Remember when we were fat ass kids and we used to go to the grocery store and split entire packs of Pillsbury cookie doughs? And your parents were like don’t eat raw cookie dough you could get salmonella! And that risk was so far away and cookie dough was SOO good that you were like shut up mom I’m eleven and I do what I want!
COME ON MOM SHELBY’S PARENTS DON’T CARE IF SHE GETS SALMONELLA COME ON YOU NEVER LET ME DO…
Ok sorry I got ahead of myself there. What is it about cookie dough that appeals to such a large audience? It is the unfinished nature of the treat, that reminds us of the fleeting brevity of happiness? That once we put a dough ball in our mouths it is only a matter of time before we masticate and swallow what once made us so blissfully happy? Maybe it’s the child in us. Or maybe it was the OUT OF THIS WORLD sugar content.
Anyway, we deserve better ingredients as adults and as healthy people! So here is an amazing peanut butter cookie dough ball recipe.
This is a great recipe for any adults that need to feel eleven years old again, in a very normal way, and for actual eleven year olds! That came out wrong. I mean they’re great for kids! Kids love them! Kids will be attracted to these dough balls. What?
This recipe is gluten free, raw, sugar free and can be soy and nut free as well for any homies out there with severe allergies.
1 and ½ cup gluten free rolled oats
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter or almond butter
¼ cup pure maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup almond flour
¼ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon mini chocolate chips
In a blender, blend oats until a fine flour forms, then set it aside!
Then, in a large bowl, combine the oil, peanut butter, maple syrup, and vanilla and beat with a hand mixer until it’s SMOOTH and LUCIOUS.
Add the almond flour, then the oat flour and salt and beat again until it’s all combined!
THEN add the snazzy lil chocolate chips. You can make your own cacao chips for chocolate chips or you can MAN up and use the REAL ones. Just kidding, people with allergies.
Roll the cookie dough into small balls of about a tablespoon each. Place the finished bites on a plate lined with parchment paper.
Pop the bites in the freezer and freeze for 5 to 10 minutes or until they firm up like the little tasty boys they are. Store the bites in the freezer for a quick and easy cold snack!
