From my book Raw & Simple, here's an easy and delicious raw cookie you can make in minutes.
Oatmeal Walnut Raisin Cookies Makes 20 cookies
2 cups walnuts 1 cup packed Medjool dates, pitted, (soak for 15 minutes if they are very dry) 1 cup rolled oats ½ tablespoon vanilla extract 1 teaspoon cinnamon ¼ teaspoon sea salt 1/2 cup raisins
Additional 2/3 cup chopped walnuts ¼ cup rolled oats
1. Place the walnuts into a food processor and process until it almost turns into walnut butter. 2. Add dates and process again until it becomes dough-like. 3. Add oats, vanilla, cinnamon and sea salt and process until well incorporated and doughy. 4. Transfer mixture to a bowl and stir in raisins. 5. Take 1 heaping tablespoon of mixture at time in your hands and shape into 20 balls. If your mixture isn't sticking together sprinkle with two teaspoons of water. 6. Spread chopped walnuts and oats onto a clean surface work area. 7. Press balls into chopped walnuts and oats and shape into cookies. 8. Chill in the freezer for a chewier texture or in the refrigerator for a softer cookie.
Store in an airtight container in refrigerator or freezer for one month.
