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!)

Just made these, so fast so delicious!! Eating one as we speak with a cup of tea.
Next time i would put less agave in them cause for me they are a tiny bit to sweet.

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.

Thanks for your comment. It's notes like yours that make this place great!

Hi Pay, I haven't added the cacao powder myself, but I think adding 3-4 tablespoons would be good. What do you guys think?

They look really nice! I just have a concern about coconut oil though. I don't think there is enough data to back up the claims of how good this is for us. It is high in saturated fat!

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.

Do you have a reference? Newly introducing raw to my diet, so I'm trying to take in as many health facts along the way as well.

Bruce Fife has written many books on the value of coconut oil. Also go to greenmedinfo.com for information on this and much more.

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 :)
