Fruit, Veggie and Cookie Dough Balls

Written by Eydie Desser

Inspiration can come in many different ways. In this particular case, it was all about ease, and of course, taste. I wanted to create something simple, yet nutritious and delicious! Each “dough ball” has a unique quality to nourish the body, in different ways. For example, carrots are high in Vitamin C, which helps in the formation of collagen and absorption of iron. Blueberries are considered to be “the king of antioxidants”. They can protect against premature aging AND have the ability to reduce blood pressure. Cookie dough is…cookie dough.  Enough said!
