Carob Walnut Cookies

by Ani Phyo

Makes 8 to 12 Cookies

Sweet raisins, malty carob, and rich walnuts are ground together to make a delicious, dark, sweet cookie. Packed with antioxidants, vitamin E, and EFAs, these cookies keep you trim and your skin radiant.

1 cup raisins
3/4 cup raw walnuts
1⁄4 cup raw carob powder
1 teaspoon mesquite powder (optional)
1⁄8 teaspoon sea salt

Combine the raisins, walnuts, carob powder, mesquite powder if using, and salt in the
food processor. Process until the dough begins sticking together.

Press the dough into 2-inch cookie cutters placed on a sheet tray lined with parchment paper. Shoot for a thickness of 1⁄3- to 1⁄2-inch. Or, make 1- to 1 1⁄2-inch balls and flatten.

Place the cookies in the freezer to chill and firm up for 30 minutes or more before serving or transferring to the fridge for serving later.

Will keep for many weeks in the fridge or freezer. Thaw 5 minutes before eating.
