Go ahead! Try this perfectly sweet and delicate tasting "butter" cookies! The unique flavour is something you'll definitely fall in love with.
1 cup whole raw almonds
1/2 cup raw cashew pieces
1.5 Tbsp Coconut Oil
2 Tbsp Raw Sugar (or sugar substitute)
1.5 tsp pure vanilla extract
Pinch of Pink Himalayan Salt
1 Tbsp dried lavender
Makes approx 2 dozen cookies
Place almonds, and cashews in a food processor and mix on high until it becomes crumbly. add coconut oil, sugar, vanilla and salt, and pulse until you reach a grainy wet sand mixture. Add the lavender to the processor, and pulse gently only a few times to add the lavender to the mix. You don't want to over process the lavender, or you'll break down the cell walls, and have an oily lavender cookie.. still tasty, but not the "butter cookie" flavour/texture you're looking for.
Either roll the cookies into balls, disks, or use cookie cutters like I did to shape. place in the freezer for 20 minutes to set, and store in an air tight container in the fridge. Yum yum!
