Vegan, Grain and Refined sugar free Nutty Cherry Power Cookie


Medjool dates
Unsweetened coconut
Agave Nectar

Possible Add-Ins/ Mix-Ins:

Dried cherries
Theo cacao nibs https://www.theochocolate.com/product/36/86
Semisweet chocolate chips(the cookies with choc chips in them will not be vegan or refined sugar free- unless you use Vegan Chocolate- I suggest Theo 70% Dark Chocolate, chopped into chunks https://www.theochocolate.com/product/4/75)

The Stars of the Show: Organic Blue Agave Nectar, Trader Joes Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips, Whole Foods Unsweetened Shredded Coconut, Theo Roasted Cocoa Nibs, Dried Cherries, Raw Cashews, Raw Walnuts, Medjool Dates.
Dough with Cocoa Nibs on Top and Chocolate Chips on the bottom.
It was difficult to get the dough with the chocolate chips to hold together. Smaller chocolate chunks would be ideal. 

The Product Line:)
Chocolate Chip Cookie
Chocolate Teddy (chocolate chips were ground into the batter)
Cherry Cocoa Nib Choo Choo Trains
Cherry Cocoa Nib Cookies
Very Cherry Heart Cookies (Cherries were blended into the batter instead of left whole)
Cherry Thumbprint Cookie
I ended up over-cooking the Trains- So they became Graham Crackers:) We are going to a Smores Night tonight and I am going to bring the Train Crackers to use as my Gluten Free/Grain Free Cracker:)

For some of the cookies, I rolled out the dough and used cookie cutters.
This dough has Cocoa Nibs and Dried Cherries in it.
The Teddy's are headed for the oven:)
