3 cups rolled oats
2 cups almond butter
3/4 cup honey
Mix almond butter and honey together then add oats. Form into balls and set dates aside. Pulverize more oats in a food processor until powdery. (You can add then add for flavoring: carob powder, cinnamon, vanilla, ginger, or lemon) Roll balls in powder. Refrigerate for a while before eating. Sometimes I add good quality chocolate chips to these as I’m not a huge fan of carob.
1 cup raw almonds
1 cup very soft, pitted dates
1/2 cup finely shredded banana squash
1/2 cup shredded coconut
more shredded coconut for rolling
splash olive oil
1-2 tablespoons nutmeg
Put almonds in food processor and process to very fine pieces. Add dates, a little at a time. Add splash of olive oil, a little salt and a little vanilla. The mixture will look like very coarse meal at first, and then all of a sudden it will come together in one big ball. Take the big ball out of the food processor and, using your hands, mix in the shredded squash, the nutmeg and the shredded coconut until it is all mixed in. Taste and add more coconut or nutmeg if desired. Roll the mixture into small balls, and roll in shredded coconut to cover. Place on a plate in a single layer and chill in the freezer until firm. After they are firm, you can put them in a container.
2 cups almonds, soaked, blanched
2 cups sunflower seeds, soaked and rinsed
1/2 cup sesame seeds, soaked
1 cup dates
1/2 cup dried apricots, soaked
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon cardamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups pecans, soaked, chopped
Process almonds, sunflower seeds, apricots, and dates through the champion juicer with the solid plate to form paste. Add spices and vanilla and mix well. Using a food processor with the “S” blade, chop pecans. Form dough into small balls and roll in the chopped pecans. Place on a dehydrator tray with a teflex sheet and form into a small, round cookie. Place cookies close together on the sheets. Dehydrate at 105 degrees for 4 hours, turn cookies over and remove teflex sheet. Continue dehydrating until desired moisture is obtained, approximately 3-5 hours.
