Oatmeal Raisin cookies~ R/V

If you’re a fan of oats and raw goodness, these are for you! Inspired by Ani’s raw recipe book (as always <3) I adapted these to make them work for me. I always use Australian Sultanas, they're plumper and juicier IMO.

Roll into balls and flatten into cookies, or place in cookie cutters on a sheet of parchment paper to get a full and round cookie (see the picture from the original cookie recipe at the top of this page).

Store in the fridge for a week, or in the freezer for months. If storing in the freezer, thaw for at least 15 minutes before eating.

Crunchy Salad~ V/GF

I love this salad, and am endlessly grateful to my dear Mum for showing me the recipe! I believe she found it in a Woolworths magazine, and proceeded to remove the noodles from it so that it was gluten free and suitable for me! 🙂

It’s totally delicious, simple, fresh and amazing.

CRUNCHY SALAD

In a frying pan, heat some olive oil and add 1/3 cup flaked almonds and 2/3 cup mixed seeds (I use pepitas and sunflower seeds, I also like to add sesame seeds).

Heat through for about four minutes. Transfer the mixture to a bowl to cool.

In a small saucepan, mix 1/4 cup white vinegar, 1/4 cup olive oil and 1/4 cup raw sugar with 1 tbs soy sauce. Stir over medium heat until the sugar is completely dissolved, and set aside to cool.

Finely shred 1/2 cabbage and place into a large bowl. Add the seed and nut mix and toss together with the cooled dressing.

Serve and enjoy ^.^

Keep in the fridge for a few days, no longer than a week.
