Can a cookie be healing? Yup! These are so delicious... nobody will know they are flourless!
  • 1-1/2 cups raw walnuts
  • 1 cup dried, pitted dates (about 18)
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • generous ½ cup chocolate chips (I used beet-sugar sweetened carob chips)
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  2. Put the walnuts, dates, salt, baking soda, vanilla, and egg in a food processor.
  3. Process just until the mixture is combined.
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  6. Form the dough into balls (I usually get 12 or 13 balls out of this dough) and space them out on the sheet.
  7. Gently press down on each of the balls to flatten.
  8. Bake for until the edges are golden (this has taken anywhere from 12 to 18 minutes, depending on the oven I am using).
  9. Remove the cookies from the oven and place them on a rack to cool.
  10. Store the cookies in baggies in the fridge or eat them now.
  11. Enjoy!
