These no bake, chocolate chip cookie dough bites are a wonderful tasty treat! But definitely make when you can share with a crowd, because these bites are as addictive as they are tasty! Once you pop these into the freezer they become tasty morels of nutritious cookie dough that you will want to make again and again!! I will warn you that the process of making them and rolling them into balls can be quite messy, so this would be a great dessert to make with the kiddos!!
The entire process to make them is about 20 minutes (no cooking). Place oats, walnuts, almonds and salt into a food processor. Pulse until finely ground but not into a paste. Then add in vanilla, and agave, and pulse until combined. Finally put mixture in a bowl and gently fold in chocolate chips. I used mini ones here mainly because I thought they would be cute in this recipe. If you have a mini ice cream scoop that would be best to use here to make them all uniform in size, and probably less messy too. But I just rolled by hand because I always forget to buy those kind of ice cream scoops when I see them. Place on a sheet tray and freeze for about an hour to firm up.
Some people eat these for breakfast, and call them energy cookie dough bites or protein cookie balls. Whatever you eat them, they are a tasty treat you can feel good about! They are loaded with healthy fats, protein, and vitamins and mineral that your body craves. *WARNING consume with others, or you may find yourself in a cookie dough bite haze!! Enjoy!
