Well, if I can figure out where to get those raw olives (or another choc. sub), I'll give it a try and letya know!
04-13-2005, 09:38 AM
Oh, and I fixed the link.

That does sound very good... those Peruvian Olives by the way are outstanding... thanks for the tip, I'll have to give this recipe a try. :p
Have you used the Raw Cacao Nibs (Raw Chocolate Beans) in ice cream yet? - the package suggests this - but I haven't tried it yet. :o
04-13-2005, 11:38 AM
Nope, I haven't. I can't find a place to GET any of these things. :(
Where do you get them? I know I can do online but
a) Instant gratification @ a store is just so .....instantaneous!
b) Shipping charges make me sad.

I agree... it's a drag waiting for chocolate to come in the mail... when you probably want it right then... I can't find this in stores either- but I found a good deal at www.rawfood.com - it's supposed to keep for months so I bought a little extra this time- it's very decadent and has a strong dark chocolate flavor -bitter but good... there are many recipies using cacao bean which I've been meaning to try - but I usually just nibble on it right out of the bag - :rolleyes:

I just made "chocolate" banana ice cream to test for future cookie dough-ing.
I'll stick to fruity versions.

I've seen many posts of recipes with missing critical information. Is this to protect recipes found in books written by participants in this forum? :confused:

My cookie dough recipe:
To make raw cookie dough for ice cream, use a dash of vanilla, dash of salt, a spoonful of coconut butter, large spoonful of almond or cashew butter, spoonful of honey, dash of cinnamon. Mix this up well, it should have the consistency of SAD cookie dough before you add the flour [what would be eggs/ sugar/ butter]. This is the cookie base.
Add either a few ground almonds/ cashews OR a spoonful of coconut flakes[for macaroonie flavor]. Optional: Grind oat groats into flour as a substitute or add to nuts/ coconut to keep the cost/ fat down. Grind cacao nibs until they are flecks and stir in. It shouldn't be really thick, but enough to form into balls. If it's still too moist add more ground nuts/ coconut/ oat flour. Freeze balls until frozen. Next time you make frozen banana ice cream stir some of these bad boys in. I love it! This makes enough for one large bowl of ice cream.
Dehydrated cookies: To make oatmeal cookies add rolled oats to the cookie base then dehydrate for a few hours. For macaroons I grind rolled oats into flour and add half coconut flakes/ half oat flour then dehydrate. For chocolate cookies add rolled oats or oat flour and triple/ quadruple the amount of cacao nibs [ground well], and add more honey to balance.
I wouldn't have been able to stay raw without my cookie dough. It is my "cheat" without cheating. :)

Thanks so much for sharing your recipes. I don't know what happened to Kate's description in the 1st post in this thread, but who cares now!!
I am definitely gonna do this tomorrow. I have tons of frozen banana slices just waiting -- I put up three bunches. ( hate to run out.)
And the cookies sound great to dehydrate, too. By the way, have you ever tried agave nectar instead of honey?
05-19-2005, 12:46 PM
Rawtruth, I hope you like it! You can see the recipe Kate posted by clicking the word "this" in her first post. Didn't sound very appetizing to me, nothin's gonna convince my tastebuds raw olives are chocolate. :)
Agave nectar and honey are interchangeable in my kitchen depending on what I have at hand. Adjust the ratio of wet/ dry ingredients according to the consistency of each. Our local honey coop isn't terribly consistent, sometimes it's really thick and you can taste wildflowers and sometimes it's thinner and filtered like agave. Goes without saying that I'm a beegan. Thanks to an eBay auction I bought 20 pounds of organic honey for $20 so I'll be using that for awhile!
Thanks also for your shower filter recommendation. Still undecided. So little money so many healthy toys to buy! [portable fir sauna, hydro floss, water filters, plus hydroponic gardening stuff. Ack! where to draw the line?!]

Rawsome recipe! Thanks, Sister! Loved the cookie dough...I really miss cookie dough, but this is actually WAY better than SAD cookie dough!
I know what you mean about all the gadgets and fun "green" things to buy. I really want to have an ecohaven someday...they really need to work on making this stuff standard! Good call on the Ebay shopping...quick question, though. How do you know its organic raw when you shop off of Ebay? Does it come certified or something? Or is there a company website? I shop Ebay a lot, and think getting stuff from there is a most excellent idea!
Also thanks for the shower filter tip. I can't find the company I bought mine from, and that is another purchase I am going to have consider. I have only about 6 months worth of filter time left before I'm breathing in chlorinated tap fumes in the shower! UGH!

So glad you like it! I think it tastes better than sad cookie dough too. My favorite combo is rolled oats, ground cacao nibs and coconut. I can't make more than one "serving" at a time, though, I don't have enough self control. In fact, I've only managed to dehydrate the cookies once. How embaressing.
I've been dreaming about an ecohaven too. I recently got a book on earthbag construction and have been reading about how to farm a small 5 acre homestead. With care, it may actually be possible within my lifetime.
The honey I purchased from an eBay seller is in sealed for distribution containers marked certified organic. They bought it at an estate sale. Some things still aren't very popular on eBay [which is good for buyers], especially if they don't have a proper category. Keep looking on ebay for honey, good deals are quite possible.
Thanks for your shower filter tip also, Aubrey. I found one at Real Goods but the filters are pricey:

Where do you buy your cacao nibs from? The last time I ordered some, I got them from Alex the Raw Guru, but the last time on his site, I didn't see any.
Who has them the least expensive? (that's directed to anyone who knows)
Thanks in advance!

I got my recent order from Living Tree thanks to a tip from Raw Truth:
Cacao starts at $15/ pound.
Previously I had ordered from Stone & Giacomotto, and prior to that from EatRaw. I have to say the raw cacao from Living Tree has the most fresh, "chocolatey" flavor of the three.
05-19-2005, 11:00 PM
I just went to Alex's site and sure enough, there they were :rolleyes:
He's selling his for $8/pound with a flat rate $7 shipping charge. So, it still comes out to $15 but with the shipping added to that. I'm gonna try his again and I'll also try the one you (and RawTruth) recommended to compare the flavor of the two.
In the meantime, I'm gonna whip up some of the cookie dough you posted sans the cacao since I don't have any.
05-19-2005, 11:08 PM
Please let us know how the two compare! Would you mind posting the link to Alex's cacao nibs?
05-19-2005, 11:17 PM
Here's the link:
Arrggg!! Okay, looks like I was mistaken due to some sort of typo on their part. At the top of the page, it says 1/2 a pound for $8 BUT if you scroll down near the bottom, it says "Weight - 1.00 lbs. for $8".
How misleading! :rolleyes: :mad:

I just wanted to say that I made the "Pixie Cookies" and pixie cookies GO-OOD! Pixie cookies didn't last a whole day 'cause me and 2 year old ate them all. Must make more!
05-21-2005, 04:03 PM
Lol Rawkinlocs. 'M glad you like them!
05-21-2005, 10:15 PM
Ladies (PixieGreen, Rawtruth, VeganVixen, Aubrey and Rawsomeone)
I figured out a neat little feature that allowed me to split the thread and move all the discussions about sustainable living to it's own thread.
So, you all can mosey on over to this thread:
and continue that conversation there and leave this one to talking about delicious cookie dough recipes! :D
