Almond Chocolate Goodness Cookies

I love to make all kinds of raw cookies and goodies during the holidays. Here’s just one of many I wanted to share. Enjoy!


Ingredients:
1 cup raw oats
1 cup raw almond meal
¾ cup raw hazelnuts
1 T raw vanilla bean powder
¼ cup raw cacao powder
¼ cup raw carob powder
3 T raw mesquite powder
½ T pink Himalayan salt
2 tsp ground cinnamon
3 T raw almond butter
½ T organic non-alcoholic vanilla extract
¼ cup agave nectar
1 ½ cup pitted packed dates
3 T raw coconut butter
3 T dried shredded coconut

Preparation:
Combine all dry ingredients together in a food processor (except coconut). Mix well until crumbly and flour like. Add dates, vanilla, and butters, and agave. Mix well. Add shredded coconut and combine until dough like. Make cookies shapes and store in the refrigerator. This is a great snack cookie by itself and used as an ice cream sandwich.

Serving Suggestions:
I made some raw vanilla and chocolate ice cream, and raw chocolate sauce adapting recipes I found in Sarma Melngailis’ recipe book,Living Raw Food, and made this delicious ice cream sandwich using my cookies! How sweet it is!
