Raw Cookie Dough Balls

I was inspired to make this recipe after seeing a Pin of it. While I didn’t worry about making it truly raw, it is easy enough to do – see the original recipe here (I’d suggest using cacao nibs and not chocolate chips as I did). Sweet and satisfying!

Raw Cookie Dough Balls

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup raw almonds
  • 2/3 cup raw walnuts
  • 2/3 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:

Add the nuts, oats, cinnamon and salt to a food processor or high-speed blender work bowl (I used my Ninja), process until a fine meal.

Add the agave and vanilla, process until thick.

Add in the chocolate chips, pulse a few times to mix in (I left my chips mostly full size).

Form 1 Tablespoon size balls (a Disher works well). Chill for an hour before enjoying, keep refrigerated for long-term storage, tightly wrapped.

Makes about 15 balls.

  1. These look delicious!

  2. Mmmm, yummy!

  3. I love these, I have these or similar snacks whist running biking or climbing instead of using processed sports supplements. The taste better than energy gells and protein bar and have to be better for you!

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
