Total time
Basic raw vegan halvah (halva) recipe – world-known oriental dessert, made healthy and raw!
Serves: 6 servings
  • 200g raw sunflower seeds
  • 3 Tbsps healthy sweetener of choice (I used honey, but you can use agave or maple syrup)
  • 2 Tbsps coconut or cocoa oil, left at room temperature to reach a creamy consistency
  • 1 Tbsp tahini
  • ½ Tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  1. Put the raw sunflower seeds in your blender and blend well until they have a flour consistency.
  2. Add the other ingredients and pulse until well blended together.
  3. Cover a form (I used a rectangle tart form) with a plastic wrap. Add the composition and spread evenly.
  4. Put the halvah in the fridge and leave it there for at least 40 minutes.
Note: The raw vegan halva will have a more creamy and moist consistency, than the classic halvah recipe. This didn’t bother me at all. It is easy to slice and its taste is very similar to the real halvah dessert.
