Who doesn’t love cookie dough?!?! If you don’t you should really consider seeing a doctor….
I have NO shame in telling you I have made cookie dough before just to eat it…I mean, I eventually baked cookies, but the full intent was to just eat the RAW COOKIE DOUGH, yup..raw egg and all. I have the immune system of a bull (I dunno nuttin’ about a bull’s immune system, but I imagine its strong).
My mom even let me lick the beaters of the mixer (turned off of course) when I was little…thats real love right there…thanks mom!
Well, you’ll be happy to hear there is no raw egg in these, as there is no egg at all.
Just a few ingredients thrown in a bowl, chilled, rolled, dipped, frozen, and consumed.
What you’ll need:
1 cup almond butter
1/4 cup honey
2/3 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla
1 2/3 cup dark chocolate chips (optional)*
1 tsp coconut oil (only if you are going to dip in chocolate)
Sea Salt (optional if dipping in chocolate)
*This will be total Paleo without the chocolate, you can always use Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips…the darker the better!
What you’ll do:
~Put the almond butter, honey, coconut, salt, and vanilla in a bowl and mix (no need for a mixer, just mix by hand)
~Add 2/3 cup chocolate chips (if using) into the “batter”
~Put in fridge and chill for a few hours
~Line a cookie tray with wax paper, scoop dough out into nice, round balls….(hehe) I use a smaller ice cream scooper, place in the freezer
~Once our balls are nice and frozen (yes I just said it, typed it, and laughed about it), melt 1 cup chocolate and coconut oil, mix until smooth, dip each ball into the chocolate, and sprinkle with sea salt, if you so choose.
