Gingerbread Cookies

Yeah, I know. Raw? That’s what I said too. But stick with me here…

These cookies, made with mostly dates, are one of the super foods Dr. Oz recommends adding to our diets. These are packed full of antioxidants, super healthy fats, and magnesium for a great heart healthy snack for Christmas time or anytime!

And… without all the sugar, molasses and flour, you can eat as many as you want without feeling guilty! Gluten free, grain free and vegan.

Oh boy! These are super yummilicious and really, they wouldn’t last long enough to bake anyway. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

1 full pkg- dates (6 oz. bag)

3/4 cup – raw almonds

1/4 tsp.  – ground ginger

1/4 tsp. – cinnamon

1/8 tsp. – nutmeg

1/16th tsp. – ground cloves

pinch – salt

1/2 tsp. – 1/4 tsp. vanilla

Directions: 

Put all the ingredients into a food processor and pulse until you’re able to form the gingerbread mixture into patties, balls, stars, Christmas trees, gingerbread men, etc.

Merry Christmas and a Healthy, Happy New Year!
