Raw Vegan Gingerbread Cookies

Ok, so, I have to get to a rugby game, like, now haha But I need to quickly share a most delicious recipe first!

I have been searching for this one since I made them this summer. I could remember the gist of how I made these little treats, but I needed the original recipe to make sure all was perfect before I posted. I e-mailed Averie, the mastermind behind Love Veggies and Yoga, to ask her where the recipe went she had posted on her site. She was such a sweetheart to get back to me very promptly. Her site was under a bit of construction, but I just got an e-mail now that it is all up and running and thus, access to the yummiest vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free cookie recipe...

These treats are perfect for the fall season right now, and into Christmas season as well. Even my very-vegan-scared boyfriend loved them. I made enough for people to try, but between the two of us, they did not last that long. They are so flavorful and packed with nutrients and plenty of Omega-3s and fiber.


1/4 cup of ground flax seeds
1/4 cup of walnuts
1/3 cup of almond meal (or raw almonds that you grind yourself)
2 Tsp cinnamon
2 Tsp Ginger
1 Tsp Nutmeg
1/2 Tsp All-spice
3 Tbsp Agave

Blend all ingredients together in a good blender of food-processor. I used a blender, but it was a lot of work and much messier than using a food-processor.

If the dough is too sticky, add a bit more almond meal to make dough workable.

Pre-heat oven for 300 F. Form dough into cookie shapes. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment or wax paper and bake for 10-12 minutes.

Yield about 16 cookies.

*You can also naturally dehydrate these cookies to be completely raw. Form dough into cookie shapes and place on your counter-top to dehydrate for about 12 hours.

MOST IMPORTANT STEP: Make some yummy herbal tea, and eat the cookies :)

Mmmmm White Ambrosia by Tea Forte, delish!

I will post pictures to follow the recipe, but I am now really late for the game.
