. Blend tahini, with remaining ingredients until evenly mixed
3. Place in a baking dish at least 4 inches tall (allowing you to have your halvas at a height of 2 inches)
4. Refrigerate for about 3 hours and when ready to serve, garnish with dried coconut.
