Cookie Dough Balls (MINI) toppers

Cookie Dough Balls

Yield: 1 cup packed cookie dough

1/2 cup unsalted cashews
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour (I used spelt)
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1.5 tbsp natural cane sugar (I used organic maple flakes)
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 tbsp + 1/2 tsp pure maple syrup (I used 3 tablespoons then I added 1 tablespoon of honey because it was still dry)
2 Tablespoons mini chocolate chips

Directions: In a food processor, add the cashews and oats and process until it forms a fine crumble. Now add in the salt, sugar, and flour and process for a few seconds more. Add in the maple syrup and vanilla and process until combined. It will be sticky, but this is normal! Add in your chocolate chips and stir by hand or process. Form into balls. Store in freezer.


Here is the original recipe from Oh She Glows.

**This made 45 teensy little balls. You can see from the pic how big the melon baller compared to my fingers. These are about as big around as maybe a dime. The whole idea is to just use them as toppers for things like fro yo, oatmeal, yogurt, whatever!
