Well, I'm glad someone else said it!

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

The original recipe that Angela modified said this about the batter:

Cookie Batter
1 3/4 cups cashew "flour"
3/4 cup ground oat groats** (or use all cashew flour for a much sweeter dough)**
1/4 cup agave nectar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup melted coconut oil

So, you could probably use flaked coconut, coconut flour or just go with the cashew flour

It doesn't say what the cashew "flour" is ...I guess it is just taking the cashews and putting them into the food processor.

If you try these, I'd love to know what you think.

That looks like a very interesting and tasty recipe for sure. I wonder if flaked coconut would substitute for the oats. I'm trying to stay away from grains. They are my downfall.

Haven't tried these yet, but am looking forward to trying them. I like making my own chips! Of course the recipe is from my Angela over at Oh She Glows

e-chip-cookies/


Ingredients:
Cookie dough:
• 1 3/4 cups ground raw cashews
• 3/4 cup ground raw oats
• 1/4 cup Agave Nectar
• 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1/4 cup coconut oil

Raw chocolate chips:
• 2 Tablespoon coconut oil
• 1/2 cup carob powder
• 1/2 cup cocoa powder
• 4 T agave nectar (or maple syrup probably works)
• 2 teaspoon vanilla


Directions:
Dough: Grind up raw cashews and raw oats in a food processor or blender. Place all cookie dough ingredients into a large bowl and mix by hand or with a spoon. OR simply place all ingredients in the processor and blend (why didn’t I do this!? lol). Mix until a dough forms and you can make a large ball. Refrigerate dough while you make the chocolate chips.


Chips: Mix all chocolate chip ingredients together in a medium sized bowl. Roll the dough out onto parchment paper and place in the freezer for about 30 minutes. Optional: Half way through at 15 mins., flip the chocolate sheet over for even freezing.
When chocolate is frozen, cut into chips. This is the fun part! I used a pastry slicer and it was SO fun making the chips.


Mix chips into dough and have fun!
Place in fridge (if you have any left that is) to harden for about 30 mins. They get real hard! Make sure to refrigerate them on parchment paper or they will stick to the plate.
Notes: If you don’t have carob powder you can substitute it for cocoa powder just as easily. Alternatively, you may be able to sub the agave nectar for maple syrup or honey. If you try this and it turns out let me know!
