Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

February 8, 2016

 

Valentine's day is coming which means an excuse to eat chocolate! Although any day is a good day for dark chocolate in my opinion.

 

 

 

 

These are a staple in our house.With only four ingredients, they are an easy way to have a sweet treat without added flour, sugar or oil.

 

However, they are still quite sweet form the dates and should be eaten in moderation.  Sometimes it’s easy for us to overeat a “healthy” dessert when the calorie content and sugar breakdown is often quite similar to a traditional cookie.

 

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

 

1 c. dates, pitted

1 c. pecans or cashews

Splash of vanilla

Mini chocolate chips (about ¼- ½ c.)

 

Blend the dates and nuts in a food processor until well chopped and beginning to stick together. Add about a teaspoon of vanilla and blend again.

 

Stir in the mini chocolate chips and roll into balls. Enjoy!

 

How are you celebrating Valentine's Day?
