Raw Sugar Plum Fairies

December 22, 2011

Only a few days left until Christmas! Are you ready? Have you done all your shopping?

No?

Me either.

I’m actually stressing out a bit. I feel like there’s so much to do before Christmas and the New Year and such… 2011 flew by in a complete blur! Where did the year go, anyway?

Short post today as this recipe needs no real words. Plus, most of you probably don’t even read what I write, you just look at the pictures.

I don’t blame you. The pictures really are yummy, aren’t they?

Anyway, here’s a raw, vegan, and Paleo recipe that’s fun, festive, and kinda like a healthy fruit cake… only these little balls taste good.

The name is inspired by the holidays and of course, the Nutcracker, with those cute little sugar plum fairies running around. Really, I don’t know why I named them sugar plum fairies, but it sounded good to me.

And they do contain dried plums. Sprinkle with a little fairy dust and you’ve got yourself a sugar plum fairy.

Make these as a tasty alternative to most holiday snacks and desserts. This recipe contains only raw, unprocessed ingredients, which makes for a healthy treat any time of the year. Not to mention, they’re quick and easy, no stress here.

Is your holiday season stress-filled or super relaxed?

What is your 2 favorite parts of the holidays?

Prunes! Yummy 🙂

You know, even when my holidays are relaxed, I feel all of the stress around me. So in theory, this is a relaxing time for us, but I still feel a bit stressed and anxious. That said, all presents were done, wrapped (and many shipped out) weeks ago! So I’m feeling prepared.

Happy holidays Lori!!

Wow, yummy, and no electric tools so super-Paleo! Coriander–what an interesting ingredient.

And I don’t look at the pictures as much as the words myself!
I’m pretty much mostly on top of my holidays prep list, but I have a zillion other things I’m not on top of!

My holiday season is surprisingly relaxed this year, but I think it’s more just in comparison to the fact that I was in school last year around this time, so by contrast things are eaaaaasy breezy! 😉 I’m just chomping at the bit for Christmas so Alex can open his badass gifts I got him!!!

I read what you write! 🙂
I hate the stress of Xmas. I’m not doing presents this year, at least…that takes a load off my shoulders.

These look excellent; toss a few my way! Prunes are so underrated.

Yum! Interesting there is coriander in there. I just this year discovered prunes. I don’t know I’d been living without them!
