Ingredients

Almonds
3 ounces
(about one half of a cup)
Oats
3 ounces
(about one half of a cup)

6 ounces
(about one cup)
Chia seeds
1 tablespoon
Water
3 tablespoons
Cacao nibs (chocolate)
1 ounce
(about one fourth of a cup)
Walnuts

Preparing the dough

  1. Mix the chia seeds and water in a bowl and let them sit for 10 minutes–or until they form a sticky gelatin
  2. Place oats in a food processor and blend until they’re a fine powder, like flour
  3. Blend almonds in a food processor for about 15 minutes–or until they release their oils and become almond butter
  4. Remove pits from dates and chop them into small pieces
  5. Chop almonds into small pieces
  6. Combine the sticky chia seeds & water mixture with the dates and the almond butter–and mix thoroughly
  7. Add the oat flour and mix until it feels doughy
  8. Add the walnuts and cacoa nibs and fold them into the dough

Making each cookie

  1. Scoop a heaping tablespoon of cookie dough onto a plate
  2. Roll the dough into a ball
  3. Place the ball on a cookie sheet, and flatten it with a large spoon

Baking

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees
  2. Place the cookies in the oven for 10 minutes or until edges or top are slightly browned. You may want to rotate the cookie sheet in the oven after 5 minutes, so the cookies bake evenly.
  3. Remove the cookies from the oven and place them on a cooling rack
  4. Enjoy your cookies! 🙂
