How to make this recipe
This recipe couldn't be simpler. Mix all the ingredients together and grab a spoon! You can refrigerate it to harden it if you'd like, but if you're ready to eat your cookie dough...go ahead!
This recipe makes enough for 1-2 people to enjoy as a tasty Paleo treat. Double or triple the recipe and freeze them for later.
Is cookie dough without eggs safe to eat?
The danger with eating raw cookie dough is the risk of getting salmonella from the raw egg. But there's no eggs in here.
Most cookie dough also has wheat flour, which is best not to eat raw. But this recipe uses coconut flour. Since coconut flour is just coconut meat, it's completely safe to eat raw.
What are cookie dough bites made of?
Normally cookie dough bites are made with butter (or vegetable oils), wheat flour, and plenty of refined sugar. These are made differently to be gluten free, grain free, dairy free, and Paleo.

It should keep for about a week in the fridge. Alternately, you can make a double batch and freeze balls for later.
