Chewable Crack: Mocha Cookie Dough Bites, No bake, GF

Beware, these are known to destroy will power.  They have that pringle thing going for them, once you pop… what I’m trying to say is they are dangerous, dangerously delicious.  And they go with anything, everything or by themselves.   My liquid crack has taken on a new form, a cookie dough bite form.  And this is just as easy to make.  And they would be perfect paired together!  (Hello lunch 😉 )

I saw my inspiration here, and I changed it a bit but not much.  These are perfect for energy, not only from the coffee but also from the nuts. Consider them a beauty bite too since the nuts have the essential fatty acids to give you a glow and the caffeine to “perk” your skin up.  So basically these are healthy, no seriously- only natural date sugar which is just as sweet as regular.

Try them for a sweet & nutty afternoon (or anytime)  pick me up!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup roasted, salted almonds (LOVE sweet and salty combos)

1/4 cup toasted walnuts

1 tsp vanilla extract

4 pitted dates, soaked in warm water for 10 minutes

2-3 tbsp brewed coffee

1 tsp instant coffee powder

1-2 tsp dark cocoa powder

Directions:

Put almonds and walnuts into blender to make coarse meal.  Add the dates, blend to combine.  Add the rest of ingredients until well combined and no large chunks remain.  Roll into balls if you haven’t eaten everything with a spoon by now 😉
