Protein Cookie Dough Bites
I don’t know about you, but my favorite part of making cookies is eating the raw dough. If your answer is also yes, then these cookie dough bites are for you. And if you’re answer was no these cookie dough bites are still for you. These bites are packed with omega 3’s from the hemp seeds, protein from the pear protein powder, and fiber from the oat flour. Oh, and let’s not forget they are loaded with anti-oxidants from all of those chocolate chips. I use enjoy life mini chocolate chips in mine, but you could also use cacao nibs if you wanted something a little healthier.
1 cup cashew butter
½ cup oat flour
½ cup nut milk of choice (I used flax milk)
2 tbsp. hemp seeds
2 tbsp. coconut sugar
2 tbsp. maple syrup
¼ tsp. sea salt
½ tsp. vanilla extract
½ cup to 1 cup of enjoy life mini chocolate chips
In a food processor combine the cashew butter, oat flour, protein powder, hemp seeds, nut milk, coconut sugar, maple syrup, salt, and vanilla extract and combine until a crumbly dough forms. Take the blade out of the food processor and add the chocolate chips. You can combine with a spoon, but I prefer using your hands. Next form these into golf size balls. Enjoy J.
* Store these in an air tight container in the refrigerator
** You can try a different protein powder like vega1, or if you don’t want the protein you can just add extra oat flour J.
