In the midst of all the push-ups and kale, it’s important to have healthy treats to look forward to!
I wanted to share this delicious recipe for raw cookie dough bites, courtesy of A Dash of Compassion that has been my personal favorite lately.
Use raw cacao nibs in place of chocolate chips for a real energy boost without the refined sugar – these get plenty of sweetness from the honey and raisins. You’ll see 🙂
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites
You will need: food processor, measuring cups and spoons
2/3 cup almonds
2/3 cup walnuts
2/3 cup oat bran (flax seed meal works great too!)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 cup honey
1 T vanilla extract
1/4 cup cacao nibs
1/4 cup raisins
1. In a food processor, blend the almonds, walnuts, oats, cinnamon and sea salt together until you’ve created a fine textured meal.
2. Add the honey and vanilla and process again until combined.
3. Lastly, add in the cacao nibs and raisins and pulse a few times to mix them in.
4. Roll into even sized balls and place on a platter or baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Store in the refrigerator.
