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. 

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.

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

    Pure maple syrup.

    Would rice flour work just as well?

    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?

    I’m going to try it, I will let you know!

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

    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! ūüôā
