Total time

Serves: 20
Ingredients
•    1 ripe banana cup into small pieces
•    4 dates chopped
•    4 prunes chopped
•    ¼ cup coconut oil melted
•    1 tsp vanilla
•    2 cups rolled oats
•    ⅔ cups of nut meal (I like almonds and pecans – I smash them into meal by hand using my rolling pin)
•    ½ cup of unsweetened coconut flakes
•    ½ tsp cinnamon
•    ½ tsp sea salt
•    1 tsp aluminum free baking powder (if baking)
•    7 ounces good dark chocolate chopped into pieces or chips or dried unsweetened cherries
Instructions
1.    If Baking:
2.    Preheat oven to 350 degrees
3.    In a blender – Combine banana, dates, prunes, coconut oil and vanilla and blend until smooth
4.    In a large bowl combine all other ingredients and mix so all components are equally distributed
5.    Pour blender mixture into dry ingredients and stir until batter is moist and mixed well
6.    Scoop dough using an ice cream scooper onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
7.    Alternatively, you can refrigerate the dough for 30 mins to make it harder and easier to make uniform cookies
8.    Bake cookies at 350 degrees for 12-15 mins
9.    Cool cookies on a rack for at least 5 mins before consuming – otherwise they will fall apart
10.    If Dehydrating:
11.    Follow steps 2-5 above
12.    Place cookies on dehydrator sheets
13.    Dehydrate at 105 degrees for approximately 12 hours
14.    If Eating Completely Raw:
15.    Follow steps above to make the dough
16.    Place dough in a large zip lock bag and press to form into a wide log – you may need two bags
17.    Place in freezer and enjoy slices of the cookie dough anytime!
Notes
Makes approximately 20 cookies or 36 small cookies (if using a small ice cream scooper) **Please buy all organic ingredients if possible**
