Vegan & gluten-free cookie dough bites

Now that 2015 has begun, many of us have set New Year’s resolutions that we may or may not keep. For some, these resolutions include changes in diet, like choosing gluten-free options or becoming vegan.

These vegan, gluten-free cookie dough bites are a yummy treat that are very easy to prepare. There’s no baking involved and they can be eaten raw because they don’t contain any eggs. With just five ingredients, they won’t take you more than 20 minutes to make.

Cookie dough bites are, in my opinion, a revolutionary idea in the world of baking. Now you can safely and guiltlessly take part in what’s arguably the best part of baking chocolate chip cookies ― eating the raw cookie dough.

Even if you’re not on a strict gluten-free or vegan diet like myself, you can still enjoy these delicious cookie dough bites.

Ingredients:
-1/2 cup vegan butter or margarine
-3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
-1 tbsp vanilla
-1 1/4 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour
-16 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:
1. With an electric mixer combine butter, brown sugar and vanilla. Beat on high for four to five minutes until smooth and almost fluffy.
2. Add the flour. Mix until well-combined and a dough consistency forms.
3. Stir in chocolate chips.
4. Shape into bite-sized balls. You can eat them right away or freeze them until you’re ready to serve.

If you’re working on a New Year’s resolution that involves healthy eating or any kind of diet, remember that it’s important to treat yourself every once in a while to something delicious. Enjoy!
