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 ohsheglows.com/2009/05/03/raw-chocolate-ch
• 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
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!
