Cookie Dough Balls

IMG_1383
Ingredients

  • 1 Cup of Cashews (150g)
  • 3 Tablespoons of Melted Coconut Oil
  • 1-2 Tablespoons of Honey/Maple Syrup
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of Vanilla Powder
  • Pinch of Coarse Salt
  • 30g of Cacao Nibs or Dark Chocolate (min 70%)

These are shockingly tasty, it’s crazy how few ingredients there are! They really, truly taste like cookie dough but they’re mostly made of nutritious cashews so they’re a great source of healthy fats, magnesium and calcium. This batch barely lasted till the end of the photography and were gobbled up the second the camera stopped flashing. They’re one of the yummiest and easiest treats! Make sure not to leave out the vanilla or salt.

Preheat the oven to 180’C. Roast the cashews at 180’C for about 8 minutes until golden.

When the cashews are cool enough to handle, add them to your food processor and blend on high. Keep blending, scraping down the sides as needed, until you have a very fine cashew flour. Add in the vanilla powder and salt and continue blending until it is so fine that it is starting to stick together like the very early stage of cashew butter.

Drizzle in the melted coconut oil and maple syrup. Blend on high until you have a smooth mixture, when you pinch it between your fingers it should stick together.

Transfer the mixture to a bowl. Add in the cacao nibs or chopped chocolate, mixing them into the cashew mixture.

Use your hands to roll the mixture into balls.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge.

    We continue to search for recipes for sweets that don’t use nuts or bananas in the recipe, as family is allergic to both.
    Any suggestions are REALLY appreciated. Thank you!

    Hi,
    I don’t have any vanilla essence but I have vanilla powder. Would one teaspoon of this work well in the recipe?
