1. Salted Cookie Dough Bites

These Salted Cookie Dough Bites are for everyone who thinks cookie dough is better than actual cookies. This chocolate chip cookie dough is made from cashew butter, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract, almond milk, almond flour, chocolate chips and cinnamon. The dough is then rolled into balls, dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with sea salt. The thin coating of chocolate mixed with the soft dough is an incredible combination.
