cookie dough bites

Everyone knows that cookie dough is delicious and sweet. It’s like eating a cookie but the texture is different and the flavor is a little bit… special. This cookie dough bites are totally safe for your health and you can eat them with a spoon or dip with any snacks you like. This recipe is easy to make and it has only simple ingredients.

This recipe doesn’t make many bites. It’s perfect for people who enjoy eating cookie dough but think they can’t stop or be considered childish for eating it. You can eat the whole batch and leave nothing behind. No sharing with others. If you want to make more bites, just multiply the ingredients.

Just think about many ways you can eat this dough. It can be brownies or cupcakes, on top of ice cream or as a frosting. They are delicious by themselves and doesn’t need any side dish. There is no reason not to give a try to this recipe. I’m sure it will be your next favorite and you will keep the dough in your freezer all the time.

When you have the dough ready and waiting for you, you’re very close to making a dessert for a special occasion. It’s not a new idea and I’m not the first one who found out about it, but I thought I should share it with you. I’m obsessed with this recipe! You can use this as an idea for your experiments. To make the right texture without eggs you need to prepare traditional dough and then add milk (any type of it you like). This will keep the ingredients together and give the dough the right texture.

The flour is safe to eat but you can skip it and use oat flour. Then you just need to put everything together and add salt and vanilla. That’s it! We are not baking anything so there is no baking powder or baking soda required. Once everything is in one bowl, you should add chocolate chips and serve the dough with crackers, grahams or any snack you love. Or just enjoy them as is.

I have an idea for you: cooking with children! I know that the idea can be terrifying because you think that flout will be all over your kitchen or they will eat chocolate chips instead of adding them to the bowl, but it’s worth trying. This is a great opportunity for the whole family to experiment and create something new. The cooking technique couldn’t be any easier: just give your children the bowl and spoon and let them mix everything together.

You can add maple syrup if you want your bites to be a sugar bomb. Honey is also a good idea, but I like the syrup more. The bites are delicious without any syrup or sauce, so feel free to eat them just like that. They are just irresistible. If you are the kind of person who is always sticking the fingers in the dough, you will love this recipe. This is a perfect quick dessert or a late night snack that comes together in 5 minutes.

I want to be honest with you. No-bake recipes can taste better than their baked counterparts. The bites are delish, fast and egg-free. This is the perfect dessert that taste so good. And you don’t have to worry about eating store-bought cookies. No oven required! And you have tons of chocolate chips inside, I couldn’t ask for more.

  • 130 g cashews
  • 60 g gluten-free oats
  • 6 g salt
  • 8 g cinnamon
  • 60 ml maple syrup
  • 16 ml vanilla extract
  • 60 g vegan chocolate chips you can substitute them for cacao nibs


  1. Take a container, line it with parchment paper and place on a counter. Combine cinnamon, oats, cashews and salt in a food processor. Mix until the dough isn't wet and is easy to work with. Don't over-press them or you will get butter instead of dough.

  2. Add vanilla extract and maple syrup to the mixture. Mix everything again until you don't see wet ingredients anymore.

  3. Remove the dough from the processor, place it in a bowl. You can get extra bites if you scrape the sides of the processor. Fold the chips so they are incorporated into the mixture. Make sure every part of the dough has chips.

  4. Take spoons or a cookie baller and portion out the equal portions of the dough, you should get 12 bites. Roll every portion into a sphere. Place the bites into the container. You can serve them immediately or freeze for later. They can stay in the freezer for 2 weeks.

Recipe Notes

If you want, you can easily make this recipe gluten free. All you need to do is to use gluten free flour that you can eat raw. Oat flour is the most popular, I think. I've seen people who use coconut flour, so you can also try that. However, I haven't used it myself so I can't guarantee the same result.

If you're not dairy free, just follow the recipe and you will get the perfect bites. They taste wonderful and come together quickly. It's hard to not to eat them all at once. I like to keep some of these frozen for those times when I don't feel like cooking.
