Cashew Carob/Choc Chip Cookie Dough Bites

A recipe for Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites has been doing the rounds on Facebook this week, it was originally shared by Marlenes Skinny Friends-Weight Loss Support Group.  With a few substitutions it easily became Oscar suitable and as I had some carob buttons to use up, Failsafe as well.  Although having said that, cashews and vanilla need to be limited on the Failsafe or Elimination diet, so it would be best not to eat them all at once  – but they are very moorish!

These biscuits also tick lots of other boxes: no egg, no sugar, no dairy, no wheat.

6. Allow to cool on the tray.


Low Chemical / Failsafe, Very High Amines

While this recipe is technically low chemical if using the soy carob buttons; vanilla and cashews need to be limited on the Failsafe or Elimination diets, so these should be treated as an occasional food.

This recipe will be gluten-free if using gluten-free baking powder, and dairy-free if dairy-free chocolate or carob is used.

The biscuits will be cooked on the outside but still moist on the inside.
