Recipe Directions

  • 1. Process almonds and cashews in a food processor until they (almost) resemble flour. Add dates, agave nectar, coconut oil and vanilla. Process until well mixed and doughlike.
  • 2. Add the cocoa powder and sea salt and process again.
  • 3. Form into cookies. You can refrigerate and eat as is, or dehydrate them for a few hours for a warm, gooey fudgy experience!

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

These are the best raw chocolate cookies that I've ever had. It's a bit touch and go whether they even need to be dehydrated at all, since the batter is quite dry and conceivably you can form them into cookies and eat as is or refrigerate so that they firm up even more. But when dehydrated for a few hours they get gooey and warm and they're so good! They will never get crispy though (due to the coconut oil), so if dehydrating don't bother dehydrating for more than a few hours.

This recipe does require a number of ingredients, unlike this simple lemon cookie recipe. But the flavor is worth it, because sometimes you just need that chocolatey fix.

I especially recommend eating these cookies warm. The insides are gooey and fudgey while the outside is kind of crispy. It's a perfect fix if you're missing the comfort and flavour of fresh-baked cookies!

If you're looking to really replicate a delicious, fatty-tasting cookie, make sure to add the coconut oil. It really makes or breaks these raw chocolate fudge cookies.

These are delicious and so easy to prepare! We've been trying to reduce sugars and grains in our diets. These have been a life savor for satisfying cravings for something sweet. Even my (picky) little boys ask for them every night!

I'm so glad you and your boys like this recipe, Moddie.

This exact same recipe also works well as a pie or flan crust (just squish the batter firmly down into a pan instead of shaping into cookies). Another variation to try! Nice with a simple topping of sliced bananas, for example

Brooks Emerson's Review

Best raw chocolate cookies
4
4 out of 5

I made these today, but added stuff because they were too gooey for me to bring to my class this morning. (Probably because I have a Vitamix and no food processor).

I added about ½ cup of coconut flour (to absorb some of the liquid)
added 1 cup chopped walnuts
added ½ cup roughly chopped uncooked oatmeal

That did the trick!

I tried the dough before adding the chocolate and salt and found it amazing. Next time I'll make them without the chocolate.

I posted a link to your original recipe with my picture of the cookies on my Facebook page: Vegan Cooking Club, so I cited my source :) Have a sparkling day. From a chilly, cloudy Istanbul, Turkey winter morning, Brooks.

I was excited to know the recipe prep time was only 10 mins. I was equally excited to know I had all of the ingredients. So, I made them tonight...and they were SO good! I've been experimenting with raw recipes and trying testing them out on my 17 year old son. He gave this recipe two thumbs up!

Two thumbs up from a 17yo boy is a strong recommendation :) :)

Nice job, Regina!
