No-bake cold cashew-chocolate-cookies

I just made one of my favourite sweet things: cashew-chocolate-cookies!

They might not look that amazing but trust me - they are! This is one of those recipes where you just mix things until you think it tastes good, therefore there aren't any real measurements, but don't let that frighten you! 

First you make chocolate chips my mixing heated coconut oil, raw (or regular) cacao powder, agave nectar and pure vanilla powder. Pour the mixture in a tray lined with a baking sheet, and pop in the freezer for 15 minutes. If it isn't solid yet, leave it a bit longer. Cut up into chips and use. 

While the chocolate mixture sets in the freezer, make the dough. Grind cashew nuts in a blender (i use 2 big handfuls), adding coconut oil, vanilla powder, agave syrup and oats when the nuts are completely ground to cashew meal. I tend to add 2-3 big tbsp of oats, 2 tbsp of coconut oil, 2-3 tbsp agave and 1/8 tsp vanilla powder, but as I said just play around with it. Blend some more, until you have a cookie dough texture. Add more of anything needed - make sure to taste it! Mix the chocolate chips into the dough and form into cookies or balls. Pop in the freezer again for 15-20 minutes and eat :-)

This is so easy, and kids can definitely join you in the kitchen!
