Oh they turned out so yummy! I just kind of threw some stuff together and made my own recipe.
Wanna make them?
(organic ingredients when possible, of course)
2 cups cashews (unsoaked)
1 3/4 cup dried unsweetened coconut
3/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup lemon zest
1/4 cup coconut oil (warm it in the sun/dehydrator for a moment, makes it easier to incorporate)
1/4 cup agave
6 chopped dates
1/2 tsp celtic sea salt
Place the cashews into the food processor first and grind for about 15 sec. Then add all the other ingredients and grind until well combined (stop every once in a while and scrape down the sides).
This creates a very wet dough.
Plop into cookie shapes on teflex lined dehydrator sheets and dehydrate at 115 for 6 hours. Flip the cookies and dehydrate another 10-12 hours until desired cookie consistency.
The smell these cookies made in the house while they were "un-cooking" was amazing!
Do not scrimp on the lemon juice or the zest. What makes these cookies so yummy? The intense fresh lemon taste with the creamy cashews and hints of coconut. Get yourself one of these
Here's the sweet little plate we put them on. A thrifting find last week. The girls are in garden mode around here.
Let me know if you make these cookies!! A friend asked me about using orange juice/zest. I may try a variation using soaked almonds and oranges...what do you think?
