Raw Orange Cookies

Did someone say cookies?! Yep, I did!! These RAW Orange Cookies are just the perfect snack. I’m trying to eat as much raw food as possible at the moment to nourish my body with as many vitamins and minerals as I can. I created these cookies as everyone loves cookies, right? I also LOVE the flavour of orange so I combined the two to make these yummy treats! These cookies are also completely healthy, refined sugar free and vegan!

Here’s what you will need (yield 10-15)

50g dried figs
150g pitted deglet nour dates (medjool will work)
100g pecans
2tbsp desiccated coconut (plus some to decorate)
1 tbsp peanut butter
1.5tbsp pure maple syrup
1 tsp maca powder
1 tsp coconut oil
1 tsp cinnamon
Zest of one whole orange, plus the juice of 1/2 the orange


Combine all ingredients in a food processor until well mixed.

Form into small balls then place on a greaseproof paper lined baking tin. Press the balls down to form cookie shapes. Sprinkle with shredded coconut.

Set in the fridge for a few hours until firm. Enjoy!20140625-135157-49917612.jpg
