We always wish we had something sweet when sitting around the fire.

The smore suggestion is often thrown around, but vegan marshmallows are expensive & usually use syrup — & Allie-approved graham crackers & chocolate aren’t exactly cheap either…& I’m out of homemade chocolate…already.
Almond Butter & Cacao Nib Cookies
makes ~16 small cookies
Preheat oven to 350*F.
- 4 dates, pureed into paste
- 1 C almond butter, unsalted & stirred well
- 1 flax “egg” (whisk 1 T freshly ground flaxseeds with 3 T warm water, allow to thicken ~10 minutes)
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- ~1/4 C cacao nibs (or mini-chocolate chips)
Combine all ingredients except cacao nibs & mix well [you don’t want to bite into a salt or baking soda cloud]. Stir in cacao or chocolate pieces. Spoon into tablespoon-size balls & flatten onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for ~12 minutes until lightly browned. Cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack & cool 15 minutes longer.
