Raw Frozen Cookie Dough Bites (Vegan, GF)

If I had to be certain about one thing in this world, it would be this raw chocolate chip cookie recipe from Oh She Glows. Every time I make it, even if I vary or substitute certain ingredients, it always turns out ah-mazingly.
Jenn and I have made this recipe soo many times we had to change it up, behold: The Raw Frozen Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bite. I promise, these will not disappoint. My absolute favourite raw sweet so far!

Still Life Choco

Dough:

1 3/4 cup cashews ground into a flour (don't soak unless you are able to dehydrate them)
3/4 cup oat flour
2 tbsp agave
2 tbsp maple syrup
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup coconut oil
Pinch of salt

Raw Chocolate Chips:

2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup carob powder
1/2 cup raw cacao powder
4 tbsp agave nectar/maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract

Chocolate Coating:

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup raw cacao powder
2 tbsp agave nectar
1 tsp vanilla extract

First prepare raw chocolate chips by combining above ingredients, you will be left with a doughy consistency. Spread out on a flat pan or plate and put in freezer for at least an hour. Then, cut into small chips.
Next, prepare the cookie dough filling by combining above ingredients, then mixing in chocolate chips. Then form into a flat slab about 1/2 inch thick and freeze for 15 minutes. Once frozen, cut into small bar sizes (enough to take 2-3 bites out of it) and skewer each one with a small toothpick.
Prepare chocolate coating by combining all ingredients in a small bowl.
One by one, dip each bite into chocolate, place on a flat tray and freeze for 1-2 minutes. Dip again in chocolate and top with chopped cashews, or other desired topping. Freeze until frozen. Makes 24 bites.

  7. These look amazing, any ideas for replacing the oat flour. I can't have it but would love to make these.

  8. @K: You could replace the oat flour with coconut flour, or even almond flour. Remember that coconut flour is a bit salty (I know weird eh?) So if you use it, omit the pinch of salt. Good Luck! :)
