Whole Wheat Cookie Dough Bites

Of course, once the heat wave was here, it left almost immediately. Ever since Friday, we’ve had nothing but cloudy skies with cold blasts of wind and rain. Oh, there will be the odd moment the sun will peak out of the clouds, but now it’s like someone turned the dial back on summer and now we’re experiencing the spring weather we missed for most of May.

Um….yay!

Even though it was cold afternoon and there was nothing stopping me from turning on my oven, I still wanted to make this recipe. The rainy weather had me craving cookies, milk and a good book to curl up with. Of course, I ended up doing things a little differently with cookie dough balls, almond milk and cookbooks. ๐Ÿ™‚

Trevor raved about these cookie dough bites and he even said they tasted like the bits of cookie dough in cookie dough ice cream. Of course that meant that I had to try making it, but that of course is a recipe for a later date.

I have to admit, I’m really enjoying doing this whole “no bake” thing and leaving my oven off for the summer. I’m starting to discover a whole new world of desserts and treats. It’s been so much fun, I’m almost tempted to rename the blog “no-bakes here!” (or she no-bakes here!)

Okay, I’m done now. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Just made these and they are yummy!!!! Do you suggest keeping them in the freezer or fridge?

  2. The problem with eating raw cookie dough is not just because of salmonella in eggs, it is also because of the flour that can have e coli. Eating raw flour can make you really sick. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/12/09/eating-raw-cookie-dough_n_1140260.html You could try using almond meal instead, which is fine to eat raw as it is just ground nuts.
