Raw Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

I’m a bit of a Pinterest addict these days. It’s become an incredible source for discovering new recipes and recently I came across quite a few different pins for vegan cookie dough- needless to say, my curiosity was piqued. On the same night that my friend came over for a veggie pasta cooking lesson, I decided that I would also throw this super simple sweet snack into the mix, both to prove to her how easy it can be to make dessert, and to curb my chocolate craving. I was skeptical that dough made out of cashews and oats would taste anything close to the cookie dough that we all crave from time to time. It turns out, this healthy dough tastes extremely similar. Despite being full from pasta, we downed all of these little guys (we made a small batch). ┬áHere is the recipe for the healthy version of everyone’s secret guilty pleasure…

Recipe from www.loveveggiesandyoga.com
2/3 c raw cashews
1/3 c oats
2 Tbsp Agave
1 Tbsp Maple Syrup
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 c Chocolate Chips

Combine oats and cashews in food processor and blend until crushed into a flour. Add the agave, maple syrup, and vanilla extract and blend again to form a dough. Mix in the chocolate chips and shape into small balls.
