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 brands of vegan chocolate chips, check the ingredient list to make sure yours contains only plant-based ingredients or use 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 up to 2 weeks! You can also freeze raw snacks and defrost 1 hour before or eat them frozen!

  • 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 dry out as go as the coconut flour fiber absorb 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 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.

    Hey! I made these last night and it was soo easy! I had almond meal, so I subbed that for the flour component. The texture isn’t gritty! I also roughly chopped my dark chocolate chips. Rolled into small balls and threw them in the freezer for a handy, sweet snack. Thanks a bunch for this!!

    I absolutely adore cookie dough, but it is probably my ultimate weakness as I cannot even resist eating the raw stuff. I am stoked to have stumbled across this recipe and can’t wait to curb my sweet tooth with this healthy alternative!

    The cookie dough balls were the first recipe that I tried from Carine’s blog. I found it while looking for healthy recipes on Instagram. I loved the fact that the balls were vegan and with no added sugars.
    I’m vegetarian and I also track my macros and try not to eat (or cook) anything with added sugars. I have found other dessert recipes but usually a lot has to be adjusted to achieve great flavour, but not with Carine’s recipes. They are perfect!
    The balls were great and we liked them so much that after that I pretty much started to cook at least 2 of Carine’s recipes a week!!!
    I can’t recommend her blog more than with my obsession for everything that she shares. I appreciate her attention to details, suggestions, variations, explanations, clear and straightforward content.

      I can’t believe you are making 2 of my recipe a week! this makes me so happy to have you here with me. Take care, XOXO Carine

    I made these and they are delisious! I actually used pb2 powder and it doesn’t really make a cream just a weird liquid when you mix it with the maple syrup, once you add the flours it gets the perfect texture. I definetly recommend this recipe!!
