Raw Fudge Brownies with frosting

The fudge brownies are delicious! The frosting on top really added to how yummy they were. It gave the brownies 2 different textures, awesome! I love how amazing raw desserts can be. Make a batch of these and keep them in the fridge. All you need is little slices, just a taste is enough. These will stay great for over a week.

Raw Sweet Summer Creamed Corn

Summer Corn is Back!! Yeah!! I love Corn Chowder but I decided to make creamed corn tonight! YUM!!! It was really good, although I think I overdid it a little on the cayenne, so that is why I am recommending a pinch not a few shakes like I did. You could also make this creamier by adding soaked cashews into the base before blending. This could also be made sweeter by blending in some dates as well, depending on how you like it. Enjoy!

Cranberry, Cabbage & Almond Chopped Salad

Tomorrow we are starting the Juice Cleanse portion of the July Cleanse, so this was the perfect last meal before a week of Super Cleansing!!

One of my pet peeves is when a salad is full of huge pieces of lettuce that make it difficult and sloppy to eat. Here is one of my versions of the chopped salad. Super easy, tasty, nutritious, colorful and you will even look pretty eating it. 😉 Perfection!

Cranberry, Cabbage & Almond Chopped Salad

1/4 of a green cabbage, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1 large carrot, chopped
1/4 cup almonds
1/3 cup dried cranberries
Juice of 1 lime
2 Tablespoons flax oil
2 Tablespoons agave nectar
1/3 cup red onion, minced
1 large avocado, chopped

Place all ingredients into a large food processor and pulse-chop until chopped. ENJOY!!

Buckwheat Apple Cinnamon Cookies

More Apple Cookies 🙂 I am on a kick here. These were great! They had a bunch of ingredients and made a little more than I wanted, but since when do I complain about too much of a good thing?!?! It was a little hard to work with all these ingredients in the food processor. I would suggest processing all the dry ingredients and then pouring that mixture into a large bowl. Then adding the wet ingredients to the processor and then combining dy and wet together…that would simplify matters. But either way I am sure you would be happy with the results. These are good!

Buckwheat Apple Cinnamon Cookies
Recipe from The Sunny Raw Kitchen
makes a big batch of cookies

1 1/2 cups soaked almonds
1 1 /2 cups soaked buckwheat
2 cups apples, peeled and roughly chopped
1 cup dates, soaked
3/4 cup dried coconut
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup agave nectar (or to taste)
1/4 cup liquid vanilla
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup ground oats
1/4 cup ground flax
1 tbs cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup oat flakes

Mix all ingredients except oat flakes in a food processor until well incorporated. (You may need to do this in more than one batch!)

Transfer batter to a large bowl and mix in the oat flakes by hand.

Drop by the spoonful directly onto a dehydrator mesh and flatten with a spatula or a glass. (Mine were about 1/3″ thick.)

Dehydrate overnight at 110.

Halva Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies

Halva Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies
These were thankfully inspired by Ani Phyo’s Halva Chia Thumbprint Cookies

Raspberry Sauce:
1/2 cup fresh or frozen raspberries
1/3 cup pitted semi-soft Medjool dates
1/8 cup agave syrup
1/4 cup water

Combine well in blender. Chill till ready for use.

Cookies:
3/4 cup flax seed powder
1/2 cup tahini
3/4 cup almond meal
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup pitted semi-soft Medjool dates
Recipe for Raspberry Sauce

Combine dry ingredients with tahini in a food processor and mix well. Add in dates and mix till combined. Roll dough into 10-15 balls. Place on sheet preferably lined with parchment paper. Use your thumb to make an indentation into the center of each cookie. Fill each with generous amount of sauce. Chill in the refrigerator for 20 min. or more to firm up. Will keep for several days or many weeks stored separately from jam if you can keep them that long haha 🙂 Enjoy!!!

Raw Spicy Corn Chips

These were really great with my Cheddar Cheeze Dip. They are also yummy with salsa or just by themselves. They really have a kick, so they make for a great snack! These make a lot of chips, so if you want fewer, just halve the recipe.
