Cashew, Coconut and Date Cookies
This is a quick cookie recipe to whip up, using only four ingredients and no need to switch the oven on.
These are a great little Festive treat too, just add a little grating of orange zest and a pinch of cinnamon. Roll into balls. Cover in raw chocolate and store in the freezer, ready to pull out when you have guests or as a healthy treat to go with your favourite festive drink. Yum!!!
1 cup cashew nuts
6 medjool dates, pitted.
6 tbsp coconut butter
2 tbsp coconut oil
Place the cashew nuts, pitted dates and coconut butter in your food processor. Blitz until finely chopped. Add in 2 tbsp coconut oil and process briefly until mixture comes together when pressed.
Roll into balls and press into round cookie shapes. Store in the fridge to harden.
Dip or drizzle in raw chocolate (I like mine completely covered in chocolate).
I like to use the raw chocolate recipe below
