Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites Recipe
3 cups almond flour
1 pinch of sea salt (optional)
1/2 cup melted soy free Earth Balance butter substitute or 1/2 cup organic virgin coconut oil
1/2 cup of maple syrup
1 Tablespoon of vanilla extract
1 tsp of liquid stevia (optional to taste)
12 oz bag of Enjoy Life or other soy free chocolate chips (1/2 cup for bites and remainder for melting and dipping)
Line a pan with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large bowl, stir together butter substitute or coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla, and stevia.
Add almond flour and sea salt then stir well. Gently stir in 1/2 cup of chocolate chips until well blended. Roll into 1 inch balls and place on parchment paper. Chill in the fridge for 15 minutes.
In a medium sized bowl over a pot of water, melt the chocolate for the topping. Remove from heat and let cool slightly but not long enough to set up.
Remove cookie dough bites from the fridge and pour melted chocolate over each bit. Let cool or if you are in a hurry, return to fridge to expedite the chocolate hardening. Store in fridge if you have any left! Enjoy!
