It’s a beautiful time of year when the peaches are ripe! I eat them only this time of year which makes them a special treat. To ripen faster, place in a paper bag and put in a dark place. It’s nice when the skin just peals away with you fingers with no effort but usually you need a peeler. I have an allergy to the birch tree, it’s very common and so many people don’t have a clue about it. The main allergen in birch trees is highly cross-reactive to many plant foods but cooking destroys the allergen protein. The most common are apples, peaches, kiwi, hazelnuts and almonds. Well that clears that up, back to peaches. Peach apple crisp is the bomb! But we are making fried peaches today that goes well with pancakes, oatmeal, ice cream and much more.
I have so many choices for my first blog and raw cookie dough seems like the first one to master because it is a very easy no measure recipe and it makes life a little more fun.
I could keep talking about how much I love it but I will spare you. This recipe is brilliant with my home-made coconut ice cream and you can get creative by making cookie dough ice cream cake and pie.
My 10 year old son Judd loves to make this recipe and he helped me take pictures.
2 big scoops of honey
3 big scoops of peanut butter or other nut butter
3 big scoops of coconut oil
2 big scoops of butter
1 little scoop of coconut sugar
2 big scoops of sunflower seeds
1 scoop of hemp hearts
1 scoop of coconut
2 cups oatmeal
Pinch of salt
Mini chocolate chips
Blend the honey, peanut butter, coconut oil, butter, vanilla and sugar until creamy. Grind and add the oatmeal and sunflower seeds. Also mix in coconut, hemp hearts, salt and mini chocolate chips.
Place dough in the fridge for 10 or 20 minutes. After, roll into 1 inch balls on a pan, then freeze and put in an air tight bag or container and place in the fridge or freezer.
A single batch makes about 50 balls.
Feel free to add half a mashed banana, protein powder, dried fruit, cacao nibs, seeds or nuts. Make them your own.
For fancy balls you can roll in coconut, hemp seeds or dip in chocolate.
My next post will involve peaches and cardamom.
I wish for health and happiness to all!
