Raw Food Recipe for Hard Candy

Raw foods are the easiest, best and most natural foods of all–unprocessed, succulent, vibrant, full of life and nourishment, with no extensive gap between the life giving forces of the plant and the living forces of our bodies. Nature has prepared these foods for us.

The sun, air, soil, and rains have all done their work, and we have the instant benefit. They are living foods–sunlight foods.

These “candies” are made of raw foods and are nourishing and sweetened with enough honey to make them a sweet, healthy treat:

1 cup ground nuts
1/4 cup brewers’ yeast
1/2 cup raw wheat germ
1/2 cup honey
2 tablespoons oil
1/2 cup raisins
Sesame seeds

Mix together all ingredients except sesame seeds. Roll into balls. Coat with sesame seeds.

Interesting recipe. I am a little leary about how the flavor of the Brewers Yeast would affect the overall taste though.
