This recipe is not "raw", because the recipe calls for Maple Syrup. Maple syrup is not a "raw" food!

Here is why...

For a food to be considered "raw", some experts state it can not be heated up past 104°F - 120°F. Maple Syrup is boiled at around 219°F when it is being processed!

💥 Maple Facts and Fictions

PLUS...This recipe can only be considered raw, if cold pressed Virgin Coconut Oil is used!

💥 Note: Virgin Coconut Oil: Whether it is raw or not depends on the production methods, if virgin coconut oil produced by expeller pressing, centrifuged or made from coconut milk by fermentation at high temperatures it cannot be regarded as raw and not suitable for raw diets. Only cold pressed (under 40⁰C / 104⁰F) virgin coconut oil can be classified as raw.
