Raw Diet Recipe
These Paleo Cookies keep almost forever in a sealed container. Over time, they become softer and chewier, perfect for dunking in your tea or coffee.
2 cups raw honey
2 cups ground walnuts
4 cups almond flour
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 cup dried fruit, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease cookie sheets, or line with parchment paper.
Warm honey in a saucepan. Let mixture cool slightly.
Sift together flour and spices. Place honey in mixing bowl; gradually add flour mixture and stir until well blended. Stir in dried chopped fruit.
Roll dough about 1/4-inch thick on a floured board; cut into squares and rectangles with a pastry wheel or sharp knife. If you prefer, you can also make drop cookies, dropping the dough by teaspoonful. Bake ten minutes.
Yield: 4 dozen.

3 cups rolled oats
2 cups almond butter
3/4 cup honey
1-1/2 cup raisins

Form into balls and set aside. Pulverize more oats in a food processor until powdery.
Note: You can add carob powder and cinnamon to the oat powder if desired.
