No Bake Cashew and Coconut Cookie Bites

No Bake Cashew and Coconut Cookie Bites

“These are delicious” says my sugar loving husband. WIN!

I adapted this from a Calgary Avansino recipe in an attempt to make them slightly more appealing to an adult pallet and to see if i could sneak some added nutrition in to them, it worked! 

These are a great balanced ‘grab and go’ treat/snack for the whole family. They could not be any easier or quicker to make and require no baking – they set in the fridge! 

I don’t eat regular ice cream anymore but they remind me of raw cookie dough so I can imagine they would go really well with some vanilla ice cream (note to self: post a refined sugar free ice cream recipie) to make a healthy take on the Ben & Jerry’s cookie dough. 

If coconut isn’t your thing, these will work without too.

Happy snacking!!
