Chocolate Covered Cookie Dough Balls made with Almonds


These are quick to make, use simple ingredients and you can store them in your fridge for up to 14 days and in the freezer for 3 months! They are delicious and can replace your favorite cooke dough flavor – but without the gluten, sugar and dairy! They are also raw and uncooked. A great recipe for children to make. The salt in this recipe gives the illusion that the cookie dough is ‘cooked’, it’s a really important component in this recipe. Add more nibs if you want more ‘chocolate chips’. Love Liana Total time: 15 minutesMakes: 12 – 15 balls


2 cups of almond meal (blended almond)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3 tablespoons maple syrup (or raw honey)
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons cacao nibs
2 tablespoons cacao powder


1. In a bowl mix all the ingredients together (using your hands or spoon) except for the cacao nibs, until well combined.
2. Then add the cacao nibs and mix until they are well incorporated through.
3. Roll the mixture into cookie dough balls.
4. Roll in cacao powder until the outside is covered. Eat and enjoy!

1. The finer your almond meal, the softer your cookie dough balls will be. If you have chunks in your nut meal the balls will have a crunch.
2. You can also make these without rolling them in cacao powder, if you want a less bitter taste on the outside.
