One Year Ago Today Double Chocolate Cherry Cookies
Two Years Ago Today Green Pea Pastilla, Charred Aubergine with Charmoula
Simply pureed almonds, medjool dates and peanut butter sprinkled with coarse sea salt and ready right out of the mixer.
Raw Peanut Butter Cookies
makes 12 small cookies
1 cup raw almonds
1 cup dates
1/2 cup raw peanut butter or unsweetened, unsalted natural creamy pb
1/2 tsp almond extract
water, if necessary
coarse sea salt
Blend the almonds in a food processor for 5 minutes until they break down into flour. Add the dates and blend 2 minutes more. Add the peanut butter and extract and blend until the cookies form a dough, adding 2-4 tbl of water if necessary.
Once the cookie dough is completely formed and as smooth as you can get it, scoop out into small balls and flatten.
Sprinkle the tops with sea salt and enjoy. Once chilled, they will be more firm but I enjoy these at room temperature.
