Whole Food Plant-Based Nutty Cookies

Life gets busy so it’s nice to have some grab-and-go snacks on hand. The only problem? Pre-made snacks are usually packed with sugar, oil, and unhealthy preservatives. When the calendar starts filling up, I make a few batches of these super simple, filling whole food plant-based nutty cookies to slip into my bag for emergency snacking. No refined sugar, no added oil… just hearty delicious goodness.

Bonus: this vegan cookie dough can be eaten raw! Just form it into small balls for a quick energy snack or on the go.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time:  10-15 minutes, or until golden brown

Servings: 6 cookies


1 cup of pecans

1 cup of walnuts

12-15 dates, pitted

a dash of sea salt

a spritz of lemon juice


  1. Pulse ingredients in the food processor until the mix looks like a crumble
  2. Press firmly into cookie shapes
  3. Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
