Pin It!

Oops, wrong Beyonce song.

More single-lady cookin!

We’ve already done Cupcakes for One.

And we’ve done single-serving pancakes, pilafs, and cookies… but what about cookie dough balls?

Cookie Dough Balls for One?

That was a query left on my post for Frozen Hot Chocolate.

Sarah C wrote: Could you maybe do a single-lady version of chocolate chip cookie dough balls? I know you have a raw version, but if you could do a baked version, I would LOVE you forever!” Well, love me forever, Sarah, because here’s a recipe for cookie dough balls that yields only three balls—the perfect size for a single lady (or bachelor boy).


Single-Lady Cookie Dough Balls

Based off the recipe for Single-Lady Cookies

  • 5 level teaspoons flour (18g)
  • scant 1/16th tsp baking soda
  • 1/16th tsp salt (lessen or omit if using margarine)
  • 2 tsp oil or pre-melted margarine*
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • handful chocolate chips (or raisins, nuts, etc)
  • sweetener (My testers liked 1 and 1/2 tsp brown + 1/2 tsp white sugar. More brown sugar makes for a softer cookie.)
  • a little non-dairy milk, if extra liquid is needed (Don’t use water.)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine dry ingredients, then add wet and mix with a fork. It’ll seem a little dry at first, but just keep mixing. Form into three little balls (Do not smush.) Cook for 8-9 minutes. (Take out when still a bit undercooked, so they don’t get hard.)

*See link for more about a sugar-free or fat-free variation.

Just enough for one.

Too bad for you, Sports Store Hottie. 😉

Seriously, though, why bother with boyfriends when you can hang around with chocolate chip cookies? If I could marry a cookie, I would. We’d have cute children, no? Hmmm… maybe there’s a reason one cannot marry chocolate. It’d give new meaning to the term man-eater!

If you could marry a food, what food would you choose?

(Weird question, I know.) I might marry a jar of coconut butter. (Is it legal to do so? Maybe in California?) Of course I would eat my husband… but not before we had many babies, so I could eat them too. And now I’ll stop, because I’m afraid I may have scared you all. Oops.

  1. Being a single lady is the 2nd best thing in the world.

    The best thing in the world is being a single lady with chocolate.

  2. Lisa Fine says:

    Yum! Love these cute little bites.

    I’d have a hard time choosing – a sweet potato sounds good, but so does a jar of cashew butter, or the blueberry bush in my yard.

  3. Goodness I love me some cookie dough balls!

    I’d probably marry a dark chocolate 75% cocoa chocolate bar!

  4. Freya says:

    they look fab!
    I’d marry parsnips – roasted, sweet parsnips…I just love them so!

    1. I like them roasted too… but not raw. No, not raw at all lol!

      1. Freya says:

        Ah see I DO like them raw too! Maybe I’m a bit odd :/ remind me not to invite you to my house for snack time lol 😛

  5. These look so good! I would marry peanut butter, or frozen yogurt!!!

  6. Emily says:

    Awww! Single servings are so adorable!
    If I could marry a food it would probably be a big, dense, fudgy vegan brownie. With lots of frosting and sprinkles, of course.

    1. Can I come to your wedding? (With my coconut children in tow, of course)

  7. Gen says:

    Awesome!!!!!!! These look soooo good! Thanks! 😀

  8. Finally I have been enlightened as to how it makes a difference whether you use white sugar or brown! It always baffled me…

    These look great. Definitely going to add them to my list!

  9. kspar66 says:

    Ah, stoked for these, Katie!
    And I whipped up my first raw choc banana cheesecake this a.m. before I left for school! Used coconut oil, hope it will turn out great (know it will!)

    1. Ooh let me know! I haven’t tried it with coconut oil instead of butter yet, but I want to!

      1. kspar66 says:

        Katie, The coconut oil version was delish! I had it in the fridge, but was worried it wasn’t hardening up so I put it in the freezer for a few hours and that worked! Topped it with cacao nibs and took it as my refreshment for The King’s Speech, totally decadent! thx!

        1. Ok, now I’m going to have to try it with the oil!! I’m so glad you liked it, Katy 🙂 :).

  10. Laura says:

    I’d marry mushroom tempura in a heartbeat.

  11. These look really good!! Definitely one to try, I love how you list servings in jut enough for one person! Also, I just emailed you about adding something to the bake sale, and I’ve made a button for my blog too!

  12. kspar66 says:

    ooh and I would marry a soft, delicous Smucker’s peanut butter sandwich fo’sho

  13. OATS! Cause I love them! Who doesn’t love a cookie dough ball?

    1. Yeah, he might get a lot of marriage proposals…

  14. Oh, and in response to your question, if it were possible to marry foodstuffs, I think I would be guilty of polygamy. My spouses of choice would be as follows:

    (In no particular order)
    1. Chocolate
    2. Bananas
    3. Avocado
    4. Coconut
    5. Pasta

    We would have many delicious offspring…

    1. And I would come for Christmas… you know, to take some of those children off your hands ;).

      1. Well maybe you could bring your children and they could mate with mine so that the deliciousness could be further multiplied…

        1. Brandi says:

          If both your children mated you’d have things like bananas that taste like chocolate, coconut pasta, avocado coconuts butter, plus oh so much more. haha.

  15. skjfskdsdjfskdfkjdf ANOTHER LOVE! ive already got in the bookmarks FOLDER!! anything for one I LOVE
    who would I marry? is this even a question?.. peanut butter. DUH
    and I would have an affair with chocolate

  16. Can you believe I bought a jar of coconut butter over four months ago and have STILL not opened it??? Don’t hate me.

    I’m not scared by you eating your spouse (and children)…it just sort of put me in mind of both praying mantises and the hamster I had as a small child that ate its babies. Which was gross….so maybe you’d be a hamster with a praying mantis head?

    Now I’ve scared myself.

    1. Hamsters are odd!!! My neighbors’ hamster had a baby, but the only other hamsters it ever lived with were its brothers and dad! Yikes lol.

  17. Sandi says:

    Oh Katie you don’t scare us! I love your kookiness 😀
    I can think of so many answers to that one…but I might have to say Ghiradelli 86% dark chocolate because it’s the one thing in the world I don’t think I could possibly live without.
    Coconut butter is heavenly though, especially on pancakes.

  18. Lot-O-Choc says:

    Oh yum these look great..
    oh dear..i think if i was to marry a food id be a food many i would want to marry…
    chocolate, peanut butter, roasted parsnips/sweet potato/butternut squash, ripe melon, crunchy apples…
    too many!

  19. LOL! I would def. marry a jar of PB & Co. Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter. Talk about addicting!

  20. Er, can I marry YOU?! Single-Lady Cookie Dough Balls?! I swear you’ve actually just READ MY MIND and seen my ultimate dream food. I love you!!! 😀

    And you make me lol SO much!! Obviously, chocolate. I have in fact proposed to it many times. Still waiting for a reply though…
