Recipe Directions

Process the Buckwheaties in the food processor until mealy.

Add the Nuts & process briefly to chop them.

Next add the Dates & process until doughy.

Add a pinch of salt, if you want it – process briefly to distribute.

Add a little water (or vanilla extract, if you use it), if needed to make the dough hold together better.

Then add the Nutbutter & finish processing the dough.

You can leave these as is & have “Crunchy Nut Butter Cookies”. Or use one of the variations below. Or make up your own variation & let everyone know about it so we can try it too!

Form into balls – squishing the dough together well so it will hold its shape & flatten into a cookie shape. Serve with Nutmilk, or your favorite beverage! ENJOY!!

VARIATIONS:

“Chocolate Chip Cookies” – Process in some Raw Cacao Nibs & 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 spices) & Raisins

(I’ve also made these using GORAW’s Live “Granola”)

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!!

elizabethh - Yes, I realize that. I don't judge them by the fact that they are not grass grains. Just the starch content. I was very allergic to the starch. It made my histamine levels go through the roof - aka - itching all over & heart racing. But now I am able to have it again, occasionally. I've been learning Buteyko Breathing Technique & it has already reduced my histamine level enough to enjoy some of the foods I had been allergic to for years. Awesome!

PapayaLove - did you use nice crunchy dry buckwheaties? I've made these lots of different ways, but they always have the nice crunch from the dried buckwheaties.

Perhaps the honey made them wetter than with dates. Just a thought.

strangely enough, buckwheat is actually a fruit, not a grain.

So, I was totally excited to try these and finally did. They are delicious! And really rich, probably because I added honey as well :) Little idea though, mine turned into a moist cookie dough more than a cookie. So I figure I will try to do each ingredient in the processor individualy and mix together by hand to keep some of the chunks in there as doing it all in the processor made it all more pasty than crunchy cookie-ish.
