Healthy No-Bake Oreos

June 25, 2012

These no-bake Oreo cookies from Chocolate Covered Katie are a healthy alternative to the classic sandwich cookie.  Walnuts are pureed with cocoa powder and dates to form the "cookie" while coconut butter is the base for the filling.  The best part about these no-bake Oreo is you don't have to feel guilty eating them.

Ingredients:

1 cup walnuts (see nutrition link below, for substitutions) (120g)
1 and 1/3 cup pitted dates (I highly recommend Sunmaid, which are softer) (200g)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/8 tsp plus 1/16 tsp salt
3 tbsp regular cocoa powder (or Dutch-processed for more of a “cookie” taste)
coconut butter or raw cashew butter (see nutrition link below, for substitutions)
optional: sweetener of choice, if a sweeter filling is desired
