Who doesn’t love cookies? In one way or another, we all have fond memories of this treat. The name cookie is derived from the Dutch word koekje which means little cake. Today, you will find all sorts of cookies all over the world. Crispy, chunky, chewy, soft, filled, candied, sweet, salty, tangy whatever type it is, there is surely one or more that you just can’t stop munching on.
This recipe is not your usual oven-baked cookies. These are raw vegan cookies made ready in the food dehydrator. Instead of flour, sugar, and fat, the cookie dough is made from almond pulp banana and coconut oil sweetened by pitted prunes and agave nectar. It is then made more delightful with shredded coconut flakes, raisins, and walnuts. Enjoy munching on these guilt-free cookies with your favorite drink.
This recipe takes about 10 minutes to make. The cookies need to dehydrate for at least 10 hours. Serves 24 cookies.
• 1 cup of wet almond pulp
• 1 banana
• 2 tbsp coconut oil
• 5 dates, pitted
• ½ cup of large flake shredded coconut
• ½ cup of raisins
• 1 tbsp agave nectar
• ½ cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
• 1/8 tsp cinnamon
Place almond pulp, banana, coconut oil and dates in a food processor.
Pulse until everything is well mashed up.
Transfer to a large mixing bowl.
Add shredded coconut, raisins, agave, walnuts, and cinnamon.
Mix all the ingredients well using a spatula or wooden spoon.
Using a cookie or ice cream scooper, place a scoop of dough on a dehydrator tray lined with a non-stick sheet.
Repeat this procedure for the rest of the dough.
Dehydrate at 105-110°F for 10 hours or more, depending on how dry you want your cookies.
Serve cookies with the freshly made almond milk.
Ideas And Tips:
Almond pulp is the by-product of making almond milk. It is what’s left in the cheesecloth or sprout bag when you stain the blended water and soaked almonds. It can be used to make nut butter or dried to make almond flour. You may use other nut pulp for this recipe.
A food dehydrator is a type of kitchen appliance which operates at low heat and air flow to remove moisture from the food. Although it was built mainly for food preservation, a lot of people have discovered more ways to use this wonderful device. You can make healthier treats at home like fruit or vegetable chips, meat jerkies, granola, crispy nuts and seeds, yogurt, tofu or like in this recipe, cookies.
If you do not want a soft center in your cookie, you can flatten out the dough before dehydrating.
You can also add cacao nibs and dried cranberries.
You can use other sweeteners to replace agave nectar like maple syrup, fruit syrup, coconut nectar or blackstrap molasses.
