Cookie Dough Bites: With Dianapantz

hey everybody!
my name is dianapantz and i blog over here. i write about being vegan in the midwest, riding my bicycle and sharing my self-employment journey. i just recently left my part-time job to focus on dianapantz full-time. i also run this etsy shop where i sell hand-knit winter, farmers market totes and babypantz [legwarmers for small humans!]

today i wanted to share with you a fun little vegan recipe i found.
not vegan? no problem. [i bet you already have all the ingredients at home ;)]

cookie dough bites!
original recipe found here. modifications made by me.

how long? 
hands-on : 20 minutes // time in fridge : 1 hour

how much?
about 2 dozen

what you need : 
*1 cup veg butter [i use earth balance] OR you can use 3/4 cup butter + 1/4 cup applesauce
*1 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
*1 teaspoon vanilla extract
*2 cups whole wheat flour
*6 ounces chocolate chips [i used dark chocolate AND mint dark chocolate chips]

how to do it : 
1) cream together butter and sugar
2) add remaining ingredients and mix well [i used my hands!]
3) roll into small balls [about 1 inch]
4) refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes. you can dip in melted chocolate OR leave them as is.
5) store covered in the fridge
*these would also be great with crushed nuts, dried fruit, ect.
