Salted Peanut Butter Cookies

Adapted from: A House In The Hills

raw vegan PB cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of pitted dates (roughly chopped)
  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter (just peanuts)
  • Slightly less than 1 cup of almond flour (or 1 cup of almonds ground into flour)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • coarse sea salt

Directions

  1. Combine all ingredients (except for the salt) in a food processor and blend until a dough like consistency is formed. This is take about 5 minutes. It is okay if you still have a few larger pieces of dates. I would not recommend attempting this recipe if you do not have  a food processor or an extremely high power blender.
  2. Remove dough and roll into 12 balls. Flatten each one (with a fork if you want the traditional PB cookie look)
  3. Sprinkle generously with coarse sea salt.
  4. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  5. Enjoy.

These cookies are best stored in the fridge.

Happy (heat-less) baking!
