These are NOT cake pops…

Pin It!

Cake pops are so yesterday. What’s today?

Cookie Ball Pops!

People keep telling me I need to make those trendy cake pops. But as fun as it is to follow a trend, you know what’s even more fun? Starting your own trend! And so today… Let’s start a new trend. I’m predicting it’s going to be huge.

After all, it’s cookie dough.

Joking aside, these things are awesome-delicious, super-fun, and mega-adorable. You should all run out right now to make them!

What are you still doing here?

Really, go!

Oh right, you need a recipe first.


Cookie Ball Pops

(Can be gluten-free!)

  • 1/3 c + 1/4 c flour (I adore these with oat flour! You can use white, or even spelt flour.)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda (not baking powder)
  • up to 1/3 c chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar (do not omit or sub with white) (20g)
  • 1 tbsp plus 2 tsp white sugar (I omit, but I have no sweet tooth) (21g)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • optional: 1 tbsp vegan butter (12g) (You can omit, for fat-free balls)
  • 2 tbsp plus 2 tsp milk of choice, or more if needed (40g)

Mix your dry ingredients, then add in wet. Roll into balls, insert lollipop sticks (or any long object, really), and freeze. Or, feel free to not add sticks, and simply eat these as cookie balls.

(Each ball, without butter, will have 23 calories.)


Kinda reminds me of a flag.

Repeat after me: I pledge allegiance to the cookie dough


The cookie-dough exclamation point !!! !!! !!! !!!

  1. ‘Pops’ are EVERYWHERE! I love this trend and I think it’s super cute :) Such a non-messy way of eating something.

  2. Lisa says:

    Oh my gosh, YES! I am so going to spread this trend. How? By eating extreme amounts of cookie ball pops, of course ;).
    You’re so creative. I love it!

  3. Well they sure are cute!!!

    The exclamation point is my favorite!

  4. Ahh these look great. They can definitely help put a cookie dough craving at ease!

  5. Emily K says:

    Count me in! Goodbye cake pops, hello cookie dough. I’ve always liked cookie dough more than cake anyway!

  6. KATIE YOU ARE A GENIUS!!! Ohmygosh I’d SO take cookie dough pops over cake ones ANYDAY!! As soon as I am better I am MAKING THESE!! 😀

  7. Jenny says:

    What a fun recipe! I’ve actually never been a fan of cake balls… Chocolate chip cookie though? Count me in!

    (PS Your photography skills have improved so much… It’s amazing! Pro food photographer much, Katie? ;))

    1. You made my day, miss Jenny! But I have a looooooot to learn!

  8. Jessica says:

    No kidding, I am making these today!

  9. VeggieGirl says:

    Those are WAY better than cake pops!

  10. Valerie says:

    They are so cute! And I’m so excited to hear you’re being true to your name and covering them in chocolate! :)

  11. I LOVE THIS NEW POP TREND!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. VEGirl says:

    It’s a new POP culture! Get it? hehe

  13. Kailey @GardenGirl says:

    I pledge allegiance to the cookie dough…
    Oh yes I do. Every single day! :) I think I’ll have to pledge allegiance to these too. Where do you buy the sticks?

    1. I found them at Michaels in the cake-decorating section. But really, ANY stick would work… even a popsicle stick or a straw!

  14. Who doesn’t love fun ways to eat cookie dough?! These are too cute for words!

  15. jenna says:

    Stellar photos, Katie.

  16. Kate says:

    These are so cute! I never understood the appeal of cake pops…but cookie pops? Totally genius!

    1. FreshFoodFitness says:

      Me neither! I mean, who would want just a bite of cake? But cookie dough balls are way more exciting. I’m on board for this trend for sure. And wouldn’t it be cool if they did make it all the way to Oprah? Or if Blake Lively invited you over to her house to make them like she did for Bakerella and the cake pops?

      1. Oh wow, I just googled to find out about the Bakerella story you mentioned. That would pretty much be a dream. I can’t even imagine how she must have felt when Blake Lively contacted her!

  17. Nothing says Happy Monday like Cookie Ball Pops! I am soooooo over cake pops. I will join you in starting this trend – great thinking!

  18. karla says:

    these would be totally cute dipped in a bit of melted dark chocolate. also, i definitely laughed at fat free balls. I guess I’m immature :-p

    1. I must be too… I cringed when I wrote it! 😉

  19. A.Cook says:

    The cookie dough exclamation point! Haha I love it!

  20. Ohmahdear. So I’ve been looking for the perfect cookie to make for the new boy to show him that I can still be a baller cook and be healthy at the same time…and I think I just settled on this!

    1. Ooo I hope he likes them!!

  21. Leslie says:

    Sooooooooo cute!!! I’m going to put ribbons on them and make cookie ball pop bouquets. Such a cute rpesent idea!

  22. Leslie says:


  23. Gen says:

    Awww gotta love cute, delicious food!!!!! 😀

  24. Anonymous says:

    Sorry to let you down, but there are already plenty of recipes for cookie dough pops around the blogsphere!

    Not to say they don’t look great though, can’t go wrong with cookie dough!

    1. Really? Can you give me a link? I made sure to do a google search before writing this post, and I came up with only one entry–for Kraft s’more cookie pops.
      I’ll agree that there are a lot of cookie balls around the blogworld (as well as plain cookie pops), but I have not seen cookie ball pops yet.

      1. Veggie Cate says:

        I haven’t seen cookie ball pops before. I think you’re the first!
        I agree with you, though, that cookie balls are all over the blogworld! Crazy!

      2. Amanda says:

        I love them! And I just saw them on Allie’s blog – last week. I even made a few this weekend to settle my cookie dough craving. I added some rice cereal to mine for a little crunch. Here’s Allie’s direct link:

        1. Wow, ok I feel embarrassed… Not that I could’ve known I was copying, because it’s STILL not showing up when I google search. This is all I get:,or.r_gc.r_pw.&fp=9c17e529bf934417

          Well, I guess I did the first health-i-fied and vegan version, anyway! And hey, the more cookie pops the better! I said “WE should start a new trend” not ME. So it looks like we are!

          1. Kate says:

            Woah girl, there’s no need to feel embarrassed! We don’t expect you to keep up with every single blog post that every single person has every written! And actually, the people who usually make something trendy aren’t even the ones who first thought up the idea!

            Angela certainly wasn’t the first person to blog about green smoothies. And Gena DEFINITELY wasn’t the first one to put bananas in the food processor and call it ice cream. They just found a new and fun way to show it off.

            So I say, you keep showing off those CUTE cookie ball pops. Make them a trend! Because I for one, want to follow this trend no matter who starts it ;).

          2. Kate says:

            After reading the link I wanted to add one more thing. Sorry to keep rambling! So the other blogger calls hers Cookie Dough Pops, not Cookie Ball Pops.

            So I think you are safe to claim the Cookie Ball Pop trend for your own! :)

            And then you can take it to new levels. Don’t just stop with chocolate chip cookies. You can make up pb cookies, etc. I’m excited to see what you do with this trend. You always amaze me with your creative spins on things. I still have to make the cookie dough pancakes!

      3. Katelyn says:

        Allie at made them a week ago…

        1. Wow, ok I feel embarrassed… Not that I could’ve known I was copying, because it’s STILL not showing up when I google search. This is all I get:,or.r_gc.r_pw.&fp=9c17e529bf934417

          Well, I guess I did the first health-i-fied and vegan version, anyway! And hey, the more cookie pops the better! I said “WE should start a new trend” not ME. So it looks like we are ;).

          1. Katelyn says:

            Don’t be embarrassed, just give her blog a little love tomorrow 😉

          2. Kate says:

            Just my two cents, but if you didn’t use a particular blogger’s post as inspiration, I don’t know why you should be expected to give it a shout out. That would be like me feeling like I have to give a shout out to Angela every time I have a spinach smoothie. I love Angela, but she isn’t the reason I started drinking spinach smoothies, and so it’d be false advertising if I told people in the blogworld that she was.

            You came up with this idea of cookie ball pops all on your own, and this other girl isn’t even calling her pops “cookie ball pops” and they are also, from what I can see, not anything like yours in terms of the recipe. So it would be really silly if you feel like you need to give some stranger a shout out just because she coincidentally happened to have the same idea as you to put a cookie dough ball on a stick. As I said before, this is obviously your own idea and it’s the idea, not the actual recipe, that makes it yours (just like Angela’s green monsters, which is a much cuter way to market it than my calling it “green smoothies”). I for one am going to be making them and helping you with this “new trend” that is so much more exciting than cake pops.

            On a totally unrelated note, I made your fudge babies last night for the millionth time, and even my junk food hating friend had to admit that they were delicious.

            Is it just me, or do my comments on your blog keep getting longer and longer?

          3. LOL Kate, I love long comments! Don’t ever stop :).
            And now that you mentioned other flavors, I am thinking that a snickerdoodle cookie ball pop MUST be made!

  25. Ragnhild says:

    Katie!!! This looks just too good! I need to make them really soon!

  26. I tried the cake pops from Starbucks, and I didn’t really like them! They weren’t flavourful & just tasted….average. My palate isn’t set up for the generic unhealthy treats though, so I think these look DELICIOUS!!! I am going to make these. These CCK cake pops makes me dream of a cake pop bouquet of flowers! Cookie dough, birthday cake, dark chocolate covered cake pop, chocolate mint, chocolate mocha… my mouth is watering like Homer Simpson right now haha.

    1. I saw those things… they were so small! They looked sad amidst the other yummy treats!

  27. These look great! Am I the only immature person that laughed when you said ‘insert any long object?’ Hahaha!

    1. Oh. my. word. How on earth did I miss that when I wrote it? LOL!

    2. Katy says:

      Um… I laughed at “fat-free balls”. So no, you’re not the only one!

  28. Lisa says:

    those are so cute! I saw cake pops in Starbucks the other day, which reminds me of these! :)

  29. Stephanie says:

    These look crazy-good.. wow! They would probably make the perfect birthday gift :)

  30. You’re a dessert genius!

  31. Cat says:

    LOOOOOVE this idea! And I love all the vibrant blue photos too. Now I wanna cookie ball pop!

  32. Emily says:

    Omg YUM! Anything cookie dough is awesome in my book. And it doesn’t hurt that they’re super cute!

  33. Veggie Cate says:

    I love this new trend! So much better than that uggs and skirts trend ;). You seem to start a LOT of foodie trends, Katie. Pizzerts, fudge babies, coconut butter! You certainly got ME hooked on all these things!

  34. These are so adorable! I can’t wait to be home for the summer with a kitchen to use again so I can make up a batch of these babies! My best friend just recently started eating gluten-free, too, so I’ll have to give her some for fun.

    What is the best way to store these?

    1. Freezer… or better yet, your mouth 😉

      1. Oh snap. I’m sure these little buddies will be lucky to make it across the kitchen!

  35. things getting chocolate covered? sounds dirty

  36. Katelyn says:

    Allie at made cookie pops about a week ago… she covered hers in chocolate too, I bet you’d love them!!!!

  37. Delish! Cookie dough in any form works for me.

  38. Hela says:

    hahaha, love the flag 😀
    and you know what, I made the chocolate chip pancakes today, though I didn´t add any chocolate chips 😉 Instead, I added mashed banana and blueberries to the first batch, and… wait for it… they tasted awesome… LIME JUICE and POPPY SEEDS to the second batch!! Yes, you heard me!!! Utterly delicious!!!

  39. Jialin says:

    I love your raw cake pops idea! Totally trying for my best friend’s birthday.

    1. Sarah C. says:

      This is genius! I want them for my birthday instead of cake! And forget cake POPS. Cookie pops are way more fun!

  40. Sarah C. says:

    Oh sorry haha. I didn’t mean for that to be a reply to someone else’s comment.

  41. Marina says:

    I have cookie dough in my mind lately a lot, and these seem perfect for feeding that craving :)

  42. I need to make these ASAP. Maybe dip them in chocolate?! :)

  43. bitt of raw says:

    Cute! I think food on a stick is beginning to be a big trend. I made some all raw vegan cake pops in a challenge. It felt fun eating them on a stick. I will be doing more things like that I think.

  44. These look great–such a fun idea! :-)

  45. I had seen Allie’s cookie pops a few days ago and have seen similar things on other blogs, not “healthy living blogs” per se but more baking blogs, and non-foodbuzz sponsored blogs, just this whole other realm of blogs i didnt know about until about 6 mos ago…have seen lots of cookie/cake pops.

    But no one has time to read everyone’s blog! Especially when you’re busy getting your images uploaded on FG. Saw your pancakes w/ the syrup drizzle on there when I got an email from them about a submission approval.

    So happy that’s all better now for you :)

  46. ellalinea says:


  47. These glisten! I love bite sized treats. Yum;)

  48. Cookie dough balls on a stick? Love it 😀

  49. eeeek! i have EVERYTHING, EXCEPT chocolate chips! whyyyyy! i want to make these RIGHT NOW!

    1. Hmmm… well, you could always add in raisins instead! Or just have oatmeal cookie balls!

  50. Awesome Katie! Another 10 out of 10 recipe!!!

  51. Mary says:

    At the risk of being the 70th person to tell you this, I LOVE this idea! Putting all the ingredients on my grocery list right now!!! :)
    Count me in for this trend!

  52. katie k says:

    cuteeee! I’m hoping that your alluding to dipping THESE in chocolate for tomorrow’s post!

  53. Yes! I believe these will make it BIG real soon :)

  54. LOVE this new trend!!! Do you think these would be ok for breakfast? Of course they would 😉 I mean, they’re healthy, so why not? 😀

    Love you Katie!!! 😀


    1. I don’t think I’m a very good person to ask, considering I think chocolate fudge cake is a perfectly-acceptable breakfast food ;).

  55. I WANT THIS FOR BREAKFAST!!!! Or at least on top of my breakfast. 😉

    1. Maybe I will bring you some… and then I can have a meet up with you and Kelsey!

      1. YAH!!!! :) That would be SO much fun!!! Meeting you would absolutely be the best day EVER!

  56. Albizia says:

    You were right – I need my hands only to make these and very strong will to let them live until I share them with somebody else :) I can probably make them for my colleagues in the university. I am sure they love your creation.

  57. Livvy says:

    OMG YES! YES! YES! I’m already loving your new trend and you’re sooo right; it will become HUGE! I’m going to try these with both oat + spelt flour-I can’t decide because it all sounds too amazing!

    1. Oooh if you have oat flour, try that first! I am in love with it… but is that surprising? I mean, it’s OATS! 😉

  58. Flo says:

    Wow, Just like starbucks! but vegan :)

  59. Um these look amazing. I might need to go out and buy brown sugar just to make them!! YUM.

  60. Stupid Question says:

    Is the baking soda necessary? Thanks!

    1. Oh my gosh, not a stupid question at all!
      No, it’s not necessary as far as making the balls hold up. I just really think it adds something special to the flavor.

  61. Aja says:

    I need to make these. I think I have to get up early tomorrow before school to make them. They look amazing. I absolutely love your Not Guilty cookies, and so does my boyfriend which is amazing because I didn’t think he’d like anything that wasn’t full of fat and sugar. Seriously, they’re better than a full fat, full sugar chocolate chip cookie. You’re a genius!

    1. Awww lol I cannot tell you how happy that made me. I even shared your sweet comment with my sister and mom :).

  62. Parita says:

    There is nothing left to say but YUM! And Katie, I am obsessed with your cookie dough boatmeal! I have no self-control when I make it!

    1. Aw hehe I NEVER have self-control when it comes to chocolate… even if I’m not hungry!

  63. Tara says:

    I was just recently thinking how someone needs to make a healthy cake pop (haha I accidently wrote poop.. I’m so immature), but cookie pops are even more fun! Plus this can be a single lady recipe or shared with friends! I want to make a chocolate cookie or oatmeal cookie one. Or a sugar cookie one. The possiblities are endless!

    1. I think snickerdoodle is next on my list to try!
      And lol your immaturity made me laugh ;).

  64. Kristie says:

    HECK YES these look just wonderful. Cake pops are adorable but cookie ball pops got a whole new thang goin on. Especially since cookie dough is just da bomb. Obviously. Yet another winner recipe into my ‘To Make’ folder… it’s getting quite ‘beefy’!

    1. hahaha beefy, full of veg-friendly recipes… tofu-y? :)

  65. Jonna says:

    So, is it raw spelt flour? Raw oatflour? with baking soda? Do you bake them in the oven? Can you eat unbaked-baking soda?

    Im just curious :)) They looks devilishly delicious!

    great blog :)

    1. Nope, no baking needed! And yeah, you can eat the baking soda raw. It’s perfectly safe. In fact, a good remedy for an upset tummy is to mix baking soda with water :).

  66. Amie Sue says:

    These are very cute. Last week I made some out of my “raw” peanut butter cookie batter and then dipped them in raw chocolate. Heaven!! They are sure fun to make aren’t they?
    Blessings, amie sue

    1. Definitely fun! But when is chocolate not fun, right? 😉

  67. alyssa says:

    katie what do you use to analyze your nutritional information??

    1. I don’t use any software; I add up all the ingredients, then divide by the # of servings. I’m good at math lol (I’m a proud nerd!). If you ever need an explanation as to how I arrived at a certain count, just ask.

      1. Julia Smith says:

        How many cookie dough balls is the information for? :)


    Sorry for spamming…

    1. Spamming? Haha no you are adorable!! :)

  69. Jane says:

    Hi Katie,

    I noticed that all your receipes include nondairy milk and was wondering if your recipes will work the same with normal skim milk? I wasn’t sure if that was just a vegan recipe, or if therer is a significant difference in texture or they way they will turn out!

    Please let me know!

    Thank you! Love your blog! Makes me want a cookie so bad! :)

    1. Hey Jane!
      Haha yes, I just write “nondairy” milk because I’m a vegan. Skim milk should work fine in all recipes calling for non-dairy (unless it specifically states “coconut milk”).
      Well, actually I don’t know about the recipes with agar, because I don’t know how the skim milk would react with the agar. But all the other recipes should be fine with skim milk!

      1. Jane says:

        Awesome! Thanks!! I am excited to try it out! Yummy!

  70. Mihika says:

    I don’t have measuring cups! :( Could you give me the weight of the flour and the chocolate chips? Thank you :)

    1. It’s about 70 grams. And just throw in a handful of chocolate chips. There’s no exact measurement for this; it’s how ever many YOU want :).

  71. Rosa says:

    Did mine with Coconut flour (all I had) had to double the “milk” bc was too dry, but still YUMMY!!!

  72. Sarah C says:

    Katie! I made these and OMG they are delicious!!! I didnt bother to put them on sticks, though. They just went straight to my mouth :).

  73. I tried this with whole wheat flour, regular skim milk, additional 2 tsp of unsweetened cocoa powder, and chocolate sprinkles instead of chocolate chips. It tasted like brownie batter! Didn’t bother to freeze it though. I just had to spoon in into my mouth right from the bowl on impulse. It smelt so good! After all it was supposed to be raw… right? Haha Anyway, it was DELICIOUS but too much salt for me though (no idea why) so I added extra sugar to balance it out! 😀

  74. Val says:

    Made these this morning! As chocolate chip funfetti cookie ball pops!! I may have had a few before they were “pop” and YUM!!!! I love how its the perfect size little treat!!!

  75. Dr. V says:

    Ok, confession… I skipped the “pops” and even the “balls” and just ate the batter right out of the bowl with a spoon!! :) thanks for your awesome blog! I have made several of your recipes and plan to use some to demonstrate to my patients that they can have tummy desserts that are actually healthy and allow then to still stick to their nutrition goals! Thanks!!!

    1. Haha you are so welcome! I usually just eat the dough too! And I make a huge batch of dough, squish it into cookie shapes (not cookie balls, but actual cookies) and freeze the leftovers to thaw later and eat more raw cookies :).

      1. Dr. V says:

        Leftovers? You are funny! 😛

  76. Dr. V says:

    **yummy not tummy… darn autotype… LOL

  77. Summer says:

    Ok. I’m 22, and still giggled like a middle schooler when I read “fat-free balls”.

    That being said, these look delicious

    1. Oh goodness, you’re gonna love my banana bon bons then. Unfortunately, I had to use the phrase” freeze your balls.” 😕

  78. Marissa says:

    You are a genius! I love your blog! It helps me get my kids to eat healthy food without them knowing, a very difficult task!! I’m thinking cookie dough balls for breakfast…totally amazeballs!!!

    1. Awww Marissa, thank you so so much! :)

  79. Sabrina says:

    Such a great idea. I wanted to make something healthy to and i came up with protein cake pops. I omitted part of the cake batter and re placed it with whey protein. They came out really yummy! :)

  80. Lucia says:

    I honestly never understood the facination of eating raw cookie dough. Couple of my friends go sick eating raw cookie dough, but good luck with your venture, Katie. My husband took some cake balls I made last night to his office and they were a huge, I mean, huge hit with everyone there. So for those of you on here that think cake pops or balls will die, think again.

  81. Amanda says:

    I made these the fat free way (sans margarine). Two things to note: 1. without the margarine, they are very liquidy, so I am eating mine with a spoon. ;-p 2. Do NOT add the white sugar- I made mine with the brown sugar and they were MORE than sweet enough.

  82. Monica says:

    Hey! These look GREAT!! I was just wondering though, when you said you love them with oat flour, is that just oats ground up? I hope so, because I can’t have wheat anything and I SOO want to make these!!!

    1. Yes, oat flour is just ground-up oats (very finely ground). But if you use oats, you’ll have to measure the amount AFTER blending. (In other words, don’t use 1/2 cup oats if it says “1/2 cup oat flour.” You’ll need to use more oats.)

  83. Monica says:

    Fantasic!! I am SOO looking forward to making these!! They are SO cute and I KNOW they will be great!

  84. Anonymous says:

    how long do you freeze???

    1. There’s not really a set time. I just leave them in the freezer; that way they keep for weeks :).

  85. Isabel Barganier says:

    Hi Katie! Omg! This look sooooooo delicious! I love cookie dough A LOT, so I’m definitely making these ASAP! Thanks so much for this recipe! :)

  86. Jyl says:

    New to your blog, discovered you from skinnytaste, I was just wondering, how many balls do you make for the 23 calories? I sure discovered a lot of new yummy sounding recipes looking for the answer though!

    1. Oh wow, I can’t believe I never wrote that in. I am so sorry!
      Unfortunately, I don’t really remember how many I got (I made them back in May). I’m editing the recipe to take down the nutrition link. Sorry for the confusion… I guess it gives me an excuse to make them again ;).

  87. Sherlock says:

    I made these using rolled oats instead. I really don’t like the idea of eating raw dough that’s made with flour. It makes me gag eating unbaked flour. They tasted great using the rolled oats!

  88. YESSS!!! This is exactly what I’ve been looking for and I didn’t even know it :)

  89. Update:

    Just made this (since it’s the quickest recipe of life LOL) and it’s AMAZING!! I didn’t even bother making the balls, I’m just eating it out of a cup LOL…I made it with the oat flour as you suggested (YUM!) and I partially ground my chocolate chunks to make sure each bite was super chocolatey AND to amp up the already great flavor, I ground up some walnuts and mixed those in too…fantastic…easy…everything is already in my pantry…this makes my tummy VERY happy…lol

  90. Sofi says:

    This is probably me being really slow, but on your measurements what do you mean by T and C? Im hoping this is a continental thing and Im not just being silly!

    So excited to make these healthy versions tho..

  91. Amandaleigh02 says:

    I just tried these and they were great! I added a little protein powder and I loved them! Thank you for the great recipe!

  92. Kathy says:

    The cookie ball pops were delish!!!

  93. Debbie says:

    These are amazing!!!

  94. elizabeth says:

    Yum! I dont have vegan butter so i used peanut butter. SO GOOD!

  95. Marsha says:

    How do you store these? You said to freeze them, to get them to set, and then didn’t mention storage. Please let me know! If you already answered this in another comment, I’m sorry, but there were so many comments! I love your blog, and am so ready to make all your recipes! Thank you!

    1. You can store them in the freezer as well :).

      1. Marsha says:

        Can you store them on the counter for a couple of days?

  96. Anonymous says:

    These look cute. How many will the recipe make for 23 calories a ball?

      Hmmm… that’s really weird! This post is over a year old, and I don’t know why I didn’t write in how many it made. I just did some quick math and I *think* it would yield about 14 balls (including the white sugar) for 23 calories each.

    I absolutely love anything to do with sweets, love cake pops. Sweets is one thing I don’t include in my diet, which is bad. I like the idea that these are low calories so I can eat 5 and not feel bad:) You have a ton of great healthier recipes. Keep up the awesome work you truly are awesome at tweaking things and making them delicious.

    I just made a batch of this up using spelt flour and I changed the butter to coconut oil and left out the white sugar, and OMG it is so yum. It is going to be a challenge not to eat it all! I can’t wait for my new blender to arrive because I am dying to try the raspberry fudge cake!

    I have a question – it is possible to use oat flour without any thermal preparation? Is it OK for kids?
    And about the fats – can I use almond mousse?

    Thank you! Great blog by the way!

    1. Oat flour is fine to eat raw. Sorry, I’ve never heard of almond mousse!

    Hi Katie!
    Thank you for the answer!
    Here it is the mousse I wrote. Well, it is in German, but it is 100% almonds.–130100.html

    how are they 23 calories? how many do you get from a recipe??

  102. Maybe it was already suggested, but why not melt some dark chocolate and dip them in that? My favorite part of the cake pop is the hard chocolate/white chocolate cover and the soft gooey cake inside :)

    I made these tonight. Yum! I did oat flour, no fat or oil, and 1% dairy milk. Mine ended up so runny that it would have been impossible to make them into balls. I spread this on graham crackers instead. Still yummy. I did include the white sugar and it was very sweet. I’d omit it next time. I would also decrease the amount of chocolate chips.

    Katie, how many do you intend this to serve? Like how many balls did you calculate to get the calorie count? Just trying to figure out how many calories I ate. Thanks!

  104. Katie says:

    Awesome idea :) I made theses last night and on a random impulse dipped them in chocolate and then rolled them in coconut flakes. I love your blog and your recipes.although i do tend to stray alot 😛

    I made these yesterday and while very good, I don’t think I made them right! Was I supposed to use 1/3c of flour PLUS 1/4c of flour, or 1/3c flour OR 1/4c flour? I used the “plus” approach and mine came out VERY sticky and couldn’t really form a ball. Also, I found that the recipe made about 16 balls each being 50 calories so I must’ve went wrong somewhere. I ended up popping them in the microwave for 2 minutes and they became pretty yummy puffs, but I wish I had cookie balls :/

  106. Sammi says:

    hey i just LOVE your blog. i tried making these today, and did the same thing as brooke and got similar results (ended up being too sticky to make into balls), so instead i just got a spoon and ate the mixture. it was SOO GOOD! tasted just like cookie dough <3

    i don't know if i'm doing something wrong, but i REALLY want to make cookie ball pops not just dough… but it tastes good regardless. thank you SOO much for posting soo many yummy recipes XD

    How many balls does this make so that one is 23 calories?

  108. Emily says:

    Hi Katie! I love love this recipe. However, you said each ball has 23 calories. How many balls does the whole batch make?

    I used white flour and about 2 tbsp choc chips. After calculating however, my whole batch came close to 700 calories!! I made 8 balls so that was close too 100 per ball. What am I doing wrong? If I used oat flour, it still wouldn’t be that much lower?

  109. Avid Baker says:

    Hi Katie, just a quick question, how many of these does this recipe make? Thanks, love your recipes!

    Can I use coconut flour as my… well… _flour_?

  113. P says:

    Hi Katie! This looks delicious. I know you said they don’t NEED to be baked, but can they be? Would they turn out like proper cookies if they were baked, or does the recipe only suit for freezing? Just curious :)

  114. Emily says:

    I made these last night, put them in the freezer, and ate them all today! They were so good!! I substituted half of the flour for oats, omitted the butter/oil, and used half chocolate chips, half raisins. They were absolutely delicious and were even better than store bought “everything” cookie dough I tried one time. Thank you so much for the wonderful fun recipe!! :)

  115. gisela says:

    I think I’m going to makeep this but skip the sticks and rolling it and just eat it straight out of the mixing bowl. 

  116. Marlys says:

    How do you store these? I’m helping a local cafe find a healthy cookie recipe and they need to know how they are best stored and how long they last in storage… ps. I love your site

  117. Ciera says:

    Yum…. Do you think it would work to put this in frozen yogurt for cookie dough froyo?

  118. Winter says:

    I noticed that it has baking soda, is that safe to eat uncooked?

    Hi Katie! I absolutely love your website but I’m a little confused. How many of the cookie balls did you make? when i calculated the calories i didn’t come up with 23 for each when following the healthy chocolate chip cookie recipe that said it would yield 7 to 11 cookies

  120. nitzan hersh says:

    can i bake these? how well will they turn out? i tried the “not guilty” chocolate chip cookies and they were amazing btw!!

    1. Unofficial CCK Helper says:

      Yes you can bake them. But you should use the oil version if baking, which would make them almost exactly like the cookie recipe you did try.

  121. Amy says:

    I just made these tonight. I actually made them the first time and they were so runny. I used 40 grams of milk and vegan butter. I then tried it again with 27 grams of milk. They are still runny but less so. Am I just using too much milk? I am hoping by freezing them they’ll harden a little but they really are not dough. They do not look like Katie’s!

        Thanks but I made these to the T…I think maybe I am confused because I use weight over measuring spoons. Should that make a difference?

  122. Miranda says:

    How many pops does this make for each to be 23 calories?

  123. val says:

    do i have to bake them? or eat them as it is???

    do i have to bake them ?? or just eat them straight

  125. abby says:

    I literally ate the entire batch tonight

  126. AnJanette says:

    I still make cake pops but w/o the frosting. I don’t care for the texture. I make them full cake in a two piece pan with homemade cake recipies and the best possible ingredients. We pipe frostings or fillings in upon request before dipping. Yes, they come out round not acorn shaped. Take a peek if you will
