Raw Vegan Cookie Dough Bites

I’ve said it before that desserts are my absolute favorite form of creation. But these treats aren’t just delicious, they are very much in alignment with the LSN Philosophy. These Raw Vegan Cookie Dough Bites are high in fiber, contain healthy fats and are simple to make. They are gluten-free, dairy-free, free of refined sugars and my favorite guilt-free. Just saying, these are absolutely awesome!

And if they couldn’t get more awesome, these raw cookie dough balls can also be cooked, turning into a sweet but healthy, chocolate chip cookie. How cool is that? Pretty awesome right! So whatever you are in the mood for, this recipe is it. Just pop some in the oven and you got the best of both worlds.

For this recipe, I used Enjoy Life Mini Chips, but this recipe is also great with cacao nibs. I have tried them both and the mini chocolate chips are sweeter but both are good. Use whichever one fits your lifestyle

What I love about this recipe is the cashews, they are high in proteins and essential minerals including copper, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc. They are a good source of healthy dietary fats, which are essential for our body to absorb the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K and produce fatty acids that are vital for the development of the brain and blood clotting. The magnesium in cashews helps in maintaining a healthy blood pressure level and is a good source of iron which is vital for carrying out oxygen to the body. Plus they are naturally sweet which makes them perfect to use in this recipe.
