Currently, we are little obsessed with making these 6 ingredient cookie dough bites. We have made 3 batches in the past week!
Warning: These homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites are a little addicting. They taste like the real deal cookie dough, but they’re nutritionally dense and good for you! Read on to find out how you can make your own batch in just 10 minutes.
Like most of our other Snack Bites/Balls, these freeze beautifully, so it’s a great idea to make a double- or triple-batch all at once and prepare yourself for busy days ahead. One of the beautiful things about this recipe is how versatile it can be. Missing cashews? No a big deal, simply replace them with another raw nut – almonds or macadamia nuts make a great choice. Not enough dates? All good, add in some figs or a dash of pure maple syrup instead – add just enough to make the dough stick and give it a nice mild sweetness. Also, be creative with the shapes. Form the cookie dough into your own desired shape – ball, bites, bars or you can even use a cookie cutter. You are only limited by your own imagination.

These energy balls will keep for about a week in the fridge. You can freeze these balls to eat at a later time. I actually eat them straight from the freezer, although they are a bit harder for the first bite.
