Raw Macadamia Cookie Dough Bites

I’m always up for anything with macadamia nuts in it! This recipe is a twist on cookie dough, but a healthy twist that is.  I love the consistency of cookie dough and these have that thick chewy texture that I like. If you just want a little bit of sweetness I would only add 1/4 cup of maple syrup or even omit the syrup all together. When it comes to the toppings my favorite was definitely the cocoa powder. I could very possibly eat the whole batch in one sitting.
