No-Bake Fudgy Snow Balls

No oil, no butter, no baking required. There’s much to love about these no-bake cookies, they are healthy, dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free, vegan, and they taste great too.

I’m a lazy baker, I love cookies that require minimal effort. All that’s required to make these is a food processor (I used my mini).

I originally saw these on Snack Girl and decided to give these a try. The verdict is a moist, chewy dough-like cookie. I almost want to call them chocolate cookie dough balls. Perfect for many dietary restrictions.

No oil, no butter, no baking required. There's much to love about these no-bake cookies, they are healthy, dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free, vegan, and they taste great too.

  • 3 tbsp confectioner's sugar

Directions:

  1. Add almonds to your food processor and pulse until ground.
  2. Add dates, cocoa powder, honey, and water. Mix until it forms a sticky mass. If it seems too dry, add a little water, 1 tsp at a time.

  4. Put confectioner's sugar in a bowl.
