Sweet Goodness

A few sweet recipes..

Carob walnut cookies

I tweaked this recipe from the back of the Sunspire carob chips.

1/4 cup coconut oil
1 cup Oat flour
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. ginger
1/2 cup Agave Nectar or honey
1 cup unsweetened carob chips
handful of walnut pieces
1 egg..optional

Combine all ingredients and bake for 15 minutes at 300. as you know I use organic ingredients. The coconut oil is a solid until it is heated. I like to use and encourage everyone to choose a vanilla extract that is alcohol free. The egg is optional...I do not use it any more. If I need more moisture in the dough I add a little more coconut oil.

If you like Cliff Nectar bars or Lara bars this is my version of those....

You will need a large food processor with the s blade. Soak 10 dates for around 10 minutes and then pit them and toss them into the food processor. Set the date soak water aside. Add 1/2 spoonful of Teccino Maya Herbal Coffee and some coconut flakes and nuts to taste. Pulse until blended. You will need a rubber spatula to scrape the sides and pulse again if needed adding some of the date soak water as needed. when it is mixed and not clumpy. Spoon the mixture onto parchment paper and spread it out with a rubber spatula. Leave in the refrigerator for 1 day. It will not get hard but this makes it easier to cut. Enjoy
Play with it adding flavors like cherries, orange zest, etc.
