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!

    Great recipe! After I tasted the completed dough, I decided to add 1/4 t of Himalayan salt, which gave it that classic cookie taste. That may not be to everyone’s liking, however.

    I’m trying it with coconut flour since I can’t eat nuts.

    My son has sever sensitivities to almonds. What could I substitute for the almond flour?

    I have GOT to buy a dehydrator. Why why why don’t I have one yet???

    thanks for the idea Susan. I combined this recipe with a few others to make some raw zucchini fudge brownies.

    wondering if coconut oil will work as a replacement for the olive oil – or maybe a blend? thanks!

      You can try it…I wanted to do something different with this recipe since I use coconut oil so often. I like to mix things up a little. 🙂

    Doesn’t the oil get in the way of dehydration? how does the moisture escape the things that are coated with oil? I noticed some items I made with coconut butter/oil and they didn’t harden after 2 days of dehydration at 118%? ! Love you recipes.

      First of all, they are not “coated” in oil. 🙂 They dehydrate just fine in the time specified. When I create a recipe, I make it to work. Which recipes didn’t work for you, and how hard are you trying to get them? I like to try to recreate a texture that has a “crumb” thus some moisture.
