I had a fit of late night baking, as I have been a little slack in the new recipe department (on here...been manic elsewhere!) and this is the rather delicious result. I had everthing on hand and I have to say almost any nut or seed would suffice, but don’t take my word for it, give them a whirl.
Best of all, come join us on the Insider Club to have extra Thermomixery each and every month! #recipesthatwork #youcandoit
- 300 Grams cashews
- 50 Grams Coconut Sugar
- 30 Grams honey
- 1 large egg
- 1 Teaspoon baking powder
- 2 Teaspoons Vanilla Bean Paste BUY
- Pinches Pink Salt Flakes BUY
- 30 Grams Shredded Coconut BUY
- 100 Gram dried Cherries or cranberries
Place cashews onto a paper lined tray and into a cold oven set to 200°C. Toast for 10 minutes. Remove nuts from oven and cool slightly. Reduce oven temperature to 170°C.
Place 250g of the roasted cashews into Thermomix bowl and blend 30 sec/speed 10 stopping to scrape down sides of bowl as needed.
Add sugar and honey and bend 10 sec/speed 8.
Add egg, baking powder, vanilla and salt and blend 10 sec/speed 8.
Add remaining cashews and coconut. Blend 6 sec/speed 6.
Stir cherries or craisins through using your spatula. Scrape mixture out of the Thermomix bowl and place into the fridge for 10-15 minutes.
Scoop mixture into tablespoon sized balls onto a lined tray approximately 10-12 cm apart.
Bake 10 minutes until golden and fragrant. Cool on baking tray before transferring to wire rack.
I added 50g cacao nibs with the cherries, you could add the same amount of chocolate chips as desired.
