Eating “raw coookie dough” totally takes me back to being a kid again. And this recipe is so much better for you than that refined junk we ate as kids!
This rawking recipe is egg free, gluten/grain free, and refined sugar free! It is also nut free! Oh, and super easy to make!
I got the basis for this simple & satisfying recipe from Good Girl Gone Green! I suggest checking out her blog & recipes, as I have even told her before, we have very similar sweet tooth’s, or should I say sweet teeth?!
Raw Vegan Cookie Dough Recipe:
- 1/2 cup raw coconut butter
- 1/2 cup dried unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1 cup medjool dates, pitted
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- pinch sea salt
- 3 Tablespoons raw cacao nibs (you can also sub in raisins in you are on SCD)
Blend coconut butter with dried coconut, sea salt & vanilla in a food processor until well blended. Add in dates, blend until well combined, will likely take at least 60 seconds. Drop in cacao nibs, pulse until well integrated. Roll into cookie dough balls with your hands.
Will make 9 truffle sized cookie dough balls, or you can make lots of mini cookie dough balls to add to a cup of vanilla chia pudding or vegan coconut ice cream! See below for ice cream & chia pudding recipes.
Vegan Coconut Ice Cream:
- 2 cans coconut milk, full fat
- 2/3 cup maple syrup
- Pinch sea salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Blend ice cream ingredients together in a blender. Pour into ice cream maker. When ice cream is starting to thicken up, stir in little balls of cookie dough. Once ice cream is ready, serve or put in the freezer for another hour or 2 to firm up even more.
Vanilla Chia Pudding Recipe:
- 1 cup homemade almond or hazelnut milk
- 1/2 to 1 Tablespoon coconut nectar, maple syrup, or honey
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
Blend almond milk, sweetener & vanilla together. Pour into a bowl, add in 1/4 cup chia seeds. STIR well. Let sit about 15 minutes, stirring on occasion. (If pudding doesn’t feel quite firm enough after 15 minutes, just add in another spoonful of chia seeds). Plop in a few raw cookie dough balls. Enjoy.
