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
