OK, so I realise that there's something inherently wrong about this blog post, I just can't figure out what it is. I <3 raw food and I <3 deep frying, so surely it's all good?
I started eating Nakd bars as soon as they came out and have consumed several hundred of their larger bars over the past few years (mostly as breakfast - I'm generally raw these days before 12). Their new smaller bars are alright, despite looking like something suspiciously different. I like the cashew type the most, however due to their size they're not quite a meal replacement.
So how better than served deep fried in cider batter?
I admit, I did this as a joke. I'd just made my dinner and was on the hunt for something to deep fry for dessert. I am however extremely surprised by how good it tastes!
It's not in the oil long enough to get really hot, but the heat it does get melts it slightly and makes the date become quite toffee like.
The batter is from a recipe I posted in December, using cider (hard cider) instead of beer.
I don't really have anything else to say, other than that I'm definitely making this again!! :D
