Green Ginger Cookies

These can be made the day before they are served.
  • 2 cups spinach, kale, chard, or beet leaves (or some combination)
  • 1 cup oat groats (soaked 8 to 48 hours, drained, rinsed)
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger (or more, to taste)
  • 1 cup raisins (not soaked)
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds (not soaked, unless you're going to dehydrate the cookies)
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt (may also use dulse or celery salt)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg powder
  • 1 lemon's juice
  • 2 tablespoons coconut shreds (optional, do not use if you have digestive difficulty)
  1. Soak oat groats overnight in drinking water. 
  2. Drain oat groats and rinse thoroughly with drinking water.
  3. Pat oats dry with a clean towel.
  4. Put all ingredients into your food processor.
  5. If a chunky texture is desired, reserve two tablespoons of raisins and two tablespoons of oats to add after the initial blend.
  6. Blend until a smooth soft dough is formed. (Scraping down the sides of your food processor multiple times may be required.)
  7. If creating chunky cookies, add reserved oats and raisins and pulse ten to twenty times.
  8. Form cookies. These can be rolled into balls, or smashed into cookie-like shapes, or rolled and then cut into triangles or squares.
  9. If using coconut shreds, coat the outside of the cookie with coconut shreds.
  10. Put in the dehydrator or the fridge. Either will firm them and create a pleasant cookie.
  11. Dehydrator: Two to six hours at 105°F to 110°F. May use 120°F for the first hour without cooking your cookies.
  12. Fridge: Use wax paper between cookies if not using coconut shreds. Let sit for two to twenty-four hours.

When reading, the most incredible things I've ever learned came from stories. Stories are more memorable. They create images and time-lines in our minds. They give us all the background information that lead up to a great moment, a great realization, a great break-through.
In reality, we only truly grasp ("grok") something through personal experience. We can not add to our experience through reading dry data. But we really can and do add to our experience with stories. The more detailed, authentic, and dynamic the story, the more there is for us to learn from it. The more it resonates with us and touches us, the more we retain what we've learned.
It is because of this that I'm writing my own life as a series of autobiographical novels.
