I have been following Laura-Jane, on Twitter for a long time. I also, obviously follow her on Instagram and pop in on her website www.therawtarian.com weekly to see what’s new and what tickles my tastebuds.
As I have said before, I’m not on any level completely raw, but I find that the “snacks/sweets/desserts” on her site are easy and they taste amazing. It also really helps to rather have two raw cookies than eat two shortbreads, especially if you are trying to keep the kilograms down and are just open to have a healthier lifestyle.
Her recipe for “Best Raw Chocolate Cookies” are RIDCULOUSLY easy! Like sooooooooo easy!!
1 cup of almonds
1 1/2 cups of cashew nuts
1 cup of dates
2 tablespoons of agave nectar (I used rice syrup)
1 TBSP of coconut oil
1 TBSP of vanilla extract (I used 1 teaspoon of vanilla paste)
1/2 cup of cacao powder
1 pinch of sea salt
Process the almonds and cashews in a food processor until they almost resemble flour. Add dates, agave nectar, coconut oil, vanilla and cacao.
Blend until fully incorporated and sticky.
Shape into cookies and keep covered in the fridge for up to 5 days.
