Paleo Friendly Chocolate-Chip Cookie Dough Bites [Gluten & Dairy Free]

Hello 2014, we’re back! 

It has been FAR too long since we have been able to post, but we’re back and ready for action! 2013 was a very busy and life changing year for us for many reasons, and as a result this year’s resolution is to get (and stay) a little bit healthier hehe. So, we have adopted a semi-paleo; gluten-free, dairy-free & organic as possible diet. Sounds limiting, but I have to admit, one of our favorite treats with this new lifestyle are these Chocolate-Chip Cookie Dough Bites. It’s a new way of enjoying an indulgent treat without the guilt that comes along with it. Not to mention how quick and easy they are to make, truly a win-win situation!
