“Chocolate, Chocolate Chip” Cookies Raw!

I had a craving, late last night and it turned into a great raw food recipe for chocolate, chocolate chip cookies! The secret ingredient in these is zucchini. It adds nutrition and moisture but no flavor. Walnuts, of course are very healthy but optional in this recipe. You can add cacao nibs but taste them first so you are sure you like the flavor they impart. Really, they are cacao, cacao nib cookies!

    Jackie: You would order the raw oat flour and raw oats. If you call them, they will know exactly what you need, as I order from them alllllll the time.

    You’re chocolate cookies look so good….I want to make them but an still confused about flour. I bought some oat grains (I think???) and I am sprouting them. Then do I put them in the blender to turn them into flour? I also looked at the web site for flour and felt confused about what to order. Those cookies are really beautiful and I’m determined to make them ….even though I don’t have this raw flour thing figured out. You are an inspiration. Thank you.

    Hi Susan!
    I really agree that zucchini gives texture and nutrition to a food coz I’ve tried using this when I was baking and it really helps a lot. Can I use the ordinary butter instead of coconut butter?
    Thanks for the post and waiting for your reply.

      I don’t use butter in any of these recipes. The goal is to make them healthier, and vegan. There is a big textural difference between butter and coconut butter so I don’t know what the outcome would be.

    Diane….you should put that energy into getting a dehydrator! 🙂

    Thank you, Susan.
    I will get my way around that, dehydrator. 🙂

    Hello there!

    These look amazing as do your other recipes!

    But i don’t have a dehydrator. Is there another way, or even a few, that i can try?

    Please help, I have been searching for an answer… But I would rather like to hear it from someone who comes up with delicious foods!

      There are many recipes on the site that don’t require a dehydrator. If you are concerned about keeping things raw…you really should consider a dehydrator. Otherwise, I have heard that people have used ovens at their lowest temps with the door ajar. But I do have my concerns about that as it isn’t too energy efficient.

    Spelt or Barley flakes work beautifully in raw cookie recipes like this one. They are bit lighter and give the cookie a really lovely texture..both on the plate and in your mouth.
    much love

    Wow! It seems that my search for healthy brownies is over. These look so delicious! I’m glad to see that going raw doesn’t have to leave out yummy treats! Thanks.

    I often need a substitute for oats as well – GF has to come before raw for me. I often sub with buckwheat flakes, but I try to limit the amount that I need for the recipe because lots of oats = yummy, while lots of buckwheat flakes = sometimes a bit blah. I’ve found that recipes for sweet things like cookies and cakes that need a lot of buckwheat flakes just don’t work for me at all…I would be reluctant to try the above for the same reason, but if I gave it a go I would probably cut down on the flour and the flakes and try and swing it that way. One sub I can think of is coconut, but you’ll end up with a totally different flavour… So I would also welcome any ideas for GF subs for oats if anybody has them 🙂

    And by the way, those are some GOOD-lookin’ cookies 😉

      You can buy certified gluten free oats. 🙂
