Kandace's Thoughts

By kandace

Tart, chewy lemon macaroons.

I’d recommend at least doubling this recipe, as the cookies are addictive and go quite fast!

I recently ordered a dehydrator and this is the first thing I plan to make. It sounds delicious. Thanks for sharing Kandace :>

M@tt, pineapple has a protein enzyme (bromelain). I have a feeling pineapple won't mix well with the protein - germinated nuts/seeds. But, do let me know if it does work! I'd actually be surprised if it did.

What happened to my comment? Anyway, these were so good. Thank you kandace for putting this recipe up. Has anyone ever tried sun-drying things like these? I don't have a dehydrator (yet) and drying them in the oven wasn't too efficient either. I live in Florida so I would think they'd dry pretty quickly in the sun if it isn't too humid.

Wow! I love the batter - I can't wait for the cookies to be done (should be midnight or so, and I'll be getting home from a dance, yummy! I had a little batter left, so I put it with fruit and posted the recipe - "Rich & Creamy Fruit Salad-Dessert" Yum!

I am going to try them with macadamia butter (ground up macadamias) since I don't have any of the really raw cashews now - I'll let you know how they turn out :)

wowweee.... these are amazing... my husband (SAD) LUV'S them... and my son who has been the hardest to feed (also DOUBLE SAD) absolutely RAVED ABOUT THEM!... i will be making this recipe to take to parties and use to introduce people to RAW... it's like a life saver having a few good recipes that make you feel like you are in the best place NOT MISSING OUT ON ANY THING!!!!

Can i ask a question if anyone can answer me or you Kandace... i made Banana Leather once and it came out tasting like Braggs.. at the same time i had some stuffed mushrooms (which had the Braggs in) dehydrating in there and when i watched an Alissa Cohen DVD she said that you could do several things at the same time... im wondering if there is exceptions to that rule?????

Can anyone Help me??????

These babies are something else. The first batch never made it to the dehydrator. The second batch was stolen off the dehydrator piece by piece every time someone walked by. I need to go buy some more cashews tomorrow so I can attempt a third, crispier batch.

Good point about the nuts being soaked rawclaire! I don't eat any unsoaked nuts either, what a coincidence!! Thanks for the recipe kandace, I just looked at your profile and your recipes are amazing!! You truly are a raw chef, kandace :)

OMG Kandace how on earth did this blow into your mind??!!!!!!! I was at first disappointed when i saw cashews in it because usually when cashews are in a cookie recipe they are not soaked... and I can't eat unsoaked nuts. But then I just filled up with delight when I saw the soaked for 4 hours part!!! I thought oh wow this is something I can actually eat. They look like lemon meringue cookies!!! I will soak my cashews tomorrow thank you so much for this recipe!!

BLISS. Aside from being a durian lover and chocolate freak I adore tart lemon flavors too. And even though I'm eliminating large amounts of citrus from my diet. This recipe stays. Life is too short not too enjoy this cookie. I bow to you.;o)

These really are fantastic! Wo! So tart and sweet at the same time, and a perfect chewiness. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

These are sooooooooo good. I saw them mentioned on the forum topic about things to make in double batches. The lemon taste is so wonderful it will be ages before I start experimenting with other flavors. I have just recently had a sweet craving and this is just the thing to satisfy it. I think this is probably the best "uncooked" recipe I have tried to date!
