Raw Cookie Dough Bites

A wonderful, quick and easy dessert recipe everyone will love. The original recipe calls for walnuts. We like them either way, just make sure to ask guests if they have any nut allergies before serving.


2/3 cup raw almonds
2/3 cup raw macadamia nuts
2/3 cup raw oat flakes
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp sea salt
1/4 cup raw agave nectar
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
3 tbsp cacao nibs or dark chocolate chips

In a food processor, mix the almonds, macadamia nuts, oats, cinnamon and salt to a fine meal. Incorporate the agave nectar and vanilla.

Add the cocoa nibs (or chocolate chips) and pulse just to combine.

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 in freezer.
