Silly Season

T'is the season to be jolly! The big day seems to be approaching much quicker than most of us would like, and panic mode is kicking in! And as it seems Christmas tends to revolve around food, food and more food so it is only appropriate that we have a very special Christmas recipe...  

Raw Orange & Ginger Bread Man

  • 100g cashew nuts or nut of choice
  • 100g almonds
  • 100g dates
  • 100g prunes or figs
  • About 3-4 tablespoons of honey/agave
  • 2 tsp. ground or grated ginger
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • Zest of one orange
Process the cashew nuts and almonds in a food processors or a blender, such as the Bio Chef Blender, and process until fine crumb or meal.

Slowly add remaining ingredients whilst processing, drizzle the honey or agave towards the end to turn mixture into a dough ball.

Refrigerate mixture in plastic wrap overnight to firm and set miture.

Roll out mixture with a rolling pin until approx 5mm thick. Use gingerbread man shape to cut out shape of Gingerbread Man.

Place onto Bio Chef Dehydrator Trays and dehydrate for 12 hours, you will need to turn half way to make sure the are chewy and crispy.

Decorate and enjoy... yum yum!

How about pack a few into a little goodie bag with cute wrapping for an easy, cheap and thoughtful pressie!
