Chia Date Hearts

From my friends who had never had a raw cookie (first comment was "Is this a dog treat?") to my family that has been exposed to my creations for awhile, this was a winner.

Sweetened with dates, it is full of protein and nutrients, and a good snack or dessert.

A very easy recipe, it was created by tossing in pretty much every ingredient I had on hand.

Chia Date Hearts


7 organic Medjool dates, pitted
3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk or water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon organic almond extract
2 tablespoons sunflower seed butter
1/3 to 1/2 cup raw sprouted almonds
2 tablespoon ground chia seeds
2 teaspoons organic coconut oil


1.  Food process ingredients, adding as much water or coconut milk as needed for dough to come together into one ball.
2.  Divide into little discs or form into a shape, such as hearts!
