Coconut Date Cookies

I love how cookies and other goodies are part of the raw food lifestyle.  When my kids get up I'm not too concerned if they grab raw cereal, a smoothie, a piece of raw apple pie or a cookie for breakfast - everything is nutrient dense.  It's really discerning to see other kids marching off to school with Pop Tarts or Toaster Strudel (especially since these are the same kids who will be buying a school lunch! Blech!).  It's no wonder that they have a hard time paying attention and learning.

These cookies are a fantastic blend of nuts, spices, coconut and dates with just a smidgen of honey. For a chocolate treat, you can throw in some raw cacao or carob. Good for a snack or breakfast!
