Raw chocolate chip cookies
Are you guys ready for some healthy cookies?! Who am I kidding, I know you are! Haha you seem to love anything cookie related (the page views always go crazy) and I certainly get why, I am a huge cookie fan myself! I think I actually like cookies more than cake – so that means a lot! These yummy cookies are actually based on two of my previous cookie dough recipes – find them right here and here! They are among some of my all time favorite recipes, but I wanted to give them a little makeover to give them a more classical dessert look, which also make them a bit more suited to be served for guests. Don’t they look cute? I definitely think I have succeeded in prettifying my earlier recipes a little + I think I have managed to combine the best of both the recipes into one even yummier cookie dough recipe! Ah I really love this one! ❤︎
I have to point out that they are not raw as in the whole raw food sense, what I mean is raw as in they are not baked, the cookies consist of the raw unbaked cookie dough but in cookie shape – and yes it tastes just as amazing as it sounds, cookie dough is the best! Oh and this is a vegan version, so there is of course no need to worry about salmonella or anything of the sort ;)
Ingredients – 14 cookies:
2 deciliter (equals 0.8 cup) cashews, unsalted
1 deciliter (equals 0.4 cup) rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla powder
1/3 teaspoon sea salt
16 dates, pitted
40 grams of dark chocolate, chopped – I used one with 70% cacao
Start by placing the cashews, oats, vanilla powder and sea salt in a food processor and pulse until the cashews and oats have turned into flour. Then add in the dates and pulse until everything is well mixed and the dates have turned the mixture into a sticky cookie dough. Fold in the chopped dark chocolate with a spoon. Roll out the cookie dough and use a cookie cutter to make 14 little raw cookies, place them in a container lined with baking paper and put it in the freezer for 15-30 minutes to allow the cookies to set. And you are done, enjoy!
Note: I prefer to store the cookies in the freezer until just before serving to make them chewier.
