Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

Ingredients
  • 1⅓ cup raw cashews
  • 1⅓ cup raw walnuts
  • 1⅓ cup gluten-free old fashioned oats
  • 24 soaked dates*
  • 2 teaspoons date juice
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons mini vegan chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. In a food processor, combine cashews, walnuts, oats, and salt and pulse for about 30 seconds until fine. Place in a large bowl and set aside.
  2. In a food processor, add dates, date juice, and vanilla extract and pulse for a few seconds. Using a spatula, push dates down from the sides of the processor and pulse a few more seconds (dates will be chunky).
  3. Add date mixture and chocolate chips to nut/ oat mixture and stir until well combined. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Run hands under water if you experience dough sticking to your hands. Chill for at least 20 minutes before serving. Extra bites can be frozen.
Notes
* To soak dates, place in a small bowl and add enough water to cover dates. Allow dates to soak at room temperature for 24 hours.
