Raw Chocolate Chip Cookies

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on May 3, 2009

Oh yes.


I simply could not wait to post about my most recent creation in the kitchen.

I could probably live off of raw cookie dough if I had to. It is one of my most guilty pleasures. The only problem as we all know is that it is far from healthy.

Could I really create raw chocolate chip cookies that were delicious yet healthy too? I sought to find out!

Of course I researched a few raw chocolate chip cookie recipes online, and then I went to experiment!

Raw Chocolate Chip Cookies



Cookie dough:

  • 1 3/4 cups ground raw cashews
  • 3/4 cup ground raw oats
  • 1/4 cup Agave Nectar
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil

Raw chocolate chips:

  • 2 Tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup carob powder
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 4 T agave nectar (or maple syrup probably works)
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla


Dough: Grind up raw cashews and raw oats in a food processor or blender. Place all cookie dough ingredients into a large bowl and mix by hand or with a spoon. OR simply place all ingredients in the processor and blend (why didn’t I do this!? lol). Mix until a dough forms and you can make a large ball. Refrigerate dough while you make the chocolate chips.

Chips: Mix all chocolate chip ingredients together in a medium sized bowl. Roll the dough out onto parchment paper and place in the freezer for about 30 minutes. Optional: Half way through at 15 mins., flip the chocolate sheet over for even freezing.

When chocolate is frozen, cut into chips. This is the fun part! I used a pastry slicer and it was SO fun making the chips.

Mix chips into dough and have fun!

Place in fridge (if you have any left that is) to harden for about 30 mins. They get real hard! Make sure to refrigerate them on parchment paper or they will stick to the plate.

Notes: If you don’t have carob powder you can substitute it for cocoa powder just as easily. Alternatively, you may be able to sub the agave nectar for maple syrup or honey. If you try this and it turns out let me know!

Also note, I cut the recipe in half to make a smaller batch. Don’t be too worried about getting exact measurements here. They will still turn out, promise.

The best part is the total prep time (not including freezing and refrigerating) was 10 minutes! So quick and easy. These would be amazing to whip up before guests come over or for a quick birthday gift.

I adapted this recipe found here. I used much less coconut oil in both mixtures, substituted raw oats for groats, and I added vanilla and agave in the chocolate chips.

Flipping it after 15 mins of freezing:


WAY TOO MUCH FUN. Seriously. I can’t handle it.


Dare I say these were the best chocolate chips I have ever had?!?! I do, dare!!


I am feeling the love, are you?


Pure, sweet, rolled up bliss:



1) Roll out dough mixture and use cookie cutters.

2) Roll dough mixture into balls and then roll in coconut.

3) Add other mix-ins instead of chocolate chips, like raisins or chopped up dates.

The taste?

These raw chocolate chip cookies BLEW MY MIND! Seriously I was NOT expecting this. I could not stop eating this stuff. It was pure heavenly bliss with some great health benefits to boot! :)

Oh wow, these sound so amazing!!! I’m going to have to try this out soon.


Deloris January 8, 2010 at 7:46 pm

OMG! They were sooooooooooooooooo good! Thank you, I was searching for a raw choc cookie recipe to make with my daughter who has been on me for days for cookies and I did not want to make egg and sugar junk! (She gets enough of that from her father!) LOVE them! You rock sistah! This instructions, pictures all of it, amazing! Thank you x much!


Lynn November 6, 2013 at 2:12 pm

Just made your raw chocolate chips cookies and they are delicious. Yes, I loved making my own chocolate chips!!! All things homemade, rock!!!!!


Christine August 9, 2010 at 9:33 am

Hi Angela,
We’re launching a new recipe edition on our website, and would love to feature this recipe. I’ve sent you an email about this, but haven’t heard back yet, so if you could email me at your convenience, that would be great!



Stephanie May 3, 2009 at 10:35 pm



*Andrea* May 3, 2009 at 10:37 pm

oh my lord those look fabulous!!!! i wish i liked to bake/cook because those would be on the top of my list.. unfortunately i hate it and i suck at it haha. but i admire your creativity in the kitchen. you are very skilled! i would totally buy these if they were sold in boston :)


TorontoGirloutWest May 3, 2009 at 10:42 pm

LOL You beat me to the punch! I read Jenna’s entry and thought I would try to make a batch too. Thanks for doing the leg-work for me! :)


Hangry Pants May 3, 2009 at 10:44 pm

I am floored! Like you, I am a cookie dough MANIAC! I love the whole concept and I promise to try to make these very soon!!!!


Crunchy Granola Girl May 3, 2009 at 11:22 pm

Those look amazing Angela! I usually make oatmeal chocolte chip cookies using the recipe on the quaker oats box and end up eating at least a cookie-worth of dough…

And on another note- I ran my first half-marathon today! When I finished my friends said “Wow, you’re glowing!” and I immediately thought of you! Thanks for the inspiration each and every day! And in regards to your previous post, you most definitely are a runner (and so much more)!


Ellen May 4, 2009 at 12:08 am

i definitely ran to the kitchen after seeing this! i mixed coconut oil, cocoa powder, vanilla stevia and peanut butter and then dipped dates into it. it was amazing! thanks for posting this :)


Priyanka May 4, 2009 at 12:11 am

Seriously Angela, that sounded so amazing that I ran to the kitchen to try it!As I am typing this comment the babies are happily sleeping in the fridge. Mine aren’t definitely as pretty as yours, but they sure taste fantastic!

Thanks for sharing!


Angela (Oh She Glows) May 4, 2009 at 12:17 am

So glad you liked them girls!!! Weeeeee. I can’t get over how awesome these are!


emily May 4, 2009 at 12:34 am

those look amazing, you are so creative!


Christina May 4, 2009 at 1:44 am

Better than cookie dough? No way! I just need to get some coconut oil but I’m definitely trying these


Sarah (lovINmytummy) May 4, 2009 at 1:45 am

I will make these. How I will talk Chris into going to the store for coconut oil and raw cashews is a whole ‘nother story.


Julie May 4, 2009 at 4:18 am

I love that you discovered raw food :-) Raw dessert and treats are just amazing!

I actually have two questions for you (time for a new FAQ ;-) ):
Now that you focus on not eating artificial sweetners and other crap foods, as well as buying organic, how come you still use makeup, shampoo, moisturizer etc. with all kinds of chemicals in them? I’ve had great experiences with using no-crap cosmetics, shampoo and so on.

Have you been doing any thoughts into simple living? Seems as if you’re on your way with having a job that you really enjoy, spending time in nature and all kinds of other things.

Finally I would like to hear if anyone is up for a challenge this week? Here in Denmark it is now monday morning and a perfect time for starting a week-challenge. Don’t buy anything except food, medicine and cannot-wait-birhtday-presents this week! I’m doing it anyways, but it would be fun to see if people were up for the challenge. It is a way to become more aware of the power money holds over us, and how we sometimes spend money mindlessly without actually needing the things we buy.



li August 6, 2012 at 2:00 am

hi julie,
your idea of living simple is very interesting!
My first thought is that’s how I live my life most of the time anyways.
I guess it’s more directed at people who has extra money to spend on other things.


k May 4, 2009 at 7:30 am

Those cookies are so cute…i think i need to get a heart cookie cutter.


Leah @ Simply Fabulous Now May 4, 2009 at 8:00 am

They look amazing!!! So good! I can’t wait until I have some time to spend in the kitchen. I have a few things to try out!


Brittany May 4, 2009 at 8:50 am

You are an inspiration to me. I am 18 years old and leave in Orlando FL. I came across your blog while reading a diet blog (which i don’t anymore!) and you have truly inspired me to get healthy by working out and making smart food choices!! Your relationship with your husband has inspired me to try including my boyfriend more in my workouts and I also want to try cooking more healthy meals like you make that both you and your husband will eat! (boys are so picky about health food..) I am so glad that you post all throughout the day it’s like you think everyone is your best friend on here and you make yourself so relatable! I just want to let you know you have a fan all the way down here in hot hot florida!


sunny September 21, 2013 at 1:31 pm

Hi Brittany,
We are from Central FL too. There are great meet-up groups in Central FL and over 1,000 registered raw foodists.
Chef Olive has a great group in your area and in Mt. Dora there is a great live organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, restaurant where we meet every Thursday at 5:45. There is a free talk with price of an entree, from 6pm -7 or 7:30pm on how to make live food your lifestyle with recipes and fun facts. You can find the info on meetup.com/Lake-County-Raw-Food-Allies/ for other areas just put in meetup.com and your city or county and see what comes up for your area.
These are fantastic cookies though we used raw cacao nibs instead of the chips and we don’t eat oils so we just left it out and subbed with a little flax and 1/4 cup purified water it turned out just fine. Many times we sub oils according to the recipe and flavors with avocado, flax seeds, chia seeds, cacao or coconut butter, etc. Just be sure to keep the volume of liquid the same or add a little bit at a time to see how it sticks together.
This is a great recipe and we are so excited to get it. What substitution suggestions do you have for those who don’t choose to eat oats? Buckwheat. other nuts or seeds?
Thanks for all you do.

Jenna May 4, 2009 at 8:52 am

YOU ARE BRILLANT!!!!!! REALLY YOU ARE!! I can’t wait to make these! :) thank you so much!


Shelby May 4, 2009 at 9:19 am

Oh. My. Gosh.

Those are the best raw cookies I have ever seen!!!


brandi May 4, 2009 at 9:22 am

those cookies look amazing! great idea :)


weight and meditate May 4, 2009 at 9:41 am

Those do look fabulous, but I can’t promise I’ll make them since I have only one of the ingredients I’d need on hand! Someday thouugh.


Leila May 4, 2009 at 10:13 am

These look simply amazing. Thank you for sharing the recipe. Can’t wait to try it out myself!


AlliJag May 4, 2009 at 11:01 am

Awesome idea! I think I need to stop at the grocery store on the way home now and get all the ingredients! You are so darn creative!


amy (veganissexy) May 4, 2009 at 11:49 am

NAUGHTY. NAUGHTY. NAUGHTY. I’m just pretending I didn’t read how to make those….pretending I didn’t see those delicous looking pictures….pretending I didn’t copy and print the recipe….and pretending I’m not going to try and make those in a weak moment this week. Phew….glad I’ve got such good restraint :)


Katrina (gluten free gidget) May 4, 2009 at 11:59 am

Do you think these could be made using something other than cashews? I’m allergic. (which really stinks since they are used in so many vegan recipes!)


kellie February 22, 2010 at 2:39 am

I always substatue Almonds when I do not have any raw cashews in the house and the results are almost the same.


Jenn (eating bender) May 4, 2009 at 1:06 pm

WOW! These look amazing, Angela! I am all for eating a cookie that tastes more like (or better than) cookie dough :) You are such a genius in the kitchen. I like yo style!


Elisabeth May 4, 2009 at 8:16 pm

Oooh, I can’t wait to make these! Thanks!!


Katharina May 4, 2009 at 10:34 pm

Those seem delicious! I love having healthy food that reminds me of something similar (but not as many nutrients). That’s why I love oatmeal because it’s so versatile.

I wonder if you can make a raw version of gingersnaps.


Briana May 8, 2009 at 10:04 pm

OH MY GOSH these are amazing! Who would think you could make something this healthy and still dessert like. I used raw almonds but they still turned out great.


mi May 10, 2009 at 6:23 pm

true to my word, i made these today, and all i can say is WOW. you are inhumanly talented at this!! these were AMAZING!! thank you!


katie May 29, 2009 at 11:39 am

i made these last night, but “cheated” and used pre-made chocolate chips – my first raw food baking experience, and they were delicious, especially the “dough” :)


Jaimejoy May 31, 2009 at 12:38 am

ummmm……..yeah. freakin amazing. i didn’t have raw cashews, so i substituted raw almonds instead, that was the only change i made. this recipie is just genius. pat yourself on the back, Angela. thank you for sharing this!


N.D. June 10, 2009 at 10:08 pm

I made these and were delcious! One thing I had to do was use smart oil (canola/soy/something else) instead of coconut which I couldn’t find at my normal grocery store. What are the benefits of coconut oil ? the cookies were “oily” and a little crumbly so I bet the coconut oil would do the trick. Either way , they were fantastic!


Tammy June 11, 2009 at 11:09 pm

Thank you for posting this!! i have always been a cookie lover, then i went raw!~ I had all the ingredients on hand so it was easy to begin and so worth the efforts!!!
Youve got me dreaming of raw cookie possibilities with this recipe!

These taste so good and making the chocolate chips is so fantastic!
Thank you! Thank you ! I cant believe how rich, sweet and simply tasty the chocolate chips are… i love the texture of the dough too~~ *~ yum~


Lizzy June 28, 2009 at 10:24 am

just made these…and they are DELISH. i may do a little less agave nectar next time, as they were very sweet, but i have already eaten 3 of them!! haha


elizabeth July 6, 2009 at 7:10 pm

Just wondering if you have a recipe for milk chocolate chips? My hubby doesnt like the “dark” taste.


bwal July 30, 2009 at 6:54 am

I made this with a few adjustments. I used honey instead of the Agave Nectar. I also used crushed pecans instead of cashews. Also couldn’t find carob powder, so I just used a full cup of cocoa powder. The end result couldn’t keep shape (my dog bones I cut out fell apart as I tried to pull them up). However, my husband had the idea that it would be a great ice cream topper and he was so right! I also love just grabbing a spoonful whenever I feel the urge. Very simple to make and my first venture into raw food. Thanks for the great recipe!


Stephanie August 3, 2009 at 12:36 am

I just made these and had to say thank you! I love the chocolate chips especially!


Lizzie August 12, 2009 at 10:23 pm

I saw this and knew I had to make them. I finally got the chance/excuse yesterday and made a half batch. I used maple syrup instead of agave and “cheated” with some great chocolate chips we had. Like bwal, mine were not rock solid after being in the fridge but they did keep their shape and are tasty tasty tasty. Thank you!


Alison August 17, 2009 at 11:12 pm

Oh my god! These are amazing. By “these” I guess I mean the dough cuz I’m just eating the mix straight from a bowl as I type.

I used maple syrup instead of agave and it worked great. I also added a pinch of Sea Salt for that sweet and salty balance.

Thank you for the post! I will make these over and over and over…

Aly (alwaysalreadybeautiful.blogspot.com)


Jess of Veg Out! October 7, 2009 at 9:21 pm

These are simply marvelous! I used my own chocolate chips & added a tiny pinch of sea salt, and they tasted so delicious! Thanks for sharing. :)


h booooogie October 16, 2009 at 12:23 am

yeah these looooooked dank so I just hooked some up…I switched the cashews with almonds and oats with sunflower seeds..added a bannana and some mushrooms…your right the chocolate issssss pppppphhhhhhuuuunnnnnnnnn….


Lindsey Graham December 11, 2009 at 9:40 am

I made these last night for my Christmas party but with maple syrup and carob chips. Juts out of the fridge they stay really sold but melt a bit at room temp but overall they are fantastic!!!


Jimmi December 11, 2009 at 6:52 pm

I am so looking forward to making these cookies this sunday at the christmas party at my sister’s, they look sooo good. I recently found out how many delicious recipies for raw food there are, I am trying a new one every day. So, if anyone of you have any recipe for raw food you feel I should try, cookie or normal food recipe, I would be very happy ;)


Melissa February 1, 2010 at 11:35 pm

Thank you! My picky 3 yr old loves them! I used agave in the choc chips but used honey in the dough. I also left the oats a little chunky for texture. So great! So Delicious! My new fav!


Lucas February 8, 2010 at 2:45 pm

I absolutely love the work that you are doing. Keep it up!!!



Diana February 9, 2010 at 10:44 pm

do you soak the raw oats and cashews?


kellie February 22, 2010 at 1:42 am

I am making these cookies as we speak. I am actually waiting for the “Chocolate chips” to freeze. I made a slight variation by using home made date paste in the chocolate chip mixture. I am so excited about how they are going to turn out. I was so excited when I found this recipe that even at 1:41 in the morning I had to make them at once because I knew I had all the ingrediants. I do not have any cookie cutters and I love raw coconut so I plan to take you idea and roll them in to balls covered in coconut.


kellie February 22, 2010 at 2:35 am

I wanted to update you. These cookies were the BEST raw chocolate chip cookies I have ever had! I ate 2 before they even made it into the fridge to set. I did have with coconut and half without. And you are right, these taste just like REAL chocolate chip cookies….in fact, Even better! I am going to make double batch next time. Yummy, yummy, yummy!

Thanks again!


AZGreenMomma March 2, 2010 at 5:41 pm

Ok, I’m trying to make these cookies, but how do I stop eating the chocolate chips long enough to do the rest? :)


FromAFan March 5, 2010 at 6:39 pm

THESE COOKIES ARE THE BEST!!! I’ve already made them FOUR TIMES(not all at once) before hauling myself over to the computer to comment! Thank you so much!


sarah March 22, 2010 at 8:13 pm

I have been looking for a one lucky duck chocolate chip cookie copycat recipe… this one looks perfect! I might try dehydrating them a little too! Thanks!


Kenzie (Healthy Purpose) March 30, 2010 at 3:32 pm

I ended up using store bought vegan carob chips instead of your recipe, which I think was a big mistake. Especially since I have all the ingredients for the raw chips–i just hadn’t realized. I don’t like the chips I bought at all–taste too processed.

The dough was really good though! maybe i tad too much vanilla. I used 1/2 agave 1/2 maple and it was still yummy. Thanks for sharing the recipe!


Kim April 14, 2010 at 11:49 pm

I have a question about agave nectar use: I have recently read that agave nectar is not something found readily in nature, that it in fact has to go through serious processing much like HFCS and the resultant syrup is not much different from HFCS. What are your thoughts?


Fae April 16, 2010 at 4:19 pm

WOWOWOWOW!!! Totally amazing. I made these the day after I made “regular” chocolate chip cookies, and discovered that I like these even better!!! I used ground sprouted buckwheat instead of oats. Thank you SO much for all of the pictures and the recipe. Wow. <3


Momo April 17, 2010 at 2:39 pm

Wowwoo! These look awesome! Going now to get the ingredients at Vitamin Cottage! Thanks, Fae, for showing me this site!


One Jaguar April 17, 2010 at 9:38 pm

I can’t possibly describe how delicious these are. I have made them twice. The last time I made them, I ate the entire bag within a week–and I was proud of myself for showing such restraint…truly I could have eaten them all within a day! I leave out the grouts and use all cashews. TRY THESE. They are U-N-B-E-L-I-E-V-A-B-L-E.


Chelsea May 31, 2010 at 7:53 pm

i didn’t have cashews so i used 1 1/4 cup of almonds, 1/4 cup of pecans, and 1/4 cup of pumpkin seeds and they turned out amazingggg :)


Liz Wicks June 1, 2010 at 9:58 am

I made these on the weekend and added some unsweetened coconut flakes and milled flax to the mix. YUM!!!

Seriously. Delicious.


Lindsey June 21, 2010 at 6:03 pm

I can’t wait to try this! I’m going to give it a whirl tonight. I might try adding ground salba to the dough….

Oh, and do you melt the coconut oil first? I have a jar in my pantry but I’m not sure what to do with it exactly, haha. Thanks for the recipe!


aubrey July 1, 2010 at 8:25 pm

these are amazing! my boyfriend is a raw vegan, and i’m trying to get there, but i’ve been dying without chocolate. these are the perfect fix. i substituted honey for the agave (cause i’ve heard some awful stuff about the way agave is processed) and they were delicious. thanks for sharing! totally love the heart shape, too :)


Jennifer Stallings July 7, 2010 at 9:54 am

I life in Boston and it was SWELTERING last night! The temperature reached 100 degrees F. I decided to make a treat without the oven and made these! They are DELICIOUS! I didn’t have any measuring cups and used a shot class and drinking glass but they came out great! I rolled them in unsweetened flaked coconut and they were delicious! I haven’t made anything resembling a dessert in a long time but I’m so excited to try more recipes. Thank you so much Angela! You are a beautiful person, I can feel myself glowing too!



Sarah L. July 27, 2010 at 8:32 am

These sound delicious! I am just curious, because I didn’t think cocoa powder was raw, can you use cacao powder instead?


Alex July 27, 2010 at 8:44 am

These remind me of Fudge Babies!! (but not quite :))
Is there anything that can be a substitute for coconut oil?
Love your blog SO MUCH!!!


Gillian July 28, 2010 at 12:10 am

I wonder, could you substitute some of the oat flour with coconut flour and add more coconut oil or water? I have a lot of coconut flour and I am not sure how to use it. Any helpful suggestions? :)


Connie August 1, 2010 at 4:30 pm

I made your cookies today. I really like them & they were so easy to make. I just have one question? is the dough supposed to be so crumbly? Both doughs were really crumbly, did I do something wrong? Taste is great however!!!
Thank you for the recipe & any comments you might have for me.


AngelaOSG August 1, 2010 at 5:35 pm

Hi there! Nope the dough isn’t supposed to be crumbly. I would try adding more sweetener (agave or maple syrup). Hope this helps!


heidi @adventuresofaglutenfreemom.com August 10, 2010 at 11:39 am

HOW DID I MISS THIS POST????? I will be making these soon and sharing away, thanks Maggie girl!



heidi @adventuresofaglutenfreemom.com August 10, 2010 at 11:44 am

Oops, sorry Angela! I didn’t realize I had left “She Let Them Eat Cake,” where I saw the link to this post, too early in the morning! *embarrassing* :-D


Sabina August 11, 2010 at 8:55 am

I didn’t make the cookies, but I did make the chocolate. OMG! It’s so AWESOME! I love the dark chocolate taste and that a little bit keeps me satisfied and not wanting more. I’m blown away at how easy it is to make such a delicious recipe.

I substituted peppermint extract for vanilla with excellent, minty results.

Thanks, Angela! :-)


Danielle Joy :D September 1, 2010 at 2:52 pm

What would be good in these cookies too would be raisins (like you mentioned already, haha), or chocolate covered raisins. Another good add in would be coconut, like you said. These cookies are sooo good! It’s too bad mine are finished already :P. I had tried to melt the chocolate chips from this recipe in the microwave, so I could use it for the Chocolate Banana Coconut Bliss. Unfortunately, that didn’t work… Instead I got burnt chocolate. Angela, do you perhaps have a recipe for chocolate chips that will melt? If you could make it raw that would be great!


Erin September 15, 2010 at 11:26 pm

I’ve been looking high and low for a raw chocolate cookie recipe! Thank you, and love the photos that go along with your experience. I’m off to the kitchen…


Jennifer and Jaclyn @ Sketch-Free Vegan September 25, 2010 at 7:06 pm

This recipe is literally no-fail. We made chocolate covered “bites” out of the dough. Check out the pics!



Christina Noordberger September 30, 2010 at 6:44 am

Pure delight, I am gonna try this REAL soon.
Thanks for posting!
Love from The Netherlands!


Jen April 13, 2012 at 2:58 pm

These are AMAZING! I’ve shared them with my kids, and co-workers who don’t usually eat healthy food, and they’ve been loved by all! Thanks for sharing!


Richard May 29, 2012 at 10:25 am

Just made two batches of these for a Raw Potluck in Seattle, WA and had nothing but rave reviews for these cookies. When tasted them prior to bringing them, just for scientific purposes, they were soo delicious. Almost kept them all for myself.

Altered the recipe a little bit and used raw honey along with a little mesquite pod meal in there as ran short on carob powder. Used about 2/3 of the chocolate chips for each batch of dough

Made them into cookie balls, brought them to the picnic/potluck and life was amazing. THANKS!


Sarah Reyes June 3, 2012 at 9:20 am

Excellent Recipe! I made 1/2 batch knowing that I have no self restraint. I had to add an extra 1/2 T of coconut oil to the chocolate (so 1/1/2T) in order to incorporate the dry to wet. I used maple syrup because I am a lucky girl who has a dad that makes it, therefore always have it in supply! These came out more tasty than most things I’ve eaten; raw or not! Next time, I’m going to try sprouted oat berries for the cookies and adding spirulina to the chocolate for more nutritional merit. Kudos! Loved them!


Abbie July 22, 2012 at 3:09 pm

Thanks for this recipe! I didn’t have raw oats so I made flour with some quinoa – worked great!


Carlie July 22, 2012 at 10:44 pm

I just made these and I could eat the whole thing! I made a couple changes- peanuts and almonds instead of cashews (i hate cashews) and honey because I don’t have agave. They were SO AMAZING! mmm…I think I’ll mix the leftover chocolate into my oatmeal at breakfast time :)


Carlie December 9, 2012 at 3:10 pm

My sister specifically asked for 5 batches of these for Christmas! We LOVE them! Maybe a little too much..once we (mostly me) ate a whole batch in a day…oops.


Stephanie January 29, 2013 at 3:58 pm

Is the agave nectar 4 T stand for tablespoons?


Angela (Oh She Glows) January 30, 2013 at 2:01 pm

Yes it does :)


patty October 10, 2013 at 6:59 pm

i made this recipe,ohhh my, my new favorite!!! i made some changes though.instead of all the nuts..too many calories,i added more oats ,1 cup inexchange for nuts.i also added 2 t. butter extract. i found it to be helpful before thou put the chip batter in the freezer that you score the chips for easier cutting.i used my pizza wheel cutter.worked perfectly!! thanks again for an awesome raw treat!!!


Marie November 12, 2013 at 4:01 pm

I made these but substituted chocolate with dried cranberries as I cold not get hold of carob powder. They still turned out lush, and I even took them into work. All the staff loved them and were shocked when I said that they were vegan and had agave nectar in instead of sugar. They all asked for the recipe and wanted me to make them again! Fab recipe, thank you!


Auden April 2, 2014 at 5:24 pm

I’m allergic to cashews :( what could I substitute for instead?


Jamel April 18, 2014 at 12:01 pm

Thanks for sharing. I made my first batch of cookies Wednesday of this week, before seeing this post. I have not made the chocolate chips yet. I also dehydrated them. The are good and chewy and the measuremnt are about the same too!
ground raw cashews
ground raw oats
Agave Nectar
vanilla extract
coconut oil

Tried these and didn’t taste much of anything, good or bad ..

So I tried to add some flavor with cinnamon, but it just made the dough too grainy.

Maybe half cashews, half pecans next time? Or get lax about the whole vegan thing and use honey, because agave nectar is flavorlessly sweet and weird to me. Except I probably won’t do a next time. Not baking or buying cookies has been working for me so far.
