CLEAN Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Amazeballs

Pin It If you know me, you know I have a major sweet tooth. I've tried everything: completely cutting myself off from sweets (in which case, I ate just about everything in sight to make up for the dissatisfaction of not eating chocolate, causing me to gain a zillion pounds); having only 1-3 squares of chocolate per night (which is great and all, until the weekend hits); saving it just for the weekend (don't talk to me between Monday-Friday); and finally, saying F it and eating sweets whenever I want.

The point of that rant is to show you I have no clue what the hell I'm doing.

Truth is, I limit my sweet tooth. A lot. I'm pretty good during the day, and must admit weekends I give in on my cheat meal. But during the week, I love something sweet after dinner. I've been resorting to protein shakes, apples and peanut butter, or gnawing off my son's arm. I think popping a few of these will be just what I need. Now if only I can not eat them all in one sitting.

I adapted these from Oxygen Magazine by changing up the chocolate (you know it) and making a few other changes.

Makes about 30 gooey cookie dough bite-sized balls (it took everything out of me not to make a comment about gooey balls):

1 cup quick oats
1 cup natural peanut butter
2 tbsp honey
4 tsp vanilla extract
30 semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup liquid egg whites (pasteurized)
4 tbsp unsweetened coconut almond milk
1 scoop chocolate protein powder (this is optional. If you omit this, use half the almond milk! I use Vega Sport Chocolate)

Using your ginormous biceps, combine all ingredients except chocolate chips and form into balls on wax paper (set on a cutting board or baking sheet). Add one chocolate chip to each ball. Place in freezer and let set for a minimum of 1 hour. Voila!

These balls are a little lopsided, but I'll take it. 
You can then put these bad boys in a freezer-friendly container, and when a sweet craving hits, just pop a few out of the freezer and let thaw for 15 minutes. Enjoy your balls!!!
