Pecan Pie Bars (RAW)

I just came upon an AMAZING raw food website, that I think you should all check out. It is called Nouveau Raw and it has some of the best raw food recipes, with colorful photos and easy to follow instructions. I recently made the Amede Pecan Pie Bars (titled differently in my post because I tweaked the recipe slightly) and they are SO GOOD! If you have yet to make a raw food dessert, try these out. Like all raw food these are very healthy, so you don't have to feel guilty for eating large quantities of I did, just now.

Ingredients (makes an 8 x 10 dish):
1 cup raw pecans, soaked in water for about 2 hours and drained
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp coconut oil (optional; not in the original)
1/2 cup raw agave nectar
1 1/2 cups pitted dates
1/2 tbsp vanilla extract (the original recipe calls for almond extract)
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (trust me, it tastes great, not spicy like you would think)

2 1/2 cups raw macadamia nuts
1/8 tsp sea salt

1 1/2 cups of chopped pecans (the original calls for 2 cups)

1) In a food processor (s blade), process the crust ingredients into a powder (not long enough so that the oil starts to come out of the nuts). Press this mixture into the bottom of an 8 x 10 dish, set aside.
2) For the batter, blend/ process all ingredients together until a smooth mixture is made. You might need to add a little bit of water to help it along. Spread the batter over top of the macadamia nut crust.
3) Sprinkle the chopped pecans on top, and press them down gently with a spatula.
4) Place in the fridge for about 2 hours, or more until the batter sets. Cut and enjoy!!
