MAKE | Paleo Cookie Dough Bites

paleocookiedoughballs-2 When I started eating paleo I was pretty snooty in my own mind about not being one of those people who paleo "cheats". You know, you see the receipes all over Pinterest... paleo cupcakes, paleo muffins, paleo donuts... whatever. It's still junk food even though it's paleo. But then... hormones hit me and I wanted junk food BAD. So I gave in, swallowed my pride, and started fiddling in my paleo kitchen to come up with some no-bake paleo cookie dough balls to snack on and hopefully satisfy my junk food cravings.
  paleocookiedoughballs-1 They're pretty simple. Not horribly unhealthy (I used coconut sugar to sweeten which has a rich almost caramel-like flavor as well as some coconut flour to hold it all together) for you. And the perfect bit size to grab in a sweet tooth induced panic. Or... if you're way less dramatic, when you want something sweet. I free-handed this recipe so here's my best guess at quantities. Feel free to take liberties with this recipe... PALEO COOKIE DOUGH BITES ➳ 1/2 c. coconut butter ➳ 1 tbs. almond butter ➳ 1 tbs coconut sugar ➳ 1/8 c. coconut flour ➳ sprinkling of coconut flakes ➳ carob chips (or drizzle with coconut butter mixed with cocoa powder like I did) Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mash with a fork (or your hands!) until combined. Roll the dough into balls Drizzle with toppings Put the finished cookie dough balls in the freezer for about 2 hours Enjoy!

(For those of you sticking with the 21 Day Fix... 1 cookie dough ball = 1 orange serving)
