The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

No equipment required! Which means less dishes to clean, which is always a good thing!

Best served cold, straight-out of the freezer because coconut oil will liquify again once warm.

This recipe makes approximately 15 drop cookies. These are super sweet and rich, so just one after dinner does a lot to satisfy that sugar fix!

Please note: the tahini is definitely the secret ingredient in this recipe. So do not try to substitute it with anything. (And do NOT use sesame seeds instead of real oily/liquidy tahini! The texture will be all screwy and not good if you do that. For realz!)

These are excellent & VERY easy. My husband likes them as we'll. I added a little wheat germ & flax meal to the second batch I made & couldn't tell any difference. Reminds me of a Samoa Girl Scout cookie.

I consider this more of a macaroon than a cookie drop. That said, the flavor is good, but there's too much sugar in this recipe for my liking. My reason for seeking delicious raw vegan desserts is to avoid refined flour and sugar. In my second attempt at this recipe, I substituted one cup of shredded coconut with one cup almond meal, decreased the maple syrup to 1/4 cup and added raw chocolate bits. Your raw vegan brownie recipe is still my favorite :)

Oh my goodness!!!! Tasting the first step (the ingredients without the coconut) was amazing!!! I don't like tahini but mixed with everything else wow! I think I will use that sauce as a butterscotch type sauce on cakes/muffins etc or maybe freeze it as butterscotch lollies. I am new to dehydrating, do you think you could dehydrate the sauce and have as rollups? Wow again! Now I am patiently waiting until they set.

Hi Sherelle,

So glad you enjoyed!

I don't like tahini on its own either, but it's kind of like butter - not something that you just eat alone, but in the right combo it is GOOD haha.

nice ideas re: sauce and candies!

re: dehydrating - if you try it, do it without the coconut oil and do not use honey (since neither of those ingredients dehydrate well)

Good question Merrick. As Rebecca kindly mentioned, it's definitely available if you look.

Also, you can make it yourself by grinding sesame seeds in a clean coffee grinder and then adding water and making it into a paste

My are these divine! Like, really, amazing. The only mistake I made was using whole sesame tahini instead of regular white which I think accounted for some slight bitterness but that isn't really a deterrent. Five ingredients never made something so good! (I left out the salt)

WOW!!! thank you for this easy delicious recipe!!! I know I will be coming back over and over to keep making these!! I have made these and your ranch dressing a few times! And both recipes are the best!!! I tried the dough and it was like butterscotch, maple, vanilla heaven!! All I had was agave and I think i got around 18-19 cookies out of it!!! I really wish I had maple though!! Next time no more agave and maple or honey!! Thank you so so so so much!!! I highly enjoy these!! I also threw in around 1.5 T of raw cacao to half the batch because I am a chocolate lover!! Next time I may add some cacao nibs to the whole recipe.. We'll see!! xoxo

Hi Dionna,

Hmm interesting challenge! In this recipe you could maybe use sesame seeds instead? But that might be a bit too heavy, maybe half sesame seeds and half hempseed hearts instead of the coconut???? not too sure though, it's a bit risky as I haven't done that myself.

(PS: You would still need to use the coconut oil though, that's what makes it harden)

I'm always scrounging in my kitchen trying to come up with something to eat that's different or just someone sweet that won't make me feel guilty. :)

I chose this recipe and had to modify it because I didn't have tahini butter and was out of vanilla (of all things). I used almond butter and lemon juice for the vanilla. Oh.....I also put in some raw sesame seeds. SOooooooo yummy........I couldn't keep my hands out of the container!! I've been out of them a few days now, and am about to make more. hee hee

I made these, half with the addition of raw cacao. My love and I preferred the chocolate ones more yet do agree the plain ones were peanut buttery/vanilla flavored. It comes down to preference. I used maple syrup as sweetener, and I might use the processor next time for a (hopefully) fluffier smoother coconut pieces so they would be less "haystack" like.

Hi Mese, Thanks for your feedback. I find agave to be a bit sweeter than maple syrup, so when subbing one for the other I try to err slightly on the less is more side when using agave.

There have been many studies backing up the claim that coconut oil is one of the most healthiest fats on the planet. The saturated fat is in the form of MCT and is not stored in the body. Besides, you need good saturated fat and they are not all bad.

I would love to believe it is a super food, but I have read such persuasive arguments supporting that is both good and bad, so really unsure what to take as fact! Anyone can say anything and sound convincing! I just don't know. In the meantime, moderation is the key I guess!

I agree!! I use it very rarely and I leaner and feel much better because of it!

Here's one article! http://www.stuff.co.nz/life-style/food-wine/8141451/The-skinny-on-coconut-oil

P.S: I am making these cookies today anyway! I left the coconut oil out of the chocolate mousse I made a few weeks ago (made it 3 times and left it out the third time, and it was still perfect!)

I concur. It's awesome, but also something to use sparingly. Not quite like kale in the superfood category :)
