Raw Carrot Cranberry Scones – not so much

A raw recipe that tasted, well, like a non raw person would think raw things taste. Pretty much inedible.  Mushy, wet, dense patties.

I found the recipe in Ani Phyo’s book Ani’s Raw Food Desserts. I followed it carefully and didn’t love how it used so many appliances (juicer, blender, food processor and dehydrator), but hoped it would be worth the effort.  Sadly, the scones did not impress.

Win some, lose some, right?

In case you’re curious, scones contain apples, carrot, flax seeds, cranberries, raisins, and coconut oil.

  1. interesting. i have made her pancakes that contain flax and thought they were good but in a flaxy way. I wonder if some nut pulp and chia seeds might be a better combo.

  2. […] The texture is not a match to a cooked pancake.  It’s more like a cross between a thick piece of fruit leather and a traditional pancake.  Pretty dense, but not unappetizingly so (like the disaster scones). […]

  3. I’m not gonna lie, these look funny. But a lot of weird looking items taste amazing… but well, two out of two… um… anyway, it was fun to make I’m sure. I love trying out new recipes- whether they turn out good or not. 🙂
