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!
