Nutrient-Rich Strawberry-Coco-Cocoa Cookies

March 9, 2012

Found this recipe over at The Global Vegan and I had to wait until strawberries were starting to taste better before I took the plunge. I try not to buy things out of season but everyone kept on saying how awesome strawberries were right now so I bought some and took them off of the “to do” list.

I wasn’t expecting much from these cookies, since they had a lot of ingredients and were you know, raw. Not saying I haven’t been enjoying the raw stuff I’ve been making, but the dough looked kind of like raw meat, and not in a good way. And there are a lot of ingredients. I’m not going raw, raw items seem to be a lot easier on my stomach lately and I’m having fun with my dehydrator so I decided to suck it up and throw the pinkish chunky dough in the contraption to see what would happen.

Since I didn’t really want to bust out the stevia (it was buried in the back of the cabinet, so lazy) I just used plain sugar. Worked fine, but I guess I could have used agave as well. I added strawberries on top of some of them and they were really fun. I’d do this again as the strawberries got nice and chewy. The cookies ended up a bit crisp on the outside yet chewy in the middle. Not as if I had baked them but they were quite tasty. A fun recipe to have around, and I might make them a bit more pretty the next go around, maybe add  a bit more cocoa too.

      I’ll have some in my CSA today but I got beautiful organic ones at Trader Joes. They were really good, I was surprised, super sweet.

    [...] weird thing about these cookies is that I made them as the same time as the Nutrient-Rich Strawberry-Coco-Cocoa Cookies and assumed they would be the standby in case the others sucked. Turns out, I liked the strawberry [...]
