Raw Vegan Sugar Cookie Dough Balls

How’s your Hump Day Wednesday going?  I’ve been a busy little bee running errands, going to the grocery store, braved the post office but the line wasn’t too bad.  And I’ve been taking care of the little one who’s still a little under the weather, and am getting ready to go teach yoga.  Whew!  What have you been up to?  School keeping you busy?  Work?  Family stuff?  Fill me in on your news!

I’m glad you enjoyed my last post on everything from Give Away Winners To Hair Salon visits in a new city

 

To Product Reviews.

But moving right along for today…
So ‘Tis the Season for Christmas and Sugar Cookies that are adorably decorated with cute sprinkles.  However, since I cannot eat gluten, eggs, or dairy, most sugar cookie recipes are out of the question, or use too many specialty ingredients.  So what’s a Sugar Cookie Lovin’ Girl like myself to do?  Why that’s easy: Create my own High Raw, All Vegan, Gluten & Soy Free Sugar Cookie Recipe with minimal ingredients!

Averie’s High Raw All Vegan Sugar Cookie Dough Balls
1/4 c Raw Cashews
1/2 c Medjool Dates
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
Optional: 2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
Yields: Approximately 20 small-ish balls

MY OTHER RECIPES

Grind The Cashews

Add the Rest of the Ingredients

Grind to Form Your Dough

Remove Dough…

and if it’s too sticky to work with, pop it in the fridge for an hour and come back to it.  Mine was feeling a little sticky after trying to make a few sugar cookies so I came back to it…

…and then I Formed the Raw Vegan Sugar Cookie Dough Balls

So easy, fast, authentic tasting and just plain old Really Good!

Optional Add-In’s & Extras :
Use Christmas Cookie Cutters and make Stars, Reindeer, Gingerbread men, etc.

Shape into logs, bars, biggerballs, squares, hearts
Decorate with Sprinkles!!!
Frosting or Icing (see my Raw Vegan Icing Recipe Here)
Roll finished product in Cinnamon-Sugar, Brown or White Sugar, Carob, Coconut, Cocoa Nibs, Cocoa Powder, Powdered Sugar
Add in Carob, Coconut, Cocoa Nibs to the “dough” mixture
The sky’s the limit, get creative!!!!!!!!

Raw Veggies have Included:
A Kale Salad with asparagus and my Vegan Slaw Dressing

And Extra Tomatoes and Cauli because I love them so.

And since it’s been chilly, I figured it was a good time to make some Sweet Potato Fries.

Can’t go wrong with these!  Or here’s another recipe link, for you.

Dessert was of course, a few Raw Vegan Sugar Cookie Dough Balls

And I also indulged my Gingerbread attack craving with a few Raw Vegan Gingerbread Cookie Dough BallsNum!

I just noticed that the Raw Vegan Gingerbread Cookie Dough Balls and the Sugar Cookie Dough Balls look remarkably similar in the pictures, but you’ll know you’ve popped a Ginger Ball because of the Snappy Gingery Taste and I love that ginger zing!!!  Plus they’re slightly darker and more traditional gingerbread-man-cookie colored.

And both of my desserts went perfectly with my Vegan Guiltless, Fast, & Easy Vanilla Hot Cocoa

Yoga Today is Tittibhasana (Firefly Pose)  I’m flying away like a firefly…

What’s your Holiday Travel Tip?  We all know that travel is hard on our bodies, minds, spirits, and generally speaking, raises stress levels.  

For me and my Tips Are: remember to breathe, and even if I look silly, I don’t mind busting out a few downward dogs in the airport!  And of course, I travel fairly well-stocked with snacks that meet my approval, but I also don’t obsess on it, either.  Travel is a time for me to try to go with the food flow as much as possible and although I don’t compromise on vegan, I do with the raw part and also with foods that are processed more than I’d choose normally.  And with air travel, I also try to allow enough time for everything, more than I think I need, from parking to check in lines because there’s nothing worse than rushing in an already rushy and harried situation.

How do you stay calm when traveling or when visiting relatives or even having houseguests during the ‘Tis The Season time of year?  What do you do to stay calm and keep things flowing more along the mellow path than the high strung highway?
