Cooking Time



  • 1 1/2 cups almonds
  • 3/4 cup fresh dates, pitted
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder


  1. Soak nuts in 2 cups of filtered water with one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar for a minimum of two hours/up to six hours. Then rinse thoroughly with fresh water. This will increase the digestibility of the nuts and remove any moulds and mycotoxins.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  3. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and roast nuts for 10 - 15 minutes until dry and crunchy. Remove and let cool.
  4. Combine all ingredients in a high-speed food processor until you have a fine dough.
  5. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and pour crumbly mixture. Top with another sheet of parchment paper. Press down with a wooden board until the surface of the dough is even.
  6. Refrigerate for at least two hours before cutting into desired shapes. Work your cookie cutter magic too.
