Raw, vegan, gluten-free Raspberry Lemon Linzer Cookies! That’s right, all raw, no baking required.

This recipe is a little more advanced; if you have never worked with raw pastry, it might be difficult to know what it is supposed to look like. I love this raw cookie dough, it’s really easy to work with if you use the exact ingredients as stated in the recipe.

The raspberry jam is thickened in the dehydrator and the cookies are set in the fridge using cacao butter as a setting agent.

Using all nutritious ingredients like almonds, oats, coconut flour, coconut sugar flax, cacao butter and lemon, you could eat these for breakfast.

And yes you can make jam in the dehydrator! You don’t have to cook it for it to thicken and it’s takes no time at all. I’m always so impressed how thick and nice it comes out.

You can purchase linzer cookie cutters off amazon or find them in any baking store. They are inexpensive and really easy to use.

These cookies are perfect for the holiday season or of course good anytime of the year. Enjoy!
