No Bake Chocolate Peanut Cookies! GF/V

Super, ridiculously easy to make, awesomely delicious and totally flour free… FAVORITED!

Note: Make this for your your non vegan friends with milk choc chips! My dad took some non vegan ones to work and I hear they went down a treat!

NO BAKE CHOCOLATE PEANUT COOKIES

In a food processor, mix together 1/4 cup natural peanut butter, 2 tbsp peanuts (unsalted), 1/3 cup raisins, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract and 1 tbsp cocoa powder. The amount of chic chips you use is up to you, I used about 1/2 cup for this batch.

You may want to drizzle some agave nectar through the mix if you find that it’s a little dry. Some peanut butters are drier than others, so keep this in mind! You can add more chocolate if you wish, just keep an eye on your mixture’s moistness. If it’s too try, it won’t form well.

Once the mixture is ready, roll into balls and flatten between your hands.

Raw/V/GF “Donut Holes”

Another of Ani’s amazing raw desserts, made in memory of those little baked donut holes of goodness! She was inspired to make these from a friend of hers, another RAW food chef.
She suggests doubling or tripling the recipe because these really are delicious, and you can’t eat just one.
I, for one, am thoroughly relieved that there is a raw recipe that tastes this good. Totally delicious!

DONUT HOLES

Place 1 3/4 cups almonds and seeds from 1 vanilla bean in a food processor.

These beauties will keep for over a week in the fridge.
The pineapple gives them a very sweet, unique taste.
Delicious!
