Flatten out in the pan and chill in the refrigerator. 4)
Remove and cut into squares. Best served right out of the refrigerator.Andrew's Note:
I haven't tried this recipe, but it sounds like a nice treat for special occasions and holidays.
However, based on the ingredient list it's unlikely to be easy to digest and not something you should be eating on a regular basis on a healthy raw food diet
The healthiest way to eat is to consume monomeals
of whole fruits
Well-combined salads with tasty low fat raw dressings and sauces
on them are also nice.
So enjoy this recipe, but just remember that it's a treat, not something to be eaten regularly.
