Raw gingerbread cookies

Helloooo!

Today is the last day of September and I can’t believe how quickly time has gone by. And, as Christmas is less than three months away, I have anticipated in making the most amazing raw gingerbread cookies for the season! And I do believe that yesterday I got there. 🙂

Ingredients (for the amount on the photo below – about 30 small cookies):

400 g dates
200 g dried organic mulberries
100-150 g organic raisins

1.5 tbsp ground ginger
2 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 cup ground almonds/2 tbsp raw buckwheat flour

The process itself is supereasy! It’s unbelievable! 🙂

Soak most of the dates in hot water for about 10-15 minutes or leave in cold water for a few hours. Put all the ingredients – except a wee bit of all the spices (ground ones; can also use similar spice mixtures I’ve seen very often) and the almonds/buckwheat – in a food processor. Add water only if after processing it for about 2-3 minutes (scraping from the sides every so often it doesn’t go round anymore) so it would become like a dough. If it is too wet, add some more dry dates or mulberries to it. If you want a really thick dough, that’s what you ought to do, it should start forming a ball while processing it. And that’s most of it done! 🙂

Now because it’s quite sticky, I like to have a wee bowl with water in it so I could keep my hands more or less clean and wet throughout the process of forming the balls without having loads of it stuck onto my hands.

For the coating powder mix a wee bit of all the spices with almond meal or buckwheat flour if you want a nut free option. I really like that because as soon as you have one, the spices already burst in your mouth and give you the warming sensation of Christmas, if you like it. I just like the spices!

So what’s left to do is make your hands wet, take a bit of the dough, form a wee patty and coat it in the spiced ground almond mixture! Afterwards leave it in the fridge for an hour or so if you have time, if not, they’re brilliant just like that as well!

I hope you enjoy them as much as I and allllllll the people I’ve shared them with have! Also, HAVE FUN! 🙂

Raw brownie cookies

Brownie cookies 

 

2 cups almondmeal
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup walnuts
2 tbsp cocoa powder
sweetener
pinch of salt
water
cinnamon

 

Mix all dry ingredients, add enough sweetener (amount varies depending on what you’re using, ~1/2 cup agave syrup/2-3 tbsp stevia + 2-3 tbsp agave/1/4 cup yacón) and water to make it thick dough. Scoop the dough with a teaspoon and put straight on to a dehydrator’s tray. Dehydrate on 104F/40C for 5 hours or more if you want them crispier. 🙂 Irresistable!
