Vegan Chocolately Peanut Buttery Cookie Dough Balls


Chocolate and peanut butter might just be the best flavor combination on the planet!!  If you agree with me, this recipe is a must for you!  The good totally awesome news is – it’s a healthy treat!  No processed sugars, gluten or eggs – hooray!  What are you waiting for?  Get out your food processors and let’s do this!

Chocolatey Peanut Buttery Cookie Dough

1 cup oats

3/4 cup organic raw carob powder

1 Tbsp maca

1/2 cup coconut shreds

2 heaping Tbsp natural peanut butter

1 tsp vanilla

4 dates

1/3 cup coconut milk {could be more}

1/2 cup organic raw cacao nibs

Directions: Whizz oats in food processor until it’s nice and powdery.  Add maca, carob and coconut shreds and whizz some more.  Add vanilla,dates and PB. Slowly add coconut milk until dough starts to form.  Once desire consistency is achieved add cacao nibs and pulse until combined.

I used a cookie dough baller thingy to make my balls. { Not sure what it’s really called,but it’s what we always used growing up to make cookies.}  You really need to pack the dough in tight for a nice ball to form.  The cacao nibs make the dough a little crumbly, but just form it up with your fingers if needed.

After a few hours, the cacao nibs start to soften but still remain slightly crunchy.  I made mine yesterday and they are even softer today which might be good for those who don’t like the crunchiness of the nibs.

Makes about two dozen.

Confession: I had two {ok, maybe 3} for breakfast with some orange slices.  The only thing better than chocolate and peanut butter is adding some oranges to the mix.  PS, I’m still keeping with my raw challenge…lunch and dinner will most certainly be raw!
