Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

No butter.

No eggs. No flour.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles – no egg, no butter, “no bake” safe-to-eat chocolate chip cookie dough. SO GOOD @choccoveredkt

No shoes, no shirt, no service.

And yet… These secretly-healthier cookie dough truffles are scarfed down by everyone who’s ever tried them. Even without butter, eggs, and flour, they taste just as sinfully delicious as traditional cookie dough truffles.

Don’t worry if you’re bored of all my Healthy Recipes with Beans.

This is probably the last of my famous bean-dessert recipes you’ll be seeing for quite a while. There are about a billion new dessert recipes I want to post this year, and they all have absolutely nothing to do with beans. But when I remembered beans are considered a lucky food to eat on New Year’s Eve, I *had* to make–and blog about–this one last bean recipe.

I really regret not making a bigger batch.


Eggless Cookie Dough Truffles

(Makes 18-20 truffles)

  • 1/2 can chickpeas or white beans, drained and rinsed (125g after being drained)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • scant 1/8 tsp salt
  • scant 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsp nut butter or oil (If you use peanut butter, they’ll have a slight “pb cookie dough” taste.)
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar (For a sugar-free option, see the very last link of this post.)
  • 2 tbsp chocolate chips, or more if desired
  • 1-2 tbsp rolled oats or quick oats (or flaxmeal, almond flour, etc.)
  • optional: 1 bag chocolate chips, or Healthy Chocolate Sauce
  • optional: milk of choice if needed, to thin it out

Add all ingredients (except chocolate chips) to a food processor, and blend until very smooth. Then mix in the chocolate chips and form balls. (I used a melon baller.) You can eat these plain, but if you wish to cover them in chocolate, proceed thusly: Allow to chill in the fridge. Once chilled, make up the healthy chocolate sauce (linked above) OR melt chocolate chips with 2 tsp coconut oil (or shortening). Take the balls from the fridge and cover in chocolate, then return them to the fridge to harden. Stored in the fridge, I imagine these will keep for 3-4 days. But I can’t be entirely sure, since my truffles were completely gone in closer to 3-4 minutes!

I found this sequined shirt hiding in the back of my closet with the tags still on! It was actually warm enough on New Year’s Eve to wear a sleeveless shirt (70 degrees). Of course, the next morning was 27 degrees. That’s quintessential Dallas weather. If you don’t like it at any given moment, wait five minutes; it’ll probably change.

    I always liked cookie dough ice cream but I never seem to buy that flavor. Most of the time I get vanilla because I’m serving it alongside something else – like cake or with fresh fruit. But it’s yummy stuff. Then again, I love ice cream in general. 🙂

  2. Tricia says

    I just made a batch of unhealthy ones and was wondering how I could tweak them to be healthy. I believe I will start here when I make them again. The unhealthy ones were sinfully good…I would imagine these will be also.

  3. Sar says

    Only 40 calories each?!?

    Only you could figure out a way to put a healthy spin on cookie dough truffles! I only wish I’d seen these at Christmastime. My family (and myself) would have EATEN them up! My boyfriend is gonna love these. Oh heck, I will too ;).

  4. Maria @ Beautiful Busy Bee says

    Cookie dough, raw is one of the things I miss the most, now that I know I’m allergic to wheat. Wheat/gluten free cookie dough usually tastes kinda weird. I totes get what you’re talking about with the weather, because I live in Austin and it’s the same way, bipolar weather, but also with allergens.

  5. Sarah @ See Sarah Bake says

    I made my own version of cookie dough truffles last week but they definitely weren’t healthy- plenty of butter, flour and sugar :-\ I’ll have to whip up a batch of these as they seem to be a bit more New Year Resolution friendly 😉

  6. Emma says

    Oh my goodness, oh my goodness, thank you for thinking of those of us who have Celiac’s Disease! I am so excited these are gluten free! 🙂 🙂

    And I agree with everyone else. You are so pretty!

  7. Sarah @ See Sarah Bake says

    I made my own version of cookie dough truffles last week but they definitely weren’t healthy. Delicious, but full of plenty of flour, butter, and sugar. I’ll have to whip up a batch of these- they’re a bit more resolutions friendly 😉

  8. Catey Kay says

    That’s exactly what I do: dig out all the cookie dough in the ice cream before anyone else gets a scoop! In fact, I just recently scarfed down almost a whole quart of the stuff by myself…followed by regret 😮

    Appropriately, my New Year’s resolution is to eat healthier…. and that is where your blog comes in handy! 😀

  9. Ally says

    CCK! You looked awesome for your New Year’s celebration! 🙂 I have never had the guts to sport sequins, but you did it with style! I can’t wait to try this recipe!

  10. Grace says

    As soon as I saw this post, I immediately went and made these! They didn’t even have time to get covered in chocolate before they were all eaten up!

    P.S. Reduce the sugar, and this makes a DELICIOUS protein- and fiber-packed breakfast treat! 😉

  11. Anna @ The Guiltless Life says

    Ooh I used to do the exact same thing with cookie dough ice cream – my favourite way to eat it was to pick out all the dough pieces! Haha. I didn’t care that much about the ice cream; it was all about the dough ;).

    I love your bean recipes btw!

    And that is a gorgeous photo – glamour shot! You looked lovely! 🙂

  12. Erin says

    I definitely think I’ll be making these once all my Christmas sweets have been eaten up. 🙂 Love your New Years shirt! Sparkles are a NYE necessity. 🙂

  13. Kit-Kat says

    Oh I LOVED cookie dough ice cream! I did the opposite of you, though. I would save the cookie dough balls for last (being the best part of the ice cream, it seemed perfect to save it for last!). But then my lactose intolerance/allergy to dairy came really strong after I turned seven, so it became harder to enjoy anything with dairy. Thankfully, the switch to dairy-free ice cream saved me a lot of trouble when I turned nine! Now I can REALLY enjoy vegan cookie dough ice cream to the mak 🙂
    BTW, the recipe looks divine!

  14. Char @ says

    I am the saaame with cookie dough ice cream! So now I just make cookie dough and eat it 😀

    No more bean desserts? I realize not everyone likes them, buuuut…

    I LOVE them!! I have made your cookie pie at least 6 times, your pb & j blondies, your cookie dough…I can’t get enough!

    Dallas (my omni boyfriend) loves them, and he can’t tell they’re made of chickpeas.

    My brother, a 16 year old who eats mostly cheeseburgers, loves them!

    My mom, who is suuuuper picky about the health food I feed her, loves them!

    …I could go on, but seriously. Your desserts are amazing 😉

  15. Lena says

    Oh, please don’t stop with the bean desserts! I love them – just two days ago I made the cinnamon roll deep-dish pie, and the cookie pie is one of my favorites to make. And the cookie dough dip… mmm. Seriously, by all means, keep bringing us bean desserts 🙂 And this looks sooooo goooooddddd aaahhhhhh whydowehavenochocolatechipsnooooo D:

  16. Jennifer JCD says

    Happy New Year! You look absolutely dazzling! And the recipe is guaranteed to get four thumbs up from us later tonight.

    I used to love cookie dough ice cream too, but I did the same thing as you and generally made a big mess in doing so. Mums think alike, and mine started making egg-free frozen cookie dough balls for us too. Then we could add ice cream if we wanted it. 🙂

    Oh, I thought of you yesterday morning when i was making boatmeal and added coloured sprinkles to it – funfetti boatmeal with melted chocolate on top – it screamed CCK. 🙂 We’re always big fans of your recipes and stories.

    On that note, will you be doing any running posts this year? Do you still run in the mornings? I always love hearing about your running stories too. Have a great year and I look forward to all the wonderful things your will write about and share with us.

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      Aww 🙂

      I don’t know why sprinkles make me happy… I just like colorful things. Maybe it goes back to when I was little and my mom tried to color everything for holidays. But then again, green mashed potatoes kinda scarred me against mashed potatoes for life!

      Yes, I definitely still run in the mornings, and I definitely still think of you every time it’s under 30 degrees F and I don’t want to go out the door. Have I ever thanked you for being my cold-weather running motivator? 😉
