@cugini_eats  – Raw Cookie Dough from Liv & Raf

We could rave about this recipe from Liv and Raf at @cugini_eats but they have kindly done it for us!

“In all honesty this is one of the best recipes we’ve made. The taste is incredible for how simple it is. Great for a healthy dessert alternative which genuinely tastes like raw cookie dough. We like to serve it in a jar to munch on, in balls as a quick snack as well as crumbled with raspberries and @purecocobella yoghurt. Makes about 8-10 servings. You won’t regret trying this!”

The lovely couple behind @the_reluctant_vegan are nothing if not approachable. If going plant-based seems unachievable, head to this account for friendly inspo and ideas. They wowed out at how useful our yoghurt was to thicken curries and this one they whipped up seems so authentic and delish!!
