healthy cookie dough balls

Want a tasty snack that is filling and actually very good for you??
I thought so. 

Just tried this one thinking of my honey who works a very laborious job and needs extra protein.  He really liked them... and so did everyone else!!

So. you need a food processor first.

Here's the recipe: 

  Healthy cookie dough balls
  • 2 Cups Peanuts
  • 1 Cup  Dates
  • 3 Scoops of Protein Powder (optional)
  • ¼ Cup Coconut
  • ¼ Cup Ground Flax (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
  • 3 Tbsp Almond Butter
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • ¼ Cup Water (or more...)
  • sugar (optional)
  • ¼ Cup (fair trade ;0) Chocolate Chips 
Put the peanuts in the food processor and blend.   Add the rest of the dry ingredients and blend.  Then add the wet ingredients and blend. It gets a bit tricky and sticky here, but stick with it until its a blended blob of yumminess!  then with slightly floured hands, take out bits at a time and roll them into balls.  I rolled mine in a tiny bit of sugar.  Then poke a few chocolate chips into each ball and refrigerate!   

these come from the 10,000 villages store

You will really only want a couple of these at a time! They are great for after strenuous exercise 
or when you feel you need a boost of energy.
