Unbaked Fig Bars

Unbaked fig bars by Gena Hamshaw

It’s amazing to me that a dessert this good can be free of refined flour or refined sugar. These fig bars have all of the chewiness and sweetness of traditional Fig Newton cookies, but they’re made with wholesome almonds, oats, and real dried figs. From Choosing Raw: Making Raw Foods Part of the Way You Eat by Gena Hamshaw.

Coconutty for Chocolate Chip Cookies

Coconutty raw chocolate chip cookies by Gena Hamshaw

These cookies taste every bit as sweet and indulgent as a cookie should, but they’re surprisingly nutritious. Walnuts contribute healthy omega-3 fatty acids, while coconut lends its anti-inflammatory properties and cacao nibs give the cookies a little antioxidant boost. Whether for benefits or for the taste, I enjoy these cookies both as midday snacks and as dessert. From Choosing Raw: Making Raw Foods Part of the Way You Eat by Gena Hamshaw.

Velvety Chocolate Mousse

velvety chocolate mousse from practically raw desserts by amber shea crawley

For some of you, avocado pudding is probably old news, but for others of you, this might be the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Avocado creates a silken texture that you have to taste to believe (and I promise you won’t notice any avocado flavor). From Practically Raw Desserts * ©2013 by Amber Shea Crawley.
