½ cup almonds (pureed into almond butter)
1 cup millet (soaked with water saved aside)
2 cups oat groats (grounded into flour)
2 cups unsweetened fine dehydrated coconut (or 2 cups more oat flour)
½ teaspoon cinnamon (ground)
½ teaspoon nutmeg (ground)
½ teaspoon vanilla or a vanilla bean (scraped)
¼ teaspoon salt (optional)
½ cup agave nectar (or depending on taste, up to a cup)
1. Grind the almonds into almond butter, or use commercial almond butter.
2. Let the millet drain (you don’t want dripping millet) and process in the food processor until pasty.
3. Add 2 cups of oat flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, agave nectar, and vanilla and optional salt and blend until smooth. Add a little water saved from millet if the mixture is too thick (it should be the consistency of thin crepe batter).
4. Add coconut or oat flour to thicken mixture to the consistency of cookie dough, and process until smooth (I like a little bit of coconut for tooth feel, but you may want to make it completely smooth).
5. Place a little cinnamon on your palms and roll the cookies into balls, then flatten into cookies. Dip the tops into more cinnamon (optional, but great).
Also optional but great: dehydrate the cookies till the desired firmness/crispness/warmness is reached. Serve with a nice mug of something warm.
This cookie tastes strongly like the snickerdoodles that are a holiday favorite around Pennsylvania and utilizes that often ignored grain called millet. A soft, nutmeg-scented cookie is surrounded by a burst of cinnamon. Feel free to dehydrate these a little for a warm treat.
For those with a nut allergy, or just sick of or avoiding nuts, feel free to use an additional 1/2 cup of millet.
Remember, every change to a recipe changes the taste of a recipe, so I suggest starting with the original and tweaking it to your tastes!
