Giant Raw Cookie

This giant raw cookie was adapted from the Teddy Bear Cookie recipe by Sarah Nolan the Raw Food Mum, this version is very different and I won’t waste time explaining why.


6 – Plums
1tbsp – Honey
1 cup – cashew nuts
1 cup – desiccated coconut
Cacao nibs to decorate


It is easier to purchase desiccated coconut from the shop, however if you have the equipment and time to do so, you can make it for half the cost at home; not to mention that you can use the coconut milk that you get from making desiccated coconut using a slow masticating juicer, which you can then make awesome smoothies plus the left over desiccated coconut can go in other desserts and or cereals. Either way mix the cashew nuts and coconut in a high speed blender till fine then add the plums and honey; continue to blend till well mixed and then spread onto a dehydrator sheet. At this point you can get as creative as you like, I went for making a giant shaped heart and topped it with cacao nibs. Place the mixture in the dehydrator and dehydrate for at least 3 hours at 42 degrees or until it gets to a desired texture for you (you can always use a low setting on the oven). If it takes to long to get to the desired texture turn up the temperature, there’s no real rules here also remember the thicker you make the cookie/s the longer the time they will need in the dehydrator, but I assure you it’s worth the wait. Note also I chose to use plums as they are in season at the moment, but you can use any fruit you want. Enjoy.

To you all in great health
