Gluten Free Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies

These lovely cookies are rustic and almost raw. They're super fast to make and really delicious and filling.

For some reason their "rusticness" reminds me of this shot we took at Disney World in January from Tom Sawyer Island. We love WDW and we've been kind of obsessing over it for the past while. Oh how we wish  to visit it all the time. This obviously can't be the case but we still dream.

Gluten Free Vegan PB Cookies
Recipe by Whole Family Fare
-1 cup raw or dry roasted almonds
-1 cup pitted medjool dates
-1/2 cup natural peanut butter
-1 1/2 teaspoons alcohol free vanilla extract

Place the almonds in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until it resembles a coarse meal. Add the dates, peanut butter and vanilla. If your almonds and peanut butter are unsalted, I'd add about 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt in as well. Pulse for a couple minutes until it forms a dough. You may need to add a couple more tablespoons of peanut butter. Shape into little walnut sized balls and place each ball on a piece of parchment paper. Makes about 20 little "cookies".
