1 cup buckwheaties (buckwheat soaked for 6 hours, rinsed, and dried in the dehydrator until crunchy)
½ cup walnuts or other nuts you like (we use soaked/dehydrated nuts to remove phytates and make them more digestible)
6 Medjool dates
Water (if needed, add a little at a time as needed)
1 tablespoon Almond butter or other nut butter
Pinch of salt or according to your taste
Other ingredients vary, depending on what flavor cookies you want.
1. Process the buckwheaties in the food processor until mealy.
2. Add the nuts and process briefly to chop them.
3. Add the dates and process until doughy.
4. Add a pinch of salt, if you want it. Process briefly to distribute.
5. Add a little water (or vanilla extract, if you use it), if needed, to make the dough hold together better.
6. Then add the nut butter and finish processing the dough (You can leave these as is and have “Crunchy Nut Butter Cookies,” use one of the variations, or make up your own variation and let everyone know about it so we can try it too!).
7. Form into balls, squishing the dough together well so it will hold its shape and flatten into a cookie shape.
8. Serve with nut milk or your favorite beverage! Enjoy!
Cookies that actually crunch!
For Sweetpea & everyone else that misses that satisfying crunch!
I’m allergic to grains myself, but I make these for my husband and kids occasionally. They love them!
“Chocolate Chip Cookies”--Process in some raw cacao nibs and raisins (my family’s favorite). I’ve also made these using Chocolate Rocks that I got from Natural Zing.
“Raisin Spice Cookies”–-Add some cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger (or your favorite spice), and raisins.
(I’ve also made these using GORAW’s Live “Granola”)
