Recipe Notes

LISA’S TIP - I like to raisins into my cookie dough balls, but you can be as adventures as you like, chocolate chips or chopped dried apricots are good combinations. This is a fun recipe for the kids to help with. If you are training for any high energy sport, you can add a couple of scoops of protein powder, adjusting the recipe accordingly. You can also dip the cookie dough ball into melted chocolate after they have set in the fridge for an extra chocolatey decadence, and don't forget to add a whole almond on top!
