The raw food diet is a craze right now. A raw food diet based on unprocessed and uncooked plant foods, such as fresh fruit and vegetables, sprouts, seeds, grains, beans, nuts and dried fruit.
It is asserted that heating food above 110 degrees F is believed to destroy enzymes in food that can assist in the digestion and absorption of food. Cooking is also thought to diminish the nutritional value and "life force" of food.
My little sister, Jill who goes by Kin's, shared this recipe with me a while back and I made it yesterday and just pulled it out of the dehydrator this morning. These cookies were amazing and really good for you. I made a few tweaks to it but, I think it made them better. ;)
2 cups Raw Cashews
1 cup Raw Almonds
1 cup Raw Walnuts
1 1/2 cups Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
a pinch of salt
1/8 cup Fructevia, Steviva Blend or a dash to taste of Steviva Brands Pure Stevia Powder
Quantities can be fudged, this is a very forgiving recipe.
Make sure to buy 'raw' nuts and not roasted. If it doesn't say 'raw', it is roasted.
Soak nuts overnight by simply putting nuts in glass jars and fill to the top with water. Soaking releases enzymes.
Drain nuts and put them in a food processor. Blend thoroughly until it is smooth but not too smooth.
Put the nuts and the remaining ingredient in a bowl and mix thoroughly.
Form balls and shape into cookies.
Dehydrate at 105ish degrees (to maintain raw enzymes) for probably 24 hours or desired consistency. If you don't have a dehydrator no worries. Simple set your oven to warm with the door cracked.
