Cookie dough ball ingredients

The recipe calls for just five ingredients: chocolate chips, sweetener of choice, a pinch of salt, nut butter of choice, and oat flour or protein powder.

The nut butter can be cashew, macadamia, peanut butter, or almond butter. For nut free cookie dough balls, try pumpkin seed butter or sunflower butter.

You can use any all purpose sweetener, such as regular or unrefined sugar, honey or pure maple syrup, or erythritol for sugar free cookie dough balls.

If using liquid sweetener instead of granulated, add more oat flour as needed to achieve a cookie dough texture.

Feel free to go with your favorite plain or flavored protein powder if you do not wish to use oat flour. Adjust the sweetener amount if using a sweetened protein powder.

How to make the cookie dough bites

Start by stirring everything together in a medium sized mixing bowl until it turns into a soft cookie dough texture.

Break into pieces, and roll into balls with your hands or a cookie scoop.

Enjoy the no bake cookie dough bites now, or you can bake them if you prefer.

For baked cookie dough balls, preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the dough balls on a greased or lined cookie sheet, and bake for eight minutes.

Recipe storage tips

These chocolate chip snack balls go quickly!

However, if you do happen to find yourself with leftovers, store them in an airtight container on the counter for up to two days or in the refrigerator for up to three weeks.

Want instant cookie dough whenever a craving hits? Transfer the balls to a lidded container and place a sheet of parchment paper between each layer of cookie balls so they won’t stick together.

Freeze the container for up to four months or so, and take a cookie dough ball straight from the freezer whenever you wish.

    These look delicious! Do you think cocoa powder would work in place of protein powder? I would imagine they absorb liquid similarly…
