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.

Hi Laura-Jane- I just have a question about this recipe. When you add the almonds and cashews to the food process to an (almost) flour consistency; It seems every time I soak almonds then put in my processor they always end up rather chunky rather than almost floury. Do you ever experience this? Because what's happened in the past is my cakes etc end up chunky rather than smooth. :(

Could be because of your food processor is dull or not very powerful? In your case, I would give it a try without soaking them.

Also, for the best effect re: making "flour" you should try buying a coffee grinder for your nuts -- to be used only when you want to create "flour" or to grind teeny tiny things, like sunflower lecithin or flax seeds (and never to be used for coffee beans, of course!). Not very expensive and very useful. I have one--$20 or so, buy it locally at your usual big box type store.

Hi there, I've been really enjoying your site and your recipes. I plan to make these and the lemon cookies this week.

I just want to clarify though; coconut oil and butter are actually not the same thing. Here's a good link about coconut butter: http://ohsheglows.com/2010/06/22/homemade-coconut-butter/

So I assume it's coconut oil that you use in this recipe? Or is it the thicker butter made out of coconut meat?

Thanks!

Oh my gosh I didn't realize that they were different. I am really glad that you've mentioned this, Mandi.

I definitely mean coconut oil :)

Just tried the recipe- could eat the cookie-dough right out of the bowl :-)
I dehydrated them in the oven for about 10 hours, so that they are still a little bit soft inside. Do you keep them refrigerated?

To be honest, I don't keep them refrigerated. That being said, I wouldn't keep them longer than a week unrefrigerated.

When in doubt, refrigerate!
