This wholesome raw cookie is unbeatable. You can buy something similar for about $2.00 a piece or make your own for a whole lot less. You’ll need to give adequate time for the seeds and almonds to soak. This will fit nicely into your fitness habits.

Makes 12 cookies

1/3-cup whole almonds

2 tablespoons unhulled sesame seeds, soaked 2-4 hours

1-cup pitted dates

½ cup raw almond butter

¼ teaspoon coffee flavoring or 2 teaspoons inka

1/8 teaspoon sea salt

1 tablespoon raw cocoa powder or raw carob powder

½ cup vanilla protein powder

¼ cup milled flax seeds

1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

1 tablespoon unrefined extra virgin coconut oil

 Soak almonds in water so that skins can easily be rubbed off, two to three hours or overnight.

With fingertips, rub skins off almonds and chop finely-unless you prefer some bigger chunks.

In a food processor combine the dates and 1 tablespoon water; process until dates are paste-like. Add sesame seeds, almond butter, coffee extract, salt, cocoa powder, protein powder, flax seeds, cinnamon and coconut oil and process for 1 minute or until fully combined. Stir in almonds.

For each cookie, spoon a heaping tablespoon of mixture, about the size of a golf ball. Form and press into a flat cookie. Wrap in waxed paper, then freeze or refrigerate.

To eat one from the freezer, wait a couple of minutes and it will be ready to enjoy.
