- 2 cups Medjool dates, pitted
- 24 pecan halves
In a food processor add the 2 cups of pecans and coconut shreds and process until they are ground. Then mix in the dates and coconut oil until smooth. If needed, add just enough water so that it is the consistency of thick cookie dough. Remove the dough from the food processor and shape with a cookie cutter of your choice. Press a whole pecan halve in the center of each cookie and dehydrate at 115 deg F for 24 hours or until they are dry and crispy.
