Raw Mint Oreo Cookies
Well I certainly dedicated a big chunk of my time today to come up with some interesting 'green' dessert. I had many- but this one is what it ended with. Never was a big fan of oreos, but when it comes to creating raw recipes, it gets realllllly fun and creative :) So I went for it! Fresh minty goodness. Enjoy!
For the filling:
1 cup of spinach (juiced- for color)
1 cup cashews
1 cup dates
10-15 mint fresh mint leaves
For the outer cookies:
1 cup almonds
1 cup pitted dates
1 tsp raw cacao powder
First juice spinach, then blend spinach juice and mint together first, in a food proccessor. Add in cashews and dates after. Place in seperate bowl.
Now blend your outer cookie part. Roll in a ball in your hand, then smash into a circle :)
Place filling on the outer cookie, top with another outer cookie, and smash together.
Freeze for about an hour to hold the mixture.
