Life has been a bit busy lately (I'm getting married this Saturday, eeek!). With work and wedding planning, blogging seems just as important, no? (No, probably not.)
But, when I have a raw "cookie" bite that I'm totally into right now - I must write about it.
I call these "cookies" mostly because I press the tops down with a fork in a cross-hatch pattern like a peanut butter cookie. But in all seriousness, these are a healthy dose of energy.
Pair a few with your afternoon apple or as an after-dinner treat.
Coco-Macadamia Raw Cookies
(Makes about 16 "cookies")
- 12 Medjool dates, pitted
- 1/2 cup macadamia nuts
- 1/2 cup whole almonds
- 2 tablespoons almond flour
- 2 tablespoons cacao powder (or cocoa powder)
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil
- pinch of sea salt
- In a food processor, place all of the ingredients and process until mixture becomes crumbly and then begins to stick together.
- Roll the mixture into inch-sized balls. Using a fork, press down in a cross-hatch design. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Hope everyone has a great week. Next time I write a post, I'll be married!
So, until then... :)
