Almost Oatmeal Raisin Paleo Cookies

8 10 2009

This is my version of the Son of Grok’s Caveman Cookies.

You will need:

1/2 cup pitted dates that you chop into chunks

3/4 cup almonds

1/4 cup macadamia nuts

1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut

1 teaspoon coconut oil

1 Egg

1/2 cup raisins

1/2 tsp cinnamon

 

How to prepare:

Put nuts, dates, coconut, oil, and cinnamon in the food processor with the S blade on it.  Pulse until nuts and dates are broken down and it resembles loose crumbs.

Pour into mixing bowl and add in egg and raisins.  Use your hands to mix together.

Use an ice cream scoop to get uniformly sized cookies.  Form into patties like you would burger meat.  You should be able to make about 6-8 cookies.

Put on ungreased baking sheet into an oven that you have heated to 350.  Space evenly on the cookie sheet.

  Bake for about 30 minutes.  You will know they are done when they look golden brown and delicious.

Cool on a wire rack and enjoy!
