I'm in the mood for cookies! Do you have a recipe to share?

Are you looking for something to have right now? What kind of ingredients do you have to work with? Dates, nuts, shredded coconut, dried fruits, coconut oil, coconut or nut butters, cacao powder.......?
I wouldn't want to post something that would make you more hungry for cookies that you can't have. ;) Do you have a dehydrator?

Yes, I have all of the above ingredients and excellent store very nearby for anything else. Also, getting an Excalibur by the end of the week.
What's your favorite cookie?

Hard to choose. Never met a cookie I didn't like. :)
It might have to be the Chocolate, Chocolate Brownies by Vegan Bear http://www.rawfoodtalk.com/showthread.php?t=47612&highlight=chocolate+talk
Close second: Raw Priestess Brownies - No dehydrator needed. http://www.rawfoodtalk.com/showthread.php?t=32313
Not in the mood for chocolate...? pear walnut YUMMY! They were more like cookies than pancakes. http://www.theraway.com/pearpancakes.pdf
For a quick fix:
Lemon cookies: 1 cup shredded coconut, 1/4 cup coconut butter, 1 t. vanilla, 2 T. agave, 1/2 cup cashews (or other nut), juice of 1 or 2 lemons Mix, shape, refrigherate.
Chocolate cookies: omit lemon juice, substitute 2-4 T. cacao powder
Have fun experiementing!

Thank you, RawKnitster!
That gives me a great start to satisfy my cookie craving. I'm going to try them all.
These recipes are from RFRW
I use a combination of raw honey and agave instead of maple syrup or sometimes soaked dates. These are a must try when you get the dehydrator.
3 cups died, unsweetened coconut flakes
1 1/2 cup fine almond flour
1 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup coconut butter
1 T vanilla extract
1/2 t sea salt
1. in a large bowl, combine all the ingredient and stir well to combine. you can also use a standing mixer with the paddle attachment.
2. using a small ice cream scoop, your hands, or a big tablespoon, spoon rounds of the dough onto dehydrator screens. if you are using your hands, it helps to refrigerate the mix a bit prior to forming the macaroons. Dehydrate at 115 or 12 to 24 hours, or until crisp on the outside and nice and chewy on the inside.
3 C dried unsweetened coconut flakes
1 1/2 C cocoa powder (I used cacao)
1 C maple syrup
1/3 C coconut butter (I used the creme de coco virgin kind, and melted it in my dehydtrator first)
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
In large bowl or standing mixer combine all ingredients thoroughly.
Using a small ice cream scoop (I used a cookie scoop it worked beautifully) your hands or a big tablespoon, spoon rounds of dough onto teflex or parchment paper.
Dehydrate at 115 degrees for 12-24 hrs or until crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside (I did 105 degrees, and I just passed the 24 hr mark)

Thanks Jen! I absolutely love the taste of coconut and here in Hawaii we get very good ones. I like your idea of using agave, honey and dates. I think dates and coconut make a great pair!
