Chocolate Jalapeno Om Noms! RAWR ;)

…chocolate?…jalapeno?? Yeah, you read right. I went there. These are amazing!! Oh, & btw, my new nickname for raw cookies is “om noms.” Dig it.
I tested these om noms on my mom & brother without letting them know what the secret ingredient was. They’re not spicy, but when you eat them, it’s pretty obvious that there is something completely different about them. Say the word ‘jalapeno’ & watch the shock set in. My mom & bro were pretty friggin’ amazed. I like to amaze people ;) As for me, I was having a hard time not eating all of the batter before having a chance to take a picture! Oh, btw, the hands & feet shape didn’t turn out so well because it was kind of a sticky batter. You can refrigerate it for 30 minutes before shaping if that makes it easier for you :) It’s your kitchen!

BTW: My hands & feet shaped om noms look really messed up because of the sticky batter. Doesn't make 'em taste any less awesome.
From my creative kitchen to yours <3

Ingredients:
1/2 jalapeno pepper, minced
1/2 cup almonds, soaked
2 tbs cacao powder
2 tbs coconut flour
1/2 cup dates, pitted

Directions:
1) In a food processor, process jalapeno, almonds, cacao & coconut flour together until mixed well.
2) Add dates & process until a dough is formed.
3) Remove dough & shape into desired form. Store in the fridge, covered to firm.

Peace, love, food <3

Char, xo
