Did you ever eat the cookie dough bites at the movie theater? Or maybe you even snuck some cookie dough batter when grandma wasn’t looking? In an attempt to recreate my favorite snack as a kid (and also have some healthy contraband for my favorite flicks), I came up with my own version of cookie dough bites. Not only will they give you a natural boost of energy without the crash, but they also only have 4 ingredients and don’t require an oven.
