Raw Cookie Dough Bites

IMG_6784

When my sister and I bake together, a quarter of the recipe is usually consumed before it makes it to the oven. What is it about cake batter that is so deliciously moreish? These cookie dough inspired bliss balls are sweet, chunky and delicious just like an unbaked biscuit.

IMG_6782I decided to make two different flavours inspired by my favourite baking batters – chocolate brownies and banana bread. The brownie balls are super rich and chocolately with a crunchy, nutty texture. And the banana bread balls are smooth and doughy studded with milk chocolate drops. They are quick, easy, packed with healthy goodies and taste like fudgy little balls of heaven! If you can resist eating half the mixture before rolling the balls you are stronger than I am.

Dark Chocolate Brownie Bites

  • 1 cup medjool dates
  • ¼ cup cacao powder
  • ¼ cup peanut cacao spread (this is a good brand) or use your favourite natural nut butter
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • ½ teaspoon of vanilla essence
  • ¼ cup cacao nibs
  • 1/3 cup desiccated coconut
  • 2 tablespoons of agave
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil (add more if mixture is too crumbly)

Add all ingredients to the bowl of a food processor except the cacao nibs, mix until a crumbly dough is formed. Add cacao nibs. Roll into balls. Store in the fridge.

Chunky Monkey Cookie Dough Bites

  • 1 small banana
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • ½ teaspoon of vanilla essence
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup of coconut
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup of chocolate chips

Add all ingredients to the bowl of a food processor except the chocolate chips, mix until a sticky dough is formed. Add chocolate chips. Roll into balls. Store in the fridge.

I like to bring mine to room temperature before eating. Each recipe makes approximately 16 bliss balls each.
