Cook Time



For the Dip:

  • 1/2 cup raw unsalted cashews, soaked in water overnight
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons agave
  • 1/2 teaspoon raw vanilla extract
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil, melted

For the Pinwheels:

  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil, softened to room temperature
  • 4 whole wheat tortillas, or gluten-free tortillas (8-inch)
  • 4 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 4 teaspoons cinnamon
  • Toothpicks


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Drain the water from the cashews and add them into food processor.
  3. Add in the almond milk, agave, vanilla, and a pinch of salt. Blend until smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides as necessary. This make take 4-5 minutes to get smooth. Once smooth, with the food processor running, stream in the melted coconut oil until well mixed. Transfer the dip to a bowl and refrigerate to thicken.
  4. Divide the soft coconut oil between each tortilla (about 1 teaspoon each) and spread out evenly.
  5. In a small bowl, stir together the coconut sugar and cinnamon. Divide between the tortillas, sprinkling over the coconut oil to completely cover each tortilla.
  6. Roll each tortilla up tightly and slice each into 8 bites. Insert a toothpick into each bite to secure it.
    Place the bites on a pan, cut-side down, and bake until the filling is soft and melted, about 8-10 minutes.

It can be easy to make and totally delicious. Taylor believes in living a balanced, whole life so Food Faith Fitness also focuses on fitness/nutrition tips and working on keeping Christ at the center of daily life.

Places that you could find her include: the gym, her Bible study or just snuggling up on the couch with husband and doggy, watching The Food Network (Chopped in particular!)
