The FREE 12-Days of Christmas Cookie mini-course continues with another raw christmas cookie recipe. Today’s treat, raw truffle cookies. I must say, getting a Christmas themed recipe in my inbox every day has really put me in the Christmas spirit. In fact, I’m having my first Christmas dinner this evening with a friend. We’re going out for dinner, to a Japanese restaurant so there’s decidedly nothing Christmasy about our meal, but Christmas is the excuse to get together. And I have just enough time to whip him up a batch of raw Christmas cookies.
2 cups nuts [if you use walnuts, pecans, pistachio; no need to soak!]
1 cup pitted dates
1 cup frozen blueberries [or you can use strawberries, peaches, pears, mango, banana]
1/4 cup raw carob
Blend the nuts, dates, raw carob and blueberries. in a food processor until the mixture is smooth. Shape the mixture into small balls and roll them in crushed walnut or pistachio or shredded coconut to use as a Truffle or; flatten the ball with a fork to make the cookie. The truffle [ball] or the cookie keeps very well in the fridge; however, if stacking for storage use some parchment paper to prevent sticking.
