• Creamy, No-Cook Chocolate Chip Balls

    January 17, 2014

    Remember those Creamy Chocolate Chip Balls that I mentioned yesterday? Well, here’s the recipe! And, oh my goodness, they are incredible. Definitely make them!

    Creamy, No-Cook Chocolate Chip Balls

    These little bite-size treats literally melt in your mouth thanks to some smooth cinnamon cream cheese, but they’re not all mush either. Cooled coconut oil gives them a firm texture and a subtle sweetness while chocolate chips and rolled oats add a bit of crunch and chew to these delicious dessert balls. Bonus: They are relatively low in calories!

    Ingredients:

    Directions:

    1. Combine all ingredients, except chocolate chips, until fully blended. (Blend by hand or in a small food processor.) Once blended, stir in chocolate chips.
    2. Roll batter into 1-inch balls and place on wax paper on top of a plate or tray.
    3. Place plate/tray in refrigerator to cool balls for 2+ hours.
    4. Remove from refrigerator and enjoy immediately.

    Makes 7-8 balls

    Mmm…. I bet these would be just as good with some honey in there instead of the sugar :) I love little snacky things so I can’t wait to try this recipe out!

    I actually made them with honey the first time (they were tasty), but I liked the sugar version better! :)

    How many calories in each ball?

    Reply

    Tina January 17, 2014 at 2:20 pm

    It depends on how big you make them, but 80-90 calories per ball.

    Did you find that the coconut oil got a little hard when it hit the cold cream cheese? I was making a Paleo bread the other day and melted my coconut oil and then added cold eggs… I ended up with chunks of hardened oil! Cooking fail… :)

    Tina January 17, 2014 at 2:28 pm

    The melted coconut oil actually helped soften the cream cheese even more!

    Coconut oil…does it have a stong coconut flavor? In other words, would someone who does not like coconut enjoy this recipe? :)

    Tina January 17, 2014 at 2:47 pm

    You can taste coconut, but it’s not super strong… more cream cheesy!

    I love using cheese – what a surprise ingredient! I like that these balls do not have a nut butter. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love nut butters, but this is a great new take on a familiar recipe.

    I just made these with a scoop of vanilla protein powder and then no sugar! Really good!

    I love making little bites like these but I never thought to put in laughing cow! What a genius idea!

    Kate @ Coffee with Kate January 17, 2014 at 7:19 pm

    These looks so good, and a delicious treat. I’d probably eat a few in one sitting … I’m going to try them and sub in stevia for sugar.

    I can’t find the laughing cow wedges at my local grocery store. Any recommendations for a substitute?!?

    Tina January 17, 2014 at 9:12 pm

    Cream cheese and cinnamon?

    Lindsay January 17, 2014 at 8:52 pm

    I’ve been waiting for this recipe since you mentioned them! I’m going to try them to Lorna, although I don’t think that I can get that type of laughing cow!

    does laughing cow have any lactose free cheese products on the market?

    I have the hardest time finding flavored Laughing Cow cheese! If I ever find the Cinnamon Cream Cheese, I’m making these.

    i made something similar the other day with oats, peanut butter, honey, vanilla, ground flaxseed, and chocolate chips. yum! i’ll have to try these too!

    I substituted brown sugar for white sugar and added some chopped walnuts. I bought the Laughing Cow cinnamon cream cheese at Walmart. These are very easy to make and definitely worth trying.

    The Laughing Cow has aspartame :(

    I love your recipes but where is the nutritional information for them? It’d be nice to see how many calories these creations are as well as fat content, sugar, etc.

    So I saw these and was SO excited to try them …. I’ve made three batches within one week…. I may have a problem! (But this last time I added flax seed so that makes it like a fiber bar right? ;-) )

    Can I make these without the oats? I am trying my hardest to eat primal :) Thanks!
