These are little balls of happiness for those of us who still miss chocolate crispy cake. I can now indulge in a little bit of my childhood without the guilt. Actually these remind me of refrigerator cake too, because the chocolate has an almost fudgey texture which contrasts delightfully with the crispy buckwheaties. They’re sweet without being cloying, and then you get a sudden hit of extra sweetness when you encounter one of the raisins embedded in there. For me, these crispy cakes solve the problem of what to eat at about 7pm when I get the nibbles for something chocolatey. I don’t always care for raw chocolate in bar form, and find chocolate cake a bit heavy eaten late in the day. These hit the spot because I get the sweet chocolate hit without the heaviness. Like most raw goodies, these have a high nutritional value too, as the chocolate gives me a dose of magnesium, there's calcium in the carob and there are Omega 3s in the hemp. Cakes that are practically medicinal! I wouldn't eat them later than about 7pm though because they also give energy and I don't want to be bouncing off the walls at bedtime. Nice for a mid-morning boost when lunch seems a long way off or when you have a huge ironing pile that makes you droop just looking at it. Raw Living could deliver these with one of those calling cards with a man’s silhouette on it (though some readers probably won’t remember those old adverts) because this lady certainly loves…chocolate crispy cakes!
With just four ingredients - dates, sesame seeds, cacao and coconut - you would be forgiven for questioning just how good these little chocolatey discs could possibly be.
My suggestion is this; don't question, just try one.
They are dark and delicious, light and moreish. Made from only pure, natural, organic ingredients. There's a lovely balance between sweetness of the dates and the intensity of the cacao. Easy to transport, perfect for a quick energy boost. I think that they would be a really good thing to keep in your bag when you're on the go. Especially since they don't do silly things to your blood sugar levels like other snacks can. Mind you, I wouldn't know, since mine didn't last long enough for me to test out my theory!
I did manage to save a few of them, though, and I can confirm that they make a wonderful addition to any raw chocolate or sweet recipe! They lend a slight 'cornflake cake' element to the proceedings! I mixed some into the Caramaca recipe from Raw Living. This fudge is already one of my favourite things ever, and really, you can't go too wrong with an extra chocolatey and coconutty crunch!
The mellow birds of Raw chocolate. SuperMagic is a layerlicious DuoPolitain bar. It's a two toned chocolate bar comprising of a layer of Raw Living's famous Be the Change Bar (containing Etherium Gold and Crystal Manna) and the new Truth bar (a white chocolate bar containing Mucuna and Aulterra). That is a lot of super foods.
Texturally, it's nice and hard like all of Raw Living's choc bars, no coconut butter in here… the combination of dark and light make for a less buzzy, more mellow and smooth chocolate flight. As I have mentioned before, I'm one of those sensitive souls for which too much cacao can bring on the jitters, but in this combination it's not too much stimulation and all the right frequencies, perfect any time of day when you fancy a sweet, uplifting treat.
