Tart, chewy lemon macaroons. I’d recommend at least doubling this recipe, as the cookies are addictive and go quite fast!
1 cup cashews, soaked for 4 hours
zest of 1 lemon
½ cup fresh lemon juice, (approximately 2 lemons)
1 cup dry shredded coconut
¼ cup agave
Yum! I just added a pinch of salt to balance out the sweetness and some almond pulp that was sitting in my freezer. I I love the flavor and found it less of a mess than other raw cookie recipes
Has anyone tried substituting the coconut for regular nuts?
I just wanted to follow up on the last comment I posted. I have since made 3 batches. 2 with organic almonds and 1 batch with raw organic cashews. I have to say that personally I prefer the Almond ones much better. There were much more moist and yeilded several more cookies than the cashwes. They were supper yummy and I love them!! I will be giving them away for Christmas. Thanks again!!!
Smart, Healthy, Super Yummy cookie. I too have trippled the batch.I do not happen to be vegan, but my wonderful neighbor and friend is. She made this cookies a few days ago and I swear I am finding excuses to go to her house to have more!!! They are so good! So I went out today and got the Cashews to make my own. I however already had slivered Organic Almonds at home. I soaked them and made them first. They are still in my dehydrater as we speak. I justed asumed these could be made with a different type of similar nut. But just in case, the cashews are soaking right now for tomorrow. Again, thanks for the wonderful recipe that will be shared for years to come! Also, I added just a bit of raw honey comb.
Hmm, Irish Moss is a good idea for that texture of a SAD lemon bar.
Oooo, lemon bar version? Post the recipe when you're done. I think I would try my lemon bar version with more coconut (for the filling) and Irish Moss for texture.
I agree... triple, quadruple this recipe! It is my absolute favorite!
These are definitely a keeper. Good advice to double, triple, quadruple the batches. They are always SAD eater approved by co-workers and friends. I think next time, I will make an almond crust and press dough on top to make a lemon bar version.
I absolutely love these cookies! I just made five times the amount of what is used in this recipe because every time I put them in the dehydrator I always snack on them before they're even done! By the time they're done they're nearly all gone! Ha, so now I made a really huge batch! ;-)
Thank you so much for this awesome recipe!!
Love these - they came out awesome!!
My husband made these cookies today and they are absolutely delicious. Thank you, Kandace, for sharing this recipe.
Mmmm, these were great! I love lemon bars and macaroons, so this was perfect. It was also SAD eater approved.
so i just put my cookies into the dehydrator and i cant wait till they are done!, i added some lavender to the recipe for a floral tast, thanks so much, i will let you know how they turn out
These are delicious!! After 3 months of eating raw food, this is the first recipe that I actually said "mmm" out loud to! Congratulations on combining health with tastiness!
Bummer. I wanted these right now! I just started soaking my cashews. I will have these in the dehydrator tonight! I can't wait to taste them!
These are my FAVORITE cookies!!! MMMMMMMM So good! I want to try every variation!
I made these with almonds and they were DELICIOUS!!! I didn´t make a double batch, and that is my only regret...mos def on the make again and often list!!
WOW! I can tell these will be delicious - it's amazing I got the dough into the dehydrator without eating it ALL! Anyway... 2 lemons wasn't nearly enough, FYI. I buy my lemons at Trader Joe's, and they are rather small. I am sure 5 would have been more like it! I didn't have enough as a result, and used orange juice to make up the difference. The result tastes delicious... no complaints! Can't wait to eat these cookies! I am not sure I'll be able to leave any for DD!
can u use macadamia nuts instead of cashews?
just made them...love them of course!
anyone tried them with lime? i might do that next.
One word; Amazing! I couldn't help but make these as soon as I saw them. My non-raw mom loved them, too :)
OMG these are AWESOME!!! My 3.5yo LOVES them...as do I. And what is more surprising is my anti-healthy husband even loves them! ha! Kudos to the person that came up with these!
Never mind...I will soak them in the morning since I don't have lemons right now.
These look tasty. Would they develop the same texture just leaving them refrigerated for a couple of hours.
Okay, my cashews are going soaking before I go to bed tonight! Then, in the morning, I will make these! Do you think it's okay if I soak the cashews overnight?
These make such beautiful little tea cookies!
I am going to soak cashews and make these and post a picture on the thread kandace started! I made them once, but they spoiled in the dehydrator and now I have a brand new excalibur that won't spoil! Yes! I will of course let you know how they come out. :)
I just ordered a dehydrator. I'm counting down the days till it gets here so I can make these cookies.
Am new to raw food and do not have a dehydrator yet. Is there an alternative to a dehydrator I can use temporarily?
