Cookie Monster

Who doesn’t love sneaking a big scoop of raw cookie dough from the mixing bowl?? Ah, the childhood memories. Well, now you can have the yummy dough on its own in a much healthier form! You’re welcome 😉

Goodbye, sugar! You’re NOT the star of this cookie dough. You’re not even on the ingredient list. Neither are any of the conventional cookie ingredients. So what in the world are they made of??…



Brought to you by the magic of….

Cashews!! Yes, they’ve done it again. I’m constantly amazed by the wonders of this humble little nut. Mildly flavored, and slightly sweet on its own. Ultra creamy and smooth…. I love you, cashew butta!

Simply stir in a little sweetener & coconut flour, and you have an EASY, delicious little treat full of FIBER. Yes, fiber.

You can even add CHOCOLATE. For this batch, I added just a couple spoonfuls of chocolate shavings. But you can also use chocolate chips, or leave them out. Either way, I LOVE THEM.

GOOD NEWS

You can make these LOW CARB. Can I get a Hallelujah? lol. I tested this recipe with both STEVIA and MAPLE SYRUP and they’re both equally amazing. So the choice is yours!

With simple healthy ingredients (and sugar-free options) these decadent truffles can be enjoyed by many different diets– vegan, paleo, keto, low-carb, dairy-free, gluten-free, egg-free, and grain-free. You can also make these nut-free using sunflower butter! (although the flavor will be less cookie-flavored.

So YOU get cookie dough, and YOU get cookie dough, and YOU GET COOKIE DOUGH. I’m having an Oprah moment here. I can’t help it. They’re just so dang good. You’ve gotta make some! Be sure to tag me on FB or Insta so I can see your pretty creations 🙂

Recipe Notes

What I used:

I made homemade cashew butter by blending 2 cups of raw cashews in a food processor until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed. You can also use store-bought (just check the labels for added sugar and such)

Keep refrigerated in an air-tight container. Should last 1-2 weeks in the fridge. Can also be frozen (but if you use maple syrup, they will need to thaw a little first)

Make your own chocolate coating! Simply mix together these ingredients in a small bowl:

3 Tbs coconut oil, melted
2 Tbs cacao
1 Tbs cashew milk
8 drops sweet leaf vanilla stevia drops OR 2 tsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla
Dash of pink salt
