The almond squares did smell amazing when I woke up and are a success!
So, I will happily share the recipe with you.. it's so easy!!
2 c almonds - I tried using them unsoaked and ground them first in my BlendTec blender. I would not advise doing this with a regular blender, hard on the motor. Next time i make them I will try soaking them and just grinding first in the food processor. I am sure they will be great this way also. I was just experimenting and going for a smoother texture.
1/4 c almond butter (I used maranatha brand -raw, of course)
1/4 c honey (or agave)
1 t vanilla
1/2 t cinnamon
Line an 8"x8" pan with parchment paper or lightly oil with coconut oil. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and press into the pan. Then invert and bang down to release squares and then cut into smaller squares. I made 16 - 4x4. Dehydrate these squares overnight -they can go straight on the mesh sheets (if you don't mind the imprint they make :)
Wake up to the wonderful smell of them in the morning and Enjoy!
They're great with a big Chai Latte - raw version, with almond milk, the best!
