How do I keep my body lean? I make homemade healthier versions of my favorite desserts! These are the BEST tasting cookie dough balls made from all pure, healthy ingredients. Free of refined sugar, gluten, and dairy as well! These are super delicious fresh and only have about 140 calories for 2 balls. All you gotta do it throw the ingredients in a food processor and form into balls! Seriously though...once you try these you'll never want anything else! You could even warm them up for more deliciousness. These are snicker doodle flavored but you can always play around with different ingredients.
