Raw Ginger Biscuits

As promised! Including a crap blurry photo taken with my daft mobile phone… They kinda look like tiny falafel patties. But they don’t taste like ‘em!

    1 cup raw almonds
    1 cup shredded coconut
    ¾ cup dates
    1 tsp sea salt
    roughly 1 inch chunk of fresh ginger root, grated

Process almonds and salt to a powder in a food processor. Slowly add dates, one at a time. Add coconut, and pulse processor until just combined. If you want “smoother” cookies, use desiccated coconut instead of shredded. Add ginger gradually. Taste test mix to check if desired gingery-ness has been reached. Empty contents of processor into bowl. Taking 1 tsp to 1 tbsp size chunks of dough, roll into balls then press flat into desired biscuit/cookie shape. Refrigerate to firm up. Optional: instead of refrigerating immediately, dehydrate on a low setting for several hours to achieve a drier, crispier biscuit/cookie.

Note: I wouldn’t recommend these ginger cookies for pregnancy nausea! The nut base was too rich for my sensitive tummy. Blander, flour-based ones are better until the nausea passes… and it seems to have passed for me, now. Yay!

    I made these, they were very good, and even Stu liked them! He said he had no idea that “raw food” could possibly taste that good. :) Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    Just made these. I guess you used some pretty moist dates? Medjool?

    Anyhow, I only had some fairly dry Deglet Noir dates (for reasons of economy). Had to add a (very) little water at the end to bind. So delicious it took discipline not to eat them all and confine some to the fridge. (-:
