These are a delicious snack for after dinner or for when you just have a sweet tooth. I have to admit when I saw this recipe, I was skeptical that it would taste ANYTHING like cookie dough. After a bite, Mickey and I were hooked!
CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE DOUGH BITES (Paleo!!!)
1 cup almond flour
¼ cup vanilla protein powder, or additional almond flour
¼ tsp salt
¼ cup powdered sugar
¼ cup coconut oil or spread, melted
1 tbsp coconut milk
1 ½ tsp vanilla extract
¼ cup dark chocolate chips
Mix the flour, protein powder, salt and sugar in a bowl. In a small bowl, mix all of the wet ingredients and pour into the dry mix. Fold in the chocolate chips and make small, inch-sized balls. Once rolled, place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet and place in the freezer for at least 30 minutes.
This recipe also called for a chocolate coating, but it is not really needed. If you must, try the following:
2/3 cup dark chocolate chips
1 ½ tbsp. coconut oil/spread
In a double broiler or saucepan, melt the chips and oil. Once melted, remove from the heat and dip each ball with a spoon and replace to the sheet. Place the bites back into the freezer for the chocolate to harden.
