Almond Butter and Raisin Cookies
2 Cups Sprouted Buckwheat
2 Tablespoons Almond Butter
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
2 teaspoons Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Honey
1 Cup Raisins, pre -soak in spring or filtered water
These Cookies have an unusual taste from the buckwheat, but I've been making them for years and I just love them. I like the fact that they are not too sweet.
To make them start with, taking your 1 cup of raisins and place them in a bowl and pour in a cup or so of spring water to soak them. They need to soak for 1 hour.
After your raisins have soaked, placing all ingredients, except the raisins, in a food processor and blend until smooth.
Next, remove the mixed ingredients from the processor and place in a bowl. Drain your raisins and mix them into the other ingredients by hand. Just fold them in. Next form the mixture into cookie shapes and place them on a mesh screen tray from your dehydrator.
Now dehydrate the cookies at 105 degrees for 8 hours. After the 8 hours take them out and eat them all. Okay not really you can share them with your family and friends.
Note: The cookies should be firm but not hard

I used to make a (very) SAD lol..version of peanut butter cookies that had no flour in them, only peanut butter, sugar and egg. They were so YUMMMY and chewey. I wonder if you could take almond butter, maple syrup (if you use it) and hmm....banana?? :-)If you only added almond pulp, I don't think they would be chewey, ..and then dehydrate them? Also, do you use extracts? Sometimes I use (natural)maple flavoring..If you want them to be very "amaretto-ish," I bet almond flavoring could hide the banana flavor...or maybe some bland veggie like zucchini could provide the "filler"?
My "recipes" are pretty simple..:o
