I’ve been wondering what to do with the liquorice root powder I had bought earlier this year. The can was waiting in my kitchen cabinet to be discovered until I finally figured out what to do with it. Liquorice and raspberry are a common combination, but I couldn’t find any raspberry powder from my nearest healthy food store so I chose strawberry powder instead. I’m very happy with the combination of dates, nuts and seeds, liquorice and strawberry. They work really well together! I used freeze-dried strawberry powder, which is 100% real fruit and kind of sweeter in flavour and brighter in colour than normal dried strawberry powder. Especially when used for coating, it gives such a beautiful colour! Check out also my Lemon Energy Bites.
