Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites – these cookie dough bites are very easy to make, take no time at all, and are a wonderful healthy alternative to the traditional cookie dough that we all love!
Best part? It’s made with a handful of ingredients and you can be popping one of these delicious bites in your mouth in 20 minutes or less.
Sprinkles are everything!
Sometimes you just need a few sprinkles to brighten your day. Especially when the wintertime feels as though it will never end! And a Michigan winter always feels as though it will continue on until Thanksgiving comes around again. I love Michigan, but the weather/wintertimes here can be rough.
So it’s the little things, like sprinkles, that perk you up and get you through those days.
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, but I have not allowed myself to make one because it won’t be one slice. Cakes and pastries are a weakness for me. That’s when mug cakes come in handy when you’re craving the real thing.
Now that I have you thinking of cake, you may love my White Chocolate Wonderful Mugcake!
Looks incredible right? Yet another super simple, delicious, and healthy dessert recipe to enjoy without the guilt. And of course I added sprinkles! Gloomy Michigan day perked right up.
Onto the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites!
- The recipe calls for cashew butter. I think this nut butter works best for making “cookie dough”, as it doesn’t have a profound taste. You’re more than welcome to use whatever nut butter of your choosing.
- I used Stevia and maple syrup, but honey works well, too.
- You can find butter extract/flavor in the baking aisle. If you cannot, simply substitute with 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract. The butter extract/flavor helps to give the bites that “cookie dough” taste.
