I wanted to bake a cake tonight. Lemon & poppyseed. I didn’t have any lemons left. Or poppyseeds. Then I lost interest in the cake idea, they do take a while to bake. I have no patience today. So, change of plan. Cookies. Actually cookie dough, or bake-free cookies if you like. You will like. They are fast, they are clean, they are sugar free, they are full of great healthy fats & protein. Splendid splendid no bake orange & almond cookies, or balls, you can make them balls, or just eat the dough out of the bowl. I totally didn’t do that.
1/2 cup almond meal
1 cup coconut butter ( if you don’t have this you could try1/2 cup coconut flour & 1/2 cup coconut oil- I have not tried this so not sure if it will be the same as the butter)
Juice & zest of 1 orange
Stevia to taste (or sweetener of your choice)
1/2 tsp vanilla powder or extract
1/4 cup chopped lightly toasted almond (optional)
1/2 cup flavorless (or vanilla) protein powder (you can use extra coconut flour if you don’t have this)
Add everything together in a bowl or food processor & mix well until completely combined. Should be a dough-like consistency. You can add a bit extra coconut/almond flour if it is too wet still. Spoon into your hand and shape into whatever you like and pop them in the freezer to set. I store mine in the freezer too but the fridge would be fine. I also baked a couple just for fun. 180C for about 10-15 mins.
Here’s the baked ones…
And the raw version…
