Paleo Cookies - old post reposted

With Sam gone, someone is going to have to take up the reins of Paleo cookie making - so here is the yumminess for you all.

Paleo Cookies (Original recipe - Dave Fish)

Paleo Cookies Ingredients

2 cups raw honey (Mothers Market has some excellent raw organic honey)
2 cups ground walnuts (grind them in food processor)
4 cups ground almonds
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup dried fruit (raisins or cranberries)
*** 3 Scoops of Whey Protein totalling 150 grams of Protein if desired

***Directions
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
Lightly grease cookie sheet ( I use Pam spray)
Warm honey in sauces pan until melted and cool slightly
Place the ground nuts and cinnamon (Protein Powder) in a large bowl and mix together
Pour melted honey onto nut mixture and stir until well blended
Stir in dried fruit
Place the mixture onto cookie sheet and spread it evenly to meet all edges
Bake for 15-20 minutes.

I let cool in pan for at least 2 hours to set and then cut in to squares.
If you can let it sit over night the cookies come out really nice.
It is helpful to put the squares into muffin papers or on wax paper for the obvious sticky consistency of the cookie.
When we did the math we found the cookies lacked enough protein to be Zone friendly.
If you want to experiment add Whey Protein Powder to the mix and up the protein for a more Zone friendly snack.
