Witches’ Finger Cookies (Peanut Butter and Chocolate cookies)

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

 

It’s getting close to that time of the year… Halloween!  My husband and I are throwing our 3rd annual Halloween Party this year and it is always my goal to serve a lot of raw, healthy foods!  This healthy cookie is disguised as a ole’ creepy witches’ finger!  Finger licking good?!  These peanut butter, chocolate cookies have a wonderful balance of flavor, especially when dipped into a deep dark berry jam!  Stop chewing on your fingernail!  Mahahahaha!

 

Ingredients: yields 35 fingers

  • 3 cups oats, & gluten-free (ground to a flour)
  • 3/4 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup raw agave nectar
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp raw cold pressed coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1 1/2  tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp sea salt

Preparation:

  1. To make your oat flour,  place 3 cups raw oats in the food processor and process until it becomes a fine powder.
  2. Add in the remaining ingredients, except for the coconut oil and blend until well incorporated.
  3. As the food processor is running,  drizzle in the melted coconut oil.  You may need to stop a few times and scrape the sides and spread the dough around evenly.
  4. Using a small cookie scoop (1 Tbsp), scoop out a leveled scoop and roll into a ball in the palm of your hand, then roll out into a small log.  Place the log on the mesh sheet that comes with your dehydrator and shape the finger, pinch the center into a large knuckle, make skin creases with a knife and push a naked half of an almond into the top of the finger to form the fingernail.  I soaked the almonds in warm water allowing me to remove the skins easily.
  5. Dehydrate them at 105 degrees for up to 16 hours.  They won’t become crispy. But the outsides will firm up somewhat.
  6. Store in fridge to extend the shelf life.  They will also keep in the freezer for several months.

**To melt coconut oil** – the best way to melt coconut oil is to boil some water in your tea kettle.  Set a jar of coconut oil in a large bowl and pour the hot water over it.  It will take less than 5 minutes to get some of it melted.  If you use the microwave you risk overheating the oil.

    What kind of raw peanut butter do you use? Our local health food stores carry raw almond butter but not raw peanut butter. Thanks!

    My family and I really enjoyed this recipe. I left them as balls instead of shaping them like fingers. I also just tossed the peanuts in with the oat flour and blended until everything stuck together (it saved me the step of making the peanut butter). I will defiantly be making these again soon.
