Cookie Dough Bites Recipe (without chickpeas)
Cookie Dough Balls
As you already know I like chocolate snacks very much. But I wanted to try a gluten free snack this time because I often eat gluten containing products. Do you feel the same way? That’s why I’ll introduce you to gluten free snacks more often. There are some people who can’t eat food containing gluten or don’t want to eat too much of it (like me).
What is Gluten? Is it harmful?
Gluten is a protein from grains which in combination with water becomes the so-called gluten protein. Gluten is therefore found in most grain types such as wheat, rye and spelt. According to this almost all dough and baked goods such as pasta, bread, biscuits and cakes contain gluten. However gluten containing binders are also frequently found in convenience foods.
At the moment it has become a trend to eat food without gluten. But with a balanced diet it is definitely not harmful. Only people who suffer from intolerance or coeliac condition have to live without gluten completely.
A snack without eggs and chickpeas
My Cookie Dough Balls don’t need any chickpeas or eggs. I mainly used vegan butter, cashew butter and almond flour. For the reason that the dough is a bit crumbly you should use a little bit more milk. Apart from that this is a no bake variation.
Cookie batter for spooning?
Actually you don’t have to make Cookie Dough Balls out of it, you can eat the dough raw. This cookie dough does not contain, as mentioned, any egg or baking powder. So you can simply spoon it directly. Basically you can try out different types of cookie dough, for example mix it with coloured sprinkles, dried blueberries, caramel, almonds (nuts), cookie crumbs or peanut butter.
This recipe is easy to copy and consists of only eight ingredients. In my opinion it is a great snack to go or just delicious for in between. I also like to put the Cookie Dough Bites in my Porridge or in my Smoothie Bowl. I like to have delicious chocolate dough in my bowls. Something like that makes me happy. It´s like the Ben & Jerry´s ice cream when you find the biscuits or chocolate pieces. Do you know the feeling? 😀
