Yep, you read it right. PALEO choc-chip cookie dough bites. But wait, there’s more. No, they don’t come with a free set of the sharpest knives you ever did see or an ab curler – sorry, though they are also sugar, gluten and nut free. And, thanks to Tigernut flour (you little angel), high in fibre, prebiotics, magnesium, potassium, iron and vitamins C and E. *insert happy hip wiggle*
So in the spirit of Christmas just because these are too good not to share, we present choc-chip cookie dough bites.
1 cup Tigernut Flour
250g mashed parsnips
¼ cup coconut oil
2 tbsp collagen hydrolysate
1 heaped tbsp. cocoa powder
1 tbsp maca powder
2 ½ tbsp. coconut blossom sugar
¼ cup raw cacao nibs (or dark chocolate chips of your choice)
Peel and chop parsnips. Add to saucepan with water and boil for about 20 minutes.
Drain parsnips and mash with a little ghee. Set aside for a few minutes to cool.
In a food processor combine all ingredients EXCEPT cacao nibs until well mixed.
Once combined add cacao nibs and pulse a couple of times until just mixed.
Form the dough into bite-size balls rolling in your hand and place on a pre-prepared tray lined with baking paper.
Place in the fridge for 3-4 hours or overnight if you prefer them slightly firmer.
Enjoy with a glass of Tigernut milk, as an afternoon snack or a little after dinner treat.
