Dates are packed with fiber, and make a great after work out food, a great source of antioxidants, and vitamins.  We all can use a  boost of antioxidants as we live in a modern full of toxins world.

And dates also are great sources of manganese, magnesium, selenium, and copper. All these elements are part of many biochemical processes in the body including hormone health. Do you have hypothyroidism? you need that selenium.

And the coconut, the walnuts, the almonds provide omega 3 fatty acids, folate, copper, magnesium, iron, manganese, carbs and proteins, and more.

So go on and make this raw vegan tiramisu and you will be glad you did.

This is the ultimate comfort food.

Let’s get “baking.”
