Out of ALLL of the recipes i have ever made – this has to be my favorite. I know, I know, bold statement but TRUE. My whole family loves them, even my brother.. which is very rare that he likes something of mine. Now, he checks the freezer every time he’s ever to see if I have a stash of them, and last time he was at my house he took the whole bag of them home with him LOL.
So, as you can probably guess these are delissssh if I do say myself. But I’ll let you be the judge….
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites
INGREDIENTS – *Makes about 10, depending on size of molds used!*
- 1/2 cup + 1 tbs coconut flour
- 1/2 cup cashew or pecan butter (*any nut butter will work but these are my favs to use!!*)
- 2 tbs honey
- 2 tbs grass-fed butter, melted *coconut oil or coconut butter will work to make vegan*
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- pinch of salt *I use pink himalayan salt*
- Dark chocolate – 1 bag chocolate chips or 1-2 baking bars.
- Melt 1/2 of your chocolate. I add in 1 tbs coconut oil and melt in microwave at 30 second intervals. The other half of your chocolate will be used as the chocolate chips in the “cookie dough”
- Pour melted chocolate into the bottom of silicon molds, filling them about 1/2 way – can also use mini cupcake liners, ice cube trays, etc. Place in freezer
- In a mixing bowl, combine coconut flour and nut butter.
- Once well mixed, add in honey, melted butter/oil, vanilla extract, salt, choc chips. mix until well combined.
- Take chocolate out of freezer and layer one scoop of the “cookie dough” mixture on top of each.
- Press the cookie dough down into the molds or cupcake liners, so that it covers the chocolate layer.
- Freeze for 10 mins and enjoy! I keep mine stored in the freezer 🙂
*If you prefer – you can skip the chocolate layer and
make cookie dough balls instead! Just make the “cookie dough”,
roll it into balls, and store in freezer!!*
Recipe notes ~
~ Like I said before, these will work with any nut butter, but I prefer using cashew or pecan butter!
~ I have made these without using any sweetener at all and they still taste yummy! But, If you like things sweeter, feel free to add more honey or even sweeten with pure maple syrup.
~ I’ve also tried making them with a mashed banana instead of honey – it works but definitely impacts the texture, still really good though!
~ I use an unsweetened chocolate bar from trader joes and I never really measure how much chocolate I use. I just start by melting some, filling the molds about 1/2 way with chocolate, and then chop up some more to throw into the cookie dough as chocolate chunks!
I hope you guys enjoy these as much as I do!!! As always, if you make em tag me on Instagram to show me your creations – @actually_alexandra
