Cookie Recipe

Because they are nutrient-dense, they are filling, too.  Just one or two does the trick!
Walnut Raisin Spice Cookies
Yield: approximately 10 cookies
2 cups walnut pieces
¼ cup coconut flakes
½ tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp. ground cardamom
1/8 tsp. ground ginger
2 egg whites, whisked until frothy
1/8 cup plus 3 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup raisins
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Grease a cookie sheet.
  3. Grind the walnut pieces, coconut flakes, cinnamon, cardamom and ginger in a food processor until well combined and consistency is like a coarse, moist flour. Transfer the walnut mixture to a bowl.
  4. Add in the eggs, honey and vanilla extract to make a batter.  Stir until all ingredients are well combined.
  5. Mix in the raisins and stir until evenly distributed.
  6. Using a teaspoon, drop equal-sized rounds of batter onto cookie sheet.  Using your fingers, flatten and shape into a circle
  7. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until edges start to brown.  Remove from oven and let cool.
