Almond butter chocolate chip


I've gotten a lot of requests for my raw cookie dough ball recipe, which is on my Paleo no bake chocolate chip cookie dough almond butter bars recipe but I wanted it to have a place for itself.  It's worth it.  These little balls are outrageous.  They're so easy, only a few ingredients and no bake/no mess.  Everything mixes up in one bowl and it's done! They taste like Chips Ahoy cookie balls.  They get hard and almost crunchy in the fridge. I'm telling you these are just perfect.  They're salty and crunchy and chocolatey all at the same time.  

The almond butter balls are just a variation.  They are a little softer and also delicious.  Any nut butter can be used, I love cashew butter because it's so smooth and creamy and reminds me most of peanut butter. The sugar cookie balls are like a raw almond flavored sugar cookie.  

You can substitute coconut oil in any of these, but I definitely prefer real butter.  I hope you're not afraid of butter.  It's an excellent source of saturated fat, vitamins and minerals.  If you can get it raw and grassfed, even better!  I am butters #1 fan and we go through a ton here. Even my dairy sensitive kids can tolerate it.  

So here we go.  These are real easy.  Just melt the butter, mix them up, refrigerate a little bit, ball them up and refrigerate a little longer to harden.  Let them harden!  I know you want to eat them right away but they get so much better over a few hours! They make between 10-14 balls, the chocolate chip makes about 14,  almond butter about 12 and sugar cookie about 10/11.

  2. I just made these and they're great. But a word of caution, use the coconut sugar and not something like rapadura or sucanat. The taste is too strong and will overpower the batter.

  3. I'm going to your recipe to freeze in little chunks to add to a homemade paleo ice cream! I love cookie dough texture.
