Today I played around with a new raw sweetener called Yacon. For those looking for vegan sweeteners that are raw, look no further. The Raw Organic Yacon Syrup’s full-bodied flavor will add so much character to your raw dishes, especially the dessert ones. Up until now, there has been a dilemma on this issue: honey, though can be gotten “raw”, is not vegan, and maple syrup, though vegan, is not raw. Everything thing else is not even a viable option due to political objections (e.g. sugar cane) or over-processing. So what do you use in raw, organic, vegan dishes?? The answer is Raw Organic Yacon Syrup, which is warmed up to just 104 degrees Fahrenheit to evaporate the moisture to reduce the syrup, making it certifiably raw.
My dad really enjoyed these. He said they tasted a bit “healthy” but anytime something contains oats, he thinks it’s healthy. They must have been pretty darn good since he took a container of them with him to work on the slope. :) I encourage you to give these Breakfast Nook Cookies a try.
