Recipe Directions

Combine dates, almond butter, honey/maple syrup, coconut butter/olive oil, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamon and sea salt in a food processor, until smooth. Then add the coconut and process until combined. Take approx. 1-2 Tbsp of dough and press it onto a teflex sheet with the bottom of a wet drinking glass. Dehydrate for approx. 12 hours on each side, until the outsides are crunchy, and the insides are still moist.

These are amazing, and so addictive! I usually double the recipe so they will last more than a few days.

Can't wait to make these! I think 2 or 3 after a big salad would be great for "dessert", and make for a complete meal. I'd like to make these with cashew butter ... has anyone tried that yet? If so, please let us know how they turned out!

Try a different nut butter - it will still turn out fabulously.

I had about 3/4 cup of almond pulp that I added to this recipe. I'm not sure how much it changed the intended flavor, but they were a big hit and a dinner party last night The non raw foodies LOVED them - me too. They smell wonderful and taste delicious.

OMG. These are not going to make it to the dehydrator! I made half the batch plain and half with cacao powder. I also used artisana goji bliss in place of plain coconut butter. Whoa... whoa...

Making your own nut butter is very easy with a food processor. Just let it run until you see oil beginning to bead. Check your processor's manual for recommended amounts. For example, I use a 7 cup capacity Cuisinart DLC-10S and the recommended amount of nuts is up to two (2) cups. I make all my own almond butter and tahini in this machine. The almonds are very loud at first. The whole processing time is about twenty (20) minutes. You'll need to scrape the bowl down a few times, especially in the earlier stages (the nuts/seeds go through several distinct stages from flourier to doughy, before finally becoming buttery). The motor does get warm, and processing alone generates heat (friction). I've measured temperatures as high as 140-150 f when making consecutive batches. Hardcore types can break the processing time into separate sessions of less time each, refrigerating the nuts to bring the temperature back down between processing sessions.

So so good! We don't really get raw nut butters in NZ either so I just blended some almonds with a bit of water as a replacement. Worked out great.
