80--- Double Chocolate Faux Dough Bites

I got on the bandwagon.

The cookie dough-like balls made with healthful whole ingredients bandwagon.

Not a bad place to be.

If you like double chocolate chip cookie dough and would like to be able to eat it more often that is.

These are a great, wholesome snack for kiddos and adults alike.

Double Chocolate Faux Dough Bites
Makes 16

8 oz no sugar added prunes
3 Tbsp walnuts
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
3 Tbsp dark chocolate chips, chopped
1 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp almond milk

Place prunes and walnuts in a food processor and chop finely.  Add remaining ingredients, reserving almond milk until the end, and mix until a puree is formed (Note: your puree may be more like a pureed ball- that is fine).  Add almond milk for moisture, if needed, and mix.  Make sure that all ingredients are evenly combined.

Scoop ~2 Tbsp mixture out of the processor and roll in your hands to form a tight ball.  Repeat with remaining mixture to form 15-16 balls.  Cover and refrigerate for storage.

  1. these were delicious and satisfied my sweet craving! thanks for sharing

  2. I was hoping the cocoa powder and chocolate chips would mask the taste of the prunes but no such luck. These are really PRUNEY and not in a good way! My husband and I ate a few and threw the rest away. I think they'd be much better with dates instead of prunes if you don't mind the higher sugar content.

  3. I'm sorry that you didn't love them- everyone else really has!
