Raw Cookie Dough Bites

Posted by on Aug 27, 2013 in Recipes | 0 comments

When I’m not on the road, I make about 2 batches of almond milk a week and so I have no shortage of almond pulp lying around. I hate the idea of throwing it away.  Some people dehydrate it to make almond meal, but that’s a bit too fussy for me (the simple in the name of this blog is there for a reason!).  So usually I use it up by making bite-sized, raw, snacks.  They are not only a great way to use almond pulp, but they are also healthy, nutritious and delicious and great to have on hand for a quick bite.  You’ll likely see a ton of recipes on this blog that are variations on that theme!

This recipe is for Raw Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough bites.
