Cookie Dough Balls

Want to leave a special treat for Santa? If he is anything like me, he will love these with a glass of milk.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls

1/2 cup unsalted cashews
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup oat flour (or whole wheat pastry flour)
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1.5 tbsp natural cane sugar
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
3-4 tbsp pure maple syrup (or a bit more if dough is too dry)
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips

Directions: In a food processor, add the cashews and oats and process until it forms a fine crumble. Now add in the salt, sugar, and flour and process for a few seconds more. Add in the maple syrup and vanilla and process until combined. It will be sticky, but this is normal! Add in your chocolate chips and stir by hand or process. Form into balls. Store in freezer.

Yield: 1 cup packed cookie dough
