TOTAL TIME :10minutes
19-20bites
INGREDIENTS
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups raw cashews
  • 1 1/2 cups pitted Medjool dates (buy with pit-in)
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8th teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon butter (optional or can sub vegan butter)
DIRECTIONS
  1. Roughly chop chocolate chips into smaller pieces. Set aside.
  2. Combine cashews and dates in a food processor and process until they form a sticky crumble, approximately 1 minute. Add vanilla extract, baking soda, sea salt and butter, if using. Pulse until mixture becomes even chunkier and sticks together when pressed, approximately another 30 seconds.
  3. Add mixture to a large mixing bowl and use clean hands to mix in chocolate chips--this will take a little elbow grease, as the chips will have a tendency to fall out back into the bowl.
  4. Form dough into balls of whatever size you like and place on a baking sheet or large plate. I make mine around 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Enjoy immediately and keep leftovers tightly sealed in the refrigerator up to 1 week. My favorite way to eat these is to microwave them for 15 seconds so the chocolate gets a little gooey...don't judge me!

    They look delicious. I am not a cashew fan. Is there another option? thanks

    • Hey Desiree! I think that plain unsalted macadamia nuts would be a good option, as well as blanched almonds (no skin). Let me know if either of those works for you!

    Girl….you’ve done it again! These little morsels are so yummy and decadent! You’re 2 for 2 when it comes to recreating our household favorite sweet treats! When I see you at Sanctuary I will have to give you a hug!

    • Hi Jodi!!!! YAY!!!! I am so glad the CCC Dough Bites were a success with the whole family. That makes my day. And I LOVE hugs!!! Hug away!

    Yum! I added Chia seeds to half of the mixture for me and added half natural dye m&m (trader joe’s brand) candies for my toddler boys.

    • Omg that is the cutest idea EVER, you are a super mom!!!! I hope other people see this comment and are inspired; thank you so much for sharing! Also great to know that chia works as an add-in!

    Seriously? You have got to be a genius! I have tried different versions of these for years as I love cookie dough. But you have done it! Never have any of the recipes replaced cookie dough in my heart but now I have a very special treat! Now not to eat it all in one sitting! 🙂 Thanks girl!
