These are a really yummy and healthy treat. I confess to having a bit of a thing for salted caramel, and these bring those flavours out beautifully. With only a handful of ingredients, and a few seconds to blend together they are quick and easy to pull together and a great one for the kids to make. My daughter is excellent at pitting the dates for me and these are her favourite cookies! Enjoy XX
Chewy Salted Caramel Cookies
Makes approximately 16 cookies
- 1 1/2 cups raw macadamia nuts
- 1 1/2 cups pitted medjool dates
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
Place all ingredients into a food processor and blitz until well combined.
If using a Thermomix (or similar), place all ingredients into the mixing bowl and mix 20 seconds, speed 9.
Roll the mixture into balls about 1 tablespoon each. Flatten with your palm and bake in a moderate oven (180 degrees Celcius or 350 degrees Fahrenheit) for 12-15 minutes or until cooked to your liking.
Careful as they will burn easily so keep an eye on them and keep in mind that they will continue to cook for a minute or so after you have taken them out of the oven.
Allow to cool and enjoy.
