Raw Fruit Cake (www.vegan-recipes.com )
    • Raw organic nuts (hazelnuts, cashews, almonds, etc)
    • Raw organic ground almond
    • Dried fruits (raisins, golden raisins, dried apricots, figs, dates, etc)
    • Fresh fruit (apricots, strawberries, bananas, etc)
    • Dollop of raw organic almond butter
    • Few drops of squeezed orange juice
    • Raw organic carob powder

"You take some..." (as starts most recipes from a 1700's Swedish cookbook by Kajsa Varg)...

Raw organic nuts, a handful each of whatever kind you prefer, I used hazelnuts, cashews and almonds. Chop them up carefully. Also I added a good handful of raw organic ground almond (bulk at supermarket).

Add dried fruits. I used raw organic raisins, golden raisins, dried apricots, 4-6 figs, 4-6 medjool dates.

Add fresh fruit. blend up two fresh apricots, a few strawberries, or a banana and add.

Add a big dollop of raw organic almond butter.

Mix it all in a big bowl with a sturdy fork. If your dried fruits are too dry to cling together, you may have to moisten the mix with a few drops of fresh squeezed orange juice.

On a piece of wax paper (kitchen parchment paper) form the mixture in the shape of a log.

Sift raw organic carob powder through a tea strainer over the log and sprinkle ground almond over it, too.

Voila! there's your Yule log (or raw vegan xmas fruit cake).

Raw Fruit & Nut Balls (Sugar Plums)

Submitted By: Rhonda Malkmus from www.hacres.com

Here’s a delicious all raw desert or snack that will satisfy your sweet tooth.

The recipe is taken from Rhonda’s Hallelujah Holiday Recipes from God’s Garden book (page 200) where it is called “Raw Sugar Plums.” Don’t know how it got the name “Sugar Plums”, because there is no sugar or plums in the recipe. But I do believe you will find this recipe yummy.


  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • ¾ cup raw pecans
  • ¾ cup raisins
  • ¾ cup dried apricots
  • ¾ cup Medjool dates
  • ¼ cup orange juice (fresh squeezed)
  • 1 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut


Pulse all ingredients in a food processor into a course meal. Add orange juice and pulse until mixture sticks together. Shape into 1-inch balls and roll in shredded coconut. Keeps covered in refrigerator for weeks – If you can resist eating them that long. ENJOY

*Organic ingredients are always recommended.
