          and then there is the non-educated person down below saying "humans are omnivores"By choice only, only by choice.

            Gee, Ani, you think there is enough fat in this recipe, maybe we throw in a tub of Earth Balance or something... not fat enough...\Yikes!

              The long way I've come. I use real vanilla bean or paste and would not even bother with agave. It is basically no better than honey or white sugar. Most of what we see today on the shelves is has no benefits to it. Look for lucuma power for a sweetener with benefits.

                    Thank you for the video! I'm from Europe, and grew up on Nutella (we don't have peanut butter, we have Nutella - hehe). I too used to love this decedent spread, till my recent discovery about its nasty ingredient: Palm Oil. Turns out palm oil is in tons of chocolate & beauty products, and behind the horrendous orangutang slaughter & deforestation. The rain forrest (lungs of our planet) is getting smaller by the hour, so please ban palm oil. Check your products/ingredients before you buy! :)

                      Ani, are you still making videos regularly? Perhaps it's just me, but I feel like I haven't received any video notifications from you, in a long time... Bummed. Hope you start adding more delicious ideas to your channel. Thanks!

                        do you live to eat or eat to live. people waste their lives away by caring about the wrong things. this life confuses me.

                          Have you seen Trim Fat Maximizer? (do a google search for it) It is a quick and easy way to get rid of fat fast.

                              My coworkers laughed when I told them I would burn fat with Zippy Fat Loss, but then they saw the results. Google Zippy Fat Loss to see their reaction.

                                It would be a shame for you not to bulk up when normal people do it so easily using Cosmos Fat Loss (search for it on google).

                                        I want that xD looks super nutty tho xD
                                        I know nothing of raw foods and what its all about other then watching a Wife Swap episode where these people were self sufficient raw diet people with two kids and ate raw meat as well as everything else raw and brushed their teeth with clay... i'm sure not everyone does that though...
                                        that was the first i had heard of a raw diet.

                                          all humans are omnivores. its the ability to eat both meat and vegetation. just because someone is a vegan or vegetarian does not change the fact you are still an omnivore. just saying.

                                            Stevia is better, but I found it leaves a horrible aftertaste (for me), especially when used in cake, chocolate, and larger recipes. :/

                                                Stevia is a healthier choice over agave. Especially for diabetics or people in a pre-diabetic 'state of body'. Do check this out. Otherwise beautiful recipe and excellent presentation. Peace and much success. Thnks for sharing your knowledge and understanding.

                                                  I wondered if you were using soaked cashews? I can see the hazel nuts and filberts are dry.

                                                      @MissPonderosa I've literally never met a vegan who didn't know the risks and account for them.Veganism is not for everyone. But it is for some.So back off and stop lecturing people who know more about their lifestyle than you do. Go eat your cheeseburger and leave us to our plants.

                                                        @MissPonderosa The few do not represent the many, is my point. You're a hypocrite, seeing as YOU are obviously one of the few Non-Vegans that think they need to come in here and criticize other people's lifestyles. It seems that YOU look down on people who don't eat like you. Interesting. Do you really think your vague claims will change anyone's mind? Furthermore, do you really think that the majority of those that stick with Veganism are so uneducated about their lifestyle?

                                                          @MissPonderosa "a lot of people can't even afford to be vegan and look down upon others for not being vegan or think themselves 'better' (I know a few of these people) "
                                                          ^^You, in which you refer to the critical vegans in a way that implies that there are 'a lot' of vegans like this.

                                                            @MissPonderosa Also, humans are scavengers by biology. That means that if you want to go the 'what we were made to eat' route, you will find that numerous studies show that due to our small incisors and blunt nails, we are scavengers. Early men only ate the meat that larger predators left behind. So, no. We were not made to process mass amounts of meat daily. Though personally, I don't criticize or judge people on what they eat or don't eat, regardless of biology. Preference is individual.

                                                              @MissPonderosa You've literally missed my entire point. Not all vegans are "a lot of people" and most don't push their diet on others (though, vegans AND omnivores like that exist), so I'm not sure how much of what you said is relevant to my comment. No one's forcing you to be vegan/saying that everyone can afford it. Did you just come here to gripe? Who are you to say which reasons are legitimate? It's their life. Why are you even commenting on this if you have nothing but judgement to add?

                                                                @MissPonderosa It's also not natural to eat as much meat as our society eats, to eat chemicals and processed foods, and to eat things that don't naturally grow in your area of living. But if people are happy with that diet, let them. If someone feels that Veganism makes them happiest and they can afford it, why shouldn't they do it? No one is slamming you for your diet, don't slam vegans. Take your judgement and ignorance elsewhere.

What Ani is showing is a once a month or every two weeks treat. I use her Cashew Kream as a topping for fresh fruit (berries, apples and pears now.)

Also, there are ways to heat things while still keeping the nutrients. I don't think Ani Phyo's really being deceitful to any of the viewers, though your point is duly noted.

It's just too hard and labor intensive so unless you shell them yourself they aren't raw. Most cacao was sold as raw until it was discovered that most of it wasn't. These days "raw" can be used on any label meaning simply that the ingredients aren't roasted or cooked.You can find truly raw cacao and raw nuts if you hunt for it but It takes research and you will pay more for it.

                                                                                • ilinaeternity

                                                                                    @ilinaeternity It's deception if these foods are called raw and promoted as part of a raw cuisine when they are indeed not raw. Most cacao, nuts, agave, are not raw. If there's a doubt about any product being raw it shouldn't be included as an ingredient. That's the point. And agave and certain nuts commonly used are never raw.

                                                                                    • ilinaeternity

                                                                                      @lenny10marlin I agree with you about agave, but you can make sure that nuts and cacao are raw. It's not that hard, and this is hardly deception (except of the agave).

                                                                                            @lovescartoons there are only two brands of really raw cacao out there. The majority of "raw" cacao out there is heated well above 140 degrees. you can find info even in the raw food community on that. some raw food gurus (ie. paul nison) oppose it's use altogether for a number of reasons. once you understand how difficult it is to break down cacao, nut shells, etc. you will understand why it's so difficult to get these foods raw. Agave has to be boiled down till it becomes syrup.
