What does one give a raw vegan for Christmas. How about some delicious raw cookies. These turned out great and are very tasty indeed.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups oats (soaked oat groats overnight)
  • 12 cup almonds or 12 cup hazelnuts
  • 12 cup goji berry
  • 14 cup cacao, nibs
  • 12 cup agave syrup (or other liquid sweetener such as maple syrup or honey)
  • 12 cup cashews (ground to a fine powder)

Directions

  1. Using a food processor, blend the soaked oat groats in a food processor until the batter comes together. Put into a large bowl.
  2. In the food processor pulse the almonds (or hazelnuts) until you have a course chop. Remove and add to the oat groats.
  3. Add the goji berries, cacao nibs and your sweetner. Keep in mind the sweetner will affect the taste, but it probably will be good no matter which one you use.
  4. Also the liquid sweetener will make this very very sticky. If you want to cut back on the sweetener that wouldn't hurt.
  5. Mix all the ingredients in the bowl well.
  6. Grind the cashews to a fine powder. Be careful not to let them grind too long, you don't want cashew butter.
  7. Put the cashews in a flat bowl and spread it out evenly on the bottom.
  8. Using a tablespoon measure scoop out some of the oat mixture and put it in the cashew powder and roll to coat.
  9. When done all the little balls, put them into the dehydrator to dry. Use the plastic mesh sheets for these, not the slippery teflex ones.
  10. Drying can take up to 12 hours at 110'F, depending on how thick your cookies are.
  11. Pat each ball down to the desired thickness. Also how dry it is in your house can affect the drying time, so check them now and again during the first 6 hours.
  12. At about 6 hours flip the cookies and dry another 6 hrs if necessary.
  13. These look so pretty with the bright goji berries and the dark cacao nibs. Its very festive! You could also add some dried cranberries/blueberries or whatever you have in the pantry.
  14. Bon Appetit!

These are good. I added 1/2 c each chopped cashews and almonds and skipped the rolling step in the cashew powder to save time.
