I am currently trying to avoid eating too much sugar. So lately I have really become a fan of raw desserts. They are quick, delicious, and dare I say healthy! Made mainly with nuts, fruit, and natural sweeteners, raw desserts are a favorite in our household.
These may not be the prettiest cookies ever (*cough* actually they might be one of the ugliest) but they taste amazing! One bite and you’ll never believe that they are actually good for you! Well, at least until you look at them again.
If you’re wondering why they are brown, it comes from the almond skins in almond meal. If you want a much prettier, yellow color, simply use almond flour instead!
I also loved these cookies because the possibilities are endless. With a little tweaking, and you can transform these cookies into some chocolate orange meltaways!
These are the perfect cookies for a late night snack without the guilt. Lemon lovers must try this recipe!
