Peanut Butter Cashew Cookie Bites

My Chocolate Chocolate Chip Coconut Bites have been so popular (both in my apartment & with readers), & they are so yummy, that I decided I needed to create another flavor. These little gems of rawness are sweet and oh-so satisfying and not at all naughty. They will make your skin glow & your tummy smile! And Shhh! but I think they taste even better than larabars.

  • 20 Medjool dates
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1 tablespoon raw peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup raw peanuts
  • 1/4 teaspoon gluten free vanilla extract or fresh scraped vanilla pod

  1. Pulse the dates in a food processor until they become a sticky dough like consistency.
  2. Add the peanut butter and vanilla to the dough and blend until fully combined.
  3. Add the nuts, and pulse again a few times, until they are evenly blended through. Don't over process, you want them still a bit crunchy. They aren't as fun to eat if the nuts are processed too finely.
  4. Transfer the dough to a bowl for the fun part, messy (& a tiny bit sticky)... but fun! Break of small chunks of the dough and roll them into bite size balls, placing them on a baking sheet.
  5. Refrigerate until set.
  6. Enjoy! :)

Like these? Why not turn them into Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Cashew Cookie Bites by adding 2 tablespoons raw cocoa powder to the food processor with the peanut butter.
