I have a sweet treat to share with you all today! I rolled these babies up last night to share with my brothers and boys at work today. I wanted everyone to have a little something sweet, but wasn’t about to supply this place with crappy, sugary candy. We have work to do, can’t have any sugar high crashes. Plus, these treats are packed with lots of good-for-you stuff, hellopumpkin, chia seed, flax-seed, almonds. They are vegan, refined sugar-free, and gluten-free (if made with GF oats). Oh, and toss in the oats, could possibly be a sweetbreakfast, right?!
So roll some of these up today, or whenever They are super yummy and easy. And it’s always nice to have some healthy treats around (since we all indulge a little, which isn’t wrong) during these Holiday times.
You will need:
3/4 cup pitted dates, about 8
1/2 cup raw or slightly roasted almonds, unsalted
1 tbsp agave
1 tbsp flax-seed
1 tbsp chia seed
1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
pinch of salt
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
3/4 cup GF rolled oats
1/4-1/2 cup oat flour. Start with 1/4 and add more if needed
In a food processor, pulse the dates until very well chopped. Add the almonds and pulse a few more times. Toss in the rest of the ingredients and pulse a few times. Do not over pulse! Just a few will do. Remove and place in medium bowl. Hand mix until combined. Refrigerate for about a half hour, it’s easier to roll after refrigeration. Remove and roll into little balls and enjoy a couple. Keep refrigerated if not eaten!
Aren’t these little cookies adorable? Maybe that’s not the right word, but cute little balls of cookie yumminess are adorable to me.
After seeing how fast my Raw Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookieswent, I realized my family and boy were actually bigger fans of raw and or healthy desserts than I was going to give them credit. Totally inspired me to get in the kitchen and try some other stuff. Plus, with peanut butter you don’t really need anything too sweet so I was able to completely eliminate sugar. So these little adorable babies are not only delicious, they are vegan, raw, gluten-free, and sugar-free. Score, score, score!!!

A chocolate chip cookie recipe, I know, it’s one of the most vanilla baking recipes I could post. But these babies are so yummy, warm and spicy with the toasted walnuts, oat flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg. And even though the dough needs to chill for at least 12 hours, they are definitely worth a try for a sweet twist on a plain old chocolate chip cookie!
