Quick, easy and dirty. Oh, and oh so good for you.
Do I have your attention now? Thought so.
Remember the days of digging into the raw cookie dough batter and your mom swatting you away saying you’d get worms? Yeah fear not. You now have the ability as an adult, to do this as much as you want, whenever you want… but it has to be plant based of course. Have you ever heard of such a good reason to go green? yeah me neither.
Anyways, these little bombs hit the spot. Tasty, nutritious, and guilt free. Oh but you should never eat with guilt though now should you. We know better right? If we make the wrong step, its much better to embrace it than fight it. But more on that another time.
These cookie dough balls are so easy for that quick afternoon delight, and will keep you fuelled on good fats, tastes and feels.
