Lately, my desserts have been a rotation of raw treats.
I previously thought I was allergic to cashews, but after a series of allergy testing, including IgG, IgE, and IgA panels, that didn’t show any reaction, I have added them back into my diet on a limited basis. Though I often see them referred to as a nut, they are actually a seed. They grow out of the bottom of cashew apples, which is not exactly a fruit, but rather an accessory to a fruit, similar to a tentacle on a strawberry.
I love these frozen, but my husband enjoys them at room temperature. Either way, they make a delicious and healthy treat!
- ½ c. raw cashews, ground into flour
- ½ c. oats, ground into flour
- 1 T. + 2 t. maple syrup
- 2 T. coconut oil
- ⅛ t. sea salt
- ¾ t. vanilla
- 3 T. chocolate chips (homemade, cacao nibs, or chopped dark chocolate)
- Stir all of the ingredients together until well combined.
- Form six cookies.
- Place on a wax paper-lined plate and freeze or refrigerate until set.
I used homemade chocolate chips, but to make these easier, just use pre-made cacao nibs or chopped dark chocolate.
I use my coffee grinder to make the cashews and oats into flour, making these that much easier to put together. As much as I love using my food processor, I hate cleaning it!
Do you make raw desserts often? If so, what’s your favorite?
