Sometimes I feel like I am constantly mixing up batches of “cookie dough balls” for my kids. They have truly been a God send for (particularly my pickiest princess…). My two kids go through a single batch in just about 3 days, I swear. And if I would let them, they’d probably finish it off sooner! Haha. Definitely a staple in our household since becoming vegan.
Fortunately, these “cookie dough balls” I’m referring to are SUPER good for them! So, sure it gets annoying making them every few days…. but it’s a total win-win for my kids nutrition and I would never argue with that.
I seem to have the most success with the ones made from nut butters and maple syrup rather than those made from nuts and dates in the food processor. Mostly because of the textural difference. Scarlett has a very obvious preference for things with a smoother, cookie dough-like consistency, rather than the semi-crunchy nature of the ones made from whole nuts. [click to continue…]
