Is there anything better than edible cookie dough?
You know I am all about making desserts with benefits and these cookie dough bars fit the bill. Made with naturally gluten-free almond flour, nut butter which provides plant protein and healthy fats and better for you sweetener, pure maple syrup. These make for a nutritious dessert OR snack!
Now one ingredient you won’t realize they are made with is CBD.
CBD, also known as Cannabidiol, is one of the top questions I am asked by readers and clients. It has gained a lot of media attention and become increasingly popular.
CBD is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis but does not cause a “high” since it is derived from the hemp plant rather than the marijuana plant. While CBD is still an emerging area of research, individuals commonly use it to address anxiety, stress, chronic pain and insomnia. It is legal in all 50 states and can be obtained without a medical cannabis license. Since there may be some side effects to CBD including nausea and fatigue, it is best to talk to your healthcare provider before giving it a try.
In this recipe, I used Caliper CBD, which is a dissolvable powder that comes in precisely and consistently measured single-serve packets so you can expect consistent results with each use. Caliper CBD was designed for anyone who wants to feel and do their best within the routine they already have.
