Edible Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Tips
These peanut butter energy balls come together quickly in a food processor or high-powered blender. I like to leave little bits of each ingredient in the final product, but you can process them to a smoother consistency if you prefer a truer cookie dough texture.
If the dough doesn’t come together easily, add water one teaspoon at a time and process until you get the right texture. It should bind together easily without being wet.
Store these treats in the refrigerator for several days, or freeze for later.
