That’s Right. > Raw. Oreos!
The Essence of G kitchen has been blitzing up a storm for you all these last few days, and on the list was a new dessert idea!
So why not put a raw twist on the beloved cookie itself?
Only this recipe is completely refined sugar free, vegan friendly and super yummy, I may even go as far to say you may not even miss the original after trying these little raw gems?
But I’ll let you be the judge on that one.
Once again another quick and simple recipe to whip up and chow down on within the hour!
What You Need
1 cup Cacao Powder
1 cup Almond Meal
1/2 cup Cocoa Powder
1/2 cup Pitted Dates
1/4 Warm Water
2 tsp Vanilla
1/2 cup Cashews
3/4 cup Coconut Butter
1/2 cup desiccated Coconut
1/4 cup Vanilla Protein Powder
2 tsp Vanilla Essence
What You Do.
Place in all base ingredients into a food processor and blend on high
Blend until mixture becomes thick and easy to mould
If you are finding the base to be too soft, add in any additional almond meal or cacao, but be sure to do so according to taste!
Scoop out your mixture, place into a container and pop into the freezer to chill for roughly 30 minutes.
Give your food processor a quick rinse!
Place in all of the ‘filling’ ingredients into your food processor and blend on high until smooth and creamy
Check to taste,
-some people will prefer something a little more sweet for their filling, so feel free to add in any additional vanilla here
Blend again if need be and pop into the fridge to allow the mixture to firm before spreading
Once your cookie base is chilled and firm, place onto a large sheet of baking paper
Pop another sheet on the top of your cookie base and begin to roll out until your desired thickness is achieved.
You can go for super thick or super thin bases!
Grab your cookie cutter (jar lids, or egg holders do the trick) and start to cut out your cookie pieces
Once complete, you can begin to assemble,
– or place the bases and tops back into the freezer to chill and firm up again for another 10 minutes
The only thing left to do is grab yourself a hot cup of tea, or indulge in my “Cup o Cacao” drink, with one or two of these yummy raw treats, and simply enjoy!
