Hello cookie lovers! Last time I shared a recipe and some tips for making a simple...and simply delicious raw Almond Cookie. I hope you’ve had a chance to try the recipe and are enjoying the results.
In this post, I want to show you how to vary that raw food cookie dough and, with a few simple swaps, create a collection of raw food cookies that are good enough to be the star of their own party.
For a lot of people, cookies aren’t cookies without a chocolate component. My raw Chocolate Chip Cookies fill the bill.
Instead of adding raisins, mix in some chocolate chips. You can also add 1 teaspoon orange zest, for citrusy-chocolate goodness.
Another variation is my raw food Schoolboy Cookie recipe. Instead of adding raisins in this version, press a small square of dark chocolate onto the top of each cookie. While, like the Chocolate Chip cookies, these are not technically ‘raw’ because of the chocolate, they are still a much healthier option than traditional white flour/sugar/butter-laden cookies.
For non-chocolate lovers, my raw Almond Cookie recipe produces raw Lemon Cookies with one simple switcheroo. Simply replace the almond extract with lemon extract and add 1 teaspoon lemon zest. Yummy! Click on the Almond Cookie recipe here and look at the bottom of the recipe for all three variations--chocolate chip, schoolboy, and lemon cookies.
Raw Food Cookie Swap Party
If you don’t want to do all the ‘cooking’ for your party, consider throwing a Raw Food Cookie Swap Party. Ask each of your friends to make a variation of the basic Almond Cookie recipe.
You can share the work...and then share the sweet results.
Party on, cookie lovers! I’ll see you next time.
