I made this the evening I received the blog. Oh my goodness, how delicious they are! They are like a soft Larabar, but better. What a tasty treat (with no guilt attached). She should have won a case of oil for this delicious recipe.

I will make these cookies because I like everything in them, especially the raw nuts. As with anything that I eat, proper portion. Thank for submitting it!

Why the protein powder? The 2 cups of nuts provide more than enough high quality plant protein. Most protein powders are soy or dairy based and toxic as well as acid forming. People need to let go of their protein brainwashing (courtesy of the meat and dairy industries).

Jeff: The protein powder is a small amount, so it can be eliminated if the user decides to. Tropical Traditions however sells 2 high quality and healthy protein powders (click on the ingredient) that is made from goat's milk and contains no harmful ingredients.

@jeff -- there are also some excellent hemp-based protein powders out there as well... and for some of us who are metabolic protein types, having that extra protein boost really is important. Carb and Mixed types don't need to be quite so aware, but the quantities of dried fruits in these would make them a real issue for someone like me, even if I only ate ONE, were it not for the extra protein boost from the protein to offset all the fructose in the dried fruit.

WOW I made up something similar last night. I used dates, apricots, cardamom, coconut flour, ground macadamia nuts, coconut cream (tropical traditions) coconut oil and swerve sweetener. I rolled half of the batter into balls and froze them. I added 2 heaping tablespoons of cocoa powder and a little more coconut oil to the dough and rolled and froze them. They are very good also. I did it all in a food processor.
