Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

Vegan.  Gluten-free.  Raw.  All the kids loved them.  An all-around win-win!

I have been through a lull with cooking.  Buying a house and moving at the start of summer with 4 children under the age of 10 can cause you to lose you mind drink a lot lose a little inspiration in the kitchen.  The kids have been eating a lot of protein bars, and I (and my wallet) am ready for a break from them.  Quick easily digestible snacks are a great way to prepare for a swim team practice or fuel up in the car.  I scoured the internet for a new recipe that fit the bill of few whole food ingredients, quick and easy.  I found and slightly modified this recipe which met all of these requirements.  They were really delicious, but I honestly think we would have eaten them regardless because they contained chocolate chips.  A very small amount of chocolate chips, by the way 😉  After trying them, my kids said in unison, “Mom, they taste like chocolate chip cookie dough!”.  I guess the recipe title is fitting.  Enjoy!
