2 Ingredient Coconut Cookie Dough Balls!

You know me.

A simple no-bake snack that can be made in under 5 minutes, and both kids and adults will gobble them up: https://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2012/05/02/2-ingredient-coconut-cookie-dough-balls/

You know I like recipes that are fast and easy.  So these coconut cookie dough balls are pretty much a dream come true. First of all, they taste like coconut cookie dough. And secondly, they’re no-bake, with just two ingredients.

It can’t get any easier than that!

I also now have new recipe tab: 5 Minute Dessert Recipes.

(If you click on the above link, you’ll see all of my recipes that take 5 minutes or less to make! I’m working on a “no-bake” tab as well.)

I’m not even sure I can call this a “recipe.” It’s too simple!

Coconut Cookie Dough Balls

(no added sugar!)

  • Scant 2/3 cup pitted dates (80 g) (I like Sunmaid brand, because they’re softer. See the nutritional info link, below, for substitution notes)
  • 1 and 1/2 tbsp coconut butter or Homemade Coconut Butter
  • Tiny pinch salt (can be omitted if desired)
  • Optional: shredded coconut, chocolate chips, etc.

Blend everything together in a food processor. This makes a small batch, so I used my Magic Bullet. If you have a bigger processor, it might be best to double or triple the recipe so everything blends more smoothly. (The recipe can be done in a blender, but the results are stickier.) Smush into one big ball, then roll into little balls or bars or cookie-cuttered shapes. These will last in the refrigerator for a few weeks or frozen for a few months, or they can be frozen.

Note: the cookie dough balls in the photos contain nuts. But after taking photos I revamped the recipe to make it nut-free!

    A couples hours after my first post……One double batch of Chocolate Larabars……..which is too big for my food processor. I had a sticky–chocolate mess and had to divide it up. But alas. They taste great. Instead of adding any water to get it a bit thinner I added some fresh frozen cherries.
    Then I made your Oatmeal Raisin Larabars. Your chocolate dilemma is solved when you make this batch in the same container as the chocolate larabars. Wah-la Chocolate Oatmeal Raisin Larabars. I added 3 drops of dark rum. Its heavenly!! 🙂

    What did I do wrong? I doubled the recipe and added shredded coconut and a tiny bit of mini chocolate chips. It wasn’t sticky and holding form. It just crumbled when I tried working with it.

    It’s also very versatile, you can but almost anything in it. I put coconut oil, shredded coconut and chocolate chips.
