Yes, you read that right. Vegan Cookie Dough Bites. This recipe will have you thinking: “Why haven’t I done this before?” This may not be the typical cookie dough bite, but they sure taste like it. The best part is you can eat as many of them as you want (okay, within reason). These healthy cookie dough bites can be made in 5 minutes. Only 5 minutes for pure satisfaction that can last for a week.. because this recipe yields about 2 dozen (so you’ll be snacking on these for awhile.. or not, we don’t judge). These are no-bake cookie dough bites, so you don’t have to fuss with the oven. It’s a super simple dessert recipe that your whole family will love.
This recipe only requires a few ingredients, a mixing bowl, and a baking sheet. Believe it or not, you probably have the ingredients already at home. This recipe is vegan-friendly, so you know it’s a healthy and guilt-free. “Vegan” means we are cooking without any animal products, like eggs, milk, cheese, and meat. Baking vegan desserts is a lot easier than you think. It only requires you to switch out a few ingredients. In this case, we are substituting honey (no, honey is not technically vegan) for agave nectar. These little peanut butter balls are packed with lots of nutrients and energy. This guilt-free snack/dessert will impress your whole family and all of your vegan friends. So don’t be scared to try different ingredients and methods to create a common dessert. Once you try these out, you’ll be making them every week. And for more on healthy baking, check out our Ultimate Vegan Baking Guide!
What you need
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 2 (ripe) bananas
- 1/3 cup peanut butter (We used HomePlate Peanut Butter)
- 1/4 cup agave nectar
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 cup mini chocolate chips
This recipe is so easy. Get ready.
- Mix all of your ingredients together with a hand mixer or a stand mixer.
- Roll your “cookie dough” into 1 inch balls and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Put your vegan cookie dough balls into the freezer for about 1-2 hours, or until firm.
- Store them in the fridge before serving. (You can also store them in the freezer if you would like them to be firmer when eating them. If you prefer a softer and chewy cookie dough ball I suggest storing them in the fridge).
That’s it! So simple, yet so good.
