Have you ever tried making raw cookies?  T’is the season of indulgence of sweet treats so try adapting some of your recipes to include a few raw cookies. Why? Because raw cookies are usually gluten and dairy free and include nuts and seeds that are excellent sources of mineral, vitamins, good fats and protein.  So really, the best of both worlds.
