THE BASE

1/3 cup caramel date paste

1/2 cup cacao powder

1 cup almond pulp from almond milk

1/2 tsp. Himalayan salt

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Fold in 1/3 cup prepared buckwheat groats (Soak raw groats in enough water to cover them for at least 1 hour.  Drain and rinse.  Dehydrate until crunchy. )

Spread base in an 8 X 8 pan lined with parchment paper.  Put in the freezer.

This base is creamy when thawed.  Another great base is the one used in the raw Pecan Turtle Bites recipe.  The base will be more “tart crust” like.

A trick taught to me by a dear friend.  Works great when working with fresh herbs.
