Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites (Low Carb)

Another crazy recipe idea that I had recently was for gluten free, low carb cookie dough that I can enjoy while slimming down.  This is nutritious and very rich.

This is admittedly not a photo of mine, but this is the closest image on the web to what mine look like.  I actually like the way mine look better than this though.  :)

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites 

(Low Carb and NO Bake!)

6 Brazil Nuts (ground)
1/8th cup Roasted Almonds (unsalted)
4 Walnut Halves (ground)
1 Tbsp Coconut Flour
2 tsp unsalted butter
1 Tbsp ground flax seed
1 Tbsp heavy whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
15g (or 32 chips) Semi Sweet Choc. Chips
1/8 c. hot water
Stevia to sweeten (everyone's Stevia measures differently so just make it to your taste).
pinch of sea salt
(I added a pinch of espresso powder too)

Grind nuts and flax seed till smooth.  Add Coconut flour, butter, vanilla extract, stevia, and salt then stir.  Add whipping cream and hot water and stir till stiff dough forms.  Add chocolate chips.  Form into balls and store in the fridge until you want to eat them.  No need to bake these.  They're perfect raw and have such a rich deep flavor to them.  I honestly have no idea what would happen if you DID try to bake these...  Probably would crumble apart from the lack of sugar (glue).  3 servings.

The breakdown per serving:
183 calories, 8 carbs, 3 fiber, 3 protein, 14 fat, 4 sugar
(Most of this fat is from nuts and flax seeds).
