Will Run For Vintage Tupperware Hamburger Press

I was not so secretly very excited when my grandmother gave me a 'vintage' tupperware hamburger press.  If you are wondering what a vegetarian does with a hamburger press she makes raw cocoa nib and oatmeal cookies with it of course.

* oats are not technically raw but they are pretty close (incase you were concerned :P)

Raw Cocoa Nib & Oatmeal Cookies
(7 large cookies or 14 balls)


1 C medjool dates (approximately 10)
1/2 C oatmeal (not quick cooking)
1/2 C raw almonds
1 vanilla bean + 1 tsp water (or 1 tsp vanilla bean paste or 1 tsp vanilla extract)
1 Tbsp cocoa nibs (raw chocolate nibs  I used Navita naturals)

In a blender combine oats and almonds.  Pulse until you have a course powder.

Add dates, vanilla bean scrapings + 1 tsp water to oats and almonds and pulse until mixture sticks together.

Add cocoa nibs.  Roll into balls or use your 'vintage' hamburger press to make cookies.

* I like to store cookies in the refrigerator or freezer.


  1. can you bring me one of these please?

  2. Well, if I hadn't eaten them all I could have. Unless you wanted the hamburger press and not the cookies. How about on our next run :P
