I was CRAVING this!

 Peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough balls! 

Peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough balls! 

I hate it when I google a recipe and there are paragraphs after paragraphs of how and why they made their recipe. I literally scroll to the bottom to review the recipe and see if I like it. That is why I write very little myself. 

My why: I love making EASY and QUICK healthy yummy meals and I love sharing them.  

Now onto the how!

What you need: 

1 cup almonds 

1 cup dates

1/4 cup natural pb

1/4 cup coconut oil

1 tbsp agave (or maple syrup)

1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes  

1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips (PC brand) 

Place almonds in food processor and grind into small pieces. Add dates, oil, pb, and agave. Gring together until you get a dough like mixture. If it’s too dry add a little more pb and coconut oil. Once mixed add the coconut and chips and mix again. Roll into balls (eat one for good measure) and place in the freezer for 20 minutes. Place into a sealed container and store for up to 2 weeks (if they last that long).  

This is a great treat after a meal! 

Want more protein?  Add vanilla protein powder. 

Hate dates?  Try another gooey dried fruit, like dried apricot.

Try different nuts as your base. Cashews are yummy!

Last, but not least, enjoy!  Savour the flavours and enjoy fuelling your body and the pleasure in eating. Yes, it’s OK to enjoy food!
