What is edible cookie dough made of?

How to make Edible Cookie Dough

Healthy Edible Cookie Dough

First of all, soak up 2 cups of nuts/seeds overnight in warm water and a pinch of salt.

Raw nuts and seeds contain phytates and enzyme inhibitors which can make them hard for our bodies to digest. Soaking them in mineral water can help neutralize the inhibitors thus easier for our bodies to absorb the nutrients and minerals in nuts and seeds.

Secondly, drain the nuts/seeds and rinse them all.

Lastly, pulse in food processer to reach a fine texture. Add the remaining ingredients. Pulse again.
