Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

Seems like you can’t look at pinterest for 1 minute without seeing about a dozen “cookie dough” recipes these days. I have been itching to make some of this yummy looking dough and since one of my best friends just had a baby I figured that was a good excuse to make some! Nothing says congratulations on giving birth like cookie dough, am I right?!

Well maybe not but she’s getting cookie dough anyway.

I tried a recipe I found on pinterest but it was kind of a bust so it turned into a recipe very similar to what I’ve made on here before. This time though, I opted to leave the dough in a more natural state so it looked more cookie-dough-esque instead of rolling it into balls.


Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites
2/3 cup raw cashews
1/3 cup oats
1/2 cup flour of your choice (more or less)
3 tablespoons agave nectar
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup chocolate chips

In a food processor, process the cashews, oats, flour and salt to a fine consistency. Add the agave, maple syrup and vanilla. Process again until a dough ball forms. If it’s too dry add more agave or syrup. If it’s too wet add more flour. Add the chocolate chips and stir with a spatula to incorporate.
On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, form the dough into balls or bites, whatever floats your boat. Store in the fridge or freezer.


As promised, here is a Lilly update. Lilly is 100% back to her old self.

Here she is on a walk.


Now I know you are thinking, Laura, it doesn’t look like she’s walking. That looks like she is laying on the ground in some bark. You would be right. I took Lilly on a walk and all she wanted to do was lay in the dirty bark. Look closely at that face.

That face says, Stop telling me to get up mother. I’m sun bathing. Deal with it. I tell you, she is the sassiest dog.
