Happy Valentine’s Day!!
Have you guys heard about this place DO (pronounced Dough) in New York City? It looks absolutely UNREAL. It’s full of all different kinds of edible cookie dough and they even have a couple of gluten free, grain free and vegan options! The lines have been absolutely ridiculous. I know someone that went and said the line was 2 and a half hours long.
For COOKIE DOUGH.
Pretty sure the only thing that would make me wait 2 and a half hours for cookie dough is if the Backstreet Boys were spoon-feeding it to me while simultaneously serenading me when I got to the front of the line….
But nevertheless, seeing these edible pieces of deliciousness all over my social media feeds really upped my craving for the dough. So I figured just in time for Valentine’s Day, I’d whip up my own!
These take all of 5 minutes to make are full of healthy fats, free of refined sugar, grains, gluten, dairy, eggs and soy but still gives you that chocolate chip cookies dough fix! So much better for you than eating them straight out of the bowl (or package if you’re super lazy) but no stomach aches here AND you don’t have to wait 2 and a half hours to eat them!
5 minutes > 2 hours!
And if you want to go the extra mile, you can cover them in chocolate too!
Hope you enjoy!
Cookie Dough Bites
3/4 cup cashew butter
1/4 cup coconut flour
1 and a half tbsp maple syrup
2 tsp Vanilla
tiny pinch of salt
1/4 cup chocolate chips (I used extra dark Enjoy Life)
Pulse all ingredients (except the chocolate chips) in a food processor until a dough forms, then add in chocolate chips (you can stir them in to keep them whole or pulse them to get them chopped a bit… I did a mix!
Roll into a ball or use a cookie scoop/tablespoon measure and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze for 30 minutes!
To cover with chocolate (because more chocolate is always a good idea)
Melt 1/4 cup chocolate chips with 1 tsp coconut oil over a double boiler. Once melted, take the bites from the freezer and roll in the chocolate, place on parchment paper and put back in the freezer for an hour or so to harden!
