No Bake Oatmeal Cookies

Sometimes it's just too hot to bake, but sometimes you still want delicious cookies. No worries, there's a solution:
And they are delicious! A bit on the sweet side, I might down the agave a bit next batch, but still addictingly good! They are gluten free and vegan to boot, bonus points! And they couldn't be simpler to make.

Raw Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites
recipe by: Averie Cooks
2/3 c raw cashews
1/3 c oats
2 Tbsp Agave
1 Tbsp Maple Syrup (Omit and use Agave to preserve true Raw Status if you care)
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 c Chocolate Chips (or to preserve true raw status, take 2 Tbsp Raw Cocoa Powder and add 1 Tbsp Agave, optional dash of vanilla extract, whisk and blend.  Spread into a thin layer on wax or parchment paper, freeze.  Take frozen chocolate off parchment and crumble the shreds into the mixture as your raw “chips”.)
Recipe Yields: Approximately 17 Cookie Dough Balls

To make: Place the oats and cashews in a food processor until they form a powder, add in agave/maple syrup/ vanilla and blend till combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Place in fridge to firm up a bit and then roll into balls. Done and Done!
