Summary: Cook your porridge in cow milk, goat milk, vegan milk or water depending of your preference, then add toppings of your choice.
Summary: Raw chocolate bark is simply a thin layer of raw chocolate covered with various toppings. Variations are endless. You could simply pour the still liquid raw chocolate onto a tray and break into chunks once set, or like I do here, use a silicon heart mould. In this case, the chocolate heart would be a real show stopper if served with tea and coffee at a dinner party, or on Valentines Day.
Summary: Although commercial trail mixes are widely available, I like to make mine, so that it has exactly what I like, and none of what I don't like so much. Also known as GORP (Good Old Raisins and Peanuts or Granola, Oats, Raisins and Peanuts) in the trekking and hiking community, trail mix, a combination of nuts and seeds and dried fruits, sometimes with chocolate, is the perfect snack while hiking, as it is lightweight, does not require refrigeration and provides a quick energy boost from the dried fruits and more sustained energy from the fats and the protein in the nuts and seeds. In my own version, I use my favourite nuts : creamy brazil and macadamia nuts, coconut chips, super healthy goji berries, super sweet raisins, super mellow mulberries, and finally, I add raw cacao nibs, which are the original chocolate chips, for a cacao hit.
For a fully raw trail mix, be sure to use raw coconut chips.
