cinnamon cookie dough bitesIs there anyone out there who does not like cookie dough? The healthy type of cookie dough, I mean – free of dairy, eggs, processed sugar and flour. I don’t think so. I mean, what’s not to like? If you make them right, they’re sweet, caramely, doughey, gooey and guilt free balls of goodness. Thumbs up from me!

cinnamon cookie dough bitesI enjoyed a couple of them early in the morning, as a pre-workout fueling snack and I also had 2-3 after my run. No better motivation to run faster and faster and finish my miles than knowing that I’m coming back to healthy cookie dough!  cinnamon cookie dough bites

The only bit of warning I feel must come with this recipe is that they are quite addictive. You cannot stop at just one. Or two.
