Author Notes: I love revising old time favorites and making them healthy and delicious. This cookie, made with no grains and no refined sugars or fats, is an example of that. The base is walnuts, dates, and eggs and is great for gluten free or paleo living, or just plain healthier eating! —Sarah
Makes: 1 dozen
cup walnuts or pecans
teaspoon baking soda
ounces dark chocolate chips
- Blend dates and walnuts in a food processor until finely ground. (It might start to form a paste, but conversely, don’t worry if it’s a little chunky.)
- Add egg, vanilla, salt and soda and blend to combine.
- Fold in chocolate chips.
- Spoon onto parchment covered cookie sheets.
- Bake at 350 for 9-11 minutes. You want them to just turn golden and yet still be soft in the middle. Let cool before serving.
