These Healthy Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Dough Bites taste just like an old-fashioned oatmeal raisin cookie that decided on a lifestyle change. These are the new and improved version. Since they’re made without refined sugar, are gluten free, require no baking and packed with filling protein.
You not only get your cookie craving satisfied in the most delicious way, you also get the health benefits of all the ingredients.
I love to make a double batch of these and then pop them in the freezer. They don’t contain much liquid so you can eat them straight out of the freezer, no problemo. They are just as delicious and will last even longer if stored in the freezer.
Mid afternoon is the time of day I begin to crave something sweet. I am hitting the afternoon lull and my body instantly craves some sugar as a pick-me-up. The problem is that if you eat a regular sugary treat you then have a blood sugar spike and then crash. Leading to more exhaustion and you’ve also toppled over that first domino. Which leads to the next. Either more sugar, or salt.
You may have realized you go from salty to sugar cravings.
That is why these Oatmeal Raisin
They taste just like an oatmeal raisin cookie but all whole foods, plant based ingredients and very healthy for you. These are the perfect solution when you are craving a cookie.
I use a food processor for this recipe.
TIP: If you do not have raw almonds or cashews on hand you can sub ⅔ C almond butter instead.
