Worth their time in the dehydrator, these almond butter cookies with creamy chocolate frosting are beyond gratifying.

Yield: 14 cookies

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Dehydrate Time: 48 hours

1[1/4] cup almond butter

1 cup gala or other red apple, peeled and diced

6 dates, pitted, and soaked at least 30 minutes

[1/4] cup date soak water

Pinch cinnamon

[1/4] cup raw cacao powder

3 TB. agave nectar

1 TB. coconut oil

1.   Place almond butter, apple, dates, date soak water, and cinnamon in a food processor fitted with an S-shaped blade. Process on high speed for 20 to 40 seconds or until lumps are smooth..

2.   Using a spoon or a small scoop, scoop batter onto 2 Teflex-lined dehydrator trays in small rounds. You want them thin, about [1/4] inch thick. Drag a fork across them, making that distinctive peanut butter cookie cross-hatch.

3.   Dehydrate at 145°F for 2 hours. Reduce heat to 110°F and dehydrate for 22 more hours. Remove from Teflex and continue dehydrating for another 24 hours.

4.   Meanwhile, in a small mixing bowl, whisk together cacao powder, agave nectar, and coconut oil until smooth and creamy. Using a rubber spatula or a butter knife, frost cookies. Serve immediately or chill for 20 minutes before serving. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 or 6 days.
