These are a great alternative to snacking on candy! They are sweet, nutty, rich and filling. Perfect to take on a short hike or picnic.

Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup raw, unsalted Cashew nuts
  • 2 - 3 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • ⅓ cup almond flour
  • ⅓ cup plain, shredded coconut

  • ½ cup chopped cranberries
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp water

Directions:

  1. Soak cashews in hot water for 15 minutes. Drain thoroughly.
  2. Blend cashews in high-speed blender, pausing to scrape the side of the blender, until they form a paste.
  3. Add 2 tbsp of melted coconut oil and blend again until you get a thick but smooth buttery consistency. If you need, add an additional tbsp of coconut oil.
  4. Combine with the almond flour, coconut, cinnamon, vanilla extract and water until you get a cookie dough texture. Gently fold in the cranberries.
  5. Scoop one tablespoon of mixture at a time and roll into balls. If you want, you may roll the balls in coconut to coat the outside.
