Sugar Free No Bake Peanut Butter Cookies


{A recipe from our Raw Foods Contributing Author, Teniel Moore.}

If you have been following along for a while now, you will know I’m into easy, healthy, but still  DELICIOUS food.

It does not get much easier than a no bake cookie. Even better when it contains peanut butter.  One of my all time favourite spreads.


No Sugar No Bake Peanut Butter Cookies


1 cup of oat bran (available in health food stores)

1 cup of finely shredded coconut

1-2 tbs natural peanut butter

1 tbs tahini

1 tbs coconut oil

2 tbs water

Pinch salt

stevia to taste


How To:

Blend all the ingredients in your food processor and roll into around 12 balls. Flatten with a fork and pop in the fridge to firm up a little before you devour them.

 If you prefer them rolled into balls you can do that also. I like the cookie shape better.


If you have a high speed blender you can whip up your very own natural peanut butter in minutes.
 If buying peanut butter from the store, read the labels. It should not contain anything other than peanuts. Organic is always a better option if available.

Sugar Free Raw Chocolate Brownie Bites


{A recipe from our Raw Foods Contributing Author, Teniel Moore.}

Oh how I love the combination of chocolate, nuts and peanut butter. To me, its like a match made in heaven, so this super fast brownie bite seemed the perfect thing to whip up when I was feeling like a quick sweet treat.

This slice is super rich and not meant to be overly sweet.  It is perfect for those wanting to cut back on sugar or who are on a candida diet.

If you love this combination as much as I do, I’m sure you are going to enjoy this one!


Sugar Free Raw Chocolate Brownie Bites

1/2 cup melted Organic Coconut Oil

1/4 cup Natural Peanut Butter (homemade is even better)

1/2 cup raw Cacao Powder

generous dash of  Himalayan Pink Salt

3/4 cup  organic walnuts, slightly crushed, but still chunky

Stevia to taste – around 6 drops, but taste as you go


Mix all the ingredients together and press into a small slice container lined with wax paper.

Pop into the freezer for at least 30 minutes to an hour if you can wait that long.  Slice into small squares.

Option:  Replace the stevia with some coconut nectar to make a sweeter version.

Creamy Caramel MilkShake

Resized- Caramel-Milkshake
{by Teniel Moore-Raw Foods Contributor}
Growing up I was always a sucker for a delicious creamy caramel milkshake.
So when I came up with this combination I was pretty happy with what I had created, and knowing it was raw, dairy free and no added sugar had me doing a happy dance in the middle of my kitchen.
This recipe uses some interesting raw powders that maybe you have used before, or maybe its something totally new to you.
“This high protein powder has a great mineral profile with significant quantities of calcium and magnesium.  It also contains the amino acid, lysine.  Mesquite has a sweet, distinctive flavor with a hint of caramel.  Its low GI if 25 helps maintain stable blood sugar levels.  Mesquite has been used as a staple food by native American desert dwellers for thousands of years.”
“An excellent source of carbohydrates, fibre, vitamins and minerals, Lucuma Powder smells divine and has a creamy citrus flavor.  This exotic Peruvian fruit is known as the “Gold of the Incas”, and is considered one of the lost crops of the Incas.
Lucuma Powder is a very versatile and tasty gourmet ingredients in ice cream, yogurt, milkshakes, cocktails, cakes and desserts.”
I encourage you to try these and see for your self how sweet and delicious they can make your raw treats.
So get your blender out and lets begin:

Asian Raw Noodles

{by Teniel Moore-Raw Foods Contributor}
I adore asian flavors, so I was so happy to come up my raw version of asian style noodle salad. This is a delicious and refreshing salad using kelp noodles as the base.
Salad Ingredients:
1 pack kelp noodles (see below)
1 zucchini spiralled
1 carrot spiralled (optional)
1/2 corn cob raw
1/4 red capsicum sliced finely
lots of fresh coriander/ cilantro stem and all chopped finely
red chilli for garnish
1 large spring onion sliced on an angle
crushed cashews for garnish
black sesame seeds for garnish
Sauce Ingredients:
1.5 tbsp of almond butter
 1 tbsp of miso soaked in a little water to make runny
1/2 large lime – this was a very juicy lime so you might need more
Stevia to taste  or coconut nectar to taste
1 small garlic clove minced
1 tsp of grated ginger minced
1 tbsp of water to make the sauce go further


Mix all these sauce ingredients together really well and pour all through noodles. Mixing well
with tongs to combine. Serve piled high on a nice serving plate.
Garnish with crushed cashews, black sesame seeds, cilantro and chilli slices & a wedge of lime.
Makes 2 generous servings


One of my favorite tools in my raw food kitchen is my spirooli.
The brand I use is Chef Avenue. This makes great noodles out of vegetables.
I used my spirooli to make the zucchini and carrot noodles for this recipe.
It makes eating veggies so much fun.
Kelp Noodles:
Kelp noodles are a wonderful ingredient. They really have no flavor so can be very versatile in raw food uncooking.
They are actually a sea vegetable in the form of a noodle. Made from only kelp, salt and water.
Kelp noodles do not need to be cooked.
My Tip:
Soak your kelp noodles in filtered water with the juice of a lemon for at least a couple of hours.
This is recommended as it helps make the noodles softer. Give it a go it really works.
Then drain well and they are ready to go.

DIY Probiotic Coconut Yogurt

{by Teniel Moore-Raw Foods Contributor}

Who loves coconuts as much as I do?

They are so versatile, there is so much you can make with them, and they are so good for you.

Today I’m going to share with you my super easy, DIY coconut yogurt, that will have you asking yourself why you have not been making it yourself before this

Why make your own?

Well, why pay a fortune for some gourmet coconut yogurt in the shops when you can DIY?

Plus the fun bonus of making it & flavoring it, however, your heart desires.

This is a great substitute if you are on a dairy-free diet or perhaps you’re vegan. It is also great for some extra probiotics, without all the extra sugars the store bought ones contain. So let’s get started.

What you will need:

~ Sterile glass jar with lid (mason jar works well)

~ 2- 3 Thai young coconuts

~ 2 probiotic capsules

~ Some muscle for opening your coconut

~ High-speed blender

~ dehydrator (optional) this will speed up the process but is not necessary


~ Open up your young Thai coconuts, however, works best for you. I love to throw them down hard on our cement drive till they crack open. The kids always want to get involved in this part. Or you could be more civilized and use a clever to open them up. A little tip is to have a container handy so that you catch any coconut water that might run out as your cracking it open.

~ Drain all the coconut water out of the coconuts and set aside.

~ Scoop out all the coconut flesh (sometimes called coconut meat)

~ Place all of the coconut flesh from 2 – 3 coconuts into your high-speed blender along

   with 1/4 cup of the coconut water and the 2 probiotic capsules. Just break them open

   and pour them in.

I like my coconut yogurt thick so I only add 1/4 cup of the coconut water.  Start with that amount and add more if needed. If you are using 3 coconuts you might need to add a little more coconut water.

~ Blend until smooth thick & creamy

~ Pour your coconut mixture into a sterilised glass bottle with the lid on. Sit out on the counter in a warmish spot for at least 8 hours or overnight.   (If you have a dehydrator pop the glass jar with lid into the dehydrator ((taking out all the trays so it can fit in nicely))  This works like a charm on 100 degrees for 5 hours.)

~ You will know your coconut yogurt is ready as it will have that slight tart taste to it that yogurt has.

~ Keep in the fridge & add what ever flavourings your heart desires. I like to keep

   my plain.


Also, you can make your coconut yogurt savoury by adding things like chili sauce or garlic, lemon & dill. Like I always say ” your only limited by your imagination” so go for it.

I hope this has inspired you to try something new and get making your own dairy- free, sugar- free yogurt. Get the kids involved, they will love it
