110% Awesome Cookies

Paleo, Gluten Free, Dairy Free 110% AWESOME Cookies!

I’ve been struggling to find a decent recipe for a “healthier” cookie. Usually modifications to recipes in the attempt of making them a little “healthier” don’t turn out very well. But this time I’ve hit the jackpot! These cookies are not only ridiculously delicious, but they are decent in protein, fibre, vitamin E, vitamin C, iron, magnesium and potassium! Needless to say, they did not last long at our house!

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup Dates

  • 1 Cup Ras Cashews

  • 1 Large Egg

  • 1/4 Cup Almond Flour

  • 1/4 Tsp Baking Soda

  • 1/4 Tsp Salt

  • 1/4 Cup Chopped Almonds

  • 1/4 Cup Chopped Macadamia Nuts

  • 1/4 Cup Unsweetened Coconut Flakes

  • *Optional 1/4 Cup 70% Dark Chocolate Chunks

  2. Preheat oven to 350 F.

  3. Chop almonds and macadamia nuts and set aside in medium sized bowl.

  4. Remove dates and cashews from water, shake dry and pulse in bender till chopped/mixed well.

  6. Add mixture into bowl with almonds and macadamia nuts, add coconut flakes mix well.

  7. *Optional add in - add dark chocolate chunks to mixture (our little guy does not like chocolate, so I divided the mixture into two and then added chocolate to half).

  8. Place table spoon sized portions onto parchment lined baking sheet, about 1 inch apart. Gently pat down, these cookies do not spread at all.

  9. Bake fore 11-12 minutes. Removing from oven, letting the cookies stay on the baking sheet for 2 minutes before transferring.
