Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

I’ve alway been a fan of LARABARs but the price can often get a little hefty.  The other day I found them on sale at Safeway and was leased to see a flavor I hadn’t tried.  Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough!!!  Where has this been hiding for all these years?  I thought I had tried them all but guess not.  I picked one up thinking The Love Nugget and I could share it at the park.  However, when I opened it up and took that first bite, i decided to keep it all to myself.  Which is quite the task with a three year old.

I immediately flipped it over to read the ingredients and was thrilled to see there were just a few and that I had them all at home.  So naturally the next day I had to whip up my own version 🙂

In moderation of course as we’re trying to cut back on our sugar intake even in it’s natural form 🙂
