Raw Lemon Cookies

Yuck, another evening of overeating and feeling terrible. I don’t know why I did it to myself and I believe I’m fine as long as I don’t eat too much sugar. I makes me shaky and keeps me up at night.

I had promised Bella to make cookies today and I did but we made raw cookies with agave nectar so I won’t have another sugar roller coaster. The cookies are so delightful with a cup of herbal tea on grey morning like the one we’re having here. The recipe for the cookies is adapted from this recipe.

Happy Sunday everyone!!!

1 cup almond meal
3/4 cup shredded and dried coconut
Juice from one small lemon
1 tbs maple syrup (more if “dough” seems dry)
1/2 vanilla bean, split open and seeds scraped out and used

Combine everything in a food processor and blend until it’s a dough call. With wet hands, roll dough to small balls. Flatten slightly and dehydrate in F105 until dry on outside and chewy on inside.
