When I first offered James a bite of these awesome/addicting cookie dough bites, he looked at me skeptically, took a bite, and then said no thanks. Once I told him they were in fact “raw” cookie dough bites and had no raw egg (ironically), but only ground up nuts, oats, honey and chocolate chips, he couldn’t stop eating them. They sit in our freezer and it takes all our will power for us not to chow down. However, if I were to chow down I wouldn’t have the same guilt because there is no butter, oil or processed sugar! Hooray for healthy snack/dessert alternatives!
I can easily see making a huge batch of these and bring them to picnics, on hikes, to the beach, parties, you name it.
