Try this sweet spread on your German bread instead of jam or nougat cream. Fun to eat and fun to make, it freezes well, too. Just form it into a roll like cookie dough for a quick pick-me up snack.
Makes 1 cup of breakfast spread.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
- 2-3 T. hot water
- 2/3 c. chopped dates or date sugar
- 1/3 c. raw, whole almonds
- 2 T. cocoa nibs, toasted or 2 T. Dutch cocoa powder
- 2 T. raw sunflower seeds
- 1 T. butter (optional)
Pour the hot water over the dates and let sit for 15 minutes to soften. Place all ingredients in a food processor and mix until desired consistency, scraping down the sides often. Add a little more water, if necessary. It will be easier to get a smooth spread if you use date sugar which is, however, hard to find.
Melt butter and mix into spread, if desired.
Spread on bread. Refrigerate or freeze leftovers.
