Raw Chocolate Chip Cookies Ingredients 1⁄2 cups raw walnuts 12 dates (medjool are best) 1⁄2-3/4 tsp cinnamon 1⁄2 tsp salt 1 1⁄2 tablespoon raw coconut oil (it’s best if it’s very soft, but not liquid) tablespoons cacao nibs Directions: Place dates in food processor and mix until smooth. Add walnuts, cinnamon, salt and coconut oil and mix it all up, again until smooth. Once smooth, add cacao nibs and blend just until nibs are well distributed. After ingredients are mixed, remove from food processor by tablespoon-sized blobs and flatten into cookie-ish rounds. Refrigerate before eating. Makes approximately 15 cookies. Better Than Brownies Recipe Equipment: food processor Ingredients 1 1/2 cups walnuts, soaked at least 4 hours and rinsed very well 10 pitted dates ( Medjool dates) 1 1/4 cups cacao powder(or organic carob)for dark-choc- olate brownies or 3/4 cups cacao for normal brownies . 1 ground vanilla bean or 1 tsp vanilla powder pinch of Pink Himalayan salt Directions: Process the walnuts slightly to break them into smaller pieces. Add the remaining ingredients. Process the mixture, adding very small amounts of water if necessary, until it starts to come together. Do not over-pro- cess. You want small chunks of walnut to remain. Do not add too much water, else you won’t get a good batter. Scoop the mixture into a dish (e.g., an 8×8 baking dish) and press the mixture down firmly with the back of a heavy spoon.
