Raw chocolate chip cookie bites. Vegan. Gluten free.
My youngest daughter had her wisdom teeth removed and have been eating all the cold food she can handle. I knew these would be a fun treat for her versus all the smoothies, ice cream and kombucha. Turned out that everyone loved this sweet little treat on a very warm day. I’m also thinking how good this will be stirred into homemade vegan ice cream!! These were sweet, salty and yeah—the chocolate, a winner every single time. These are the quintessential summer treat.
I kept these little bites looking like I was going to bake them. You can totally roll them out into ball shapes if you prefer or flatten as a raw cookie. Sprinkles would also be super cute subtracting out the chocolate (gasp!) for more a sugar cookie twist.
Okay let’s get this super easy, quick recipe started so you can be eating these asap!
Prepare a pan or dish by lining with parchment paper. Also use a mini scoop that you would use for cookies or a tablespoon.
Cream your butter and sugar together in a bowl or in a stand mixer with a paddle. Once blended and creamed together, then proceed to add your vanilla, flour and sea salt. Then finally, add in your chocolate chips. Scoop out the dough and place on the prepared pan – you can roll into balls or leave them as below. I place in the freezer for about 20 minutes to chill and firm up. I stored in an airtight container in my fridge. The dough can also be rolled into smaller bites and added to homemade vegan ice cream or smoothies.
