Cookie Dough Bon Bons

Make protein-fat-fiber-polyphenol bombs that taste like candy! Get the recipe.
My cookie dough bon bons are made with just three ingredients and they taste like candy. But actually they're rich in good fat, healthy fiber, plant protein (the lectin free kind), and super antioxidants called polyphenols. You won't believe how easy these come together. And good thing, because the faster you make them, the sooner you can pop one (or two) in your mouth. Read on for the recipe.
I've said it once and I'll say it again, I love a sweet treat now and then. And when it's actually good for me, I'm all in. I thought long and hard about what I'd call these tasty confections. And since protein-fat-fiber-polyphenol bombs was good, cookie dough bon bons sounds way better, don't you think?
To make these decadent, yet healthy, chocolate candies you'll need Gundry MD ProPlant In vanilla flavor. If you don't have it, I can help. Use my ambassador discount for best price.

Next, you'll also need blanched almond butter. I like Barney Bare because it has no added sugar or salt. But if you use Barney Bare, be sure to add a dash of sea salt to bring out the flavors. For variations, you could also try macadamia butter, hazelnut butter, or pili nut butter. I like tossing in some dark chocolate chips and coating my protein/fat/fiber bombs in chocolate.
Now let's get to the recipe, shall we?
LFG COOKIE DOUGH BON BONS
1 Scoop Gundry MD ProPlant Vanilla
1/3 Cup Barney Bare
Pinch Iodized Sea Salt (optional)
Handful 72% Cacao Chocolate Chips (optional)
(More chocolate for coating)
Step 1: Mix ProPlant and Nut Butter
In a medium bowl, mix the ProPlant vanilla and nut butter together until smooth. If you're using an unsalted nut butter, be sure to add a pinch of iodized sea salt, too. And if you like chocolate chip cookie dough, throw in a handful of at least 72% cacao dark chocolate chips. The darker the better.
Step 2: Roll into balls
I used my Teavana "one perfect cup of tea" measuring spoon to get even balls. Roll the dough into nine total balls about one inch in diameter. Place the balls onto a parchment lined plate.
Step 3: Coat balls in chocolate
Finally, melt about 4 ounces of dark chocolate. Lift each bon bon, spoon a little melted chocolate underneath, and replace bon bons on chocolate. Then spoon the rest of the generously over each ball and let the molten chocolate completely cover them from top to bottom. If you like sprinkles, use a Keto one made from tapioca starch, erythritol and natural colors, of course. Or sprinkle a few roasted cacao nibs on top. Pop the plate in the fridge and go for a walk.
When you return, reward yourself with a healthy snack that tastes like candy.
