Raw treats.

I have to give my mom all the credit for introducing me to this recipe. It's a raw vegan dessert (which makes it dairy-free), and it's also gluten-free and sugar-free. It tastes a lot like oatmeal raisin cookie dough bites to me, but I've seen it called Walnut Raisin Truffles or even Walnut Raisin Fudge.

Whatever it is, it's delicious.

Here are the easy peasy steps.

Your ingredients:
Raisins
Coconut (preferably the kind without added sugar)
Walnuts

Scoop out 1 cup of walnuts and dump it into your food processor.

Grab 1 cup of raisins and do the same.

Pulse a few times to mix.

Then let it blend for about a minute.

Amazingly, it'll begin to clump together and have the same exact texture as cookie dough.

Pull out 1 teaspoon of dough and roll it in your hands.

Then pour some coconut onto a plate.

And roll the little ball around until it's fully coated with coconut.

You can also use carob chips, cinnamon, or any number of coatings to change it up a bit. This made about 15 teaspoon-size truffles, which is plenty because of their rich flavor.

Enjoy!
