Cookie dough have been circulating Pinterest for a long time now, so I thought I had to check out what the fuss was all about 😉 After looking at a few recipes, I picked up bits and pieces here and there and came up with an awesome and guilt free recipe 🙂 I love these. And they only take about 5-10 min to whip up.
Raw cookie dough bites
makes about 15 cookie bites
1 cup oats
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup almond butter
1 cup soft dates, pitted (I used medjool dates)
1 tsp coconut oil
pinch of sea salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup dark chocolate, chopped or chocolate chips, (I used 72% cocoa, vegan chocolate)
1. Add the pitted dates in a food processor/high speed blender and blend until you have a paste.
2. Mix everything together in a baking bowl and make them into about 15 round cookie bites.
3. Store in the fridge or freezer in an airtight container.
If you’re having trouble making the date paste, you can soak the dates in water first (about half an hour) if they’re not soft enough. You can also add a few tablespoons of water when you blend them.
Make sure you buy certified gluten free oats if you wish for a gluten free recipe.
