Do you ever just want a delicious dessert without having to spend an hour or more in the kitchen? If you said, “Yes!” then I’m right there with ya!
And, sometimes that delicious dessert simply must involve cookie dough! 😉
That’s the reason one evening not too long ago I ventured into the kitchen to whip up a healthy sweet treat, and these little lovelies came to be.
Now, guess what happened when our 7 year old tried these for the first time. She boldly exclaimed, “There’s only ONE problem!”
I asked her what it was, and she quickly replied, “That bite was NOT big enough!” (Then, we giggled together.)
So without further ado, our family would like to introduce you to the never “big enough” Oatmeal Cookie Dough Energy Bites.Print
“Don’t eat that raw cookie dough!” said no one about THIS recipe ever! 😉
There are no raw eggs to worry about here, but what you will find is all natural ingredients and that delicious cookie dough taste that will transport you right back to your childhood.
Place 1 cup of the oats along with the flax, cinnamon, salt, and dates into the food processor. Blend to a very fine flour-like consistency.
Next, add 1 cup of oats, raisins, vanilla, pecans, almond butter, and water. Pulse about 10 times until the mixture easily holds together well when pinched.
Dip the dough out one tablespoon at a time and roll it into 1/2 inch balls.
Enjoy them immediately (they taste great this way) or place them into the freezer for a nice cool treat. Eating them frozen is our family’s favorite way, although somehow they rarely last long enough for freezing! 😉
Tip: If the dough doesn’t stick together easily when pinched, add additional water 1 tablespoon at a time and pulse after each addition. Then test the dough again each time you add water until dough can easily be pressed together into a ball shape.
