Beat sugar cravings naturally - Almond and orange cookies

It was my youngest daughters' 15th Birthday over the weekend - its always difficult to find recipes and foods that are 'acceptable' to this age group (or any age group probably!!).  Teenagers particularly like 'sweet' foods and Marcella is no exception - she craves sugar (more addictive than cocaine - marie claire).
So you need to find ways of giving them the sugar hit - without using refined sugars.  This is one such recipe that she adores, its so simple and reminds me of lovely holidays in Spain.......enjoy!

Spanish inspired almond and orange cookies

2 1/2 cups of Ground Almonds 
1/2 cup Agave Nectar
4  tbls (one jar) Raw Almond Butter
6-8 drops Almond Extract
2tsp Grated Orange Zest
Raw Whole Almonds, to top each cookie

Mix all the above indredients together to form a paste and either roll out and use a fluted cutter or roll into balls and squash flat into a round shape. Place on a dehydrator tray for 10-12 hours.  If you don't have a dehydrator put into a cool oven around 110.

Can I simply say what a relief to seek out somebody who truly is aware of what theyre speaking about on the internet. You positively know the right way to deliver an issue to gentle and make it important. Extra people have to learn this and understand this side of the story. I cant consider youre not more widespread since you definitely have the gift.
