Wow is that a LONG TITLE! lol These are by far my favs out of all of my creations. Except for the Blonde Brownies Cookies I created last week! Those were delish too :) These actually remind me of Starbucks Coffee infused Caffeine Brownies, actually they taste just like them! And not to mention I think I have found the key to not OVERINDULGING in these little wonders! Add instant coffee to all of them and you will only be able to have a few! lol Well not to all recipes like my Carrot Cakes Cookies, that may be a little strange! But anything that consists of dates, nut butters and chocolate add add away my dears! ha ha I cannot wait to have five little cookies as my mid afternoon snack today. Of course I had to taste test a little this morning....you know...just to make sure!
And yes...I have a little of a caffeine buzz goin on right now!
Lisa's Raw Irish Creme Chocolate Fudge Coffee Cookies
1/4 cup raw pecans 8 medjool dates 1/4 tsp sea salt 2 tbsp Irish Creme Agave Nectar 2 tbsp instant coffee 2 tbsp Dark Cocoa 2 tbsp raw almond butter 1 to 2 tsp vanilla extract
Blend pecans to a fine powder. Add your medjools and blend until a batter starts to form. Add in all the remaining ingredients and blend away until a ball starts to form. Plop down on a cutting board and roll into one large ball. Make 20-30 cookies and roll away until they are shiny on the outside. It's much prettier this way!
Freeze or throw in the refrigerator. Or you can prepack them for snacks. Enjoy!
I would love to see what all of you can come up with! I challenge you to be creative and do something no one else would think of. lol These cookies are everywhere and no one can claim they came up with them, it's just how creative can you be at re-creating the wheel right!?! That is what motivates me :)
What are your plans for the week? Does anyone have any romantic Valentine's stories for me!!?
