Chocolate Chip Sunbutter
Cookie Dough Bites
This recipe was born out of my love affair with sunflower butter, and also my lack of motivation to clean my food processor.
I LOVE cookie dough bites. But realizing my other two recipes, (Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Dough Bites & Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bites) both require food processors was a rude awakening.
Since when is half-baked glory for the 1%?
Why must I tear apart my kitchen on a daily basis?
Why should Cuisinart have a monopoly on tasty orbs of energy?
Today marks the end of the madness, friends. Just a single bowl, 10 minutes, and a one-way ticket to sweet n' salty Vitamin E-packed perfection.

Here comes the sun, baby.
Total time: 10 min
Makes: 10 Bites
1/2 cup sunflower butter
3 Tbsp maple syrup
1/2 cup blanched almond flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup dark chocolate chunks or chips
pinch of salt (if sunflower butter not already salted)
Begin my stirring together the sunflower butter and maple syrup in a medium-sized bowl.
Then add in the almond flour, oats, vanilla and sea salt (if needed), and mix until a thick dough forms.
Finally, fold in the dark chocolate chunks and roll into about 10 large bites.

If you have kids, eat food, or like joy,
I seriously can't recommend them enough!
