Marcia’s Specialty Cookies in the raw

cookies 7

My mom makes these awesome cookies that my son and I both love. They are raw and paleo. My son always wants a chocolate version, which I like too, but the regular version is what I wanted this week! They are quick and easy to make, complete in about fifteen minutes. I am all about quick and easy. Mom created this version of her raw, paleo cookies after many years of playing around with various recipes and really developing it to what she likes, but I think everyone else will like them too just like me! I asked her to make them today so I could have some for a quick snack as the week is about to start. I am sharing these with you too because I believe you will love them as well:)

Gather the following Ingredients:

Cookies 1

2 and 1/2 cups of walnuts

2/3 cups almond flour

1 tsp salt

1/3 cup flax-seed

1/3 cup dried raisins or cherries or cranberries… your preference:)

1/3 cup maple syrup

2 tsp vanilla or almond extract

1/2 tsp cinnamon… you can add more depending on your taste… I like a lot!

Throw everything in the food processor!

You can Refrigerate or Dehydrate, either way is fine. If you are refrigerating place mixture in a baking dish, press down, cover and put in refrigerator for several hours.

Mom has a dehydrator so she places on her screen, puts dehydrator on @110 degrees and dehydrates for 6 hours.

The end result is the same… delicious!
