It’s my party and I’ll eat cookie dough if I want! These Funfetti Clean Eating Cookie Dough Bites are eggless, flourless and refined sugar free. Sweetened only by organic honey and maple syrup, you better believe I’m enjoying each and every one of these bites today. Especially since it’s the big 3-0 and no birthday celebration is complete without the word “funfetti.”
Whhatt?….I can’t believe I’m 30 years old! It feels like yesterday I was playing with barbies and sliding down a slip-and-slide in my back yard. Where did the time go? I’m not ready to be an adult! I can’t really complain though, I’m still carded every where I go and get the occasional “you look to young to have a kid” look on the street. And for that I will thank my parents for passing down some good genes :).
Lucky for me, my best friend is visiting for the weekend. We have been friends since elementary school and grew up a block away from each other. So, you know what that means…we are basically going to pretend we are still kids (at least for a few days). Girl talk, swimming, popcorn, staying up late, the usual. Ok, maybe not staying up late. But definitely waking up in the middle of the night because of a baby. Same thing, right?
While our slumber parties may not be exactly the same, at least we can still have fun together! Making and enjoying these Funfetti Clean Eating Cookie Dough Bites, is definitely on the list. I’m pretty sure it’s a rule to eat something with rainbow sprinkles on your birthday.
In a blender, combine 2/3 cups oats and 1 5oz container cashews. Pulse slowly, so that you do not over mix the ingredients. You do not want to end up with a creamy nut butter, instead of a powder like consistency we are striving for. Transfer mixture into a large bowl, then add 4 Tbsp honey, 2 Tbsp maple syrup, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, 1/2 tsp almond extract and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Stir well.
Don’t stress about baking for your next party. These Funfetti Clean Eating Cookie Dough Bites are no-bake, no-sugar, no-gluten, no-dairy and TOTALLY awesome. They are a simple alternative to the usual sugary, calorie filled cupcakes and cookies!
