These Healthy Cookie Dough Bites are gluten free, refined sugar free and eggless. Quick and easy to make, they’re perfect as a gift – how about for Mothers’ Day?
We all love cookie dough, right? Right.
Nothing beats the sweet, gooey dough studded with melt-in-your-mouth chocolate chips. Now a very popular flavour, you’ll find ‘cookie dough flavoured’ everything! From snack bars, protein powders and cupcakes, to coffee, milkshakes and ice-cream! Or my personal favourite, cookie dough cheesecake!
When you’re making cookies, you can’t help but consider whether or not to actually put it in the oven or just sit and eat the cookie dough right there and then! (Usually I end up keeping some cookie dough behind to snack on while the rest is baking!)
Also, many don’t like to eat the dough if it contains raw egg. Of course, this is the case for you vegans out there too. And what if you don’t eat gluten? What if you’re trying not to eat refined sugars? You simply can’t miss out on the gloriousness that is cookie dough!!
No need to worry! I’ve got the perfect recipe for you:
These Healthy Cookie Dough Bites!
Gluten free, refined sugar free and eggless, it’s super quick and easy to whip up!
First of all, I started with 3 tablespoons of butter (substitute with flavourless oil for vegan version). You can use Greek yoghurt instead to make this oil & butter free. To me it doesn’t end up with quite the right flavour, but it still works.
Then we’ll add some unrefined sugar. I used light muscovado sugar, but you can use light or dark soft brown or muscovado sugar.
After some vanilla extract, we’ll incorporate flour. Either gluten free, wholewheat or just plain ol’ flour, take your pick.
Finally, we just need a good handful of chocolate chips (dark are best), and you’re good to go!
Once you’ve got these cute little healthy chocolate chip cookie dough bites rolled into shape, you could either:
- Place them in a jar as a sweet gift
- Put them on top of a dessert
- Bake them – I haven’t tried it, will they bake into cookies?
- Or just eat them!
These healthy cookie dough bites are so simple and delicious! I think they’d make a nice Mothers’ Day present, don’t you?
