After draining the cashews, blend them with the strawberries, coconut oil, maple syrup and lemon juice to a thick and creamy consistency.

Remove the mini ‘biscuit’ bases from the freezer and top with the fruity mixture.

Place back into the freezer for 1-2 hours, this allows the fruit mixture to solidify.

➺ Guilt-Free Choc Chip Cookies

Makes: 12-15 Cookies

 You’ll Need …

  • 1 Large Egg
  • 340g Quick Oats
  • 255g Whole Wheat Flour
  • 170g Raw Honey
  • 1 ½ Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 1 ½ Tablespoon Cinnamon
  • 100g Dark Chocolate Chips

 

After pre-heating the oven to 150° – mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl. In a separate bowl, gently melt coconut oil. Once slightly cooled, add the egg and honey and stir well.

Now incorporate all wet and dry ingredients together and mix along with the chocolate chips until it forms a ‘dough’.

Wrap the dough in film and freeze for 15 minutes. After the dough has firmed, roll into bite-sized balls and place onto a lined baking tray into the oven for 12-13 minutes or until golden brown.

If you can’t wait (like us) then these cookies are irresistible straight from the oven when warm and gooey! But they’re also the perfect midday snack and totally guilt-free!
