The Rawtarian’s Thoughts

No equipment required! Which means less dishes to clean, which is always a good thing!

Best served cold, straight-out of the freezer because coconut oil will liquify again once warm.

This recipe makes approximately 15 drop cookies. These are super sweet and rich, so just one after dinner does a lot to satisfy that sugar fix!

Please note: the tahini is definitely the secret ingredient in this recipe. So do not try to substitute it with anything. (And do NOT use sesame seeds instead of real oily/liquidy tahini! The texture will be all screwy and not good if you do that. For realz!)

What is a “raw vegan?” A raw vegan is someone who eats only raw fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds–none of which are ever heated above 105F (40.6 Celsius). That’s it. Raw vegan recipes include cookies, brownies, cakes, crackers, macaroni and cheese, cheesecake, and more. All made from fruit, vegetables, seeds, and nuts. No bread products, no dairy products, just raw, natural ingredients! There is a whole movement of “raw vegans” (or “raw fooders”) who invent and share creative raw food recipes. Raw vegans prepare recipes using blenders and food processors instead of ovens and microwaves! ”Like” The Rawtarian on Facebook, and visit her for more great recipe ideas at therawtarian.com
