Our local farmer’s market always has an amazing selection of dried fruits and nuts. I stumbled upon a bag of juicy-looking dried nectarines recently and knew I’d wanna try making a raw cookie with them.

They are delicious out of hand too though. The concentrated nectarine juices burst with their bright peachiness. It’s a great flavor for summertime!

I love popping one of these after an intense workout for a shot of protein. The juicy little bits of nectarine are so sweet and sticky.

It’s a total accident that these came out in the cute little teardrop shape they did. I was going for round, but I kind of like that they look like little cookie guitar picks. :)
