Wild Maine Blueberry Simple Syrup


Here we are. The end of August. How did that happen so quickly??

I mean, I want a baked good. To be perfectly clear, I want an oatmeal cookie.

But again. How do I do this without turning the oven on?

For a while now I have been playing around with no bake cookie bites or protein bites and this is a good one. These No Bake Oatmeal Cookie Bites have that warmth from cinnamon, are full of oats, include protein from cashew butter, and are refined sugar free, if you choose to use a sugar substitute or use coconut palm sugar. Done in 5 minutes, it beats turning the oven on in that 95+ degree weather.

Makes 10-12 bites

Shopping List

  • 1.5 cups of unsalted cashews

  • 1 cup of cacao powder

  • 4 ounces or 1/2 cup of grade A maple syrup

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/8 tsp baking soda

  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt

  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (can use dairy free to make this a dairy free recipe, sugar free etc!)


In a small sauce pan over medium low heat, combine all ingredients. Stir until the sugar is dissolved and starts to simmer. Allow to simmer for 15-20 minutes over low heat. Mixture should become purple and slightly thick.

Remove from heat and then strain the blueberry syrup discarding the blueberries. Store in the fridge for up to a week.
