Author Notes

I am terrible at baking because it's way precise...I much prefer savory because it's all to taste and is more forgiving. The best thing about these cookies found here (http://www.ahouseinthehills.com/ahouseinthehills/2013/1/14/raw-vegan-salted-peanut-butter-cookies.html) are that they involve 5 ingredients & can be tweaked and adjusted if you run out of one ingredient or want to make more or less. Plus they take about 5 minutes to make and are raw & vegan & salty. —rachel waters

What You'll Need
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup creamy, unsalted peanut butter
  • 1.25 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup pitted medjool dates
  • sea salt
  1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor and add more peanut butter if it is not combining. Form into balls, press down with a fork and sprinkle generously with sea salt. Refrigerate; they taste and stay better cold!

I finally got around to making these on a whim, and wow — so simple, delicious, and wholesome! In lieu of raw almonds, I incorporated toasted walnuts since that’s what I happened to have on hand and am pleased with the result. I kept them in the freezer (considering it’s the height of summer) and love how they melt in your mouth. Would make a lovely base for ice cream sandwiches and other frozen delights! Thank you, Rachel!
