Raw Sesame Coconut Chocolate Date Cookie/crackers

Ate a bag of "GoRaw" chocolate cookies from whole foods and really liked them- quite addictive! Here's my try at recreating them.

One batch per below can fit on a somewhat small baking sheet. Make a double or triple batch using 2 or 3 pans.

Combine in food processor:

3/4 C shredded coconut
1/2 C sprouted sesame seeds (soak unhulled sesame seeds overnight, drain and let sit for 8 hours, then use)

4 medjool dates, pitted

2 TB raw cacao powder
1 TB water
pinch to 1/8 teaspoon salt



Combine into a ball- using pressure with your hands will bring the dough together.


Press dough onto cookie sheet. Lay wax paper on top. Use rolling pin to flatten to 1/4" or thinner.

Dry in lowest temp over (or dehydrator)- around 170 degrees.

Flip over when the top dries out a bit.

(since I don't have a fanyy excalibur dehydrator- mine is really more jerky/fruit style- I start in the oven on a pan. Then when dry enough it will stay together in pieces that I can transfer to the dehydrator).

Cut into pieces. Finish dehydrating/drying until crunchy. Great for a trail snack as they're light weight but pack a lot of energy!
