Cookie Dough Balls
2/3 cups of rolled oats (gluten free)
2/3 cups of cashews
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract or 2 vanilla beans
2 teaspoons of honey or maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 cup chopped chocolate chunks, either purchase Raw Chocolate online here, or make the chocolate brownie recipe:
Chocolate brownie chunk:
1 ½ cups walnuts
1 cup dates (approximately 12)
⅓ cup raw cacao
1. Make the chocolate brownie chunk: Place in Vitamix, or other high powered blender for 30 seconds, or until it forms a ball. You can also make it without a blender, just mix all ingredients well in a bowl. You will have to get the dates smooth and moldable so use a mortar and pestle. Press into a baking tray. Freeze while you make the cookie dough balls.
2. Make the cookie dough balls, blend the cashews and oats in a food processor so it makes a ‘flour meal’ consistency. In a bowl add this blend, along with the vanilla, salt and honey and stir.
3. Take hte chocolate brownie chunks out of the freezer and cut them into small chunks, like a chocolate chip. Once all mixed add the chocolate brownie chunks. Add them to the cookie dough mixture and stir around.
4. Roll the mixture into balls.
5. Eat and enjoy! Keep in fridge.
