Default Pics of the RAW recipes I made **NEW** pic added!!!! (pg 3) You have to see it!

In order of deliciousness, with the best one last:

"sour cream 'n onion" flax seed crackers:


chocolate oatmeal raisin cookies:


and the absolute BEST thing I have ever tasted in my LIFE...
coconut-rolled brownie balls





ETA: recipes!!!!
I suppose I could post the recipes. I got them online, I really can't remember where, and then I tweaked them, so they aren't the originals anymore. Here ya go;;;

Flax crackers:
a bunch of flax seeds, however many you want or have on hand (um, how about 1 cup?) add equal parts water, let soak 5 hours or overnight. add sundried tomatoes, or onions and whatever spices you want. spread very thinly on cookie sheet (or dehydrator sheet) and dehydrate until crispy. If using oven, set it on lowest setting and leave the oven door ajar. some suggested flavors are: dehydrated or fresh onion, basil and italian spices, a dash of lemon juice (lime is actually better) for "sour cream & onion", sundried tomatoes and chili spices (chili flavored crackers) or sundried tomatoes and pizza spices (pizza crackers), or sundried tomatoes and other minced veggies (garden veggie flavor) and whatever else you want. Add a squirt of Braggs aminos too, that gives a little more flavor. Be creative, cater to your own personal tastes. Oh, I also added a handful of sesame seeds becasue I had them right there.

chocolate oatmeal peanut butter raisin cookies (the equivalent of raw no-bakes):
2 cups oats
1 cup raisins
1 cup peanut butter (I used cashew butter & they were fine)
1 cup maple syrup (I used honey and it was fine) mixed with 1/2 cup cocoa or carob powder
dash of vanilla if desired (I omitted this)
Mix all ingredients, shape into cookies and enjoy!


coconut-rolled brownie balls:
put a bunch of dates in the food processor until they turn to paste. measure how much paste you have and add the same amounts of nut butter (any kind) and cocoa or carob powder, add a Tbsp of honey (more if you want it sweeter) mix throroughly. I had to do it by hand because my food processor started smoking. Roll into balls. roll in coconut or chopped nuts if desired. Add a walnut, pecan or almond for garnish if desired. Refrigerate them, if they make it that far without being eaten.

Oh my, I just bought dates yesterday and was looking for something to make with them. You think I could use a different sweetner than honey? I'm out. Maybe maple syrup?


I will be busy today!

Maple syrup would IMO most definitely work. Dates are already sweet, the recipe just needs that little extra boost to make it perfect. I swear, it's like eating raw brownie dough or something. SOOOO delicious! And the coconut makes it extra yummy. When I made them, I asn't feeling well, so i didn't eat any. Then when DH got home he asked how they tasted and I said I didn't know, so I ate one. Man...it's a good thing I hadn't eaten one earlier in the day or they'd ALL have been gone. I had to pack some up to send to a friend so I wouldn't eat them all! (I still ended up eating too many for a midnight snack... )

I really want to try out those flax crackers but I don't have sundried tomatoes.

I just made the date cookie things. Yummy! Very rich though - I could only eat one. DH liked them too, but he said they looked like cat poo. (They weren't as round and pretty as your pic - and I rolled them in ground flax cuz I didn't have coconut)


I have flax seeds soaking right now- about how long will it take in the oven?

well, if you aren't bothered by them not being really "raw' you can close the oven door or turn the heat up a *little* and just keep an eye on them. You could probably make them dry in like, 45 minuted then.

You don't HAVE to use sundried tomatoes. I hate tomatoes and never use them .

Well I have the oven door closed and it's going on 3 hours right now. But I think I made them a little thick - I used my biggest pan and filled it. A cup is a lot!

I'll let you know when they're done.
