Walnut Dark Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls

I had the choice last night of either bringing a side or a dessert to our small group. My question: is there really any decision that needs to be made?! Dessert any day! 🙂

Yesterday was busy, so I didn’t have a chance to run to the store. You know what that meant…raiding my fridge and pantry and making something out of what I had on hand.

Well, it certainly helped that I had some inspiration…and that inspiration came from Dimple over at Shivaay Delights. She recently made these delicious looking chocolate snowballs (which I do hope to try at some point). Her recipe inspired me to make a ball of yumminess that was low-glycemic and that I didn’t actually have to cook! 🙂 Thanks Dimple!

WALNUT DARK CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE DOUGH BALLS

*Created by Lori at Creating Beauty in the Kitchen

Serving Size: 10-12 Balls

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup whole walnuts, food processed
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • Fresh squeezed juice from 1 whole orange

Directions:

  • After measuring out the walnuts, put them in a food processor until they become small pieces.
  • Cut the orange in half, and squeeze all the juice from both sides into a large bowl.
  • Melt the coconut oil, and add it to the juice.
  • Add the honey and vanilla to the juice mixture, and mix thoroughly.
  • In another bowl, combine the flour, small pieces of walnuts, cinnamon, and chocolate chips, mixing well.
  • Now combine all the ingredients together in the large bowl.
  • Make small balls with the dough, placing them on a non stick baking pan, or you can line another dish with wax paper and use that. Just make sure the balls are not touching one another.
  • Refrigerate until ready to eat.

    I love that these have all natural ingredients. When I make them, I will be using pecans, instead of walnuts as I don’t like walnuts, but I have been told any nut will work, so feel free to experiment!! I am so excited to try these!!!
