Also if you could attach some recipies, I am looking for some things to help ease me into raw better, I find sweets to be my one downfall when it comes to going back to SAD.

1 cup dates - blended
1 cup figs - soaked - blended
1 cup raisins - soaked - blended
1 cup almondsflavor
mix everything together, take soakwater as much as you need, if its too wet more "flavour"... roll balls and put them in the fridge for a while. READY.
Eventually you should soak the dates to... depends... and you can use other kings of dried fruits, nuts... Even me as "trying to keep it hardcore simple (mostley in a lack of equipement though;) " like those balls..
EASIEST ad fastest version.. grab almonds and dates.. stone the date put some almonds in FINISHED... :p

1 c. raw coconut oil
3/4 c. raw carob (or cocoa)
2 t. vanilla flavor
1 c. raisins, raw nuts, coconut, or whatever you want
Put the coconut oil in a bowl, Put this bowl in another bowl of hot water, When it's melted, stir in the carob to make it smooth, then stir in the other stuff. Spread on wax paper lined cookie sheet, put in fridge or freezer 5-10 minutes to make it hard. Break into pieces
Try experimenting with peppermint or other flavors instead of vanilla.

this is really good, too. id go a little less on the raw coconut oil, a little more on the raw carob, and add a very small amount of agave (not much because it doesnt solidify well) for sweetening ONLY if necessary...or else it tastes a bit too oily

oo..these are really good too...
carob almond balls
1 c. sunflower seeds
1 c. raisins
2 T. raw honey
2 T. carob powder
1 c. almond butter
1/2 c. sesame seeds (optional)
In food processor, chop all seeds/nuts. Add remainder of ingredients to make smooth thick paste. Roll into 1" balls, roll in finely shredded coconut.
Makes 2 dozen
*** note from Michelle: the sesame seeds are optional, but I suggest using them --- makes the texture like a Nestle Crunch Bar

are my current favorite desserts.
RP's brownies take only three ingredients but they are so good...You can use pecans instead if you want a caramelly flavor.
1 cup walnuts
1 cup medjool dates (pitted) not soaked
1/4 cup raw cacao or carob
blend in food processor until it holds together, if it doesn't hold together, blend longer
shmoosh down into the bottom of a 9 X 9 pan, (I use a pyrex) and then pop into the freezer or fridge to set, then cut with a knife, I then place them into a baggy and freeze, so I have them when I want them, many just eat them LOL
hope you like them
you can add nuts on top or frosting if you like
I personally add Rawkinlocs cinnamon roll frosting on top as my choice.
Anna's Apple Pie takes a few more ingredients and a bit more time but really is so easy and so yummy. I used more cinnamon than the recipe called for...
Yummy Apple Cobbler
All I can say to this recipe is WOW! If you are trying to make a really great impression of raw food with some non-raw friends or family, you should definitely serve this. It is as simple as it is delicious.
Pie Filling Ingredients:
5 medium apples
1/2 cup raisins soaked in water for 2-4 hours, or overnight in fridge
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
juice of half a lemon
2 T honey
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp. sea salt
Cobbler Topping Ingredients:
1 1/2 C pecans, not soaked
3/4 C dates, pitted and not soaked
1/2 tsp. sea salt
Peel and chop one of the apples. Place it along with the drained raisins, cinnamon, lemon juice, honey, vanilla, nutmeg and salt in a food processor or high-speed blender. Puree until completely smooth and creamy. Set aside.
Peel, core and slice thin remaining apples. Place slices in a large bowl and gently toss with pureed mix. Place in a medium-sized glass or ceramic dish.
For the topping, in a food processor pulse the pecans until finely ground then add the dates. and continue to grind until evenly mixed. Crumble an even layer of the pecan mixture over the apples.
Place your pan in the dehydrator at 115 degrees for about 4 hours. Serve with coconut creme or as-is warm from the dehydrator. This dish only gets better after a day or so, that is, if you have any left after the first serving.

I came up with this recipe on my own the very first time I went raw and was totally craving chocolate cookie dough. Feel free to experiment, sometimes the sesame can be a little strong. Beware - these measurements are rough estimations only!
2 cups oats
2 handfuls sesame seeds
1/4 c. ground flax seeds
1 c. honey (may need more to keep it sticking together)
several TBSP of nut butter (a mix of different nuts/seeds works best - like almonds, pumpkin seeds and walnuts)
a generous pinch of Celtic sea salt
1/4 to 1/2 cup cocoa powder (depending on how strong you like it)
Whip this all up in the food processor. The dough should be soft and sticky to the touch. You can add walnuts at the last minute if you want. I use a cereal spoon and form small balls of dough, and keep them in the fridge. You can pile the freshly made cookies on top of each other. After a day or two, if there's any left, you might want to let the cookies warm up before eating them. Sometimes they're better that way.
Enjoy! And let me know if you find a variation on this that really hits the spot . . .

I don't remember who on here posted this, but I'm eating it now. Yum!!
Ice cream sundae:
banana ice cream (see recipe above)

For the choc sauce I used RP's choc mouse recipe...you can find it on here...super easy...I just don't remember the exact measurements. So good...I added more water for a sauce.
