RAW VEGAN GINGER COOKIES

Ginger- a must have for every woman’s arsenal. Especially if said woman has a minor obsession with raw kale and bean cookies.

Used so widely in Ayurveda, ginger is referred to as the “universal medicine” and, believe me, this name is well deserved. Ginger has a vast array of healing properties and uses. Some of its most popular being:

An aphrodisiac (rawrrrr)

Digestive aid

Helper of congestion and respiration

Booster of circulation

Eliminator of joint pain

Curer of nausea, cramps, and even…. GAS!

If only I had known this when I was on my turbo bean kick. Please be advised; the ginger to chickpeas ratio is obviously not enough to assist in the adverse effects of last week’s Chickpea Ginger Cookies. But fear not, I am 10 cookies deep on these and I feel AWESOME. So, for medicinal purposes I would definitely suggest packing these cookies around for holiday emergencies!

RAW VEGAN GINGER COOKIES

YEILD: 24-30 small cookies

2 1/2 Cup Almond Meal/Flour

1 1/3 Cup Buckwheat Flour (Buckwheat groats ground to flour)

1/3 Cup Agave or Maple Syrup

1 T Vanilla

3 T Coconut Sugar

1/2 t Salt

4t Cinnamon

1/2 t Ground Cloves

1/2 t Powdered Ginger OR 1/2 -1 T Fresh Grated Ginger ( to taste)

Additional Coconut sugar to sprinkle on individual cookies once they have dehydrated for 1 hour

DIRECTIONS:

In food processor or dry container of a high-speed blender process enough almonds to equal 2 1/2 cups of flour or use purchased almond meal

In food processor or dry container of a high-speed blender process enough oat groats to equal 1 1/3 cup of flour

Add all ingredients to a bowl and stir well

Scoop dough by the Tablespoon (15ml scoop) to ensure each cookie is the same size

Place on a non-stick teflex sheet and flatten each cookie with a fork or a flat object (your finger could even work)

Dehydrate 1-2 hours at 115 degrees

Flip cookies onto mesh sheet and sprinkle each individual cookie with coconut sugar

Dehydrate 10-12 additional hours at 105 degrees to desired texture.

I dehydrated my cookies for a total of 12 hours and they were chewy, which is how I prefer them, as they are similar to a regular cookie.

Eat these fresh out of the dehydrator with a glass of fresh Raw Vegan Egg Nog. YUM

Healthiest Holiday Cookie Gluten-Free Vegan Chickpea Ginger Cookie

And so begins my holiday freezer stocking. What was supposed to be an effort to stock my freezer with cookies for guests, has quickly turned to stocking my freezer for late night binges. I am piling through cookies… baked and raw with little to no effort. My lack of guests, I think, is actually to blame.  Boredom= eating cookies for the friends I apparently do not have.  Oh geez!

These are a new creation. Similar to the other chickpea cookies I have made, I label these as guiltless holiday indulgences. These are full of fiber  gluten-free, wheat free, and tasty! Eat too many of these and you may actually lose weight- a happy colon and a happy Christmas!!

Yum Yum Yum.

Raw Vegan Chocolate Milkshake

Raw Chocolate Mylkshake

 

Chocolate milkshakes were not something that happened a lot in my childhood. Not for lack of whining and begging, I can assure you. My mother was a stickler when it came to eating what we thought to be a healthy diet (read no milkshakes, unless mom is out-of-town). However, if given the choice I would certainly have a milkshake in place of any meal. With what I am now recognizing as a distinguished palate (ha), I completely understand why I love the holidays. Chocolate and cookies are not only available for meals, but also acceptable. “It’s the holidays….”

Though my diet has changed considerably since childhood, old habits die-hard. Luckily this has a much healthier twist, and a far better taste. Spoil yourself, spoil your kids, and spoil your lovers, because this shake is delicious, no matter what meal you have it for.

RAW CHOCOLATE MYLKSHAKE

Servings: 1 1/2 Cups

1 Cup Water

1/4 Cup Cashews (If you don’t have cashews omit them and use Almond milk instead of water)

3T Cacao

1 Frozen Banana

1 Avocado

5 Ice Cubes

2-3 Dates

Dash Sea Salt

Dash of Cinnamon

Garnish with Cacao Nibs

Instructions:

Blend water and cashews until smooth.

Add Remaining ingredients except cacao nibs and blend.

Top with cacao nibs and a shot of Kahlua…. here’s to the holidays!
