Raw Cookie Dough Bites

Another great Pinterest recipe that I will make often!  I’ve made it twice in 2 weeks already.

Now, I made the mistake of calling it cookie dough to my girls because they were expecting super duper sweet and creamy cookie dough. 2 of the 3 were disappointed with the results, but my youngest and I LOVE THEM. They are somewhat sweet, but there is some texture to them.  I love that there is a touch of sweet, a touch of salt, and the texture makes me very happy.  They mix up in minutes, no baking, and are a great fix for when I want a treat.  They are unrefined, whole grain, and no sugar!  Whoop!!

Raw Cookie Dough Bites
{adapted from A Dash Of Compassion}

2/3 cup raw walnuts
2/3 cup raw almonds {my second batch, I used ALL raw cashews instead of almonds and walnuts. Yum!}
2/3 cup oats
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 cup raw agave nectar {I used honey, was out of agave}
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
4 Tbls mini chocolate chips, or cocoa nibs {I used vegan dark chocolate chips}

In a food processor, process nuts, oats, cinnamon and salt to a fine meal.

Add agave (or honey) and vanilla and process to combine.  Add chocolate chips, and process to combine.

Roll into balls (about 1 Tbls each).  Store in refrigerator.


I like to use my small cookie scoop, then my hands to roll into balls.  It keeps them very uniform.

    They’re delicious – I made a batch to try and then immediately scoured my pantry for any remaining ingredients to make two more batches. the last two had about half the nectar per my husband’s request, but were still every bit as delicious.

    How do you think pecans would taste instead of walnuts? I usually only keep pecans around.

    Do you soak your nuts first?
