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.
