Coconut-Lime Cookies

These cookies, from Living Raw Food, by Sarma Melngailis, are easy and tasty to make. And ya'll know I'm all about easy! I cut the entire recipe in half because I only had 1 cup of macadamia nuts.

2 cups mac nuts
1 cup shredded dried coconut (buy at the store, don't try to shred & dry coconuts at home!)
1 tablespoon lime zest
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup agave nectar
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Put the nuts in the freezer to chill for a few minutes. Take them out, and put them in a food processor with the coconut and lime zest and pulse until combined by the mixture is still a bit chunky. Don't overprocess or mixture will become oily. Transfer mixture to a bowl. Add the remaining ingredients. Using a ice cream scooper, or tablespoon, place rounds of the mixture in a dehydrator on a Teflex sheet (I use parchment paper). Flatten them into cookies about 1/2 inch thick. Dehydrate for @ 24 hours or until your desired consistency.
