The easiest and most healthful way to satisfy a craving for cookie dough. Simply blitz these 6 (+salt) wholesome ingredients in your food processor, roll in shredded coconut, and you’re good to go! This is a great fuss-free party pleaser as well if you are getting together with friends this weekend and want a healthy sweet treat to share. Enjoy!


  • ¾ cup raw cashews
  • ½ cup gluten free rolled oats
  • ½ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 medjool dates, pitted and soaked in hot water
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate chips or raw cacao nibs


  1. Line a plate with parchment paper and set it aside.
  2. Combine the cashews, oats, coconut flakes, and salt in a food processor or Vitamix. Pulse until a fine meal forms.
  3. Add the soaked dates (make sure they are pitted!), 3 tablespoons of the water the dates have been soaked in, and the vanilla extract. Pulse again until the mixture becomes a dough like consistency.
  4. Remove the dough and place it in a small bowl. Gently fold in the chocolate chips until they are incorporated into the dough mixture.
  5. Use two spoons to portion out the dough into twelve balls. With clean hands, roll into balls.
  6. Then, on a piece of parchment paper, roll into more coconut flakes as a topping. Once rolled in coconut, roll them again with your hands so that coconut sticks to the dough. Enjoy immediately, or store in the freezer for later!
