Recipe Directions

Lets start by saying these aren’t TOTALLY exact measurements; Alex made these twice so it’s really close. He will make more in a week or two and will check the measurements then. If there are any differences I will update the recipe and post that it changed in the food prep forum.

HERE WE GO! – Soak the walnuts and pecans about 4 hours, drain and rinse, then draw off excess moisture with a towel. Dry in dehydrator at 105 for about 2 hours (give or take) until dry. In a food processor combine walnuts, dates, cacao, and phenomenol powder and blend while adding little bits of water and scraping sides until you have a consistency of cookie dough. Transfer food processed mixture to a big bowl. Next, roughly chop the pecans in food processor by pulsing until you have little chunks (these are key to the cookie for crunch!). Add to bowl. Knead pecans pieces, coconut shreds, goji berries, and honey (you can use agave but we haven’t tried it that way) into dough. Next heat up a pot of water on medium heat and hold a glass measuring cup or glass jar with coconut butter in the hot water. Stir the coconut butter constantly and monitor the temperature with a thermometer till there are no more chunks and the butter looks like a thick icing. Add the melted butter to the bowl of dough – knead in until everything is saturated with the butter (several minutes – this will keep the shape of the cookies after cooled). Now start forming cookies! Put cookies between sheets of wax paper and refrigerate till firm (maybe 2 hours?). Eat and have your mind blown. Alex makes a fine cookie and now you have too!

Sid23's Thoughts

Amazing! That’s a brief description of my boyfriend’s cookies. These are in the top 3 cookies I have had in my ENTIRE life (SAD included) and have all kinds of fabulous, nutritious ingredients too! (no lard, flour, or crisco in these bad-boys!) The goji berries have a texture like little bits of toffee! They are chewy and crunchy at the same time. Just try them…you WILL be rocked.

Greenghost... my health food store didn't carry it either... until i asked! Now they carry it but i have to get there and get it before everyone buys it up! The other flavors of the Artisana stuff stays on the shelf but the coconut butter sells out quickly and it is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo worth it! Seriously, even when i'm craving some coconut, i just take a little taste of this on a spoon and it's all good :) I would ask your health food store if they would consider purchasing this for you. Hope that helps :)

Greenhost - If you try them with coconut oil, I would suggest using only enough to lightly coat since it won't add to the flavor and will only be a binding agent. Sorry your stores are bummers. If you ever do splurge on something online, try the butter. We used a lot of it on cookies, but it's really good off the spoon too. Is that absinthe in your pic?

might try these with coconut oil (and the acai powder) because I can never ever ever ever seem to get the elusive Coconut BUTTER anywhere at the local health food stores. (I know that some people are fortunate and don't have this problem)

And I know that many people order items online, but I just can't afford to pay exorbitant shipping costs. Sorry, please pardon me - just venting a bit of frustration at no one in particular.

The recipe looks fabulous btw.....

Oh, you will be!

carrie- I don't think the the Phenomenol powder is important. He just used it because he got it for free from someone at his work and it's supposed to be good for you. I just tasted the powder with my finger and it's tart, and the cookies don't taste tart, so I don't think it will affect the overall flavor. And they look dehydrated cause of the melty butter-smooshed in trick! (of course after they've been in the fridge a bit). Oh, they should be stored in the fridge too.

Wow - these look dehydrated! Do you think the Phenomenol powder is essential?
