This recipe was inspired by a friend of ours who was still “sketchy” about the whole “raw food thing.” I asked him one day what his favorite cookie was and he said peanut butter. I told him that I would make him a raw peanut butter cookie, so off I went to face the challenge.
After spending the afternoon in the kitchen, creating this recipe… I could hardly wait to present this raw cookie to Jason. I had a sneaking suspicion that he was going to really like it, well that was my hope.
All the guys came in for dinner and I have to admit that I rushed dinner along just so we could get to dessert… the cookies. hehe
Once the dinner dishes were cleared, I scuttled off to the kitchen to grab the cookies. I made him close his eyes, promising me that he wouldn’t peek. I then laid the plate in front of him and told him he could look. He was so excited and dug right into them. They were a hit.
As I was doing dishes with my back to the boys at the table, I heard comments such as, “I wouldn’t have never known it was raw if she hadn’t told me.” “I normally don’t even care for peanut better cookies but this is amazing!”…”We need to sell these in the cafe!”…”OMG, these are amazing!” Now mind you, these comments are coming from 3 men who are not raw food eaters, I take that back, they eat lettuce on their burgers. I can’t believe it was so successful on my first try. It just tickles me to feed good food, healthy food to loved ones.
**To melt you coconut oil** – the best way to melt you coconut oil is to boil some water in your tea kettle. Set your coconut oil jar in a large bowl and pour the hot water over it. It will take less than 5 minutes to get some of it melted. If you use the microwave you risk over heating the oil.
