Healthy Raw "Cookie dough" bites!

My family LOVES these things, and they are healthy and delicious!! You gotta give them a try. I used raw peanuts instead of walnuts, and it gave it a peanut butter taste to it!! MMMMM

  • 2/3 cup raw almonds
  • 2/3 cup raw walnuts
  • 2/3 cup raw oat flakes (see note below)
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup raw agave nectar or honey
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp cacao nibs or dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup coconut
  1. In a food processor, process the almonds, walnuts, oats, coconut,  cinnamon and salt to a fine meal.
  2. Add the agave nectar/or honey and vanilla and process to combine.
  3. Next, add the cocoa nibs (or chocolate chips) and pulse just to combine.
  4. Roll the cookie dough into balls (about 1 tbsp each) and place them on a cookie pan lined with parchment paper. Place the pan in the freezer for about an hour to firm up. Store balls in a tightly covered container in the freezer.
Raw oat flakes can be substituted for regular rolled oats (or certified gluten-free oats, if necessary), but if you want this treat to be truly raw, look for raw oat flakes, which haven't been steamed or toasted during processing.
