Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

 

If you are like me, you probably prefer to eat chocolate chip cookies before they are cooked, in their raw  delicious, natural form. This edible cookie dough recipe is not only healthy and high in protein, it takes just five minutes to make!

 


This recipe is very similar some previous cookie dough recipes and every so often I like to revamped and tweak them a bit. I’m on a quest to perfect this cookie dough! And I think I may have done it this time!

My two favorite flavors are coming together as one in this delicious mouth watering chia pudding recipe. Vegan, gluten-free and paleo friendly!

 


 

Just like overnight oats, chia pudding was an acquired taste for me but once after a few tries, I was hooked. Now I just can’t stop eating it! Not to mention that chia seeds are a superfood so the health benefits are well, pretty freaking super!

Chia seeds are naturally high in fiber, protein, omega-3, omega-6, calcium, copper, potassium and zinc!

 

 

This pudding recipe is so simple to make and takes just a couple of minutes to prep!

Healthy Chocolate Coconut Covered Date Candies

 

Healthy Chocolate Coconut Covered Date Candies made vegan, gluten-free and made using only 6 ingredients!

 


 

I would probably say about 98% of all the recipes I pin on Pinterest never get made or even get a second look at but there was one recipe I stumbled on a few weeks ago and I just couldn’t get it out of my head.  Today, I finally decided to make this recipe–kind of. I changed it up a bit and since my scale was suddenly broken when I went to measure my ingredients (the original recipe is listed in grams) I had to just wing it. And for winging it, I have to say these tasty treats turned out pretty amazing. So amazing that I ate two before I went to the gym and two right when I got home from the gym! I hope to control myself for the rest of the evening.

 

 

The original recipe that I adapted mine from was found on Fanny The Foodie blog along with a million other delicious looking recipes that I hope to try soon!  She called hers “Healthy Lamington Bites” and as cool as that sounds, I don’t know what the heck that is! Until the day I travel to Australia and have a lamington bite for myself, I’ll call them Healthy Chocolate Coconut Covered Date Candies. 🙂

 

I used PEScience Gourmet Vanilla Select protein in this recipe. Get 30% off all products using code PBCHOCO.

  • 1/3 c gluten-free oats
  • 9 medjool dates, pitted
  • 32g vanilla protein
  • 1/3 c sugar-free chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp coconut oil

Instructions

  1. Place the oats, dates and protein powder into a food processor or high performing blender and blitz until a large dough ball forms.
  2. Using your hands, press the dough into a square about 5x5" and be sure it's evenly flat.
  3. Place in the freezer for about 10 minutes while you melt your chocolate and coconut oil together. Place the desiccated coconut into a shallow bowl and set a side.
  4. Remove dough from the freezer and cut into 9 evenly sized squares. Dip each square into the chocolate using a fork and let the excess chocolate drip off before placing the chocolate covered square into the desiccated coconut, rolling it around until it's completely covered. Once all the squares are coated in chocolate and covered in coconut, place them in the freezer for 20 minutes for chocolate to set before serving.
  5. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or a cool place.

Notes

For paleo sub coconut flour for the oats.
