Do you ever stop your kids from licking the spoon when you make cookies?
You know… with the whole raw egg and salmonella thing. I know I do.
One of the best parts of making cookies is tasting the dough, right? These Raw Cookie Dough Bites from The Nourishing Home are an easy way to do just that, without the worry of raw eggs or heating up the oven.
With wholesome ingredients like coconut flour, ground flax and nut butters you can feel good about making these for an after school snack or as a sweet addition to your kids’ lunch boxes.
- ½ cup creamy raw almond butter or peanut butter
- ¼ cup, plus 1 tbsp raw honey or maple syrup
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- ¼ cup, plus 1 tbsp coconut flour
- 3 tbsp ground flax seed
- ¼ tsp sea salt
- ¼ cup dark chocolate chips or carob chips
- In a large bowl, mix together the nut butter, honey (or maple syrup) and vanilla until creamy and well blended. In a separate bowl, combine the coconut flour, ground flax seed and sea salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix well to combine. Use your hands to knead the dough. If the dough is too wet, add a bit more coconut flour. If it's too dry and doesn't hold together well, knead in one teaspoon of water. Fold in the dark chocolate chips or carob chips. Scoop out tablespoon-size portions and roll into one-inch balls using your hands to create a bite-sized treat.
- *Refrigerate truffles for 30 minutes before serving. Makes about 18 cookie bites.
So easy and delicious. One-bowl-goodness right here.
