That little something something to satisfy a sweet tooth craving?

Or maybe you’re favorite past time is licking the cookie dough bowl (even when mom says no) and sneaking in that last little bite of dough???

I am one who honestly prefers the chocolate chip cookie DOUGH over the cookie and also one who is now avoiding gluten (because I bloat like a mad woman) and dairy (because my skin breaks out like a teenage girl) and I am ELATED to find a healthier sweet alternative that fits my dietary preferences and well, tastes AMAZING.

MEET:

Cookie Dough Energy Balls

Total Time: 15 min.
Prep Time: 15 min.
Cooking Time: None
Yield: 13 servings, 1 ball each

WHAT YOU NEED: 
½ cup all-natural almond butter
¼ cup raw honey
½ cup finely chopped raw almonds (I used slivers and they worked great!)
2½ scoops Vegan Vanilla Shakeology (you could use the regular but the taste of the vegan is wayyyyyy better!)
2 Tbsp. mini semi-sweet (or dark chocolate) chocolate chips (I use the ENJOY LIFE brand – found at Target #yourewelcomemoms) 

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:
1. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. More specifically: I found it easiest to mix the dry almonds and Shakeology, then I added the almond butter, mixed well, then added the honey, mixed well again, and stirred in the chocolate chips. 
2. Roll into thirteen balls, about 1-inch in diameter each. (I used the pampered chef small scoop and it actually got 20 balls – so I adjusted the serving size to be 1.5 balls to match the nutritional breakdown below)
