Day 167 – Cacao Nib Cookies

Ever since I have arrived home from Fremantle – I have had the dehydrator going 24 /7 with a whole array of different raw foods.

Pizza bases, soaked nuts, falafels and these gorgeous cookies that already my children have begun devouring…. so much for saving them for tomorrow’s lunch 🙂

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups almonds – soaked 4 hrs

1 cup walnuts – soaked 4 hrs

1 1/2 cup dates, pitted and chopped

1/2 tsp. vanilla paste

1 cup cacao nibs

2 Tbsp. cacao powder

1 Tbsp. agave

pinch of salt

Method:

Process the nuts in a food processor until they form a crumbly texture.  Add the dates an process until combined.

Add the remaining ingredients and pulse until combined.

On a dehydrator tray, scoop ice-cream scoop fulls of mixture on to the tray.

Dehydrate for 24 hours.

Store in an airtight container – unless they all get eaten first 🙂

These will last for 1 month if kept in the fridge or you can freeze them for up to 4 months… I doubt mine will ever see a freezer 🙂

Enjoy!
