Nut cookies

This is a primal recipe--no grains, relatively low carb.  I started from this recipe for chocolate chip cookies-- I didn't bother with the chocolate chips and didn't miss them.

8 pitted prunes
1 1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup pecans
1 tsp baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 egg
1/4 cup sunflower seeds

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Grind prunes, walnuts and pecans in a food processor until very finely chopped. Add baking soda and salt and pulse a few more times.

Melt the coconut oil. With the food processor running, drizzle it into the batter with the egg and vanilla. Add sunflower seeds and process until somewhat chopped.  Stir in chocolate chips or raisins if desired.

The dough will form a wet ball.  Make small balls and flatten on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  Bake 15 minutes, or until nicely browned.
