So if your like me, by the time the afternoon hits I need a little something in the snack department. I’m not one of those people who can eat 3 meals a day and be satisfied. Eating about 5 small meals a day keeps me in a happy mood. You know what happens when you get too hungry before a meal, yeah not too pretty…
These cookie dough balls are a perfect snack to help tide your hunger over until dinner. Especially if you are on the go. They are also great to have before a workout first thing in the morning, because of their size, they don’t weigh me down in the morning or make my stomach uncomfortable, which is great.
And is it just me, or do you prefer raw cookie dough over cooked cookies? As I kid I absolutely loved raw cookie dough. I would put it in the freezer and eat it from there. These are just a tad healthier. And by a tad, I mean a lot.
Ingredients (6 balls)
- 1/4 cup protein powder (I used sun warrior)
- 3 tablespoons coconut flour
- 2 tablespoons raw cashew butter (you could use any nut butter)
- 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1/2 cup applesauce, unsweetened (or pumpkin)
- 1-4 tablespoons almond milk
- liquid stevia (to preferred taste)
Melt the coconut oil in a bowl, add the nut butter and banana, and stevia (or other sweetener), and mash until combined. Then add the protein powder and coconut flour and combine well (I just use my hands). The dough will be pretty thick, so if you need to add some liquid add in your almond milk (1 tablespoon at a time), until you can form them into balls. Refrigerate or freeze until your ready to eat.
And enjoy.Do you prefer baked or raw cookies?
Have you started spring cleaning yet?
Have a great day all!
