These Chocolate Cookie Dough Balls make a wonderfully delicious, quick, easy, and healthy snack. They’re dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free, Paleo, vegan and could be made nut-free.
I’ve always had a major sweet tooth. One thing that has helped me tremendously to shift my poor snacking habits and move away from commercial candy bars is having healthy homemade treats available at all times. Bliss balls are among my favorite go-to’s since they’re really quick and easy to put together. You just mix or pulse all the ingredients together, roll into balls, and enjoy! Minimal cleanup and also no baking involved!
These chocolate cookie dough balls are extremely delicious and make a filling and energizing snack when that 3 pm slump sets in. They’re sweetened with pure maple syrup, which is a natural form of sugar and minimally processed. Maple syrup contains higher levels of beneficial nutrients, antioxidants, and phytochemicals than refined white sugar. In other words, it’s a much better alternative, but it’s still a form of sugar and should be consumed in small amounts.
The added coconut flour and cashew butter help balance blood sugar levels thanks to the healthy fats and fiber. If you don’t have cashew butter available you can use almond butter, peanut butter, or any other nut butter you have available. Sunflower seed butter is another great choice if you’re looking for a nut-free option.
