One of my fave snacks is peanut butter chocolate cookie dough bites. It’s super easy to make and way cheaper then buying $3-$4 bars. No oven needed for this raw sweet treat.
These bites are not only great for adults, but a great snack for kids. It’s even great for 6+month babies, but opt out the salt. Before one babies salt requirement is less then 1g per day, which is mostly met by breastmilk/formula. Extra salt will be a burden to their tiny kidney’s and the kidney’s will not be able to function properly due to the excessive load. It has been proven to cause hypertension in the adult life. With that said skip the salt.
Enjoy this yummy Dar-licious treat. Great snack on the go, perfect for parties, pre or post workout snack, and great for kids lunch box.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie Dough
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup plus 3 tbsp raisins
salt to taste
1/8 cup peanuts
1/8 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
NOTE FOR NEXT TIME:
Try less peanut butter and more raw peanuts so they are thicker and more like bars and less like cookie dough
1) Put all ingredients in food processor and process until a consistent texture
2) Grab a clear plastic wrap/bag and scoop desired amount of batter on the plastic (about 1.5 oz/scoop). Form a ball or bar. The plastic wrap will prevent hands getting dirty
3) Enjoy its Dar- licious ☺️
