Ever eaten raw cookie dough? These raw cookie bites are kinda like eating raw cookie dough. Brings back memories. When Spiderman and I were in college we used to buy a tube of Pillsbury Slice and Bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and spread it on French bread and eat it. Ah, those care free college days. It is a wonder we aren’t dead from all the crap we used to eat. This recipe comes from Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 People by Jennifer Cornbleet.
Raw Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup raw almonds
½ cup raw walnuts
Large pinch sea salt--smoked if you can get it
1 cup medjool dates (again, like the raw fudge dung balls it needs to be these large, super sticky dates to make this work)
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/3 cup vegan chocolate chips
Pulse the almonds, walnuts and salt in your food processor until coarsely chopped. Add the dates and the vanilla and process until the mixture sticks together. If it seems dry add a tsp of water then pulse again. Then add your chocolate chips and pulse briefly to distribute.
Turn off the machine and remove the blade and roll into balls and then flatten slightly to make a cookie shape. Store in the fridge. If they last that long.
