Peanut Butter Cookies

I recently went to my local health food store and picked up a Peanut Butter Cookie Larabar. When I opened it up and took my first bite I was incredibly surprised at how much it really tasted like a peanut butter cookie. It had a smooth peanut buttery flavor with just the right amount of sweetness you expect from a cookie. I was instantly hooked. I looked at the ingredients and it read “dates, peanuts, salt”. THAT’S IT?!? Three simple ingredients that I happen to have? Comfort food without the guilt? Bring it on, baby! So, I decided to attempt to recreate the concoction of flavor I adored. This is what I came up with:

Peanut Butter Cookies

1 pound of raw peanuts, soaked and dehydrated, divided

1 cup dates

1/4 tsp. pink Himalayan salt

1 tsp. Agave Nectar

Coarsely chop 1/2 pound of peanuts in the food processor. Set aside. Place 1/2 pound of peanut and salt in the food processor and process until it turns into a creamy peanut butter. This will
take about 5 minutes. Once it has turned into peanut butter, add the dates and blend until smooth. Add 1/4 pound chopped peanuts and agave nectar. Blend just until incorporated. Roll into bite-sized balls and smash into cookie shapes then roll in the remaining chopped peanuts. Dehydrate for about 4 hours or overnight in your oven with just the oven light on.
