Talk about easy and quick snacks that remain rich in nutrients and are yummy and tasty and creamy and nutty and sweet!
I grew up in a house of snackers. We still do snack like crazy, and the saltier the better, cashew nuts reigned supreme in the nut snacking department, and they were covered in peri-peri or salt, or also as a sweet variety, in thick golden hard caramel. (Deeeeeeeelicious)
But onto healthier trends and options…raw cashews are packed with energy, antioxidants, minerals and vitamins, so in other words, a superseed with superseed powers to make you a superhuman!
This recipe is quick, easy and, like I’ve said, it has four ingredients.
2 cups of cashews
12 large dates, pitted
1 cup of dried strawberries
2 tablespoons of vanilla extract
In a food processors, add the cashews.
Pulse until fairly “chopped” up.
Now add the dates, one by one and keep the processor running, just work slowly, as the dates are tricky to get blended if you add then all at the same time. Now repeat the process with the strawberries. You will land up with a sticky crumbly cookie texture. Add the vanilla and give it one more mix.
Shape into little bite size balls with your hands and store in the fridge.
You could add about a 1/4 cup of coconut oil if you want, but I find that these are yummy and keep their shape really well.
They really do taste like raw shortbread cookie mix, which is a major bonus as these are made without any processed product!!!!! BONUS!
