Have you ever had Hail Merry Merry Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites?

Both Big Tex and SiSi have told me they could EASILY be vegans if we had an unlimited supply of Hail Merry treats chillin’ out in our fridge for them to snack on every day.

As if.

Truth be told, I love ’em too, but they’re on my “every now and then” food budget. Not my daily food budget, so I thought it would be fun to experiment with making my own version.

Trust me. These do not disappoint.

I even priced them out for you, and for me too since I just sent in my taxes yesterday.

Sigh…

By my calculations, using almond flour, oil {coconut}, maple syrup, salt, and chocolate chips from Thrive Market, plus protein powder, these bad boys are anywhere between $ 0.15 to 0.25 less per serving.

On the surface, that doesn’t seem like much, but imagine if you ate one Chocolate Chip No Bake Energy Bite every day for a year, you would save up to $92.00.

Not bad.

And, not to mention my Chocolate Chip No Bake Energy Bites have twice as much protein, and almost half the amount of sugar as my competitor.

Just sayin.’

In the end though, I know I will still partake in Hail Merry goodies from time to time {Have you tried their Miracle Tarts yet? Swoon!!!}, but it’s nice to know I can whip up a batch of something equally delicious in 5 minutes flat, AND save a little dough. No pun intended 🙂

  1. You are a genius! Theses are amazing. I made mine with 1.5 tablespoons of water instead of oil and they still turned out delicious. Thank you so much for sharing this ???

  2. I looked at these last night on the couch and was drooling— my goodness, this is awesome! I haven’t tried those other bites, but you know me, I’m all about a budget friendly choice! Look great EA!

    1. You’re so sweet Liz!! I’m trying to imagine you drooling on the couch-LOL 🙂 I know you love a good bargain too-I think I need to get some good budgeting tips from you!!

  3. These sound like the perfect treat! Coincidently I was recipe testing last night to get less sugar and more protein/fiber in a batch of chocolate chip cookies. Will definitely try your recipe. : )

    1. Thanks so much Lauren! At first my son said they need more sweetener, but then proceeded to eat a whole bunch of them over the past couple of days, so I think he likes them as is 🙂 Cheers!

    1. Hi Denise! Yes!!! I hope they give you an extra oomph of energy on your hike 🙂 It’s a beautiful day here in San Diego-wish I was hiking instead of sitting at my desk. Enjoy!!
