  • 1 cup super fine almond flour
  • 1/2 cup medjool dates pitted and raisons mixed. Soak in water for 30 minutes and drain. 
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • A pinch of sea salt or pink salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place the dates and raisons in the bowl of a food processor and puree until you have very small pieces.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients to the food processor and process until the dough comes together.*
  4. Divide the dough into 12 portions and roll each portion into a ball.
  5. Arrange the dough balls on a baking sheet, about an inch apart. Then, using the tines of a fork, press down on each ball once and then once again at a right angle, to make a crosshatch design.
  6. Place the cookies in the oven and bake for 13-14 minutes or until they turn lightly golden on the sides and the top. Remove, and let the cookies cool on the sheet.

*If you don’t have a food processor, puree the dates coarsely in a blender and then mix with the other ingredients in a bowl using a spatula.
