Paleo Cookie Dough Bites

TRUE FACT: I actually don't love cookies.

I know, who am I??? But seriously, I'd pick a bowl of soft serve ice cream or a gooey brownie over a cookie ANY day.

I've posted recipes for healthy, mostly raw "cookies" before. None of these taste like the traditional, baked variety, but personally I love that about them. This variation doesn't include any oats making it perfect for my paleo friends. I especially love the addition of roasted hazelnuts - it gives these cookies an interesting flavor... plus, almonds are SO 2017 ;).

Cookie Dough Bites vegan / gluten free / paleo

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Add all ingredients except cacao nibs to your food processor (or Vitamix) and pulse until "dough" starts to come together.
  2. Add cacao nibs and pulse a few times more to incorporate.
  3. Form into balls with your hands. You can also use a melon scooper for more uniform bites. Arrange on a cookie sheet and place in the freezer for 20-30 minutes, or until firm.
  4. Enjoy immediately, or store in the freezer to eat later.

If you make this recipe, I'd love it if you would snap a photo and post to social media - make sure to tag me @EmilyNachazel so I can see it.

 

 

Happy happy holidays friends!
