Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

Vegan Richa really knows what she’s doing. This recipe for the Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites is seriously amazing. However, I wasn’t totally sold on it at first. The yield seems really small and I wasn’t sure about the texture. After I let the bites sit in the fridge, I had one…and another…then realized I was hooked.

It would be fun to play around with this recipe, perhaps using soaked cashews rather than almond meal, but that may change the consistency quite a bit.

Either way, these taste very similar to raw cookie dough and are a much healthier option!

Here is how I went about making them…

Ingredients

– 2 Tbls vegan butter
– 1/4 c brown sugar
– 2 Tbls almond milk
– 1 Tbls vanilla
– pinch of salt
– 3/4 c ground oats
– 3/4 c ground almonds
– 1/4 c sugar
– 1/2 c chocolate chips

1. Melt the butter in a small pan. Once melted, remove from heat and add the sugar, almond milk and vanilla
2. In a separate bowl, add the salt, oat flour and almond meal. Pour the wet mix into the dry. After everything is incorporated, fold in the chocolate chips. Set in the freezer for about 5 minutes
3. Roll into bite sized balls. Return to the freezer or enjoy right away!
