ALL Honest Natural Ingredients:
1 cup Cashew Nuts
12 Pitted Large Dates
5 tablespoons Raw Honey or any natural sweetener such as Agave, Natural syrups like maple syrup will do.
1 tsp Cinnamon
A few tablespoon of Cacao powder for that chocolate factor
1 tsp Vanilla extract or vanilla pod
half a cup peanut butter
a pinch of sea salt
*Actually you can use any kind of nuts in your preference. Roasted cashew nuts was used here to make these cookies a little crunchy because we want to eat them right away. Although, if you use the roasted type, it won't pass the raw food dessert qualification situation. But go ahead. You're the cook.
If you let these cookies set for a few hours the crunchiness just don't matter anymore. These cookies become deliciously chewy. So much for being crunchy. Use the raw nuts then!
Soak the dates for a few hours until they are soft. Then drain them and you can reserve the liquid they were soaked in if you want. (You can use this liquid to get your blender started when making smoothies.)
Grind the nuts in a food processor. Add in the drained soaked dates. Pour a teaspoon of vanilla extract. Add in the, cacao powder, cinnamon, peanut butter and the preferred sweetener. Give it a pulse and whirl them in until they're all incorporated into a ball of dough.
Take the dough out of the food processor and shape them into fun shapes depending on your mood. You can shape these into hearts, rounds... anyway you like it.
Devour until they're gone!
That's it! Hope you like these raw cookies. They're really easy to make. You don't need to touch that oven.
