Healthiest Cookies

Grain free, gluten free, paleo…but still delicious. Yea, I know what you’re thinking – not possible! Delish. They are somewhere between a chocolate chip cookie, a fig newton and a brownie in taste.

Makes about 16 cookies the size of my palm


3 cups raw walnuts
2 cup dates, pitted (one and a half 8 oz boxes of Amport Foods Chopped Dates at my local Coburn’s)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 350F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. In the bowl of a food processor fitted with an “S” blade, process the dates and walnuts together until a crumbly texture is formed. Add in the salt, baking soda, vanilla, and egg and process again until the batter is relatively smooth, a little stickier than traditional cookie dough.

Add in the chocolate chips and briefly pulse, just to combine.
