Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls

CCK’s version of a Chinese proverb:

She who has cookie dough is never alone.

There are two explanations for this. One: if you have cookie dough, your friends will all want some too, and thus they will gravitate towards you. And two: even if your friends do not come running (which, by the way, means you have super-odd friends), you’ve still got cookie dough to keep you company!

Above, a delicious batch of Chocolate-Chip Cookie Dough Babies.

My friends were all busy yesterday, so I made new friends. Chocolate friends. Healthy and sugar-free cookie dough balls that taste exactly like way better than cookie dough Larabars.

If you have not tried this recipe yet, I highly recommend it!!

I devoured my new friends. 

Without remorse.

Yeah, maybe you don’t really wanna be friends with me. 😕

Mmmm my friends are so yummy: Cookie Dough Babies.

Questions of the Day:

Do you ever like to have “alone” time?  
What do you do when you’re alone? Read, go for walks, do yoga…

I love my friends; I really do. And they come over a lot. But sometimes, I just want to be by myself, relishing the quiet and not feeling like I have to entertain or talk to anyone!

The Healthy Dessert Blog:

What do you think of my blog’s new header???

I’m still experimenting, so it may change again. I’d love to hear your honest opinions :).

    I love the new header! I noticed it as soon as I clicked on your blog. It’s so cute!!
    I really like having alone time. I was at cross country camp this past week and didn’t really know anyone, so it was refreshing to just chill by myself when i had down time. By the end of the week I was really looking forward to chatting with my family though!

  2. Lisa Fine says

    The new header is super cute!

    And I think a good snack makes good company when you want some downtime, or when everyone is busy.

    Hope you’re having a good weekend!

  3. Qi Ting @ Misadventures of Fat free Baking says

    Simple and sweet– Love the new header!

    I do like alone time. A lot. I usually bake, run, read, study,surf the net… and most importantly think alone (I never seem to able to think in the presence of other people). I may sound like a loner, my mum has criticised me for it as well, but really, its something I really enjoy 😀

  4. VeggieGirl says

    I like “me time” (alone time) in the mornings – gives me a chance to wake up, do some stretching/yoga, and get ready for the day.

    LOVE the header!

  5. Lisa says

    liking the new header! you have such a fresh face!! (that may sound weird…but its intended as a compliment LOL)
    I like alone time, but only for exercise and pampering myself. like I like to take bike rides alone, and do my nails alone. other than that, I like to be with friends ALL the time. the more the merrier!! 🙂

  6. Amy says

    I like your new header!

    I like to have “alone” time. In fact last night, I had some alone time and I made your Banana Bread for One! I added chocolate chips and they were delicious! Soo easy to make!

    Also I did yoga, watched a show on TLC, and planned my itinerary for my upcoming trip to London!

  7. Aja says

    I love the new header.

    I have too much alone time and I use it to watch tv, or J-Dramas on YouTube, write, blog, sleep, bake, etc.

  8. Amber K says

    As an introvert I CRAVE alone time. Social events take a lot out of me and I need time to decompress.

    To be honest, I barely notice headers. I didn’t even know you had changed it until you mentioned it!

  9. Megan says

    I do like your new header! You look so pretty! (Not that you didn’t before!) The description is very fitting too. I made some pancakes this morning that reminded me of you. Whole grain with coconut extract, fresh diced peaches and cinnamon, topped with homemade coconut butter (thank you CCK), MORE peaches, and cinnamon almonds! I have also made the strawberry pancakes many times since you posted them! 🙂

  10. Balancing Sylvia says

    The new header looks great! No, really it does 🙂 I very much enjoy my alone time but only really early in the morning. I get up and hang out with my morning coffee and read before the hubby and dogs get up. It’s quite peaceful

  11. Alexandra (Veggin' Out in the Kitchen) says

    You look gorgeous in the picture on your header! 😀 And I love the new header, although I did really like the “where healthy tastes naughty” from the last header. Still, the new one is great! 🙂

    I love both alone time and friend time! When I’m alone, I usually read, ride my horse, or bake 🙂

    Oh I made your cookie dough batter dip yesterday and I loved it. Like REALLY loved it! I ate it as a dip, in a sandwich, with a spoon… and I think I dreamed about it last night too 😉 I think I could taste the beans a little bit, but that was probably only because I knew they were there. And I loooove beans so I don’t care if I can taste them a bit! The thickness was PERFECT too! I used 1/4 cup quick oats and 1/4 cup almond milk. I also used peanut butter and then omitted the salt because the pb was salted. Oh and I used six drops of stevia for the sweetener and that was perfect! So yeah, another winner for sure, and I’m already dreaming about making it again! 😀 And probably soon since I doubt this batch will last much longer… And my mom liked it too! She even knew it was supposed to be cookie dough! 🙂 She thought it could be a bit sweeter – we have different taste buds when it comes to sweetness. AND it really passed the test because even my dad liked it! (That’s definitely saying something as he can be picky!) Of course, he thought it could use a bit more sugar too, so I’ll have to make another batch for my parents sometime and make it sweeter. And my dad had no idea there were beans in it! 🙂 (I think I will also put this part of my comment on your cookie dough dip post so others can see how amazing it is and be encouraged to make it themselves! 🙂 )

    Have an amazing rest of the weekend!!!! 😀

      You are SO sweet! And I am also so happy you posted in the other post… because someone else just posted about how she hated it. But guess what… she didn’t follow my recipe at all! It frustrates me when people make a ton of changes to my recipes and then blame me when they go wrong lol.

      You are super-adorable 🙂

  12. Hwesto says

    I LOVE the simple ingredients in these and how simple they are to make are to make.

    And the new header is fabulous!

  13. Lorin says

    I like the new header! Also, I emailed you about my address and stuff, I understand if you’re busy and haven’t gotten to it, but I just want to make sure you got it since I’ve delayed you already about a week for the Chia Seed contest. Thanks!

  14. Lenna says

    I love the new header! The Healthy Dessert Blog – sounds awesome 🙂
    I love my friends, but sometimes it is such a pleasure to have a time spent alone, reading a book, listening to a good music, painting or thinking of new recipes 🙂

  15. Kristi @ Sweet Cheeks says

    I think it’s very important, for me at least, to find the right balance between social time and alone time. I am the type of person who NEEDS that alone time…otherwise i would go insane!

    I adore the new blog header!!!!

  16. Holly @ The Runny Egg says

    I think your header is super cute — I like that picture of you!

    I love alone time — I like to read, exercise, bake, nap 🙂

  17. Alexandra says

    i love your blog header! and i like being alone, too. about your blog header, it’s funny because your hair is brown, “chocolate brown” so it could be like your head is covered in chocolate! =P very cute. you’re awesome!

    xx alexandra

  18. Danni says

    I love having alone time, actually. I guess you could say that I’m a bit of a homebody. When I’m alone I love to cook, bake, read, draw, blog (yay!), exercise, do yoga, meditate, half-heartedly watch television while I exercise…a little boring, but hey. It’s what I do 🙂

    And I really like the header! Oh, and ironically I also made a batch of chocolate chip cookie dough babies yesterday! They are rather fantastic 🙂
