Paleo Peacan Cookies
1 C almond meal (purchased at Trader Joe's)
1 C ground pecans (I ground them myself in a mini-food processor)
1/4 C raw cocoa nibs (purchased at Staff of Life)
1/2 C shredded coconut
1/4 C Goji berries (also purchased at Staff of Life... I've seen them at Whole Foods, too)
1/2 C dried apricots (about 10, finely chopped)
1 tsp. cinnamon
6 T agave nectar
Combine all ingredients (except agave nectar) and mix well. Then slowly add the agave nectar. The mixture will look a little crumbly, that's okay. You'll have to use your hands to form balls with about one T of dough. Place on cookie sheet (spray cookie sheet with oil to prevent sticking). Flatten each cookie slightly before baking. Cook at 350 degrees for 15-17 minutes. Makes 21-24 cookies. Scott gave them 2 thumbs up! Hope you enjoy....
