Raw Chewy Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Recipe


Super simple raw snacks that couldn’t be healthier for you! They use a healthy meal/weight-loss formula on a mini scale: simple sugars to kill instant hunger cravings, fiber to give the feeling of fullness, lots of protein and healthy fats to keep your body’s metabolism busy for the next few hours, enough to get you to your next meal.

Each ball or cookie is around the 30-50 calorie mark. Eating three or four of these in between meals when you hit an energy slump will refuel your body with all the need macronutrients that you get out of a balanced meal. The added plus comes from superfoods like cacao nibs, honey, and nut butter all which are rich in micronutrients (aka vitamins and minerals) and antioxidants.

Ingredients

5 tbsp raw almond butter
5 tbsp PB2 or other powdered peanut butter (plus more for dusting)
2 tbsp raw vegan or fermented vegan protein powder (unflavored)
2 tbsp raw honey
4 tbsp ground flax
1-2 tbsp Barlean's Organic Coconut Oil
3 tbsp cacao nibs, ground

Grind cacao nibs in food processor. Place in separate bowl. Add all other ingredients to food processor and blend until doughy texture. Mix in cacao nibs. Shape into small bite size balls and dust with additional peanut butter powder. Alternatively, press balls into cookies as pictured below. Store in refrigerator for up to 4-5 days. Makes a dozen to 15 cookies.

Tip: Add more coconut oil if you need to make constancy more wet, or ground flax to get dough more dry.
