We are pleased to say that we have found a family farmer in California who is growing them. Tony Inzana grows pecans to perfection in the wondrous fertile soil of California's Central Valley. We feel priviledged to work with him.

By Kristen Suzanne
A yummy vegan cookie your family will ask for again and again.
- 1 1/2 cups pecans
- 1/2 cup unsweetened, shredded dried coconut
- 1 tablespoon lucuma powder*(optional)
- Pinch Himalayan crystal salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 10 dates, pitted
Process all of the ingredients, except for the raisins and dates, in a food processor fitted with the S-blade, until coarsely ground. Add the raisins and dates and continue processing until the mixture begins to stick together when pressed between your fingers. Roll and form into desired shapes and sizes. Alive Pecan Pie with Almonds and Dates
- 2 cups Living Tree almonds, soaked for one hour, drained, dried
- 3 dozen pitted Medjool dates, soaked for one hour, drained (save water)
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon or lime juice
- 1/2 teaspoon Living Tree cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon Royal Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt
- 1 tablespoon Living Tree vanilla powder
- 2 cups Living Tree pecans, soaked for one hour, drained, dried
- Living Tree Alive Coconut oil
Put almonds and 10 dates in a food processor and blend until they have a crust-like consistency. Add a small amount of water (saved from soaking the dates) if necessary to aid in bringing almonds and dates together.
Grease a pie plate or 9-inch square baking pan with a light coat of coconut oil to prevent the pie from sticking.
Use a spatula or the underside of a spoon to press the almond-date crust into the bottom and sides of the plate or pan. Put the finished crust in the freezer until time to fill it.
Combine the remaining dates, fresh lemon or lime juice, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla in a food processor and blend until smooth. Use a small amount of water (left over from soaking dates) if necessary.
Spread the date filling evenly over the almond-date crust and arrange the alive pecans on top of the filling, pressing down lightly to keep the pecans in place.
Hint: Put a bit of Living Tree Snugglespoon Honey on top of the pecans for a tasty glaze.
