Coco-Macadamia Raw Cookies {sugar-free, grain-free}

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.

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon  
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • pinch of sea salt  

Directions: 

  1. In a food processor, place all of the ingredients and process until mixture becomes crumbly and then begins to stick together.
  2. 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...  :)
