healthy cookie dough bites *recipe*

These are yum. Seriously. I have tried almost every version of healthy sweet treats I can get my hands on, and these are the most satisfying. The delicious combination of nuts, agave, and honey, and of course chocolate, gives them an excellent texture, as well as the yummy sweetness, not to mention that the nuts fill you up with some substantial protein that keeps you feeling full. Practically perfect.

Here's what you need:

Ingredients
  • 2/3 cup almonds
  • 2/3 cup walnuts
  • 2/3 cup steel cut oatmeal
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 cup agave nectar
  • 1/8 cup honey
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp dark chocolate chips or dark chocolate M&Ms
  1. In a food processor, process the almonds, walnuts, oatmeal and salt to a fine meal.
  2. Add the agave nectar and vanilla and process to combine.
  3. Next, add the chocolate chips and pulse just to combine.
  4. Roll the cookie dough into balls about 1 tbsp each (wet your hands if the dough is too sticky) and place them on a cookie pan lined with parchment paper. Place the pan in the freezer for about an hour to firm up. Store balls in a tightly covered container in the freezer.

        1. Yum! These sound delish :) I am always wanting cookie dough lately, but can't have raw egg, so I will be sure to give these a try!
