I’m always on the search for delicious yet nutrient dense desserts that won’t fill me up with tons of sugar and leave me in a fit of self loathing. The answer: a raw frozen banana and cashew peanut butter cup. It is so satisfying and so good for you! Full of tons of protein, fiber and potassium. And easy enough for anyone who can run a blender.
Yield: 6 cups
1/2 C peanut butter
1/4 C ground flaxseed
1 C oats
2 Tbs water
2 ripe bananas
3/4 raw cashews
1/3 C coconut oil
1/4 C lemon juice
2 tsp vanilla extract
Boil water, pour over dates, let soak for 15 min. Drain.
Do the same for cashews, let soak for 30 min, drain.
Place drained dates into blender or processor, add all crust ingredients until well combined.
Ball into 6 portions and put in plastic wrapped lined muffin tins. Shape into cups with hands, chill while you make filling.
Place all filing ingredients as long with drained cashews into blender, blend on high until very creamy and smooth.
Pour into cups and freeze for at least an hour before serving.
Garnish with cinnamon and berries if desired.
