No-Bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Balls
We made kid-friendly, mom-approved, no-bake chocolate chip cookie balls, and we all had a blast making and eating them.
I love having a quick-healthy-easy-fun treat recipe on hand to help my littles navigate their way around the kitchen and learn about food and how to follow instructions, and @SerenagWolf’s #DudeDiet “Chocolate-Almond Cookie Dough Bites” is just that!
I subbed peanut butter for almond butter and it was still perfection.
Make these today (even if you need an adult-only batch):
1 c oat flour (pulsed whole oats in Vitamix; food processor works too)
2/3 c smooth peanut butter
1/2 c honey
2 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 c chocolate chips, + extra for little fingers
Note: the peanut butter appeared a little drier than almond butter so I added a little almond milk to make the dough easier to mold
Mix, taste, roll, taste, refrigerate, taste, and Tra-La!

Bonus points if you can guess which cookie balls were made by mom, and which cookie balls were made by the boys.
These will continue to be a rotating fave in our house, and they also happen to be #DadApproved.
AND the boys now understand one of my favorite baking rules: if it breaks off you can eat that piece!
