Skinny Cookie Dough Bites
These skinny cookie dough bites are gluten free, vegan, and ready in 5 minutes!
Remember those Skinny Lemon Bites?
Those healthy little balls of yumminess? Well sometimes a girl just needs to have chocolate.
Which is what led to these chocolate chip cookie dough bites. Skinny style.
These are made with gluten free oats, cashews, raw agave nectar, vanilla extract, and some wonderful vegan and gluten free chocolate chips. Yes I found gluten free, vegan chocolate chips at the market. Just a regular market. I didn’t even need to make an adventure to Whole Foods for these bad boys.
And the best part? The ones I got were the same price as regular chocolate chips! Yay!
Healthy and inexpensive. Win!
I used the same recipe that I used on the Skinny Lemon Bites, just exchanged the lemon extract for the vanilla and added those wonderful chocolate chips. I would advise to purchase the mini chocolate chips if you can find them. The market I went to only had the regular size vegan ones though, which is why I used those ones.
The large chocolate chips did make it a little more difficult to form the ‘dough’ into balls since the chips got in the way. It took a little extra time for me to form the balls. I think the mini chips would help with this. Or if you are having the same issue as me where the chips are getting in the way you can always form the balls with the ‘dough’ and then press the chocolate chips in after it’s formed.
Even though forming them took me a bit longer, they were still completely made and done in the 5 minutes! Can’t beat that! I don’t know about you, but when I’m hungry and want a snack, I want it then. Especially if it’s a chocolate craving.
This recipe will make the perfect amount for two servings. I prefer to store them in the refrigerator in an air tight container to keep them cool, they’re more refreshing that way. However, if you plan on eating them that day you can store them at room temperature. None of the ingredients would spoil. Again, I wish I could tell you how long they will keep for, but we tend to eat them all the same day that they’re made.
