This was my favorite dish at a raw vegan potluck I attended, made by the hostess who ever-so-greatly shared her recipe. She says she celebrates Christmas with this dish. It's a quick and easy recipe that doesn't require a whole bunch of exotic ingredients and equipment. She originally suggests to use 1/2 teaspoon of salt - I used less than that and still found it too salty, so I would suggest starting out with 1/4 teaspoon of salt and take it from there. She also adds 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract to the yam / sweet potato mix but I didn't use any. The mixture is soft but it does somewhat hold its shape. I did a quick calorie estimate for those interested and it comes out to about 2400 calories, so that comes out to about 480/400 calories for each piece a 5/6-serving dish.

*Update* I found out that what I was using was a Sweet Potato and not a Yam, so I made the change. Btw I think it's weird how someone rated this recipe with 2 stars only a moment after I posted it...
One day just mixing up some ingredients and tataaa, perfect cookie dough! Not only does it look like cookies but it has the same consistency and flavor, too!! Try it out, it's so lovely! You can mix whatever ingredients you like in it to make it your favorite cookie! :-)

I found this recipe on a forum somewhere while looking for a nut-free recipe for raw cheesecake. It could easily be made nut-free, all you have to do is either leave the crust out, or make your own nut-free crust! The filling has NO nuts!!!
Hemp might just be my favorite food on the planet. I am repeatedly amazed by its flavor and nutritional profile, and I truly cannot get enough of it. As a growing teenager and an avid runner, the high-calorie, nutrient-dense qualities of this bar, as well as it’s simplicity to make, are why this is probably my favorite raw recipe that I have created. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I have, especially since it’s my first electricity-free recipe!
