These Grain-Free and Vegan 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 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!).
- In a medium sized bowl add these dry ingredients: almond flour, coconut flour and salt. Stir with a spoon to combine well. Add the wet ingredients next: almond butter, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Stir again until well incorporated. Fold in the mini dark chocolate chips.
- Form into energy bites using your hands. I like to use this stainless steel cookie scoop for perfectly sized energy bites that are all even.
- Enjoy immediately or for best results, store in an airtight container in your refrigerator and enjoy once they are well chilled (about 4 hours). They should last up to two weeks (although they never last more than a day or two in our house!).
- You can also store the cookie dough energy bites in your freezer if you don’t plan to enjoy right away. They should last up to three months. You can thaw them out at room temperature for five minutes before enjoying.
For the best flavor, I do not recommend using roasted almond butter. Also, make sure your raw, creamy almond butter is nice and runny. A hardened almond butter will not work well in this recipe. If it is a brand new jar, be sure to stir in the oils well before adding so you aren’t getting all oil in the recipe.
I have not tested this with other nut or seed butters but I imagine that cashew butter would work very well here since it has a neutral taste.
