ingredients: (makes 12 cookies)
1/2 cup medjool dates
2 cups almond flour or finely ground almonds
1/4 cup of almond butter or macadamia nut butter – you could use ground macadamia nuts, butter makes it chewier.
1 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil
4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/8 cup honey
Preheat oven to 325 degrees
Remove pits from the dates and send them through the food processor until they form a paste
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl (you can use a mixer if you have one) – make sure dates are evenly distributed
Using a Tablespoon, scoop the dough onto your cookie sheet to form cookies. I tried to use a Gingerbread Man shape, but the dough was too gooey to maintain the form.
Bake for ~10 minutes or until cooked. Remove and cool.
Try not to eat them all at once
