Raw Honey Cookies

Are there lessons that you have learned that other people do not understand?

In the past several years I have learned that I cannot eat a lot of sugar without consequences. I know many people say there is no connection between hyperactivity and sugar, but I know how I act and feel when I have it and when I do not. I have noticed more and more that in “organic” and “natural” products there is no junk, BUT there is a never ending amount of sugar in the products. I know that this is because in order to keep people buying the product it has to taste good and keep people wanting more. So I have had to find alternatives for the things I like without having a massive amount of things that I don’t want. I have also learned that I should not spend all day in the kitchen making it too. So here is one of my favorite recipes that is great for snacking and on the go people!

Ingredients:

16 dates

2 Tbsp. of honey

1 cup of walnuts

½ cup cashews

½ tsp. cinnamon

1 Tbsp. hemp seeds

2 Tbsp. goji berries

2 Tbsp. of shredded coconut

 

Directions:

Take the dates and honey and puree them together into a paste. Crush up the walnuts and the cashews and add them to the paste, pulse the mixture three to four times just to give a good mix. Pour the mixture into a bowl and add the cinnamon, hemp seeds, and goji berries. Mix together thoroughly and add the coconut, give a light mix. Put parchment paper on a plate or baking sheet and roll the mixture into balls; place each ball on the sheet and mash down. This recipe makes 7 medium size cookies, or 14 small ones. Cover the cookies and let stand over night; place in an air tight container and enjoy for a week!

Tips:

–Keep the mixture in ball shapes and roll it in coconut

-Add a ¼ cup of chocolate chips or cocoa nibs

-Use pecans instead of walnuts

-Use pumpkin seeds instead of walnuts and add pumpkin spice instead of cinnamon
