The star of this show is really the JOI plant base. It’s smooth texture makes it the ideal building block for these edible cookie dough bites! It’s buttery, mild, and provides the exact indulgent texture these bites need.
By combining JOI with a little bit of almond flour to help it all come together, it starts to form what looks like cookie dough! Mix in your favorite dairy-free chocolate chips and top with flaky sea salt. You have yourself edible cookie dough bites!
Roll them into balls or simply eat it with a spoon, we won’t judge! If you can resist not eating it all in one sitting, store in the fridge for up to a week! Let it come slightly to room temperature before enjoying again.
