Thyme Lemon Cookies

It is -5 degrees in Minneapolis this morning. I look out the window at 4 foot drifts of snow and think, it is March? On the one hand, March can be one of our snowiest months. On the other hand, it usually comes with much warmer temperatures and the snow melts off before you know it. Even though the outside weather isn’t exactly cooperating, I still find myself longing for a bit of spring. This raw food recipe for thyme lemon cookies fit the bill perfectly.



These are simple to put together and require no dehydration. Lemon and thyme marry beautifully as a flavor combination. Did you know that thyme is actually a nutrient dense herb? Full of vitamin K, magnesium and calcium, thyme also has antimicrobial properties. It is also loaded with fiber. Lemons are a great source of vitamin C and also are full of flavonoids that help prevent cancer and are anti-oxidants. I love lemon, and these little cookies are packed full of flavor.

    These look delectable! Good thing I’m not able to reach right through the screen and grab one. 🙂 Thank you for posting zingy little recipe! Your site, photos, recipes, information are nothing but …RAWmazing!!! I currently live in NW Indiana and share your bitter cold weather. Although, being a California transplant, I don’t share your love of long winters. I miss that little red dot in the sky! Have a great weekend and look forward to more yummy goodness! 🙂

    Thanks for this recipe. I’m so happy that I don’t need to use dehydrator for this one 🙂 I have just started discovering the raw food world.
    I also would like to thank you for this rawmazing website. I found it last week while I was fasting (little spring cleaning 🙂 ) and it is a great help and inspiration to stay on the healthy path.

    Oh wow! I am a HUGE fan of raw cookies that don’t require dehydrating (probably because I’m a huge fan of instant gratification). How long do they need in the fridge to set? Not that it will be a deterrent for me trying them though!

      It completely depends on how cold your refrigerator is. At least 1/2 hour but could take longer.

    The cookies look amazing!
    I just wanted to ask is there any major difference between the coconut butter and oil? Here in Europe we have only coconut oil, will it be a good substitute?

    • Susan wrote on March 3, 2011

      There is a difference. The coconut butter has more coconut solids in it. You should be able to substitute but it won’t have the same rich flavor.

    Those sound wonderful. I might have to make these tonight! One question, did you use dried thyme or fresh? Thank you for keeping such a beautiful blog.

      This time of year…dried. 🙂

    I always worry about making nut butter when processing nuts into flour, lol. Probably why I don’t do it too often!

    Those cookie look very tasty. 🙂
