Raw Almond Crescents


Crescent Video

So although there may be no music playing during my video… imagine me dancing around the kitchen to Dominick the Donkey and I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas  as I make these cookies! There recipe below is for one batch. I made 2 batches in the video and a total of 4 batches to give away this year!

For 1 batch of cookies, you need to start by making almond milk with 1.5 cups of almonds to 4 cups of water. Blend and strain the milk and then dehydrate the almond meal overnight. Use almond milk to drink hot cacao while making cookies!

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 cup of dehydrated almond meal (or brazil or hazelnut)
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 Tablespoons of maple syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon of almond extract
  • powdered maple sugar

First put the oats in the bottom of the blender and add almond meal and salt (you don’t need salt if you used it when making almond milk)  on top. Then blend until a fine flour, but not so much it starts to create a paste. Then in a bowl add the maple syrup and extract. stir and massage to combine. Form into crescents ( or balls- who am i to judge 😉

Put on a dehydrator screen and dehydrate at 100 degrees for 6 to 8 hours. Blend maple SUGAR into a powder and dust on top of cookies.

One batch makes 8 cookies.

Although you can double and triple your batches in the bowl. Only make one batch of flour in the blender at a time.

  1. Liz, you are hysterical!!!!! I just heard the Hippopotamus song for the first time last weekend in Tucson – did not realize it was a thing – but it’s my new favorite Xmas song! This: “Use almond milk to drink hot cacao while making cookies!” is my favorite part 🙂
