If I had to name my very favourite Ben and Jerry’s or Haagen Dazs ice cream combo, it would without doubt be Cookie Dough ❤ As a child I never really understood the point of baking cookies. The dough tasted so much better raw, before it went in the oven. Why ruin it by heating it for half an hour!!
These cookie dough power balls taste delicious as they are, or dipped in a coconut oil and cacao sauce to coat them in chocolate.
INGREDIENTS (makes 15)
150g almond flour
3 heaped tablespoons of nut butter
1 tablespoon of maple syrup
Handful of super fine trail mix – I love this one
Pinch of cinnamon
Half a teaspoon of vanilla paste
Pinch of pink salt
For the chocolate coating
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon cacao powder
1 teaspoon of honey
Handful of sesame seeds
Blitz all the ingredients aside from the trail mix in your food processor. Once the mixture forms a dough, knead the trail mix in with your hands
Break a small piece of the dough off and roll into a smooth ball. Repeat 15 times!
Place the dough balls on a plate and pop in the fridge
If you’d like to add a chocolate coating …
Melt 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and a tablespoon of cacao powder about a saucepan of simmering water
Add a teaspoon of honey to add some sweetness
Allow the chocolate to cool but not completely harden
Roll the chilled dough balls in the chocolate, then roll each one in sesame seeds
