We have recently added a group of organic flours to our vast line of superfood ingredients. We now carry organic almond flour, organic cashew flour, raw organic hemp flour, & raw, organic coconut flour. These flours are great additions to raw cookie & bread recipes & are gluten-free. They're great for people on the Paleo diet too! Check out some of our favorite recipes using these new flours below...

Raw Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe - these are quick, easy & super delicious! And the best part is no eggs or refined sugars & flours.

 Ingredients:

Cookie Dough
• 1 3/4 cups organic cashew flour
• 3/4 cup ground raw, organic oats
• 1/4 cup raw, organic Agave Nectar
• 2 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
• 1/4 cup raw, organic coconut oil

Raw Chocolate Chips
• Can use our raw, organic cacao nibs or make your own using the recipe below!

• 2 Tablespoon raw, organic coconut oil
• 1/2 cup raw or lightly roasted, organic carob powder
• 1/2 cup raw, organic cacao powder
• 4 T raw, organic agave nectar (or coconut nectar works well too!)
• 2 teaspoon organic vanilla extract

Directions:
Place all ingredients in your food processor to mix, & mix until ingredients form a dough. Shape the dough into one large ball and place in the fridge while you make your chocolate chips. For the chips mix all the ingredients into a medium bowl. Roll the dough out onto parchment paper & place in the freezer for about 30 minutes. When chocolate is frozen, cut into chips. Use a ceramic knife for a sharp cut - can make large chocolate chips or tiny chips this way. Mix chips into dough & roll into mini balls (about an inch big).  Refrigerate on parchment paper for 30 minutes until dough has hardened & cookies aren't sticky. Enjoy!

Raw Coconut Cookie Bites -these easy to make bites use our coconut flour & fresh coconut for a tropical treat anytime!

Ingredients:
• 1 cup raw, organic almond butter or your favorite nut butter (macadamia nut butter also works
  well with the coconut)
• 1/4 cup organic coconut sugar
• 1/2 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
• 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
• 1/2 teaspoon raw, organic cinnamon powder
• 1/4 to 1/3 cup coconut flour
• 1/2 cup shredded coconut 

Directions:
In a bowl, place the nut butter, coconut sugar, vanilla, salt, cinnamon, and 1/4 cup of coconut flour. Mix it with a fork until well combined.  Touch the tip of your fingers. You should be able to make balls without having the dough stick to your fingers. Depending on the oil content of your butter, you may need to add some additional coconut flour. If  your mix is too dry, you can add a little water. Make balls about 1 inch in diameter & roll them in the coconut flakes before placing them unto a cookie sheet.
  Place your cookie bites into the fridge for about 30 minutes.  You can them place them into a container and store them in the fridge. *Remember to use parchment paper so they don't stick. Recipe makes about 1 to 1 1/2 dozen.

**Cood Idea: Feel free to roll in other toppings like crushed up nuts, chopped dried berries, nibs, & more!**
