Real Healthy Raw Cookie Dough Cups
Are we for real? Healthy raw cookie dough cups that you can eat as a meal?
We really mean it. You actually can put healthy and raw cookie dough in the same sentence and in the same recipe. You can PLAY in your kitchen and LOVE the results of our high vibe recipe.
This recipe turns the meaning of "real" on it's head. Most people consider that raw cookie dough cups would have to be filled with sugar and useless calories in order to taste good. We promise that this recipe will fool you. There's something very self loving about mindfully cooking up a healthy treat your your Divine self. For no other reason than because you are worthy of good stuff <3
So get in the kitchen and give it a try!
Using mini cup cake papers and 4 simple whole food ingredients you can whip up a delectable treat.
You probably have these 4 ingredients in your kitchen already.
TO MAKE THE DOUGH:
- 1/3 cup almond butter (or peanut butter - either works great)
- 1 can organic chick peas (also known as garbanzo beans)
- 1/3 cup organic maple syrup
- dash sea salt
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp flax
TO MAKE THE CHOCOLATE SHELL
8 oz dark chocolate bar
- bag of dark chocolate chips- sprinkle (or you can shave or chop some of your left over chocolate bar) Add these into the combined dough.
- raisins or cranberries or chopped date (totally optional and totally fun addition)
- Keeping it even realer... sprinkle in raw cacao nibs in place of the chocolate chips
Using a food processor, add in all ingredients, except the chocolate chips. Pulse until mixture forms a creamy cookie dough texture (about 3-4 minutes) After you have the mixture, you can add in the chocolate chips (or any other add-ons you are craving)
To make the chocolate filled cups:
1) Melt 1/2 cup chocolate chips in a double boiler. Line up cupcake papers in tray and spread 1 tbsp melted chocolate on the bottom of the cupcake paper. Remove chocolate from heat as you will reuse this pot later after filling the cups.
2) Place tray in freezer for 20 minutes until chocolate is hardened.
3) Scoop approx 1/2 tbsp of cookie dough into the cup on top of chocolate. Continue until you have put dough into each cup.
4) Melt another 3/4 cup chocolate chips (this will be for the top of the cups). Spoon 1 tablespoon of melted chocolate over the tops of the cups. Use more if necessary to cover the dough.
5) Return tray to freezer and freeze for 1 hour. Once the cups are frozen remove from cupcake tray and place the chocolate cups in a freezer safe container. When ready to eat, remove from freezer and allow to soften for a few minutes before eating.
Oh! These are so fabulously yummy and gorgeous. Perfect for Valentine's Day, Birthday, Holiday, or a random Self Loving Day.
One more important point. If, like us, you have major cookie dough "issues", you might forgo the chocolate cup idea and simply use a spoon (or a BOWL! )
