Chocolate Chip Vegan Cookie Dough Bites

In honor of National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day, May 15th, we have a delicious completely Vegan NO-BAKE recipe for you!

Blend all ingredients except chocolate chips, mix chocolate chips after blending. Form into balls and chill for one hour.

1 cup of raw cashews
1 cup of almond meal
1 cup of oats
1 cup of coconut oil
1 tsp. of vanilla extract
2 scoops of Complete Pea Protein in the Delicious Chocolate Flavor
8-10 pitted dates
1 tsp. of honey
1 cup of dark chocolate chips
To finish: Sprinkle with Himalayan sea salt

This recipe is high in protein, full of antioxidants, good fats & has no added sugar!

The flavonoids in dark chocolate help reduce insulin resistance by helping your cells to function normally and regain the ability to use your body's insulin efficiently. Dark chocolate also has a low glycemic index, meaning it won't cause huge spikes in blood sugar levels.

Raw almonds are filled with healthy fats. While they do contain a small amount of saturated fat, most of the fat in almonds is monounsaturated fat, which is known for its ability to promote healthy cholesterol levels and cardiovascular health.

The medium chain triglycerides in coconut oil have been shown to increase 24 hour energy levels by as much as 5%, which can lead to significant weight loss over the long term.

The health benefits of coconut oil include hair care, skin care, stress relief, cholesterol level maintenance, weight loss, boosted immune system, proper digestion and regulated metabolism. It also provides relief from kidney problems, heart diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, HIV, and cancer, while helping to improve dental quality and bone strength. These benefits of oil can be attributed to the presence of lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid, and their respective properties, such as antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-fungal, antibacterial and soothing qualities.
