3/4 pound raw cashews (raw versus roasted makes a difference for this!)
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
3 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1-2 tablespoons coconut crystals
1-2 teaspoons cinnamon
In a blender or food processor, chop cashews into a fine flour. Stream in a tablespoon of melted coconut oil until the flour comes together into a thick paste. Use a spatula to scrape the down the sides and ensure all the cashews get incorporated into the paste. Add the remaining coconut oil, the honey, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt. Blend to incorporate everything until it looks like cookie dough!
Measure out the coconut crystals and cinnamon and pour into a wide dish like a pie plate. Roll the cookie dough into balls the size of walnuts and roll each ball into the coconut crystal/cinnamon mixture until lightly coated on all sides. Makes about 16-18 cookie dough balls.
