The raw food diet is a craze right now. A raw food diet based on unprocessed and uncooked plant foods, such as fresh fruit and vegetables, sprouts, seeds, grains, beans, nuts and dried fruit. It is asserted that heating food above 110ºF is believed to destroy enzymes in food that can assist in the digestion and absorption of food. Cooking is also thought to diminish the nutritional value and "life force" of food. My little sister, Jill who goes by Kin's, shared this recipe with me a while back and I made it yesterday and just pulled it out of the dehydrator this morning. These cookies were amazing and really good for you. I made a few tweaks to it but, I think it made them better. Quantities can be fudged, this is a very forgiving recipe. Make sure to buy 'raw' nuts and not roasted. If it doesn't say 'raw', it is roasted.
