Raw Gingerbread cookies

Don't forget to visit also my Facebook page HERE and give me your like and share, thanks!

Are you also experiencing the christmas stress? I spent three hours in kitchen preparing my christmas raw sweets, not being able to clean up afterwards. Fortunately I have a great, thoughtful boyfriend, that did it for me. I wish you all have such helping and loving partner. 

Christmas is a time of love, happiness, thoughtfulness.. but for most of us, it's just time of stress, spending money, overeating and drinking. Forget the money, forget the food and alcohol and just spend time with your family and friends, love and share, enjoy the holidays. Make small things to please you r beloved ones, prepare some healthy sweets, bowl of fresh fruits or something that will make them smile. Christmas shouldn't be about money, it should be about showing love and gratitude.

If you feel stressed and overwhelmed, just stop right there in the middle of what you're doing. Stop and sit down, clear your mind and enjoy yourself. Nothing is more important then your health and as we know, stress is not good for us. So don't let the holidays to make you going crazy over a spoiled pie or christmas dinner, smile and forget. People that care about you will always enjoy your spoiled pie. 

Merry Christmas my dear readers and try my raw gingerbread recipe! Yes, they're as delicious as they look! Sweet, soft and christmasy.

Raw Gingerbread cookies

2 1/2 cups pulp from coconut milk or almond flour
1 1/2 cup fresh dates, pitted
1 Tbs cinnamon
1/2 tsp pure vanilla powder or 1/2 vanilla stalk
1/3 tsp ground ginger
pinch of nutmeg

gingerbread cutters

Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until you get a formable dough. Freeze for at least 2 hours. Stir on a table and use your cutters to create gingerbread men or other shapes. If you're too lazy or stressed by the christmas pressure, just form into balls, they'll be delicious in any shape! Place in freezer at least for 3 hours to firm up.
