  • Use your imagination.

How to make it:


  1. In a small sauce pan, mix sweeteners well, then add chocolate.
  2. Also add dried fruits if you want them.
  3. Place over low flame and cook slowly, stirring constantly until it comes to a boil.
  4. Then stir occasionally for about 15 more minutes. Stir in butter & salt.
  5. Remove from heat and let cool to lukewarm.
  6. Stir in almond extract.
  7. Chill (this can be prepared a few days in advance).


  8. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  9. Mix flour, salt & soda, sift again, and set aside. Cream butter & oil, gradually work in sweetener till well blended.
  10. Work in eggs.
  11. Combine butter mixture and flour mixture.
  12. Add Optional fruits and/or nuts (I added 1/2C shredded carrots).
  13. Grease two cookie sheets.
  14. Drop dough by teaspoon, leaving room for spreading. Put about 1/2 teaspoon of topping mixture on dough (I pressed it in. You could roll it into a ball first). Bake for about 10-12 minutes.
  15. Cool and enjoy!!


    This recipe came about when I tried to make fudge using date sugar. Don't try it, it doesn't work!!! So, I had this goo left after admitting defeat and decided to try using it in cookies. It came out much better than I thought it would. And...the date sugar works well with the chocolate. Best of all, it satisfies that 'need' for a treat and is compliant (unless some neutrals have changed and I don't know it). With figs added and the olive and flaxseed oils it at least has some highly beneficals. We will just ignore the sugars for the sake of a cookie treat.
