Looking for a holiday cookie recipe [3] that is easy-to-make, healthy and delicious? Look no further! This fabulous almond cranberry cookie recipe is vegan [4], raw, with no added sugar, fat or anything bad — and it is a cinch to make, since it doesn’t require any baking. All you need is a food processor, some dried fruit [5], and nuts [5]. Making quickie raw cookies [6] is a fun project to engage in with kids, and these cookies are so healthy, you won’t worry about how many your kids eat (hint: they will eat a lot). With just pure fruit and nuts as ingredients they pack a mean anti-oxidant [7] punch, as well as adding healthful nut oils to your diet. Best of all, they taste delicious [8] and won’t make you feel sick if you eat too many! Read on for the recipe…
