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 just recently went raw and was craving something cake batter like, these hit the spot! So yummy! I added pecans to the top of mine, and now I can't stop eating them :D

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 :)

Brownies are the classic go-to recipe, it seems! Thanks for sharing, Kari!

Hi Sarah, I have never used coconut nectar myself, but if it sweetens like the other sweeteners then go for it!

Hi There,

Do you use hulled or unhulled tahini? :-)

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)

Yes there is raw tahini but a little harder to find. I've used the roasted tahini & tastes great!

Is Tahini raw? All the tahini I've seen has roasted sesame seeds. Is there tahini with unroasted sesame seed? Thank you

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
