I’ve really been into hazelnuts lately. These cookies are so yummy. They remind me of PB&J cookies, but better. You don’t need to refrigerate these either – unless you want to. You can roll them into balls, or make flat disk-shaped cookies – you decide.
1 cup raw almonds
1/2 cup raw hazelnuts
1/3 cup raw oats
1 1/2 cups raisins
1/2 cup pitted dates (well packed)
1 tsp pink Himalayan salt
1 tsp raw vanilla bean powder (you can substitute with scraped vanilla beans or organic non-alcoholic vanilla extract)
1T dried organic shredded coconut
1T raw carob powder
Combine almonds, hazelnuts, oats, and raisins into a food processor. Process until crumbly (not fine crumbly and not oily). Add pitted dates. Repeat processing until well combine and crumbly (a bit sticky looking, but not too much). Add remaining ingredients and process briefly to combine well. Remove crumbs mixture and place in a bowl. Using a cookie scoop or big spoon, scoop out enough and form into a smooth ball. Repeat with remaining mixture until all is used. Place in an air-tight container and store in your cupboard or in the fridge. This makes a great snack, and a great dessert! Yummo!
