Raw “cookies” – you won’t ever want a real cookie again!

The following two recipes have been kid tested, mother approved!   The first recipe was a big hit with the kids, even people who had never tasted a raw “cookie” before asked for more.  The second recipe is a bit more of a mature taste, but my toddler ate them up regardless.  They are healthy, gluten free, totally raw and scrumptious!  Plus they are ready to eat in less then 20 minutes.

Raw coconut sesame “cookies”

(makes about 10)

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • dash stevia
  • 1 1/2 cup coconut water
  • 4 tsp toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

In a high speed blender, add the coconut water and the sesame seeds and blend until smooth.  You can use tahini if you don’t have a high speed blender.  You are going to need only about a half cup of coconut water if using tahini.  Mix all the ingredients together to until you have a doughy consistancy.  Roll dough into small balls and then roll in raw coconut flakes (I like  bob’s mill brand).  Place in the freezer 10 minutes and enjoy.
