Recipe Directions

Grind the cashews in a food processor until a powdery meal forms. Add the rest of the ingredients and continue processing on low until the dough forms a large ball. Measure out 1 1/2 tbls size cookies out and roll and flatten into cookies shapes. These can be as thick as you want, 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Place in a plastic bag in the freezer. These will keep for up to 3 months.

And...I just made the cookies using the date syrup and I replaced Lucuma for Vanilla powder (I'd never heard of it until now) and these cookies barely made it to the "icebox" at all. LOL

I actually made this syrup last night, after some research regarding agave & bats, and it is AWESOME! I will use this more in the future and get off of agave altogether. ***In reference to Turil's post on making a sweetener syrup from dates & water. I got the recipe from this website (Gone Raw)***

While dates are a delicious substitution, agave nectar cannot possibly turn into tequila unless there is yeast in it. (Take it from me, I make my own booze). I'm apt to believe agave nectar labeled as "raw" is in fact raw. The same goes for maple syrup; there has to be yeast in order for fermentation resulting in alcohol production to be possible.

Delicious! As a sweetener, i used dates soaked in hot water, then blended in food processor. They're in the freezer right now. Really yummy when unfrozen, can't wait to try frozen!

Holy Delicious!

I just made these minus the salt and used honey instead of agave, but they are way delicious. I juiced a lemon and a lime as well. I bet they'd taste great with ginger. Can't wait til they freeze! Thanks for the recipe.

Yes, honey or agave would work for these cookies. Happy un-cooking!

@ MaeBeigh these cookies can be eaten straight from the freezer for a chewy consistancey. Or can be eaten defrosted but will be much softer. I prefer them frozen, even during winter!

Neither agave nor maple syrup are raw. (Even if the agave says "raw" it can't possibly be, because it would turn into Tequila if not heated to boiling point.)

Instead you can use nice healthy raw dates, blended with a little water to make a syrup. Yay for dates!

First, admittedly, I am a relatively new raw foodist. Are these cookies eaten fresh from the freezer--sort of like popsicles--or are they served thawed, to room temperature? ~Mae

Most Organic Agave does't contain anything except pure agave nectar from the cacti plant. I wouldn't worry to much about fructose being in the agave unless you buy in bulk from a non-organic company!

These look GOOOOOOOOD

ooo tho... heard agave is high in fructose due to the manufacturers methods. So i would use Maple Syrup or something... Or, if there's truly raw pure real agave. dunno!

I made these as soon as I saw the recipe. I used almond meal instead of cashews and they are deliicious. Love anything with lemon in it.
