Twas the nights before any holiday, when your kitchen elf self rocked it,
Making Raw Superfood Cookies, covered in chocolate.
Happy Holidays (already!) to all, and to all a healthy Santa Claus cookie! Your Thanksgiving guests and St. Nick will really be flying’ after they take a few bites out of these easy-to-make Superfoodized low-glycemic raw chocolate-striped cookies.
Blend in a food processor until sticky and mealy but not liquid buttery:
2 cups Organic Brazil nuts – but seriously, this recipe works with any oily nut you desire (walnuts, cashews, macadamia, pecans, hazel nuts, almonds, pili, pistachio) – soaking, rinsing and dehydrating your nuts is ideal
1/2 cup fine cut Organic coconut shreds
3 tablespoons hazel nut butter or almond butter
3 tablespoons wholesome sweetener of choice (birch xylitol, Organic Erythritol, raw honey, non-GMO glycerin, raw sun-dried cane crystals (if you’re going to do sugar, do this one), etc.)
1 tablespoon raw organic cacao butter
1 tablespoon Longevity Power Maca Bliss
1 1/2 teaspoons goji berries or Longevity Power Goji Joy
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla bean powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1-3 pinches stevia extract powder, to taste
1-3 pinches freshly grated organic nutmeg (grate using a fine micro-plane)
1 pinch organic cinnamon powder (True Ceylon cinnamon is best)
1 pinch grated fresh ginger
2 teaspoons Longevity Power LEVITY for a stress-eliminating light butterscotch flavor
1 -2 teaspoons Longevity Power He Shou Wu for a bliss-inducing dark nutty flavor
Hand mold into lightly pressed cookie shapes – don’t over compress as we want our cookies not too dense, with a pleasurable chewy mouth feel.
You can start eating them warm at this point, but to make the chocolate stripes, first place the cookies on a plate in the refrigerator until cool. Then drizzle stripes of melted chocolate over the cookies using your favorite raw chocolate recipe. Or decorate with Edible Goddess Chocolate Gold (the herbalized and superfoodized raw chocolate sauce that can act as a chocolate frosting in this recipe!)
Serve yourself and serve everyone this holiday season!
Just don’t let the dog or cat serve themselves. 😉
Cheers to you thriving through the New Year!
