Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

 

 

 
Sometimes you just need a few sprinkles to brighten your day. Especially when the wintertime feels as though it will never end!
 
I have had a major sweet tooth lately. Who am I kidding? I always have a major sweet tooth! Lately I have been craving a frosted chocolate cake. I have not allowed myself to make one because I know I will eat more than one piece in a sitting. Cakes and pastries are my weakness. I could make a mugcake, I know, but I am craving the real thing. A mugcake is a nice substitute, but doesn’t fully replace cake when you’re wanting cake!
 

 

Now that I have you thinking of cake, you may love my White Chocolate Wonderful Mugcake!
Onto the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites!

Combine all ingredients, minus the chocolate chips, into a food processor and pulse until thoroughly mixed. Fold in the tablespoon of chocolate chips last. Using a tablespoon measuring spoon- scoop out and roll 20 bites. Place each bite onto a plate lined with parchment paper. Once rolled, place into the freezer until needed. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the chocolate chips. Once the chocolate has melted, remove the bites from the freezer. Place the bites, on top of the parchment paper, onto the counter and space them out. Spoon the melted chocolate into a Ziploc bag, cut a tiny piece of the edge, and drizzle the chocolate over the top.  Add sprinkles (optional) and place them, including the parchment paper, back onto the plate and into the freezer until the chocolate has hardened. Remove and enjoy! Keep refrigerated.

    Where do you get your ingredients? What kind of maple syrup did you use?

    Would rice flour work just as well?

      Sammy B

      Hey Valerie,

      I have never worked with or used rice flour, so I am not quite sure. I’m sorry!

    Instead of oat flour would coconut flour be a viable alternative?

    Almond Flour works well too!! These are delicious and my kids eat these too.

      Sammy B

      Yes! I have made these with almond flour, although only once, and they were delicious!

    I used Crown Maple syrup. It is pure and 100% organic. These were really good.

      I’ve never tried that brand, but I will keep it in mind for next time! Thank you for the heads up!

    I want to thank you for taking time out of your day to post your fabulous recipes! I have two quick questions! One when you say stevia does it matter if it’s liquid stevia or not? AND can I sub the maple syrup for honey??

      Hi Nancy!

      Thank you for the sweet comment of support! I greatly appreciate it! As far as Stevia–liquid and powder are different as far as sweetness. Same goes for different brands. Yes, you can sub for honey or maple syrup! No matter the sweetener you use, sweeten to taste as all sweeteners have a different level of sweetness. Not to mention our palates! 🙂
