Wholesome, Healthy Treats – Fast and Easy to Prepare

Christmas is approaching fast and so are the temptations to indulge in treats that we know are detrimental to our well-being. Below is a recipe for a healthy alternative – one of my favorite creations. Be creative and have fun experimenting with the ingredients.

BASIC RECIPE

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups walnuts
1 cup medjol dates, cut into pieces
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 Tbsp. raw cacao powder
1 Tbsp. ground flax or chia seeds
2-3 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 Tbsp. water
1/2 cup raisins or unsweetened dried cranberries

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to about 330 Fahrenheit
2. Process dates and walnuts in food processor until crumbly
3. Add all remaining ingredients except raisins (cranberries)
4. Process in food processor until all ingredients are well mixed and
stick together like “dough”
5. Add raisins and briefly pulse
6. Place dough on baking sheet lined with parchment paper; you may want
to spoon it but I prefer to use my hands and shape the cookies. You may
need to wet your hands if the dough is too sticky.
7. Bake at 330 Fahrenheit for about 12 minutes.
8. ENJOY!

Be creative and play with pecans, sunflower seeds, shredded coconuts etc.
