Healthy, Edible Cookie Dough vs. Traditional
Whether it’s homemade cookie dough or even the pre-made store-bought dough, it’s undeniably delicious. Unfortunately, it’s definitely not a healthy choice—and often it can be a risky choice. Luckily, these no bake chocolate chip cookie dough bites offer a wholesome and safe alternative!
Usually, traditional cookie dough features refined flour, loads of refined sugars, butter, and eggs. Those refined grains and sugars wreak havoc on our blood sugar balance and offer our bodies no fuel. Plus, it can be unsafe to eat both raw flour and raw eggs, due to disease-causing bacteria that they might contain.
So, in these chocolate chip cookie dough bites, I’ve nixed the refined grains altogether and used coconut flour instead! It’s an unrefined flour option and it still contains the wholesome fats, fiber, and other nutrients from the coconut. And, I’m so in love with its extra-fluffy texture!
Then, I ditched the eggs and butter, using cashew butter to hold these chocolate chip cookie dough bites together instead. And, instead of refined sugars, I’ve used mashed banana for natural sweetness and just ¼ cup of maple syrup in this entire recipe. Soft, sweet, and totally safe to devour!
