Recipe for a Delicious Cookie

My husband was craving Chocolate Chip Cookies the other day, so here's what I threw together.

1 Cup Sprouted/Dried Buckwheat
1 Cup Pecans Soaked/Rinsed/Dried in dehydrator
A couple of dashes of Salt (I use Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt)
1 tsp Vanilla Bean Powder (or 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract)
6 Large Medjool Dates
Water - just a few drops, if not using Vanilla Extract


Process the 1 Cup Buckwheat (Sprouted/Dried) into flour in Food Processor and set aside.
Chop the 1 Cup Pecans (Soaked/Rinsed/Dried in dehydrator) in Food Processor.

Add back in the Buckwheat, A couple of shakes of quality Salt, 1 tsp. Vanilla Bean Powder, and mix together. (NOTE: if you use Vanilla Extract instead of Vanilla Powder, wait until the end to add it)

Add 6 Large Medjool Dates (pitted) and Process until mixture Sticks together.

Add the Vanilla Extract now if you are using it, or add a few drops of water to help the dough hold together better.

Form into desired cookie shape and press Chocolate Chips (recipe coming soon) on top.

If you don't want to make your own chocolate chips, you can buy Raw Cacao Paste chop it up and add it to your dough before or after forming the cookies.

These are good as is, or dehydrated at a low temperature, or frozen.

Hope you enjoy them!
