Hello & Happy Tuesday!!
If there is one thing I love for the holidays, it’s effortless desserts! Especially those that look very involved and meticulous, but underneath it all are so easy! Believe it or not, cookie dough balls or truffles are some of the easiest concepts to throw together and they are always a win win. Since I had not done a cookie dough concept in a while I was on the move to figure out one that would be perfect for Christmas, and the Vegan white chocolate peppermint cookie dough balls were born!
Homemade cookie dough gets a bad rap for being very sweet, processed, containing eggs, and just not an overall healthy choice. However, today you can make a variety of vegan cookie dough recipes with using just a handful of ingredients with the base being almond flour versus the traditional white. What’s also great is that if you don’t want to use the standard maple syrup you can mix up the sweetener with sugar alternatives to make the sugar content even lower.
What’s wonderful about this recipe is that it’s quick, easy, affordable, can easily be made in bulk, has aesthetic appeal, notes of mint, is gluten-free, packs healthy fats and protein through the almond flour, and is perfect for Christmas!
