Diabetic-Friendly Snack: Chocolate Chip Bites
Share:

No matter if you’re a child, diabetic, or just looking for the perfect snack, these egg-free, low sugar cookie dough bites are great for the whole family!

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cups of oats
  • 1 cup of almond flower
  • 1 can of rinsed and drained low sodium garbanzo beans
  • 2 tsp of vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp of salt
  • ½ tsp of cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup of maple syrup
  • ½ cup of chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Add together the oats and the almond flour. It is recommended to blend these together in a food processor with the s-blade. Mix/process together until it is formed into a fine powder (~60 seconds)
  2. Add in the rest of the remaining ingredients except the chocolate chips. Process all together until a smooth batter is formed. At this point it will look like cookie dough batter! Tip: might be helpful to stop the food processor half way when mixing to scrape everything off of the sides. If the dough looks dry, add 1 to 2 tbsp of water and mix.
  3. Transfer dough into a mixing bowl and add in chocolate chips.
  4. Using a cookie scoop (if you don’t have one, a tablespoon measuring spoon works), roll dough into bite size balls, put them in the fridge and let them cool for at least 4 hours.
  5. Take out of fridge and ENJOY!
