Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Dough Bites
The crazier life gets, the simpler things start to look in the kitchen around here.
Sometimes in the midst of juggling a business, a household, and a moody munchkin - all I need is some quick energy on the fly.
And these no-bake, protein-packed, plant-strong energy bites are just that.
Inspired by the classic cookie, these doughy bites are made from a fully upgraded cast of characters. Whole medjool dates in place of white sugar, oats in place of refined flour, and almond butter in place of processed oils, butters or margarines - get ready for all the tastiness and none of the post-indulgence regret.
Prep time: 10 miN
Total time: 10 min
Makes: 20 Bites
3/4 cup pitted medjool dates, tightly packed
2 cups rolled oats
2 tsp cinnamon
2/3 cup almond butter
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp hemp hearts
2 Tbsp maple syrup
3/4 cup organic Thompson raisins
splash of non-dairy milk
Add all ingredients except for the raisins into a large food processor and pulse until well-combined and uniform in texture.
Transfer mixture to a large bowl and mix in the raisins.
If the mixture is too crumbly to roll, add in some non-dairy milk a tablespoon at a time until the dough is sticky and able to roll into a formed ball.
Roll into about 20, 1-inch bites.
Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for 5-7 days and ENJOY!
