Awesome Cookie Recipe - "Oat-Date Rawies" Kid-friendly, healthy, whole grain raw food snack


from "The Raw Truth" by Jeremy Safron

2 cups sprouted oats (I soak the oats for 8-10 hours in fluoride-free water, drain and soak again for 8-10 hours. I then make the cookies or leave them a few hours to sprout in a large colander covered with a plate to keep them moist, rinsing every couple hours

1 cup seeded, soaked dates, drained (Soak for 1 hour in fluoride-free water right before making cookies)

1 cup soaked raisins, drained (soak for 1 hour in fluoride-free water before making cookies)

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon - Use organic Ceylon cinnamon which is healthier and better tasting than the Cassia cinnamon that you find in most grocery stores.

(Save soak water from dried fruits for drinking or making smoothies, etc.)

Using a homogenizing juicer (or I use a food processor), homogenize the oats and dates until smooth and place in a large bowl. Stir in the raisins and cinnamon. For each rawie, form about 2 tablespoons of the dough into a ball, place on a drying tray and press into a 1/2 inch round. Dehydrate for 18 hours or until desired.
