Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bites

From September 12, 2015:

My biggest vice on the planet is sugar. I LOVE sweets. I gave it up for the 7 weeks preceding my wedding this year- all in the name of clear skin, and it was rough. So when I was dying for something sweet the other night (the first day of school), I wanted to make something that would satisfy my sweet tooth but did not contain refined sugars. I was also justifying that it was the Patriot’s home opener so I should have a celebration dessert. I made these and they were OUT OF CONTROL. I am going to make a huge batch next time and leave them in the freezer for those days when I just need dessert. I placed a square of high quality dark chocolate on top mostly because they were sad looking without, but they really didn’t need it. (But let’s be honest, the chocolate didn’t hurt the flavor.)

  •  1 1/2 cups puffed rice cereal, ground in a food processor

  • 2 T coconut oil

  • 2 T peanut butter

  • 1/4 maple syrup

  • 1 t vanilla extract

  • 1/2 cup almond flour

  • fine sea salt

In a large bowl or standing mixer, combine oil, peanut butter, maple syrup, and vanilla and beat until smooth. Add almond flour, cereal and salt, and beat again until combined.  Roll dough into small balls, and place on a parchment lined baking sheet and freeze for 5-10 minutes. Store in a tupperware container or freezer bag in freezer for a quick dessert or snack.
