Curious as I am about raw foods, I decided to give this recipe a shot. I didn't really know where to start and you know what, that's a great start in itself. I rounded up some staple ingredients of raw cuisine and set to it. And to my surprise and culinary delight, it all turned out quite delicious.

Raw Spiced Orange Thumbprint Cookies [Vegan]

Serves

12 cookies

Ingredients

For the cookies

  • 3/4 cup raw almonds
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 3/4 cup chopped dates
  • 10 tsp water, depending on consistency
  • 2 tsp mixed spices (ground cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp stevia (optional; you can also use agave if you prefer)

For the cream filling

  • 1/2 cup l freshly squeezed orange
  • juice zest of one orange
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked for ten minutes
  • 1 tbsp agave syrup

Preparation

  1. In a food processor, start pulsing the almonds to a fine powder. Then add the almond butter, chopped dates, spices, stevia and a tiny bit of water and keep processing until it begins to resemble dough. You may not need to use up all the water depending on how good your blender/food processor is.
  2. Roll the dough into 12 golf-sized balls.
  3. With your thumb make a print in the centre, a little well if you will.
  4. Place all the cookies on a cookie sheet and set aside.
  5. Next, prepare the filling: Blend together the orange juice, zest, cashews and agave until smooth.
  6. Spoon a little filling in every cookie. You will have plenty of cream filling left, so you can save some to drizzle over ice cream or pudding.
  7. Refrigerate the cookies for at least 30 minutes, preferably a couple of hours, before you serve.

AUTHOR & RECIPE DETAILS

After turning vegan, I discovered a particular talent for baking delicious cruelty-free cakes and cookies. It was then that my friends named me ‘The Vegan Cookie Fairy’ and my blog was born. I find happiness in preparing and eating food that is good for my body and soul — but cats and yoga help, too.
