PRESENTING my specialty treat: Hippie Cacao!!!
I found this Allegria recipe about five years ago on the package of ‘Bob’s Redmill’ Amaranth. I had been trying to add grains other than wheat to my diet. Soon I was making batches of it and taking it to festivals around the nation, sharing it with whoever needed some nourishment and a quick boost of energy.
Allegria is a traditional Mexican sweet, which means ‘happiness’. It is usually made to celebrate dia de los Muertos.
The original recipe on the package called for: sugar, amaranth, pumpkin seeds, and blackstrap molasses. Simple ingredients just like I like it. Except I wanted to do away with the sugar and I got a bit creative with it and now I have my own recipe to share with all the chocolate lovers in the world.
I have adapted the recipe and taken out the sugar. I make each batch by hand and use only the best, freshest, organic ingredients I can find. It is an art all to itself!
So, it’s not just hippie, happy food it’s also really good for you!
My ingredient list: amaranth, pumpkin seeds, blackstrap molasses, a dose of raw melted or powdered cacao, maca powder, dried fruit such as cranberries or cherries.
