Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie Dough Balls

I love cookie dough! I have been known to, on occasion, make a batch of cookies just so I can eat a few big spoonfuls of the dough.

I have never been too worried about the raw egg in it but I know people are so when I saw this recipe on Keep It Sweet I wanted to give it a go.

Here is what you need,

¾ cup all purpose flour
1 cup rolled oats
½ cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup maple syrup
¼ cup applesauce
1 tsp vanilla
¼ cup semi sweet mini chocolate chips

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour and oats. Use an electric mixer to beat all of the wet ingredients together until well combined. Stir in the flour mixture until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips. Use a cookie scoop to spoon 1 or 2 tablespoons of dough, roll into balls and place on prepared baking sheet.

Freeze until balls are firm. You can keep them in the fridge or freezer, and eat as needed!
They are really good! 

So if you are looking for a cookie dough fix and you don’t want to make cookies, try this out. It is a good substitute.
