Healthy Chocolate & Tahini Cookie Dough Balls (Vegan, glutenfree)

Healthy Chocolate & Tahini Cookie Dough Balls (Vegan, glutenfree)

These Healthy Chocolate & Tahini Cookie Dough Balls are soft, chewy and full of crunchy nuts & seeds. They make a great vegan protein packed nutritious post swim snack! They are really cute and because the mixture doesn’t spread they keep their little dumpling shape, they were named Cookie Dumplings by the Peachicks.  They are dairyfree, eggfree and glutenfree (contain oats) and are brilliant for lunchboxes and after gym snacks.  They are packed with nutrients, although I would recommend leaving the nuts out for school lunchboxes as a lot of schools have no nuts policies.  These would also be AMAZING with small apple chunks in it!
