Coconut Cookie Dough Bites
Updated: Aug 19, 2019
After my two mile swim this morning, I just wanted to eat yummy, rich cookie dough. I wanted something salty and sweet and "caramely," and these we the PERFECT post-workout refuel!! These have only 5 ingredients and high in healthy energy-giving and metabolism-boosting MTCs!! No added sugars or sweeteners. Only good ol' fashioned dates with tons of vitamins, minerals, and potassium -plus the pink salt make it a win for electrolyte replenishment!
16 pitted dates
1/8-1/4 teaspoon of pink salt (depending on how "salted" you like the caramel flavor ;)
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
3/4 cup of loose chunks* of coconut butter
Blend all the ingredients together in a food processor. Roll into balls with the palms of your hands. You can also roll the balls in extra coconut to keep from sticking together!
*Coconut Butter is solid at room temperature in the winter, so it breaks apart in "chunks" :)
You can get all these ingredients from Thrive Market - and they are an awesome deal here! This 20% off your first three orders is the same discount I took advantage of when I started Thrive and I have been able to save so much money!!!
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator -- or at room temperature if they are going to be devoured in a couple days like mine are! ;)
Hope you enjoy!!
