How to Make Edible Cookie Dough Bites

Servings 12 (energy bites)
- 1/2 cup raw cashew butter (we like Artisana)
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2/3 cup almond flour (we like Wellbee’s or homemade)
- 1/2 cup oat flour (ground from rolled oats // ensure gluten-free as needed)
- 1/4 cup coconut flour (or sub more oat flour)
- 1/8 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 cup dairy-free mini chocolate chips (dark or semi-sweet // we like Enjoy Life // or chopped chips/chunks)
To a medium bowl, add raw cashew butter, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Stir well to thoroughly combine. Next add almond flour, oat flour, coconut flour, and salt. Mix very well. You may need to knead the dough with your hands. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Scoop out tablespoon-sized amounts of dough and roll into balls, repeating with remaining dough.
Enjoy at room temperature or chilled from the refrigerator! Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
