Cinnamon-Walnut Cookies

Elana Amsterdam | Delicious Living
  • Serves: 10 people

For a quick treat, throw all of these ingredients into the food processor and bake up a batch of these amazing little cookies for your next party. Full of fiber-rich dates, walnuts with omega-3s, and delightfully powerful cinnamon, they offer a clean, satisfying taste, sans a post-dessert hangover.

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350˚. Place walnuts and dates in a small food processor and pulse until coarsely ground. Pulse in oil, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Continue to pulse until mixture begins to form a ball.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Scoop dough, 1 tablespoon at a time, onto prepared baking sheet, forming into balls with your hands; flatten slightly. Bake for 6–8 minutes, until firm. Cool on baking sheet.
