Rich Raw Double Dark Chocolate Cookies

I am so in a CHOCOLATE mood, because I don’t know, chocolate just makes the world better.

For some reason, I’ve been in a raw-cookie mood lately, even though it’s basically the same as truffles, but hey, it’s kind of like how muffins and cakes are almost the same!

I really wanted to make a dark chocolate version because so far, all the chocolate truffles I’ve made are just, general chocolate. This had to be dark, and bittersweet, and rich, so I set off to find the ingredients for that!

There’s a lot of awesome, superfood ingredients in here, I’ve been using my goji and blueberry acai powder a lot. Of course, you can use different powders if you want, or leave them out if you don’t have them, it won’t make all that much of a difference in taste, mostly in health!

Be sure to not let everything become too blended as I find the little chunks of almonds and cashew really give it that awesome crunch. In case you’re wondering, I am using a Vitamix Turboblender with two speeds, and I use a food tamper with it.

1 tablespoon flaxseeds
1 tablespoons walnuts
1 tablespoon goji berry powder
1 tablespoon blueberry and acai powder (or other berry powder)
1 tablespoon virgin coconut oil

Add all the ingredients except the vegan chocolate chips and small pinch of cacao nibs in the blender. Blend on high speed with a spoon tamper (if possible) and use a spoon to turn it around a few times until the mixture is mostly sticky but still contain some whole bits. (That will give it a nice crunch!)

Spoon the mixture out into a small bowl and add the teaspoon of vegan chocolate chips and a small pinch of cacao nibs (just to give it more of a crunch). Mix it up with a spoon.

To shape them into cookies, you can do what I did, put the mixture into a one tablespoon round measuring spoon, then press it in, and use a small spoon to scoop it out. This will create a very good cooking half circle.

Keep repeating until all the cookies are made.
