Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bites (no baking required!)

These delicious chocolate peanut butter cookie dough bites take a few minutes to whip up, don’t need to be baked, and don’t involve eating raw flour.

No gluten, no dairy, just amazing flavor and decadent enjoyment.

It’s a sweet plant-based treat that’s also good brain fuel for kiddos – I made them up during those pandemic home learning days when the schools were closed.


  • 2 Tbsp peanut butter or almond butter
  • 2 Tsbp softened coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vamilla
  • 1 1/2 cups oats, blended into a powder
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup dairy-free chocolate chips


In a medium bowl, mix the peanut butter, coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla until smooth and well combined.

In your blender, make sure that the oats are blended up into a flour-like powder.

Add the oats, almond flour, salt, and chocolate chips to the wet ingredients. Stir it up well to make a thick dough with chocolate chips evenly distributed and no pockets of oat or almond flour.

Use your hands to form the dough into about 18 cookie dough balls, if you can keep yourself from snacking on the dough as you roll the balls!

Eat them as is or chill them in the fridge or freezer for a refreshing treat.


Here is a quote to honor the simplicity of this recipe:

I do believe in simplicity. It is astonishing as well as sad, how many trivial affairs even the wisest thinks he must attend to in a day… When the mathematician would solve a difficult problem, she first frees the equation of all incumbrances, and reduces it to its simplest terms. To simplify the problem of life, distinguish the necessary and the real. Probe the earth to see where your main roots run.” – Henry David Thoreau

May we all find ways to simplify today as a new chapter of life begins.

    Facebook comment from Sylvia: Could I use something other than oats – I still react to the other gluten that is in oats.

      @Sylvia Thank you for the great question! I use gluten-free oats, but if you can’t tolerate those, you could try making it with all almond flour instead of almond flour + oat flour. It should make a richer and slightly moister ball. I will also experiment with that, thanks for the suggestion! 🥰🙏
