*makes 3 servings

1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tbsp Almond Milk
1/4 cup mini Dark Chocolate Chips
*1 tbsp Maple Syrup or Honey [optional]
1] Combine all ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, in a medium sized bowl + stir. [pro tip: if your nut butter has a thick consistency, microwaving it for 30 sec will help thin it out + make mixing easier]
2] Once the wet + dry ingredients are combined, add in your toppings + stir until fully combined.
3] Place the cookie dough in the fridge or freezer to allow it to chill + firm. Once the dough is more firm — call over your CHAARG girls + enjoy by the spoonful! ; )
