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!)

Hi Kari, Thanks for your honest feedback. They are pretty greasy, you could probably cut back on the coconut oil somewhat and still get a similar texture.

Rhinda Hale's Review

Raw vanilla drop cookies

5 out of 5

OMG!!!!! Delicious!!!! Best raw cookie I ever made!!!!

I'm always scrounging in my kitchen trying to come up with something to eat that's different or just someone sweet that won't make me feel guilty. :)

I chose this recipe and had to modify it because I didn't have tahini butter and was out of vanilla (of all things). I used almond butter and lemon juice for the vanilla. Oh.....I also put in some raw sesame seeds. SOooooooo yummy........I couldn't keep my hands out of the container!! I've been out of them a few days now, and am about to make more. hee hee

I made these, half with the addition of raw cacao. My love and I preferred the chocolate ones more yet do agree the plain ones were peanut buttery/vanilla flavored. It comes down to preference. I used maple syrup as sweetener, and I might use the processor next time for a (hopefully) fluffier smoother coconut pieces so they would be less "haystack" like.

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.

Totally Jen, lol. It's so true. I always like to keep some kind of goodie in the freezer for when that feeling kicks in. Glad your children enjoyed too. But really, what's not to love with this one?? Now, green smoothies and nut pates are a different story lol

Hi Joanne, yes, you can try other nut butters, like cashew butter or almond butter. The flavor will change somewhat, but it will work well.

I do prefer tahini though, as it gives it kind of a peanut buttery flavor that I like :)

Mena Bekir's Review

Raw vanilla drop cookies

5 out of 5

Just made these little beauties. They are extremely good. My family think they taste like a white chocolate confection we have in Australia by Ferrero Rocher. Very yummy. The next batch I am thinking of pressing down into patty papers and topping with slices of mango and bannana for a real tropical flavour.

It was probably the easiest recipe I've ever tried. I was a bit skeptical about mixing tahini and coconut oil together - little did I know how heavenly the combination would turn out to be, my daughter and I are raving! You have two new fans :)

Hi Regina, OMG tahini + sweetener = heaven! Especially with a little pinch of salt and maybe a splash of vanilla. I could eat with a tiny spoon and be in heaven too. Glad to welcome you to the fold!
