I don’t know what it is about autumn, but as soon as the weather starts to drop colder all I want to do is snuggle under a blanket, drink tea and eat cake! Anyone else get like this? I think maybe it’s some kind of natural urge to put on lots of blubber for winter!
Traditional cakes filled with loads of sugar tend to leave me feeling crappy afterwards, so I’ve been trying to satisfy my cravings with sweet treats that are also healthy and leave me feeling great.
They cookie dough bites have all the delicious flavours of chocolate chip cookies, and are super easy to make. I love no bakes – just bung a few ingredients in a food processor and these bad boys are ready to go.
These were a massive hit with my kids too, they practically inhaled them!
I’ve been so rubbish with posting recipes recently, life is pretty hectic with 3 under 4, but I’m starting to get a bit more organised now Marley is falling into a bit more of a routine. I’ll do a family update later this week to fill you in 😉
Enjoy, L x
No Bake Cashew Cookie Dough Bites
- 1 cup raw cashews
- Half a cup oats
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 3 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 large handful of chocolate chips
- Add cashews, oats, cinnamon and vanilla extract to a food processor and process for about a minute.
- Add maple syrup and vanilla and pulse until it all comes together.

- Make teaspoons of the mix into balls, pop on a plate and refrigerate to firm them up a bit.
