Oh my! What flavor these Raw Vegan Salted Peanut Butter Cookies deliver. Party in my mouth! My favorite raw vegan food has to be desserts. There is just something about fresh unprocessed, non sugar saturated desserts. And if you eat this way long enough, your palate will change and your tastes buds will know the difference and appreciate the difference. If you haven't tried a raw dessert before, take that step and make something simple. You will be pleasantly surprised at how easy it is and how delicious these desserts are. :)
These cookies are so delicious - I will definitely be making these over and over again. Enjoy!
RAW VEGAN SALTED PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES
1 cup of raw almonds (or you can use raw almond meal)
1/2 cup of peanut butter
1-1/4 cup pitted medjool dates
1 1/4 teaspoons of vanilla extract
Your favorite sea salt to sprinkle to taste
Optional: 1/2 to 1 teaspoon maple syrup - use this to moisten your cookie batter if you think it is too dry.
Combine all the ingredients together in your food processor. Process well. If you feel that the cookie batter is a bit dry add a smidge of maple syrup - 1/2 to 1 teaspoon and process again.
Roll the batter into 1" balls and then press them down with a fork to create the quintessential peanut butter cookie without the added guilt.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
