Frozen Cookie Dough

Because life’s no fun with Salmonella poisoning.

Really. Raw eggs and the risk of Salmonella. That’s the reason why our mums used to smack us over the head when we reached into the cookie dough bowl when she wasn’t looking.

Now into adulthood, we yearned for something just as tasty. What’s solid about the combination of nuts and chocolate is that these little guys also work as a great energy boosting snack! Still watch how many balls you choose to define as a “snack”, since nuts are high in calories.

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup almonds
  • 2/3 cup walnuts
  • 2/3 cup uncooked oats
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tsp. vanilla (or almond or peppermint extract)
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips

How to:

  1. In a food processor, combine nuts and oats. Puree into a fine meal.
  2. Besides the chocolate, add remaining ingredients into the food processor and combine. Remove and place into a bowl. Stir in chocolate. Form into small balls.
  3. Place in a freezer-safe container and freeze to allow them to harden. Freeze to store.
