30 Second Raw Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Recipe Adapted From:  Real Sustenance
(Gluten/Grain/Starch/Egg /Soy Free/ Low Sugar):

Replace the one tablespoon of water with two tablespoons of yogurt or whey to make these tasty, and raw cookie nuggets, a good-for-your-stomach probiotic snack.

I altered the recipe by replacing the required xylitol with raw local honey, and almond extract instead of vanilla, also, I recommend using coconut oil for tastier results that keep longer if you plan on saving some for later.
