The Suppers menu does not provide for much in the way of dessert because we avoid refined foods. Here is one exception: delicious “cookies” made by blending finely chopped dried fruits and nuts. These are extremely sweet, a treat.
In the food processor, combine the finely processed almonds, raisins and dates. They will start to form a ball. Take bite-sized pieces of the dough and roll them into a ball, then roll them in coconut or finely chopped nuts.
Add 1 TBS cocoa powder to the dough.
Add 1 tsp of cinnamon to the dough.
Add ½ cup dried unsweetened coconut to the dough.
Use other nuts: walnuts, pecans, or filberts.
Use other dried fruit: apricots, figs, currants.
Soak the raisins in the juice of a fresh orange or lemon instead of using hot water.
