5-ingredient cookie dough ball recipe
There’s nothing easier than making almond flour edible cookie dough balls. All you need is:
- Peanut butter – fresh, no sugar added, no oil added.
- Maple syrup or liquid sweetener of your choice like agave syrup, brown rice syrup (lower GI), or coconut syrup.
- Almond flour
- Coconut flour – it adds a lovely crumbly cookie dough texture. I recommend adding coconut flour gradually 1 tablespoon at a time, up to 2 tablespoons. I love to add 2 tablespoons, but you may prefer the dough smoother, then only add 1 tablespoon.
- Vegan dark chocolate chips – there are plenty of vegan chocolate chip brands. Check the ingredient list to make sure yours contains only plant-based ingredients or at least 70% dark chocolate. It’s usually dairy-free!
How to store raw snacks?
These raw balls store very well in the pantry in a cookie jar for up to 5 days. However, if it’s hot where you live, I recommend placing the balls in an airtight container in the fridge.
They harden in the fridge, but they will store for up to 2 weeks! You can also freeze raw snacks and defrost 1 hour before or eat them frozen!

Cookie Dough Balls
- In a small mixing bowl, combine creamy peanut butter (make sure it is fresh and oily, or the balls will be very dry!) and maple syrup until it forms a creamy paste.
- Stir in almond flour, coconut flour, and vegan chocolate chips. Use the spoon at first, then use your hands to squeeze, and knead the batter for 30 seconds and form a large dough ball. The dough is very soft, shiny, and dries out as the coconut flour fiber absorbs the liquid.
- Divide the dough into 16 small cookie dough balls. Roll the balls between your hand palms to shape lovely round balls.
- Store at room temperature in a box for up to 3 days, or if it is hot where you live (or want to store these longer), place them in the fridge for up to 2 weeks in an airtight box. The balls get harder and dryer in the fridge but still delicious.
