How to Make Raw Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites

Step 1: Prepare the Dry Ingredients

  1. Add the gluten-free oats, shredded coconut, cashews, almond meal, vanilla bean powder, collagen (if using), and sea salt into a food processor.
  2. Process the ingredients until they are well mixed, which should take about 60 seconds. You’ll have a fine, crumbly mixture.

Step 2: Incorporate the Wet Ingredients

  1. Next, add the raw honey and coconut butter to the mixture in the food processor.
  2. Process for 30-60 seconds until the mixture forms a dough-like consistency. It should be slightly sticky and easy to handle.

Step 3: Add the Cacao Nibs

  1. Transfer the dough to a mixing bowl.
  2. Gently fold in the cacao nibs. These will add a delightful crunch and bursts of chocolate flavor to your bites.

Step 4: Shape and Freeze

  1. Line a baking dish with parchment paper, ensuring it overhangs on the sides for easy removal.
  2. Press the dough firmly into the dish to create an even layer.
  3. Place the dish in the freezer for about 15 minutes to allow the bites to firm up.
  4. Once the bites are set, remove them from the freezer and use the parchment paper overhangs to lift the block of dough from the dish.
  5. Cut the frozen dough into 16 squares or your preferred bite-sized shapes.

Step 5: Store and Enjoy

  1. For convenient storage, individually wrap each square in wax or parchment paper.
  2. Place the wrapped squares in an airtight container.
  3. Store your Raw Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites in the freezer, which can last up to a month. Alternatively, please keep them in the refrigerator, which will stay fresh for about a week.

FAQ

Can I use different nuts in this recipe?

Absolutely! You can experiment with different nuts or a combination of them to suit your taste. Just be sure to maintain the total quantity specified in the recipe.

Is there a vegan alternative to honey?

You can use pitted and soaked dates as a natural sweetener instead of raw honey for a vegan-friendly version.

How should I store these Raw Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites?

Wrap each square in wax or parchment paper for optimal freshness and store them in an airtight container. They will last up to a month in the freezer, while in the refrigerator, they’ll stay fresh for about a week.

Will adding collagen make a difference in these Raw Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites?

Certainly! Collagen is a protein that can provide various benefits. While it won’t drastically change the taste of your cookie bites, it can enhance the nutritional profile. Collagen is known for its potential benefits for skin, hair, nails, and joint health. Adding a scoop of collagen to this recipe can be an easy and convenient way to incorporate it into your diet. However, it’s entirely optional, and the cookie bites will still be delicious and nutritious without it. Keep in mind that the collagen I used is plant-based. If you use an animal-based collagen, it may alter the taste ever so slightly. So, whether you include collagen or not, you’re in for a delightful treat!
