These vegan & grain-free Cookie Dough Energy Bites are a quick, easy and delicious healthy snack that are filled with tons of drool-worthy cookie dough flavor and texture. They are dairy-free, egg-free, soy-free, peanut-free, gluten-free, plant-based and grain-free. Best of all, they only require one bowl and a spoon to stir everything together. No fancy equipment needed! They also keep really well in the fridge for anytime you need an energy boost (or anytime a cookie dough craving hits!).
These are the energy bites of my dreams…
I’ve been making these grain-free and vegan cookie dough energy bites for the past couple of weeks and I just had to share with you all, especially with back-to-school season in full swing. I don’t know about you but snacks are my life right now. We are constantly on the go and needing nutritious and filling snacks that everyone can enjoy. My kids go absolutely crazy for these energy bites. They basically taste like raw cookie dough. And who would EVER turn that down? The answer is no one. So you simply must make these today!
The cookie dough energy bites come together in literally minutes. And that is exactly what I need this busy time of year. It is like an instant snack that only gets better as it chills. If you ever have had raw chilled cookie dough then you know exactly what I mean.
I usually double or triple the recipe and store extra in my freezer. To double or triple the recipe you can select the 2x or 3x scale button toward the top right corner of the recipe card to update the quantities so you don’t have to do the math yourself.
How to Make the Cookie Dough Energy Bites
This is a hard one to mess up. You simply stir everything together in one bowl and roll into tiny balls. I like to use this stainless steel scooper for perfectly sized and even energy bites. You can enjoy right away if you are in a rush. Or, store the energy bites in your refrigerator to let them harden up a bit. I like the texture better once they have chilled for a couple of hours.
Try hard not to eat the batter before turning them into energy bites… I speak from experience here.
All you need for these grain-free and vegan cookie dough energy bites:
- almond flour
- coconut flour
- almond butter
- maple syrup
- vanilla extract
- mini vegan dark chocolate chips
That’s it! They taste exactly like the real deal without any eggs, dairy, oil or refined flours. The maple syrup provides wonderful flavor and sweetness. The coconut flour combined with the vanilla makes it taste like cookie dough. The salt helps to bring out the flavors plus it makes them that much more addictive. And the chocolate chips… well, you know!
We are all hooked on these over here.&
