Cookie Dough Balls

A healthy alternative to cookie dough.   This is one of my favourite snacks.  They are perfect for a on-the-go, or for when you just need a little pick me up.  You can add sugar free chocolate chips to make them 100% refined sugar free, or add dried fruit! Dark chocolate chips are perfectly fine as well.

Instructions: 

  1. Blend the cashews and oats until a powder emerges.  
  2. Add the honey and maple syrup until well combined.
