Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup creamy raw almond butter
  • 1/2 Cup hemp hearts
  • 1/2 Cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 8 dates, raw and pitted
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 Cup cacao nibs or chopped dark chocolate
  • 1/4 Cup raw cacao powder

Directions

In a food processor or high-speed blender, pulse together almond butter, hemp hearts, coconut flakes, dates, and vanilla until a thick dough forms.

Fold in chocolate or cacao nibs.

Using a teaspoon, scoop the dough and roll into 2 bite-sized balls.

Dust with cacao powder.

Store in fridge and enjoy for up to 3 weeks.

Cookie Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Cookie Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.

Cookie Wine Pairing

Milk is more traditional with cookies than wine in the U.S., but a few cookies and a glass of sweet wine make a simple, enjoyable dessert. Sweet chenin blanc, muscat, or amontillado sherry with nut-based cookies; sauternes or sweet German wines with sugar cookies; cabernet sauvignon or cabernet franc with chocolate desserts; Italian vin santo with biscotti.
