    I will check out these fabulous looking recipes. First I want you to know that I love the Sweet Cinnamon Sprouting seeds. And 2nd I created a recipe using your sprouted organic cookie crisps with Ginger snap. My recipe for Raw Dehydrated Sweet Potato Bread: About 1 cup of Sweet potato, yams, and carrots chopped and placed in VitaMix with spices: cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice all organic, and raw organic carob. I added arganic almond flour made from raw nut pulp from making raw organic almond milk. I added 1/4-1/2 cup of filtered water, can add more if needed. I added 1 Tsp sweet organic almond oil or can add raw cold pressed coconut oil. Can add more. Next for the sweet as I didn’t have any dates or raisins, I added 18 of the little ginger snap cookie crisps. Pulsed until the mixture become soft dough. I took out of blender and poured into medium sized bowl as it’s easier to work in a bowl. I added 2 Tsps of raw organic chia seeds to thicken. Can add more or can add ground flax seeds for thickener. I placed 14 small rounds formed in my hands in my dehydrator tray which has a paraflex sheet. I dehydrated these small breads at 105 degrees for 12 hours. My sweet little housemate friend loves the sweet potato bread. it is to live for. How do I post a Photo of the bread for your site? I posted the photos on my FB page with the photo of the Go Raw Cookie crisps and also the sprouted seeds; Thank you for making great raw sprouted plant based foods. One additional comment, Thanks so much for sending the Apple Cinnamon Snack Bar this time with my order and last time for the Cherry Chocolate snack bar. That one was much too sweet for me I took one bite and gave it to my housemate who loved it. I do love the Apple Cinnamon one and will order next month to get those bars. Thank you again Go Raw, Best, Sandi Cornez
