Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites (V+GF): An easy, guilt-free recipe for seriously delicious chocolate chip cookie dough bites. Vegan and Gluten Free.
Who here loves eating raw cookie dough? Can I get a show of hands?
As for the rest of the people not raising their hands… Is it because you’re currently wearing TWO very heavy watches?
Or is it because there are usually raw eggs in said cookie dough? Is it because ya feel kinda guilty eating cookie dough? Or is it because you like being asked, like, a million questions in a row?
Well, if you said yes to any of the above questions, I’ve got exactly what you need, including some much lighter watches. (Did you really say yes to being asked a million questions? Well, there’s another for ya. ?)
For years, I’ve heard Erik talk about how much he absolutely loves, loves, loves eating raw cookie dough. You would think, if he could, he’d trade me in for a big tub of cookie dough. Erik, if you’re reading this, I’m giving you a dirty look right now.
But then again, who else would let him take a big mixing spoon full of that raw goodness if it weren’t for me? (There I go with more questions…)
What a quandary.
I’ve also enjoyed a misty watercolored memory or two reminiscing about the days before we knew eating raw cookie dough was dangerous and all of that other adult stuff.
Well, folks (and Erik, that cookie dough eating traitor), I’ve finally cooked up (but not really, because, ya know…) a no bake, raw or whatever you wanna call it, eggless, dairy-free cookie dough that you can feel good about eating.
That’s right, good about eating. Do you love me already?
This is one of the coolest, coolest things about vegan baking: you can eat/test/faceplant whatever it is you’re stirring up in that mixing bowl of yours. Cuz… no uncooked danger zone. Yay!!

- 1 ½ cups gluten free rolled oats
- 1 ¼ cups gluten free oat flour
- ¾ cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ cup melted coconut oil
- ½ cup pure maple syrup
- 2 flax eggs (whisk together 2 tablespoons ground flax + 6 tablespoons warm water, let set for 15 mins)
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup vegan chocolate chips
- In a large bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients: oats, flour, coconut, and salt.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the wet ingredients: coconut oil, maple syrup, flax eggs and vanilla. Whisk until smooth.
- Pour the wet mixture over the dry mixture. Use a rubber spatula or wooden spoon to fold the ingredients together until well combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
