(Mostly) Raw Cookie Dough Bites

These aren’t entirely raw because I have no idea where to find raw oats and I prefer the taste of maple syrup to agave nectar.

However, I didn’t bake these in the oven – so they are raw enough to suit my standards!

I’m sure you’re wondering if these truly taste like cookie dough? Yes, absolutely. But they’re not nauseating as raw cookie dough can sometimes be – there’s just enough mellow sweetness, with a subtle hint of spicy cinnamon. They’re pretty awesome, actually. Very more-ish – I polished these off in less than a week!

Just make them to find out for yourself, ok?

    Where do you get your inspiration for post ideas? I’ve been thinking of coming up with my own blog but don’t know if I could write as good as you. Any tips for a newbie to the blogging world?

    It depends on how big you make them. I usually get about 15 or so.
