Raw cookie dough in nearly irresistible.  Many people (mostly teen aged girls) buy pre-made cookie dough just to eat it raw.  But that’s a bad idea. Salmonella we all know about, but recently the CDC has reported that a pathogen in raw flour may make you sick as well.  So don’t eat raw cookie dough, instead eat this egg-less, flour-less delicious snack.

Oatmeal cookie dough bites

4 ounces of softened fat free cream cheese

2 teaspoons of honey

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 cup quick cooking oats

optional mix ins

1/2 cup raisins

1/2 cup shredded coconut, sweetened or unsweetened

2 teaspoons cocoa powder

1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

1/2 dried cranberries

Mix it all together (the more stuff you add in the more cream cheese you have to add to make the mix mixable) roll into balls about 3/4 of an inch in diameter. Roll in cinnamon sugar, shredded coconut or sweetened cocoa powder. Store in the refrigerator for about a week.
