Cookie dough raw balls. Need I say more?
Using MOD Blend Pro means this recipe is incredibly easy and takes only a few minutes to throw together.
This recipe is naturally gluten free and refined sugar free. It can also become dairy free or vegan friendly by using coconut yoghurt or another thick, plant based yoghurt in replace of the Greek yoghurt.
The base of these cookie dough balls is buckwheat flour and almond meal.
Buckwheat flour has become increasingly popular and is now available at most (if not all) supermarkets. Buckwheat is incredibly rich in fibre, which promotes regular bowel movements, protects your digestive system and help controls blood sugar levels.
Almonds are one of the best sources of vitamin E. Increased vitamin E intake has been linked to a range of health benefits including lowering the rate of heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer's disease.
These are seriously moreish so be careful - the batch wont last you long!
