No bake Raspberry Cashew Granola Cakes

by August 11, 2017

Pump up your healthy fats with this no bake treat! My favorite way to enjoy them is 1 minute out of the freezer as a super chewy and satisfying snack.

Prep Time:

Serves:

6

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup raw unsalted cashews or 1/2 cup cashew butter
  • 3/4 cup dried fruit of your choice
  • 1/4 cup fruit juice sweetened raspberry jam
  • 1/4 cup ground chia seed
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 3 tablespoon quinoa flakes or uncontaminated quick oats
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • rind from 1 lemon

Instructions

  1. Place cashews and coconut oil in the bowl of a processor and process until smooth. It will take about 6-8 minutes and you’ll have to scrape down the bowl a couple of times.
  2. Meanwhile, combine dried fruit, chia seed, coconut, and quinoa flakes in a large bowl.
  3. Once cashew butter is complete, add raspberry jam, vanilla, and lemon rind. Pulse to combine.
  4. Drop cashew mixture into dried fruit + nut bowl and stir until combined.
  5. Spoon mixture into large muffin liners or a muffin tin, pressing down firmly on each one, flattening with hands.
  6. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes to firm up.

Notes

To make paleo, or grain free, use ground nuts like almonds or extra coconut instead of quinoa flakes.
