Angelic Monkey's ThoughtsBy Angelic Monkey
These raw cookie balls (or donut holes) are so quick and easy.
Arrange on a platter with fruit for parties and other gatherings. Even raw skeptics will love this simple dessert.
Using freshly ground cardamom really does make a big difference! If you don't have a spice grinder, you can do it the ol' fashioned way with a mortar and pestle.
I rolled some balls in coconut for a variety of flavors. It looks pretty too!
I hope you enjoy this recipe.
