Kokanee Squares (or circles)


I decided to name these Kokanee squares (circles)after Kokanee Glacier Park. I can see one of the mountain peaks from my house and it gives me inspiration for many things including my baking.

First layer:

2 1/4 cups of pecans (sprouted or crispy pecans) for better digestion.

Put pecans in a food processor and process until very fine.

1/4 cup butter

1 1/2 cups arrowroot powder

2 Tbls. Rapadura or Sucanant (whole cane sugar)

1 tsp. sea salt

1 ½ tsps. Vanilla extract

2 eggs

Add all of the above ingredients to the pecans and process until well blended. Press into a 9” x 13” glass pan and bake at 350 degrees for 15 min.

Second layer:

1 cup butter

2/3 cup honey

¾ cup Rapadura or Sucanant(whole cane sugar)

Place the above ingredients into a pot and melt together on medium heat until it starts to boil. Boil for 5 minutes while stirring and then take off burner.


5 Tbls. of whipping cream.

Pour this sweet mixture on top of pecan crust and bake again for 20 min.

Third layer:

Right when you take it out of oven, sprinkle with: 1 1/2 cups of good bittersweet chocolate chips.

Let cool and then cut into squares or use a cookie cutter and cut out into circles.

Note: I always encourage everyone to use as much local, grown without chemicals ingredients (organic), and meat, eggs and dairy from animals that were/are free-ranging and were/are raised without hormones and antibiotics. Seafood should be wild from unpolluted waters.
