- 1½ cups whole wheat flour
- ½ cup wheat bran
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 cup peanuts
- 1 cup water
- 2 apples (cored and quartered)
- 2 dates
I like to use whole grain spelt flour in my kitchen but 100% whole wheat flour works fine in this little cookie cluster. Place flour, bran and baking powder in mixing bowl. Place your nuts in a food processor and blend until you have a smooth butter. Meanwhile heat your water and two dates in the microwave or stovetop for 1 minute. Add the apples (with peel!) and your warm dates and water into the processor and blend. Mix your apple nutbutter mixture with your flour and drop by rounded spoons onto a non-stick cookie sheet or oven stone.
