Raw Chocolate Chip Cookies with some Girl Scouts!

by Nicole on April 3, 2012

Hi friends!

How are you this morning?

I got up at 8:30…I feel like half the morning is gone already! I’ve been waking up from 5:00 – 6:30 and then falling back asleep until around 8:30. So annoying! I’m lucky I can sleep in because my schedule is flexible, but it basically just means my day goes an hour and a half later…which I guess is fine because I need the sleep.

Yesterday I got the very fun opportunity to do a talk and make a healthy snack with a 2nd grade girl scout troupe. This is one of the best parts of my job honestly. I love going to visit kids and talk to them about healthy eating. I was very impressed by all the healthy snacks they love to eat. We also talked about how healthy snacks make us feel, verse junky snacks. They agree that junky snacks make them feel tired and give them belly-aches. (Not that too much of healthy food can’t do that too!)

I wanted to share the recipe for the raw chocolate chip cookie I came up with because they LOVED it so much. I had to do a completely nut free recipe because of some tree nut & peanut allergies. Seriously, this was a huge hit and something I was eating by the spoonful when I came up with the recipe.

Teachers: You could totally make this with your class as well. I also have a little whole grain worksheet you can give out to your class. If you want to email me, I’ll send it to to you!

These are a perfect snack to make at home with your kids. They can eat it with a spoon or have fun making shapes. They also can make this completely by themselves because there is no heating, baking, cutting etc. We even just used a plastic cup to measure everything. You can also play with the agave & coconut oil amounts to suit your needs exactly. Have fun with this!

Like I said, visiting schools & groups is one of my most favorite parts of my job. If you want me to come do a snack or talk or both with your group, class or school, I’d LOVE to. Email me and we’ll chat about it! 

I’m off for a full day of work and a run at some point. Enjoy your day!

What’s your favorite thing to bake or make with kids?

Oh so much fun! I can see why it’s the most rewarding part of your job — that is so cool!

And I’m totally in love with these raw cookies!! I even have all the ingredients on hand to make them myself, love that! (I may make them right now!)

that would be my favorite part of the job too :)

Great idea! I’ve got all the ingredients on hand. When nap time is over we’ll be making these for our afternoon snack. Yum!

That sounds so fun (your job ROCKS), and looks like a delicious, simple recipe! Question: can it be done without the food processor part? Also, are you using the coconut oil at room temperature? I have so much trouble mixing when it’s so clumpy!

Regardless, I’ll be giving these a try. I love making cookies where there’s no guilt about eating the batter!


Lindsay @ Lindsay's List April 3, 2012 at 2:26 pm

Yep…making these NOW …paired with the silence of naptime and a cup of coffee!!!!!!!!!!!!
