do the dough.

i had a little bit of free time today and decided to create 2 different "cookie dough" recipes i had found on pinterest... which dough would you do?

1. "raw" cookie dough balls (originally on this blog.)
cashews + oats + agave/maple syrup + vanilla + chocolate chips
*i used dark chocolate chips & liquid stevia vanilla 

these are actually pretty tasty (for being pretty healthy) but definitely have a "nutty" taste because of the cashews. so more along the lines of a peanut-butter-chocolate-chip cookie. i honestly think they look more appetizing than they actually are, but a good alternative if you're staying away from processed sugar, gluten, dairy, etc.

2. eggless cookie dough (originally on this blog.)  
brown sugar + butter + milk + vanilla + flour + chocolate chips
*i used dark chocolate chips, liquid stevia vanilla, almond milk, whole wheat pastry flour, & earth balance butter

the original blogger was craving cookie dough while she was pregnant, so this made sense (no raw eggs) -- but i am a big fan of this when you're craving it any time! sure, butter & sugar aren't the best thing for you to eat every day, but this is way better than the store bought processed stuff, and you can modify your ingredients as you wish! freeze it up and just eat little bits at a time when you're craving some cookie dough! (warning: self control required!)

I'll taste one of each, please :) Seriously though, I prefer #1 because then I can eat more of them :)

Look delicious, I'm vegan so I like the idea of egglessness. You can also replace the butter with margerine or oil.
