Easy Raw Food Cookie Recipe with Dates

Here are my raw vegan cookies - fresh out of the dehydrator! Click here for larger image.

Make these easy raw food vegan cookies using just three simple raw ingredients and a dehydrator! Stock up on bananas, dates and coconut and make a double batch of these raw cookies. You absolutely won't believe how yummy these raw food cookies are. You'll just have to try them out and see for yourself.

Ingredients:

  • 8 dates
  • water
  • 1 very ripe banana
  • approx 1 cup raw flaked coconut

Preparation:

You can shop for raw coconut flakes at larger well-stocked health or natural foods stores. Or, open up a coconut and grate it yourself!

Cover the dates in water and allow them to sit for at least 25 minutes in order to soften up. Then, remove the pits.

Combine the dates (not the water), banana and coconut in a blender or food processor and process until smooth and creamy.

Dehydrate at about 110 degrees for around 6-8 hours, or until done. These raw cookies should still be soft and chewy for the maximum yumminess, so don't over dehydrate them!
