This no-bake cookie is nutritious and so tasty!
When my son Don was a toddler I loved making him raw ball treats consisting of dates, seeds, seed butter, and probably other ingredients that I can't remember, lol. What I loved about them was that they were so simple to make, nutritious, and last for a long time. These days my Boop (Don) mainly chooses his own treats and lets just say, I am so grateful I was able to give him healthy choices as a child, because some of his choices make me want to faint, but that's life, lol, I luv my Boop:-)
Place the almonds and walnuts in a food processor fitted with the S blade and process until coarsely chopped. Add the dates and almond extract and process until the mixture begins to stick together. Make sure to not overprocess; you should still see chunks of almonds and walnuts. Add the dried cherries, if desired, and pulse briefly, just to mix.
Remove from the Food processor and place your lovely mixture into a small mixing bowl. Proceed to place some of the mixture into your hand depending upon what size you would like your cookie to be and squeeze firmly until it sticks together. Roll each amount into a ball and flatten slightly to make a cookie, and place on a plate. Now, you simply place your lovely cookies into the freezer or refrigerator for atleast 1 hour. Personally, I love to store them into the freezer. Almond cookies will keep for up to one month in the refrigerator or three months in the freezer.
Remember to have fun Divinez, be creative and enjoy~
I decided to make the applesauce with my food processor to add to the ingredients for the crumble.
Let me see you make this recipe or your own version!
