Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites (paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, grain-free)

Today was the final day of challenges for our HubSpot Academy team.

Chris, Lindsay and myself did 30-days of paleo.

Rachel did 30-days vegan.

And Dee Dee did 30-days of no carbs.

That’s almost 1/2 of our team having specific dietary restriction for 30-whole days. And if you’ve tried to cook or bake for a group that has such dietary restrictions, you know it can be difficult.

Enter the chocolate chip cookie dough bites. They’re paleo. They’re gluten-free. They’re dairy-free, egg-free and grain-free. And most of all – they’re delicious! Actually, they’re surprisingly delicious. I’ve made many paleo sweets over the past two years and nothing compares to these. They’re so simple, anyone can make them.
