Healthy Cookie Dough Balls Anyone?

I hope everyone is having a fantastic holiday weekend and not doing anything I wouldn't do..... yeah I know, I know, that pretty much leaves nothing out. BUT... that means your weekend is fun packed full of craziness and some booking reading (hey we can't be Wild & Crazy kids all the the time.... please tell me someone remembers the show Wild & Crazy Kids?! Sorry distracted, oh bunny, sort of kid today.)

In honor of a holiday weekend that means fantastically unhealthy food with beer for hydration (this will probably be me at some point over the weekend, can't say no to an ice cold beer ALL the time.) I wanted to share a recipe that I found while searching the interwebs. I have not tried it yet, but will be doing so after my post holiday weekend shopping.

I found the recipe at Running With Spoons, where I found a tone of great stuff. I love this blog and highly recommend you take a look see. The recipe I fell in interwebs love with is Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Balls, she had me a chocolate and again at cookie dough. Pitter patter my little heart. It only takes 5 ingredients to whip up these bad boys, that's right FIVE. Even my baking challenged self can probably pull these off. In fact there is no baking involved.

Below is a picture of the recipe found on Running With Spoons, you can find the recipe there as well. I can not wait to try this. If you try it before I get to, please let me know in the comments what you think and make sure you go tell Amanda at Running With Spoons what you think too.

  1. Hey Brooke! Did you just say healthy and cookie dough in the same sentence? You had me at cookie dough :) I'm in love with the stuff! Who isnt? Oh yeah, my fiance. Have a great weekend.

  2. Running With Spoons... lots and lots of great recipes. They make my inner foodie diva jump up and down and clap. Wait, your fiance isn't a fan of cookie dough... I will hold in my judgement... but there is definitly and eyebrow raise going on right now.
