Healthy Cookie Dough Truffles recipe that makes it possible to indulge your sweet tooth without risking raw cookie dough but packed with protein power.
(Gluten-free, Dairy-Free, Vegetarian)
There are some days that you just need some good ole cookie dough in your belly. Wouldn’t you agree? I know we have all had our moments with a spoon and edible cookie dough. Now we can eat healthier ‘raw’ cookie dough without the possibility of salmonella poisoning! #Awesomesauce.
These are just a little ball of happiness swirled with delicious mini chocolate chips. You can eat these to get that extra bit of protein in your diet too.
As I was devouring the batter of my healthy and gluten-free chocolate chip cookies last time, I realized I there is no need to bake these I’m just going to eat them.
Eat, eat them all!
What ingredients you’ll need for these cookie dough truffles
- Almond flour
- Peanut butter – you can use any other nut butter you’d like to use based on diet needs.
- Honey – switch this with agave nectar to make vegan, if needed.
- Unsweetened applesauce
- Vanilla extract
- Mini chocolate chips
So many easy ingredients I’d bet you already had on hand.
I wasn’t kidding when I mentioned them for protein intake because man these babies are packed with a all-natural protein punch. Each truffle has around 4 grams of protein each!
No protein powder needed! Which, actually I’m kind of taking a step away from protein powders all together lately and have been using these for pre-workout snacks.
I was selfish with these truffles. I kept them all to myself.
Now if you want the pure delicious dessert cookie dough truffles here is the recipe.
Looks yummy. Not to nitpick, but I thought you should know that these are not paleo. To be paleo, they would have to exclude the peanut butter. Looks tasty though.
Hi Pam! Thank you, you are correct they are not STRICT paleo. That’s why I list them as primal. I do not by any means consider myself paleo, If I would have to ‘label’ my diet I would say more primal since I eat peanut butter(legumes), potatoes and rice on occasion. You can easily sub these for a another nut butter if you are on a strict paleo lifestyle. Fresh ground almond butter would work great in a replacement for the peanut butter. 🙂
