Life gets busy so it’s nice to have some grab-and-go snacks on hand. The only problem? Pre-made snacks are usually packed with sugar, oil, and unhealthy preservatives. When the calendar starts filling up, I make a few batches of these super simple, filling whole food plant-based nutty cookies to slip into my bag for emergency snacking. No refined sugar, no added oil… just hearty delicious goodness.
Bonus: this vegan cookie dough can be eaten raw! Just form it into small balls for a quick energy snack or on the go.
