What peanut butter dreams are made of...
Look you could tell me peanut butter is bad for you all day long. My ears are unavailable for this kinda talk. I have been eating peanut butter since I was a wee young girl by the spoonful. It. is. my. favorite.
I'll never quit you, peanut butter.
Not never, not know how.
Ok- sorry about that. Just wanted to clarify my love for peanut butter. If you for some reason do not feel this special way about peanut butter- by all means substitute almond butter in this recipe. Or if your nut free, sunflower seed butter could possibly work too.
Try it, ya never know!
I almost gave up on this recipe- half way through cause it just was not turning out right. But I pushed through & voila. I'm so glad I didn't. Cause this genuinely might be the best dessert I've ever made. Seriously. I had to force myself to create something new after this cause I would've made it again- and again, and again. And probably again.
Well lets be real- I will be making this a lot in the future.

No Bake- Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls
Recipe by: The Daily Kale
It was one random night in December... we were out of chocolate. I usually always have dark chocolate bars in the house (Chocolove 77 percent is my favorite). But, we were out. Yep. So it was either- have no chocolate. OR DO SOMETHING.
...And I did something. And since then- things have never been the same. I now do not rely on having chocolate bars in the house- when it's this easy & this good to make your own.
3 ingredients for the base of this recipe:
Agave or sweetener of choice
*Obviously I add the other fun stuff, nuts & seeds, etc- but the base of this is the most important part- because, duh. Chocolate.
Do you have those items? If you do, get ready to go make this!

Why hello there!
I am so excited to share with you maybe my favorite cookie recipe yet. I really don't make much cookies. But when I do, I like them to be sort of fluffy and always soft & chewy. I'm not a hard, crunchy cookie type person. So if thats what your looking for, this will not be for you. Just a heads up. ;)
So back to my magical cookies. There once was a place in L.A. that I actually worked at, and lived very close to... Called Mani's Bakery. It probably was the first place I ever learned about anything to do with healthy food. Cause believe me, I had no idea. Your girl used to eat at In n Out and other fast food spots more than once a day. And I could take down a 2 liter of Mountain dew with no help needed. Pretty bad. Which is why it's strange, but good that I am where I am now. A person who can't even handle a normal amount of sugar? Craziness right ? I really can't. My heart starts beating so fast. Now back to Mani's. This place was so popular. Let me tell you. I waited on so many famous people. SO MANY. It was the perfect place! It had a whole section on the menu that was vegan. And that could be made vegetarian. And another half that was not vegan. ALL of it was healthy. They even had separate kitchens in the back for the veg. part and non veg. part. So awesome. But what probably was the coolest was that vegans & non vegans a like could come to a place & enjoy their own food together and all of it was healthy!
The other awesome part was their bakery section. After all it was called Mani's Bakery.
They had these beautiful cookies, muffins, pies, cakes and more. So good. They were all not sweetened with sugar too. Instead they used fruit juice. So awesome. Very sad this place isn't there anymore. It's still in my dreams <3 And I'll continue to talk about how awesome it was and hopefully someday it'll reappear :)
Ok. So thanks to Mani's. I got inspired yesterday to make a cookie without sugar, butter & eggs. I think thats why I don't bake that much. It seems impossible sometimes to avoid those things. Well what will I replace it with, etc? I have the answers here for you my people! Ok.
1 cup Sugar = 1 cup mashed bananas
1 cup butter or oil = 1 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1 egg = 1 flax or chia egg (1 tbsp. flax or chia seeds mixed with 3 tbsp water)
Kapeesh? THAT'S IT. Now the world is yours! Go ahead and make some stuff!
These cookies I made tasted like a soft fluffy cookie/muffin. So good. Please try it!
THE DAILY KALE'S CHOCOLATE DIPPED PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES
DIRECTIONS : chocolate sauce
So I have this rule.
Anything I make in my kitchen that is a dessert.... Has to be healthy. And I don't mean just saying like, Ohh I didn't use refined sugar so it's okay. Ahem, no. I have some food rules. That is for sure. As in... I don't ever have anything but whole wheat flour products. Never will I eat white rice, or white pasta, etc. I'm a stickler. And there is more to it also than just being 'whole wheat'. MEH, that is a whole other post. Haha. Bottom line read your ingredients before you buy. And I have completely gone off on a tangent haven't I ! Geez. OK. Back to what I was saying about my desserts are super healthy. Almost to the point where I will jeopardize the consistency of what that specific dessert is supposed to be like. But hey- it still tastes great and has way less bad stuff! Like these bad boy muffins.
I wanted muffins badly yesterday morning. But no, I'm not gonna put a huge amount of sugar and maple syrup or whatever. I think thats crazy and unnecessary. So I don't do it! And by the way- the boyfriend loved them. SO thats alright, alright, alright then!
