We love raw treats! In addition to being delicious, raw (or no-bake) desserts might be some of the healthiest and most planet-friendly options. We adore raw desserts because they feature a short list of whole, unprocessed ingredients like nuts, seeds, and dried fruit. They get their sweetness from dried fruit, malt or maple sirup, and other natural sweeteners. No refined or artificial ingredients here! They are easy to make and don't involve baking!! Great for the warmth of spring or summer when you don't feel like turning the oven on! And finally, most raw desserts are gluten-free and vegan - great for your well-being!
