Raw Vegan Spring Roll Bowls

Raw Vegan Spring Roll Bowl @Rawmazing.com

I love making spring rolls. I love them so much that I often keep a bag of my spring roll mix in the fridge for impromptu spring roll addiction easement (wink).

Taking this little addiction of mine into the latest trend…the “Buddha Bowl”, it wasn’t too hard to make the leap to a spring roll bowl. It’s easy to put together and has all the taste of the spring rolls without the labor and rice wrappers. Which I didn’t miss.

My favorite mix is carrots, scallions, cabbage, avocado and snow peas. You can pre-mix everything but the avocado and keep that for more than a week in the refrigerator. Just add the avocado right before you use the mix and it will be fresh.

The “peanut” sauce dressing is actually made from fresh almond butter. And in this recipe, the sweetness comes from dates! All whole foods for this recipe.

Raw Sunflower Almond Butter Cacao Chip Cookies @Rawmazing.com

Sometimes you need a cookie. Well for me, I kind of need a stash of cookies. That said, I would rather have my cookies be full of nutrients, not empty calories. Almonds, sunflower seeds and cacao nibs are full of nutrients! And these little guys are great travelers so if you need something for your lunch, or car trip, pick them!

Raw Sunflower Almond Butter Cacao Chip Balls @Rawmazing.com

The cookies start with a base of sunflower almond butter (recipe to follow) and with the quick addition of oats, coconut sugar and cacao nibs, rolled into little spheres of delight. And did you know that there are studies that say that people who eat nuts every day tend to live longer? Check out Nuts May Extend Your Life over at one of my favorite sites, NutritionFacts.org.

These are high calorie and as you know, I am not one of those raw food people that promote pigging out on the desserts. As always, eat in moderation as a wonderful treat to your healthy diet. These do have a little coconut oil in them but a very small amount if you figure there is less than 1/12th of a tablespoon in each cookie.
