CCC's: Coconut, Chocolate, Cherry Cookies
Enjoy these dehydrated or not! They looked cooked!
*all ingredients raw and organic*
1/2 C almonds
1/2 C walnuts
1 T cacao, ground
1 T carob, ground
1/8 cup coconut butter or less
1 1/2 T agave
5 T shredded coconut, just enough to see specks in the dough
15 large dried cherries
Make butter out of nuts, do not over mix releasing the natural oils, add other ingredients, except cherries. It should look like ground nut meat with white coconut specks. Form into balls the size of a quarter. Press one dried cherry in the center and form a beautiful cookie. Eat as is or dehydrate over night (104-115) or longer until dry. Cookie may be oily, so dehydrating will help, you can use less coconut butter or just grind/chop nuts until just before they form a smooth nut butter. Let me know how yours turns out!
