Black Forest Honey Christmas Cookies

Black Forest Organic Honey Christmas Cookies Honeydew

 

We call these "Black Forest Honey Christmas Cookies", but you could very well call them Cranberry Thumbprints! They are super quick and easy to whip up last minute - if you're looking for a healthy snack on Christmas! These cookies are raw/no-bake, sweetened Silver Fir honey and topped with a fresh sugared cranberry! We used hazelnuts, but they could also be made with walnuts or organic almonds. Packed with lots and lots of pure cocoa powder, and hemp-seeds for some extra punch. The truth is, these cookies came about by accident! I was actually planning on turning them into a batch of bliss balls, but had leftover cranberries in the fridge and thought to myself how much more festive they would look if topped with a cranberry! We served them on a little dessert cheeseboard with some more fruits and berries. Be sure to let us know how you love them!

 

Ingredients:

1/2 cup hazelnuts 

1/4 cup dates 

1/4 cup hazelnut meal 

2 TBSP cocoa powder 

1 TBSP hemp-seeds 

Pinch of sea salt 

1 TBSP hazelnut butter 

1 TBSP Silver Fir Honey 

 

Directions:

Add the hazelnuts to a food processor and pulse. Add dates and hazelnut meal, cocoa, hemp-seeds, salt, hazelnut butter, and honey. Pulse until combined. The result should be somewhat of a dough-texture. If too moist add more hemp-seeds, if too dry add a bit more honey. Refrigerate for 20 minutes. Using the TBSP measure scoops and form into balls. Press the balls with your thumb to create the print and top with a sugared cranberry. We like making our sugared cranberries. Refrigerate the balls for about 1 week. Or they keep for much longer in the freezer.
