This is a great recipe for Fall. Tahini and maple syrup are a very unlikely, but absolutely heavenly, combination. I know maple syrup isn't technically raw, but it really adds to the flavor. I also feel like maple syrup is one of those non-raw ingredients (like nutritional yeast) that is accepted in raw recipes. The caramel sauce looks and tastes like a slightly nutty caramel, perfect for dipping apples in.
In my efforts to make the raw chocolate halvah, I realized I was super low on cocoa powder, ouch! Fortunately, however, I've decided bumps in the road like that are perfect opportunities to get creative so I started experimenting with some other ingredients until I had something worth eating! I started adding vanilla, then threw in some coconut oil, plus the little bit of cocoa powder that I did have. The nutty sesame flavor mixed with the chocolate, coconut, and vanilla give these little "truffles" a malted chocolate flavor that really surprised (and delighted) me. Definitely a successful endeavor, enjoy!
I had to use up some things in the fridge and came up with a deliciously creamy dip with quite a bite! I used it as a base for lettuce wraps and topped it with black beans, sliced yellow pepper, sliced mushrooms, radishes, and a few pine nuts. So good.

Makes 3 big cookies
These cookies are so yummy! I love them so much! So, last night I was craving Whole Foods' "everything cookies" but of course they don't come raw. SO I decided to experiment in the kitchen and came up with these delicious midnight snacks. This recipe doesn't make enough of them though so you'll have to double it or add more or less of whatever to your tastes! enjoy<33333
A quick, easy and very satisfying salad with foods I have on hand at all times. A good way to get more fermented vegetables in your diet as well. The spicy kim chi is a little too hot for me but the tahini blunts it to just right temperature.
