Ingredients

Cookie biscuit

  • 1 cup walnuts soak for 4 hours, then dehydrate
  • 1 cup pecans soak for 4 hours, then dehydrate
  • 1 cup Brazil nuts
  • 1 cup raw oats
  • 15 soft apricots dried, soaked 2 hrs+ and diced
  • 3/4 cup lucuma
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 tsp mixed spice or pumpkin spice

Green icing

  • 1/2 cup cacao butter chopped, melted
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1/2 cup spinach juice
  • 2 tbsp xylitol
  • 1 pinch salt

Orange icing

  • 1/2 cup cacao butter chopped, melted
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1/2 cup carrot juice
  • 2 tbsp xylitol
  • 1 pinch salt

Instructions

  • Grind the nuts from the cookie biscuit ingredients in a food processor until a flour forms.
  • Blend the oats into a flour in a high-speed blender.
  • With the ground nuts in the processor, add the oat flour and start to process again, adding a few apricots at a time until the mixture binds together. If it’s not binding, you can add some of the apricot soak water too.
  • Roll out the mixture on a flat surface to the desired thickness. If mixture sticks, mill some more oats to dust the rolling pin and rolling surface with.
  • Using a cookie cutter, cut the cookies from the rolled-out dough.
  • You will need to re-form and re-roll the leftover dough to get the most from it.
  • Dehydrate cookies on a mesh sheet for 10 to 12 hours at 115 degrees F.
  • Blend the green and orange icing ingredients separately in a Vitamix or other high-speed blender until smooth. Do not include the cacao butter yet.
  • Add the cacao butter and blend again just long enough to mix it in.
  • Transfer mixture to a piping bag and leave in the fridge long enough for it to set a little.
  • Decorate the cookies.
  • Place cookies in the fridge to let the icing set.

  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
