Raw Vegan Recipe: Kristen’s Cacao Cookie Crumble

by Kristen Suzanne in almonds, cashews, raw chocolate

EASY RAW VEGAN RECIPE TIME! 
Here is a simple and satisfying little recipe that can be put together in minutes. Yum Yum! I hope you like it as much as I do. But, how could you not? It has raw chocolate in it. Many of you have let me know that you’ve been loving up my Cherry Chocolate Bomb Shake recipe, and I suspect you same peeps will like this raw vegan recipe, too!


I think it’s important to have an arsenal of EASY Raw Vegan recipes available that only use a handful of ingredients. It’s one of the keys for succeeding with this wonderful lifestyle. I’m going to be relying on them even more in the near future as my family grows. When my little bundle of joy arrives I will be more than grateful to have quick, healthy recipes for my family to thrive on and enjoy.


So, back to this fun recipe, Kristen’s Cacao Cookie Crumble. There are many ways to enjoy this delectable treat. I eat it plain, in a little cup (as pictured). My husband LOVES it all by itself, too. We also like to slice organic bananas and sprinkle it on top. Adding it on top of raw ice cream or mousse is awesome -> oh boy! My mom loves it by itself alongside a cup of organic decaf coffee. It’s versatile, as most Raw Vegan foods are, so it can be enjoyed as part of a breakfast, lunch, dessert, or snack! :)



I made a big batch a couple weeks ago and we just polished it off Tuesday night. I think we’re going to enjoy this as our dessert on Valentine’s Day… I better make some more! 


Kristen’s Cacao Cookie Crumble
By Kristen Suzanne of KristensRaw.com
Yield approximately 10 servings

1 cup almonds
1 cup cashews
1/2 cup raw chocolate powder
1 vanilla bean, seeds only
1 teaspoon chocolate extract
pinch Himalayan crystal salt
14 medjool dates, pitted and chopped


Using a food processor, fitted with the “S” blade, process the nuts until they are a coarse ground consistency. Add the chocolate powder, vanilla bean, chocolate extract, and salt, and pulse briefly to mix. Add the chopped dates and process until thoroughly combined like a chunky crumble. Note: The longer you process it, the more oils get released from the nuts making it stick together more.
