2. No Bake Raspberry Cookies

5 Minuate No Bake Raspberry Cookies

Taking 5 minutes to create these are a no-brainer to make at Christmas time. The sweet raspberries will satisfy any sugar cravings your little ones have.

  • 1/2 cup raw cashews (60 grams)
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup (45 mls)
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, liquified (30 mls)
  • 1/3 cup frozen raspberries (72 grams)

Method

  1. Blitz oats, cashews, maple syrup and coconut oil until combined. (Don’t over blitz as you want them to still have some texture).
  2. Add raspberries and blitz for a few seconds as you still want some pieces of raspberry and not have them completely broken down.
  3. Use a spoon to fold the raspberries through the mixture.
  4. Add heaped tablespoons of mixture onto baking tray and pop into the freezer to set for a few hours.
  5. Eat straight from the freezer or store to eat later.

Chocolate-Pretzel-Stacks

Chocolate cravings covered! These pretzel snacks only have 3 ingredients so your kids can easily help and add in extras too. Robyn says, “I make these with my kids, at Christmas though I adapted this recipe and added peanuts (you could also add dried cranberries) and let it set in a slice tray. Once set, it breaks really well into Christmas Bark. This one makes an excellent handmade Christmas gift too.”
