I LOVE cookie dough, but rather than buying it from the supermarket and consuming the whole roll in a park somewhere like I did as a teenager (don’t ask), I have made a healthier version and I just had to share.
I wasn’t completely sold on the idea of ‘energy balls’ until I made these. I presumed they would be high calories and taste gross, but have ‘tonnes’ of protein and fats so they gave you energy. I was wrong.
They were so easy to make, only 5-10 minutes and then they can be left in the fridge. I made mine small enough that they could be enjoyed as a snack but didn’t become an over indulgence.
They also genuinely taste like cookie dough. And I would know.
Plus I do feel like they give me an energy boost, or a feeling of satiety that keeps me going until lunch or gives a pre-workout boost!
