View Full Version : Banana chocolate chip cookies
05-10-2009, 06:30 PM
I'll admit it, last week I made cooked whole wheat banana chocolate chip muffins by modifying a whole wheat bread recipe.
I decided to make a raw version I thought could be shaped into muffins and instantly ready but the dough was too liquid and needed dehydrating so I made cookies instead, they're dehydrating now.
Here's what I did:
2 cups walnuts
1/2 cup dates
Vanilla, optional, to taste
Chocolate chips (you can make your own raw chocolate, but I chopped an organic 70% cacao bar)
Process all ingredients except chocolate chips in food processor until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips by hand. Shape into cookies on dehydrator sheets and dehydrate to desired consistency.

Sweet! I have all the ingredients already lying around! I'm off to make these right now!
What would happen if I added goji berries or dried cranberries? Would they get too dry?

I don't think dried berries would get much drier. I just had one of these now and they are awesome, to my surprise the chocolate actually melted at the low dehydration temps so if you have them warm they're like out of the oven cookies.
Did you make yours with berries and/or chocolate? How were they?

Nah, I stuck with the recipe for the first batch, but as soon as I get more dates I'm experimenting! They were delicious, by the way. And so quick and easy! I'm making some to take to my super-duper SAD grandparents. Hopefully those will keep them away from the Oreo's ... for a while anyway. Thanks again for the recipe!

Did you make your own raw chocolate chips or did you use premade chocolate like I did? I don't think using non raw 70% cacao is really bad, the amount of sugar is very minimal plus 70% cacao chocolate prevents cancer and heart disease.

I had some vegan carob chips left over from my bread baking days I wanted to use up. I'm not 100% raw these days, plus I didn't want to waste them. I agree with you - even though it's not raw, I think certain chocolate can be beneficial. I wish more people would turn to these raw bad boys rather than that SAD stuff. I can't wait to experiment with more raw cookies:)

Hey thanks for the sharing. Good recap. I will try for sure.

Just made these, they are so good! They're in the dehydrator right now, they almost didn't make it there though, i could have eaten it all.
