42. Ambrosia Cookies

1 cup oat groats, soaked and sprouted
1 cup pecans, soaked
5 dates, soaked, reserve soaking water
1 cup dried pineapple, soaked
1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
1 cup dried coconut

1 Place oat groats in a food processor and pulse until it's a oatmeal consistency. Add in pecans and pineapple.
2 Place mixture in a large bowl, add in vanilla extract, ground cinnamon and sea salt. Fold in dried coconut. Mix well.
3 Form into cookies and place on the Teflex sheet. Dehydrate at 110 degrees for 4-6 hours. They should be firm yet soft and chewy.

Blended all together and put in dehydrator. They are delicious!
