It’s almost Valentine’s day! The perfect time to treat your whole body (and your love’s) with a whole food treat! The following decadently delicious raw dessert recipe contains no added sugar, as it uses high fiber raisins and bananas for sweetness. The combination of healthy fats from the nuts and coconut oil also help keep blood sugar spikes from those fruits at bay!
If you don’t want to go to the trouble of setting, rolling, and cutting out the fancy shapes, you can also make the cookie dough into a crumble, and simple sprinkle it over scoops of the ice cream!
