Eating raw cookie dough is no longer considered a no-no. These days you can get edible cookie dough in a supermarket or order it online from a cookie dough café. The only downside? It’s usually loaded with sugar and carbs. Finally, cookie dough you don’t have to resist: This recipe, courtesy of Dani Spies from Clean & Delicious, gives you the ooey-gooey goodness without the guilt.
These homemade vegan cookie dough bites are perfect for those times when you just need a little something sweet without feeling the sugar crash later, says Dani. That’s because they are free of refined sugars and packed with protein and fiber instead. “They’re kind of just like a homemade Lara bar, because all they have are cashews and dates and, of course, a few chocolate chips for yum factor,” she adds.
