Raw Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies – Thank You Toni!

raw-chocolate-chip-cookie

Ingredients

3 cups of almond pulp
6 pitted dates (soaked)
1 cup coconut flakes
1 cup flax meal
1 cup cocoa nibs
1 TBS coconut oil
1 cup coconut milk
pinch of sea salt

Directions

Blend all the ingredients except nibs and coconut flakes.

When the mixture is dough like, stir in the cacao nibs and coconut flakes.

Roll into the mixture into balls and put it in the dehydrator – flatten balls with a fork (or the palm of your hand).

I do mine in the sun dryer and turn them after 4 hours for a total baking time of 8 hours.

In a dehydrator less time would be needed. Be careful not to over dehydrate – they will get too hard.

Inspired by Toni Allen

I would add some stevia or agave syrup for my taste, I prefer my cookies a bit sweeter

Enjoy!

    I am not familiar with raw foods so, when you explain a recipe and mentioned “dehydrate” what do you mean?
    or how do you achieve “dehydrate”?
    Thank you

      Hi lupe!
      To dehydrate means taking the moisture out of something. It’s the “raw ” way of cooking or baking if you prefer. The benefits of this over cooking is that it’s low temperature therefore you don’t lose 1/2 of the nutrients, like normal cooking does. To dehydrate, it’s quite simple, you put your food in a dehydrator (it’s a kind of big box with a hair-dryer inside). If you don’t have a dehydrator, you can also put in your oven at low temperature (not above 46deg C/ 115 deg F).

    How do I make almond pulp? Tnanks

    • Audrey

      You need to put almonds in a blender with water and then put the mixture through a sieve! xx

    This is a good recipe to use left-over pulp after making Almond Milk. Just use what is left in the nut milk bag after squeezing.
