Don’t you love how I go from posting about my insecurities to sharing my favorite raw cookie dough bites? Obviously I’m feeling better.
That’s the beauty of this blog. You never know what you’re going to get! Anyways, I seriously love these and so does my husband. Guilt-free, raw and packed with protein and heart-healthy fats, these just might be the best treat ever. (Sorry Lemon Chia Seed Muffins. I do still love you though!)
Here’s the recipe. Looks super easy right? The beauty is that they’re vegan and free from all the butter, raw eggs and flour in regular cookie dough so you won’t get a tummy ache! Yay!
1 cup raw almonds
1 cup raw walnuts
1 cup raw oat flakes
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/3 cup raw agave nectar
3 tsp pure vanilla extract
5 tbsp cacao nibs or dark chocolate chips
Process the almonds, walnuts, oats, cinnamon and salt to a fine meal.
Add the agave nectar and vanilla and process until blended.
Next, add the cocoa nibs (or chocolate chips) and pulse just to combine.
Roll the cookie dough into balls (1 tbsp) and place them on a cookie pan lined with parchment paper. Place the pan in the freezer for roughly an hour. Store in a container in the freezer.
P.S. You can use regular oats or gluten-free oats for this recipe but if you want this treat to really be raw, look for raw oat flakes, which haven't been steamed or toasted during processing.
