Ingredients:

  • ½ cup hazelnuts, soaked overnight and dehydrated
  • 6 dried figs, soaked for a few hours, drained and chopped
  • 2 ripe bananas, peeled
  • ¼ cup golden flax seeds, ground into a powder
  • 1 Tbs. raw carob powder
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract or ¼ tsp. vanilla powder
  • ½ cup fresh raspberries

Place hazelnuts in a food processor with an S blade and process until they are finely ground. Add the figs and process until the mixture begins to stick together. Transfer to a bowl. Place bananas, carob, flaxseed and vanilla in a food processor and blend together until very smooth and creamy. Serve the desert either layered in a tall glass and topped with raspberries, or, if you have a small heart-shaped pan with a removable bottom, then place the nut layer first quite tightly, followed by the banana layer. Place in a freezer for an hour for the top layer to solidify a little, remove the dessert from the pan, place on a serving plate and top with raspberries. Share with your loved one!

Note: Preparation time is 20 minutes plus time for soaking and dehydrating
