It is DAY 12 of “Raw Food Recipes with Excalibur” and the gorgeous Raw Judita joins our Dehydrator Giveaway Celebration. This stunning red-haired beauty has brought a plate of her delicious raw vegan orange and cranberry scones to the party, and you do not want to miss these delectable treats!

Judita says, “Orange cranberry is one of my absolute favourite flavour combinations and unbelievably delicious in this moist and chewy oatmeal based recipe. I enjoy these for breakfast as well as for dessert, paired with a warm cup of herbal tea.” I say, “These scones are scrumptious, and take them any way you can get them! YUMMO!”

Just a note about the oats: oats have long been known for being an excellent source of soluble fiber which is great for the digestion, balancing blood sugar and for lowering cholesterol. They are also high in protein; rich in immune boosting minerals like selenium and zinc; and a great source of bone-building calcium, phosphorus and magnesium. Commercial oats can contain small amount of gluten due to cross contamination. For those of you with a gluten sensitivity, be sure to purchase gluten free oats, or order certified gluten free oat groats from

These scones are just one of the many RAWMAZING recipes “Raw Judita” has in her repertoire. Raw Judita likes to think of herself as “Healthy Judita.” After suffering from depression, bad moods, bad skin, arthritis, and chronic symptoms, Judiita regained her health and vitality with a raw plant-based diet, and enjoyed a clarity and creativity she had not previously experienced.

Judita then went on to become a Certified Holistic Health Counselor from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and a Raw Food Chef and Nutrition Educator from the Living Light Culinary Institute. She now gives lectures and coaches clients all around the country to inspire other people to become healthier, more energetic, radiant, and vibrant with the power of live whole foods.

Judita also teaches customized nutritional healing classes for private groups at spas and medical centres, corporate locations, birthdays, bachelorette parties, children’s services, and other special events. She is also available for personal chef services. You can contact her through her website.

Judita, along with Penni Shelton from Raw Food Rehab and Day 7 of this event, was a proud Wellness Warrior for Cleanse America, supporting people from all over the world in an amazing 10 day raw food group transformational program.

Judita’s first book, GOING RAW: EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO START YOUR OWN RAW FOOD DIET & LIFESTYLE REVOLUTION AT HOME is a fantastic introduction to raw vegan foods. It contains 100 recipes with full colour photos with easy, step-by-step instructions. If that isn’t enough to wet your appetite, there is a fantastic DVD included, where Judita shows you some basic raw food skills to get you started with the recipes. GOING RAW is available through Amazon, and at most major bookstores throughout the US, Canada and UK.

Judita has almost finished her second book, RAW & SIMPLE, where she features 100 fresh new recipes, as well as the most up-to-date nutritional information on eating raw. This fabulous book will be released in March 2013. If that’s not enough, Judita is also developing a raw food TV show. So, be on the lookout for that!

Before Judita became passionate about holistic health, she was an actress, model, voice over artist, and singer/songwriter. She played and toured for seven years with her band, The Halo Friendlies, and has been working on new material for her current band, The Scouts of Saint Sebastian. Those of you gamers might recognize Judita as the voice of Judy Nails from the Guitar Hero video game series.

Yes, all this begs the question, is there anything this lovely lady can’t do?
Judita, thankyou for participating in this event. You are AMAZING…

Raw Judita’s Orange Cranberry Scones

  • 2 cups oat groats (1 1/2 cups dry), soaked 8-12 hours or overnight
  • 3/4 cup pitted and chopped soft medjool dates
  • 1 tsp grated orange zest or 1 tsp orange extract
  • 1/2 cup cranberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  1. Place the well drained oats into your food processor and process until the oats break down and begin to stick. Scrape down sides with a spatula if needed.
  2. Add the dates and orange zest, and process until the mixture balls up into a dough.
  3. Transfer to a mixing bowl and combine the cranberries and walnuts by hand.
  4. Place mixture in the centre of a non stick surface and press the dough into a  3/4” to 1” high round shape. A rolling pin is helpful for this.

  8. Makes 8 servings
  9. Soak time: 8-12 hours

Tip: How to prevent sticking when chopping dried fruits

Chopping dried fruits such as dates, apricots and raisins can be a sticky mess. The fruit sticks to the knife, the board and your fingers. To get yourself out of a sticky situation just rub a tiny drop of cold pressed oil onto the blade of your knife. The fruit will slide right off after cutting.

I agree the orange cranberry combo is delicious, can’t wait to try these.  They may only last as long as the Prep time - 10 minutes!


LOL! These are SO easy and SO good.
I can’t wait to hear what you think :)

Judita is so gorgeous, wonderfully gracious and incredibly creative - a true culinary artist. Everything I’ve made from Going Raw has been epic, and I’m really looking forward to making these beautiful scones, as well! 

Penni Shelton


Yes! I agree. Her recipes are sensational!

These can’t possibly be that easy and look that delicious- I am salivating and dying to make these. Yummy!!!!


They are! Can’t wait to hear what you think. I LOVE this recipe :)

I made these a few days ago and they were really tasty and easy to put together. Thanks for this idea.


Oh great! I am so glad you enjoyed these. Judita is AMAZING.

What do you do if you don’t have a dehydrator?


I imagine you could make these on the very lowest warm setting of your oven. That typically works for most raw cookie recipes.

Has anyone tried making these in the oven? If so please advise how long you left them in for and the result. Thanks

Karen, I haven’t tried this, but you could try using the lowest setting of your oven. You will need to keep checking them every half hour.

Hi Dear!
This one looks so crispy and yummy!
Happy New year too!
Keep posting delicious recipes. I really love visiting your site. There are lots of Healthy recipes.

Thank you for always sharing.


Thanks Nancy. Yes, Judita is amazing, and this recipe is a winner. Enjoy :)
