How This Nourishes Your Body
It is time for some Raw Cookie Dough.
I am always on the lookout for desserts I can eat and feel good about. Especially all things cookie dough, cake batter, any kind of batter or dough really. Which is why I love these little nuggets. Super easy to make. Gluten free, dairy free, grain free, and redefined sugar free.
Sweeter fruits like dates/bananas/melons have become my go to dessert treats. I have typically has been just eating low glycemic fruits like berries, green apples, kiwi, and grapefruit. This has given me so much more energy, and been amazing for my mood and hormones. Why? Stable blood sugar = stable hormones = happy body and mind.
Raw Cookie Dough
When I do eat higher sugar fruits, I always pair it with a healthy fat to slow the metabolism of the sugar in the body. Which is why the coconut in these is the perfect combination, both for taste AND health. Boom.
Love keeping these in the freezer for times I am in need of a little pick me up.
1. Put the cashews or walnuts and coconut into a high-speed blender or food processor and blend until they are very small pieces.
2. Then add in the dates, coconut oil, vanilla and salt and blend to combine. You may need to stop the blender to stir the mixture to make sure all pieces are breaking down.
3. Take the mixture and place in a bowl. Use your hands to fold in the chocolate chips so they spread evenly.
4. Take a tablespoon of the cookie dough and roll around in your palms, forming a ball. Store balls in freezer or fridge.
