Cacao Walnut Cookies

I was going to write “cookies” and leave it at that. Seriously, do we need any more words? Cookies have played a large part in many people’s lives. I recently asked some friends what their favorite cookie memory was. The stories that came back were great. Everyone had a very vivid memory involving cookies and family. My favorite story involved a little boy that decided to run away from home. His sister and mother started baking cookies. He didn’t make it past the porch before the smell hit him and his adventure was averted.




We have a deep psychological connection to certain foods. Those foods are usually the most difficult to eliminate as we are on our journey to better health. So how do we deal with those cravings?

Eating a raw food diet doesn’t mean having to give up the foods that we love. With a little creativity and know how, recipes can be converted and cravings fulfilled in a much healthier way! These wonderful cookies are made from almond flour. (Ground up almonds) with a little cacao and wonderful healthy walnuts. A great recipe to add to your raw food collection. Enjoy!

      You will need some kind of fat for texture and moisture.

    Susan–I am new to raw (2 months now!) and have been following your blog for at least a month or so as soon as I found it. Your recipes are really just what I’ve been looking for. I’ve tried some recipes online and in one book I bought to get me started, and some have been just awful, leaving me disappointed and discouraged. But I have not given up and once I found your site, I knew I’d hit paydirt!

    I just made the dough for these cookies, and could barely keep from nibbling on it. I don’t have a dehydrator, but I have a convection oven with a 100-degree bread proofing temperature and I’m just starting to experiment with using that as a dehydrator. I tried it with kale chips and it worked great. Anyway, thanks so much for your creative recipes that are also delicious. Can’t wait to try these cookies once they’re done!

      I wrote this recipe a while back…just waiting for the right time to put it up. Yours look tasty too! I choose to use cacao instead of coco because it is raw. Same with the agave vs Maple Syrup!
