The Young and Raw say, "Pizza night is on with this recipe!" Raw pizza is always delicious but can often take some patience and a few more steps than one has time for. This recipe is actually very easy, and if you get the crust going in the dehydrator the night before, will take you about 10 minutes to prepare. Play around with your toppings. Here are some recommendations: black botija olives, fresh baby spinach, sprouts, cherry tomatoes (preferably garden fresh), hemp seeds, pine nuts or crushed macadamia nuts and thinly sliced onion and mushroom.
Dense, rich, perfectly textured, and cute to boot! These truffles will definitely satisfy that sweet tooth and leave you feeling energized and alive. Raw honey is rich in enzymes, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and carbohydrates to give you a boost of energy and goes so well with the rich earthy tones of almond butter. Coconut flour is an amazing raw product that gives a lightness to recipes such as these truffles, and a great coconut flavor without any added fat. Flax is of course incredibly rich in omega 3 fatty acid and can be ground fresh in a coffee grinder or high speed blender. This recipe calls for carob powder for rolling as the finishing touch but chocolate (raw cacao) powder can be substituted if you're feeling especially decadent.

Sheleana from Young & Raw says "I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, making raw food is easy! Contrary to the popular belief that raw food takes so much time to prepare, it can actually save you time and clean up! Yes, this bread won’t be ready for 5-7 hours, but you don’t start at the dehydrator the entire time, you place the trays in, turn it on and flip them once in between. No big deal, and then you get amazing, soft and chewy flat bread."
Raw granola is one of the first dishes that many raw foodists try to make at home. It makes sense: granola is a crowd pleaser, and the raw versions don’t tend to taste all that different from the cooked ones, so it’s a great transition food.
These are best paired with your favorite cup of hot tea, or even some delicious yogurt.
Karolina claims she "Must have her Granola" on her blog http://loveraw.blogspot.com, she goes and and states that Granola is great, because you can throw together pretty much what you have in the kitchen and use the granola to snack on, form them into bars, eat them with almond milk or as a topping on a cake. You can keep some in your purse for those moments when you need to fuel yourself when you're out. Look in your cupboards, jars and drawers. And bring your biggest bowl and start to create your own mix!!
The recipe is extremely simple, as per my own taste, so feel free to embellish and flavor it as you wish. Garlic and cilantro would be nice to through in the “dough”; so would lemon, cinnamon, coriander, or dates.
This is a thin bread that is rather moist and firm that is great topped with spreads or as a side item to a salad.
