cardamom rye date nut drops

This recipe combines some of my most favorite flavors; rye, dates, hemp seeds, cardamom and coconut. These are all balanced in a dense and sweet (yet no sugar added) vegan dough laced with walnuts and a hint of cinnamon spice. mmm.

Inspired by my newest cookbook: Tassajara lunches, picnics and appetizers, I made a rye hemp adaption on their date and coconut cookies. For a girl who dislikes cookies so much, I have sure been baking lots of them these days! Keeping the troops happy and fueled.


Start by pulsing in a processor:

1/2 cup of dates (pitted)

1/2 cup walnuts

then mix in a large bowl:

fruit and nut mix

1/2 cup hemp seeds

1/2 cup coconut

1  1/2 tsp nutritional yeast

1 cup white spelt flour

1 cup fine rye flour

a pinch of fine sea salt

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp cardamom ground

then mix in

3/4 cup aguave syrup

1/2 cup organic veggie oil (I like grape seed for baking)


Once combined  portion into small balls and bake at 325 for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

share and enjoy over a cup of tea!
