Gingerbread Cookies

 

Method:


Pit and chop medjool dates into smaller pieces.

In a food processor place all ingredients except almond meal and process into a nice sticky paste.

Transfer to a large bowl combining processed ingredients with ground almonds and knead into a nice dough. If it is a little too sticky to work with add a little more almond meal.

Roll mixture out onto a teflex sheet about 3-4 mm thick. Using a cookie cutter, cut into your favorite shapes.

Option 1 - Dehydrate: These cookies can be dehydrated at 46 degrees Celsius for 12 hours, or until cookies have become crisp around the edges and firm.

Option 2 - Oven: Place cookies on an oven tray, cook on lowest setting with door ajar for 1-2 hours until crisp.

Option 3 - Raw: These cookies can be served raw. 

 Sprinkle with coconut before serving.
