Lemon Cashew Cookie recipe

3/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup millet, ground to flour (in coffee grinder)
1 cup raw cashews
20–25 small pitted dates (about 1 cup)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon lemon zest & 3 tablespoons juice
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat the oven at 350 F. Grind oats, millet flour, cashews, and dates in a food processor to coarse crumble. Sprinkle in baking soda and add lemon zest, juice, and vanilla. Process until sticky. Use a cookie scoop or round tablespoon to scoop out dough. Form in a ball with hands, and mash to a cookie shape. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes.


Use 1 1/2 cups rolled oats in place of using both oats and millet.

Use 1/3 cup shredded coconut in place of 1/3 cup cashews. Add a tablespoon or two of water at the end if dough is too dry and won’t hold together.
