Today I will be helping kids in my oldest son's preschool class make these cookie dough snowballs. Since the school is a nut-free zone, I am using sunbutter in place of the peanut butter. At home I use peanut butter. It's less expensive and my favorite flavor. These little cookie dough bites are delicious and have lots of healthy stuff in them too.
Cookie Dough Snowballs
1. In a large bowl or mixer, mix together the raw almond butter, honey and vanilla until creamy and well blended.
2. In a separate bowl, mix together the coconut flour, ground flax seed and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix well to combine.
3. Use your hands to knead the dough to thoroughly combine. If it's too wet, add a bit more coconut flour. If the dough is too dry and doesn't hold together well, knead in one teaspoon of water. Fold in the chocolate chips or carob chips. (You can do this in the mixer too.)
4. Then, scoop out tablespoon-size portions and roll into one-inch balls using your hands to create a bite-sized treat. Separate balls onto a parchment lined cookie sheet and freeze until firm. Then transfer to an airtight container to refrigerate. Store in the refrigerator or freezer.
5. To make snowballs, roll cookie dough balls in coconut before freezing.
