Today was Day #7 of Chocolate and Tout Sweetener Theme Week, and Day #2 of Chocolate and Sea Salt Theme Week. "Tout Sweetener" is a term I invented to describe chocolates that incorporate sweeteners other than white cane sugar -- including honey, maple sugar/syrup, artificial sweeteners, brown sugar, and many others.

Today's artisan made raw cookies from Raw Decadence (Redwood City, CA) were made from Organic almonds and unsweetened coconut, cranberries and raw cacao nibs. In addition to the cranberry and the coconut, these small, dense, biscotti-shaped raw cookies were also sweetened with Organic blue agave and stevia (from the sweet leaves of a small green plant/herb originally from Paraguay). In addition, they were seasoned with a barely detectable hint of sea salt.
