Raw “Sugar” Cookies

Our Ratings Liz Hubby Kids

One of the hardest things about eating a healthy diet is feeling like you’ll miss out on traditions and social experiences. Today, as I was making what are usually little granola-type balls, my son gave me the idea to instead roll them out and cut shapes like you would with sugar cookies. Since these only have 2 ingredients and don’t need to cook, they are super fast and easy. Even though these are really yummy, since it’s so fun to use cookie cutters and eat fun shaped things, I think I could add dirt to these and my kids would still eat them. (I find the same thing is true of anything frozen into a Popsicle shape).


1 cup Raw Almonds
1 cup Dates


  • Blend ingredients in high speed blender or process in food processor until gooey.
  • Roll out with rolling pin or press flat with hands to a quarter to a half inch thick.
  • Cut into shapes with cookie cutters and eat the remaining pieces or re-roll to cut more.

    I had to try this tonight when I saw it, and I am so glad I did. Seriously, I had NO idea a cookie from 2 ingredients could be so stinkin’ good! I love them, and will be making them very frequently.

    Dang! If you had just posted this 5 months earlier I wouldn’t have wasted the lovely bunch of dates my friend gave me as a housewarming gift. No one in my family wanted to eat them as they were and I couldn’t find a good recipe for them. After a few months of them sitting on my counter, I looked up date storage online (the two meanings of date made this a little hard) and found that they should have been refrigerated so, with heavy heart, I threw them out. Oh the guilt! (so bad that it propelled me to write this confession)

    I’m looking forward to trying this recipe and hope it will help me feel some sort of redemption. Thanks for posting this! I vow to always ask you first, if I need a good recipe to use up some uncommon ingredient. You are the queen of “outside the box” cooking!

    Lindsey, I’m glad you like them! And Barb, sorry about your dates. I’m wondering if I should refrigerate mine, but they’re usually gone within a week of buying them, so maybe they’re ok.
