Raw Liquorice Toffee w Rhubarb Compote

Posted by: on Jun 13, 2012 | 28 Comments

I just fell in love with myself. Yes, it had everything to do with a certain Raw Liquorice Toffee.

I might even have to go get me a ring or something.

But before I do so I wish to share with you this totally and absolutely amazing Raw Liquorice that had the honor of being a guest post at Scandi Foodie a few weeks ago. For those of you who are not familiar with Maria who built this absolutely stunning and bright site I higly suggest you pay her a visit

You know I tend to rave about all kinds of Greenylicious health boosting things but quite frankly it is Raw chocolate and leafy veggie-focused most of the time. So I decided to break this pattern for Beautiful Maria and all  Scandi Foodies. Also I felt I wanted to do something extraordinare, after all, the guest post was due to Marias busy wedding schedule. (Yay, hugest congrats to Maria!)

Raw Liquorice Toffee with Rhubarb compote

This is one of those ridiculously easy raw dessert recipes that you can create in a few minutes and while the toffee rests in the freezer you have time to make the compote. I know it may seem like the weirdest collision of flavors but I´m telling you. It´s so darn delish! Now go fall in love with yourself!

Raw Liquorice Toffee
Makes 8 mid sized squares

165 g prunes
40 g virgin coconut oil, carefully melted in a bowl over hot water
40 g almond flour or ground almonds
2 tsp Raw Liquorice powder

0.5 tsp Himalayan salt
6 drops of anise seed oil
1 tsp Raw Liquorice powder (to dust the toffees with)

1. Add all ingredients to your a food processor and blend thoroughly until it has formed a smooth dough.
2. Press the dough into a a square on a baking sheet, dust with the additional liquorice powder and put in the freezer while you make the rhubarb compote.
3. Cut the toffee in squares and enjoy together with the compote.

Rhubarb Compote
400 g rhubarb, peeled & sliced
170 g apple
0.5 cup water
3 tsp arrowroot powder
10 drops of stevia concentrate (I used hazelnut flavored)
0.5 tsp pure vanilla

1. Add rhubarb, apple and water to a large saucepan and bring to a boil then let it simmer at a low temperature for 10 minutes.
2. Add arrowroot powder, stevia and vanilla and stir until incorporated.
3. Turn of the heat, put on the lid and let it rest for at least 5 minutes.

Assembly Put a small liquorice square on a pretty plate sprinkle some Himalayan sea salt over it and add some rhubarb compote, decorate with a few mint leaves. EAT!

Hugest thanks to Maria for having me over at her stunning site, such an honor! (Scandi foodie is Totally Earthsprout Approved)!

    Jättegott! Men ehm, jag vill bara varna för vissa laxerande effekter…
    Jag har alltid tyckt att lakrits har just den effekten – om det bara fungerar så hos mig skall jag låta vara osagt – och i kombination med katrinplommon – hjälp alltså! Jag är väldigt glad att jag var hemma, om man säger så. :)
    Nästa gång skall jag testa med dadlar!

    I’m so excited to find this recipe. I have rhubarb and I’ve been trying to decide what to do with it. This is a great use for it. Can’t wait to give it a try.

    Hi Elenore,

    This recipe looks delicious. I live in Stockholm and I’m trying to track down Arrowroot. I’m wondering what arrowroot is called in Swedish — and if you have a hard time finding it? I’ve checked at my local health food store, and they’ve never heard of it, but I have a couple more places to try. Just wondering if you have any tips on finding it. Same goes for Anise oil…

    Thanks for your this blog.

      Hi Kristin!

      I believe I have seen arrowroot at Goodstore in sthlm (and it is called arrowroot here as well). Good luck honey!

    I’m curious to find out what blog platform you’re using?
    I’m having some minor security issues with my latest website and I’d like to
    find something more safeguarded. Do you have any recommendations?

      I have built my webside on wordpress and I highly recommend it!

    Hi Elenore! Thanks for your reply. I found arrowroot at Ica! And I love Goodstore, so I’ll check there too. :-)

    What about anise oil? I’ve checked Ica, Gryningen and other health food stores here in Stockholm. I can only find the seeds…

    Thanks for any suggestions!!!

    Elenore, have you heard of MotherWise? They share issues from readers and they have such good forums of information and articles pertaining to natural health, breastfeeding, gentle parenting, pregnancy, childbirth and the like. I’m not a Mama or Mama-to-be, but I’m following them all the same, dammit! My mother thought it weird that I was interested in breastfeeding (learning about it, issues surrounding it, etc) because I’m not a mother, nor could I be (not enough money to raise one, and have few resources to help me, and it not being fair to foist my kid onto my parents all the time, y’know?). Their facebook site is https://www.facebook.com/MotherWiseLove; their webpage is http://motherwiselife.org/

    Hi Eleanore,
    Thank you for this wonderfully delicious looking recipe. I LOVE licqourice but haven’t had any since starting my wholefoods journey. Where do you buy your raw licqourice powder and anise oil? I live in Australia and haven’t been able to find them. Can you recommend an online option?

    +1 to the above query!! I live near the French/Swiss border…and wonder if there is a way to obtain the licorice powder and the anise oil?…..Do you have an on-line suggestion for European shoppers to find these ingredients?…Thanks so much for any enlightenment!

    This recipe = LOVE…..self-avowed licorice (and rhubarb!) fanatic!!!

      October 5, 2012 We go back about once a year, 4 daughters in the Houston area, 3 grandkids, mom up in ft. Worth, so we go see friends and family for about 4 weeks or so. This year it will most likely be when we get to st. Martin, depending on flight costs. The charter boat is called alternate latitude, great guy and he’s running specials. Take care and come on to the islands!

      I enjoyed Burton’s Planet of the Apes. God forbid someone take the original idea for a film and run in a creatively different direction. Everyone in these forums always seem to want a remake. If you want to see the old film, watch the old film. I’ve talked to a lot of people and most actually liked the film as well. It seems to me that forums are populated by negativity.

    […] Sundt slik eller skal vi kalde det sundere slik, for vi styrer uden om det raffinerede sukker og eventuelle farve og tilsætningsstoffer og bruger naturlige ingredienser som giver dig energi. Her har jeg fundet inspiration hos Josephine fra A Tasty Love Story, som igen havde fået inspiration fra Eleonore Earth.

    Eleonore, I have no idea whether you are still checking this post but I sooo want to make this toffee – i ADORE all things liquorice. I was wondering about the star anise oil, it’s not something I’ve ever seen, where do you get yours?

    Thanks and greenylicious love

      Hi Hannah! A company I love is DoTerra – try ordering there (or check in your local health food stores) Otherwise, simply omit it – it will be oh so relish still!

      Love and hugs!
