Ciarra’s Primal Crunch will be a staple in your kitchen. This sweet, crunchy and slightly sticky mix is perfect for topping fruit and coconut whipped cream, making a cobbler, or pressed into a crust for tarts and pies… or just nibbling on for a sweet treat. My mission is to make this into a cookie as well. If you beat me to it, I will give you a big virtual high-five if you share it with me.
- 1/2 cup each of pecans, walnuts and almonds
- 1/2 cup medjool dates (honey can be substituted)
- 1 TBSP coconut palm sugar
- 1/2 tsp almond extract
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
Load the nuts into a food processor and let it go until they break down into what they would look like if you had just bought them already chopped. Then add the pitted dates, coconut sugar, almond extract and salt. Run on high until a sticky meal is formed. That’s all she wrote.
Now, go have your way with this sweet treat. I’m making an apple crisp with dried cranberries and fresh blueberries right now…
