Superfood cookie dough

Hi! How’s your morning going? I’m excited to share a decadent and healthy recipe with you today: superfood cookie dough!

First, let’s say congratulations to the PRO Compression leggings winner, Lauren L.! (Check your email for details to claim your prize!) 

I love reading your comments on this morning’s post. Speaking of self care, here’s that recipe I mentioned for healthy cookie dough that’s meant to be eaten raw. It will satisfy your sweet tooth and nourish your body!

Shocker of the year: I made a spherical snack.

The other day, I had a major sweet tooth attack. It wasn’t intense in the way that we needed an emergency drive to The Cravory, but I was definitely in the mood for something sweet. Liv was napping, I was scrolling through Facebook (aka wasting time) and happened upon an energy bite recipe that OTF Point Loma had posted. I had all of the ingredients on hand and decided to add in two of my favorite superfoods: chia seeds and goji berries.

Crisis averted.

Not only do they taste like cookie dough, but also make a fantastic pre-workout treat with an awesome combination of smart carbs, healthy fats and protein. They last in the fridge for up to a week, so they’d be perfect to make in advance to enjoy for a quick and healthy snack.

The only downside: I’m not exactly sure of the recipe yield. Some dough went missing in the creation process ?
