Unprocessed Cookies. How to make cookies from scratch?
With just two ingredients Green Healthy Cooking Canada.
This process that Lorena uses is pretty awesome. It is combining a nut and date in a food processor to make a cookie. You do not have to use Pistachios; you can use Almonds and dates, Marcona Almonds and dates, Brazil nuts and dates, Cashews and dates, Chestnuts if you do not like Pistachios or want to make it again with another nut with the dates. Nutrition Irene Jones
Almonds; "contain lots of healthy fats, fiber, protein, magnesium, and vitamin E" Click Here for more information.
Marcona Almonds; "Marcona almonds are packed with key nutrients that can have a significant impact on your overall health. The fiber content is quite high, at 3 grams per ounce, and there is also one ounce of protein. In terms of vitamins and minerals, Marcona almonds possess good amounts of calcium, iron, and vitamin E, along with various antioxidants."
Cashews; "are low in sugar and rich in fiber, heart-healthy fats, and plant protein."
Chestnuts; "are a good source of many vitamins and minerals, such as copper, manganese, vitamin B6, vitamin C, thiamine, folate, riboflavin."
"Green Healthy Cooking is all about offering real food recipes made out of 95% unprocessed food. Only 95% because, let's be realistic, not all of us have a mill to grind grains and make flour in the kitchen corner or a cow to milk in the entry hallway."

To Learn how to make Unprocessed Pistachios Cookies.
1 cup of dates
1 cup shelled pistachios
1/4 cup of dark chocolate chips (optional)
If your dates are old and dry, place them in a heatproof container and pour boiling water over them. Let them soak for about 10 minutes in the hot water, then drain well. If your dates are super fresh, you can omit this step.
Add pistachios to a food processer and pulse about 10 times or until the pistachios resemble very coarse flour.
Add the dates to the coarse pistachios and process about 3 minutes or until everything sticks together and a ball forms inside the processor. The dough will be easily moldable and shouldn't stick to your fingers much.
Use a measuring spoon to make uniform size cookies (or not) and form half-moons or balls or flat circles or whichever shape you love.
Now you can eat them just like this OR....
Melt some chocolate and dip the pistachio cookies half or completely into the chocolate, then place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and place in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes for the chocolate to harden again.
Keep in the refrigerator for optimal freshness and eat within 4 days.
