Raw Cookie Dough Bombons

Raw Cookie Dough Bombons

These little treats are versatile. They can be dipped in chocolate or the chocolate can be omitted making them SCD legal. The add-ins can vary or they can be omitted for a simple cookie dough bite. If you have a nut allergy, you can use seeds instead or if you have a seed allergy, then use nuts. For SCD versions, use almond or cashew both for flour and nut butter, otherwise, experiment with nut and seed combinations such as almond flour + tahini, almond flour + cashew butter, almond or cashew flour + SunFun Butter...You get the picture.

The Mini-Foodies say the are the best!
