PB and C COOKIE DOUGH BITES

*** I recently added this to the Secret Recipe Club’s Cookie Party ***

There was once a time when I would buy Pillsbury cookie dough and eat the whole unbaked sleeve myself (gasp!)!!!  Something tells me that didn’t help any of the medical conditions I was experiencing.

I know we all grew-up eating raw cookie dough, but I need to confess that now the idea of eating cookie dough made with raw eggs makes me cringe…can anyone say salmonella?  This cookie dough can be eaten without worry since there are no eggs in the dough.

Do you know what else isn’t in the dough?  Butter.  I have created a healthy cookie dough recipe for those (like me) who have a fondness for eating raw dough.  I do however want to point out that this is a dessert and isn’t meant to be eaten in one sitting (although it would be a heck of a lot better for you to eat this whole batch than a whole batch of conventional cookie dough).  Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS – Makes 30-32 cookie bites

1 cup organic peanut butter

3/4 cup blanched almond flour

1/2 cup pitted Medjool dates

1/4 cup flax meal

1/4 cup vegan carob chips

2 Tbs. water

~

Mash together the pitted dates and peanut butter.  I wear a latex-free glove and mash them together with my hands.  The dates will not break down completely.

Pour the almond flour and flax meal over the date/peanut butter mixture and combine well.  You can mash it together with your hands or with a pastry cutter.  Add the water and mix well to combine.  Add the carob chips and combine.

Place the mixture in the fridge for 30 minutes to firm-up.

Use a small scoop and shape the dough into balls.

Store the completed cookie dough bites in the refrigerator.  I store mine in a mason jar.

*** I am sure this recipe would work well in a food processor as well.

    This sounds tasty! Would oat or rice flour work instead of almond? I have those. :-D

    • It should work, but the amount needed will probably be less. Just add a little and if it doesn’t hold together add a little bit more until it does. Make sure you don;t add too much or it will end-up being dry. The almond flour is more moist than oat or rice flour. Let me know how it turns out…I’d love to hear back from you with the results.
