Raw Easter Cookies


Splurging can be guilt-free. Raw cookies have minimal ingredients and they're very easy to make. You can use a dehydrator or bake them in an oven at the lowest temperature setting. All of the flavors are fresh and fun: Strawberry Mint, Berry Vanilla and Pseudo-Carrot Cake Cookies. These recipes also work if you want to make Lara Bar-like snack bars, for on the go!


Raw Easter Cookies

Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 10 hours
Total time: 10 hours 10 mins
Serves: 30

Colorful and healthy Easter treats, these cookies have flavors like Strawberry Mint, Berry Vanilla and Carrot Cake!

Ingredients

Strawberry Mint Cookies
  • 1 C. Raw Almonds, Soaked for 1 Hour
  • 2/3 C. Strawberries, Stem Trimmed Off
  • 1/2 C. Dates, Pitted
  • 2 tsp. Fresh Mint Leaves
  • Pinch of Sea Salt

Berry Vanilla Cookies
  • 1 C. Raw Almonds, Soaked for 1 Hour
  • 1/3 C. Blueberries
  • 1/3 C. Blackberries
  • 1/2 C. Dates, Pitted
  • 1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • Pinch of Sea Salt

Carrot Cake Cookies
  • 1 C. Raw Almonds, Soaked for 1 Hour
  • 1/4 C. Dates, Pitted
  • 1/4 C. Raisins
  • 2 Tbsp. Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
  • 2/3 C. Carrots, Grated
  • 1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • Pinch of Salt

Instructions
  1. Each recipe has the same directions, lucky you! Per recipe there are 10 servings/cookies.
  2. Whichever recipe you are working on, place all of those ingredients into a food processor with an s-blade.
  3. Pulse or run it until the ingredients start clumping together and creating a dough. You may need to scrape down the sides a couple of times to get an even texture.
  4. You do not want this to be a smooth paste.
  5. Next, take roughly 2 large tablespoons worth of the “dough” and shape them into eggs that are 3/8" thick. Do this onto parchment paper or paraflexx sheets for your dehydrator.
  6. Once all of the dough is used, place the cookies in the dehydrator and set the temperature to 115F. Dehydrate for 5 hours, then carefully peel them off of their sheet and turn them over onto the mesh tray.
  7. Dehydrate for another 5 hours, or until the cookie is to your desired consistency. I like my raw cookies pretty dry, so I dehydrated them for around 12 hours, total.
  8. Then serve!

Notes
If your dates are dried out and firm, soak them for 20 minutes before making the recipe.
