Que Se Raw Se Raw, a local raw food takeout place, is on vacation through the end of this month. I was having trouble living without their coconut “truffles”, so I started experimenting with my food processor and after a few iterations, I arrived at this version. These candies have a mellow sweetness from agave nectar, that won’t spike your blood sugar, combined with a satisfying nutty, coconut flavor. Give them a try and let me know how you like them!
