Spiced Cookie Dough

A few weeks ago, I participated in the Great Food Blogger Cookie swap (where I made these cookies) and received some incredible cookies from bloggers across the country. This spiced cookie dough is inspired by the spiced snickerdoodles I received from Bree over at BakedBree.com. I absolutely love the beautiful combination of spices and I wanted to incorporate that flavor into a fun cookie dough recipe.

This spiced cookie dough is a fun alternative to baked cookies – it does not need to be baked and can be enjoyed as a dessert or snack. It is packed full of healthy foods such as cashews, dates and almond butter. It is a vegan recipe but those with nut allergies should be wary because there are lots of nuts in here. This spiced cookie dough is a great way to fit in healthy fats and protein, but like all cookies/cookie doughs, have them sparingly and don’t go crazy!

Ingredients
  1. 4 pitted medjool dates
  2. 1/2 cup cashews (plain, not salted)
  3. 1 tbsp almond butter
  4. 1 tbsp cashew milk
  5. 2-3 tbsp dark chocolate chips (really a matter of preference)
  6. 1 tsp vanilla extract
  7. 1/4 tsp allspice
  8. 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  9. 1/4 tsp cardamon
Instructions
  1. Simply put all of the ingredients (EXCEPT for the dark chocolate chips) into a food processor and pulse until smooth - may take up to 5 minutes depending on how strong your food processor is.
  2. Here's the fun part: Roll the cookie dough in your dark chocolate chips (they are so sticky so you may end up losing some dough) and then roll into 4-5 small balls.
  3. Eat, enjoy and tag me on social media if you make them πŸ™‚
Notes
  1. Reduce spices to 1/8 tsp if you find the flavor a bit too overwhelming.
