5 Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites Recipe (V, GF): a quick ‘n easy recipe for decadent no bake cookie dough bites made with healthy gluten free ingredients and PLENTY of chocolate!! Vegan, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Refined Sugar-Free.
Can you believe it’s been 16 months since I’ve shared a cookie dough recipe with you? It’s also been about 2 years since I shared my reader-favorite no bake chocolate chip cookie dough bites. Update: I’ve since come to my senses (hehe) and shared this Dairy-Free Coconut Flour Cookie Dough Recipe and my Healthy Gluten Free Cookie Dough Bars!
You could call those bites a cult favorite of sorts because I get emails/comments about them fairly frequently, but they never make it to the top 20 or even top 40 recipes of any given day. Poor guy!
Although that recipe will always have a special place in my cookie jar heart (that didn’t sound as great as I thought it would hehe), it’s not quite on the level of simplicity and ease that you’ve come to know and love here at Beaming Baker.
For one, they’re called cookie dough bites, but they’re made with coconut flakes! Boooooo!!! Alright, yes I love coconut flakes just as much as you do (you do, right?), especially in these no bake almond butter coconut bites, but ya just can’t sneak coconut into a recipe without it being a featured character in the title. (Unless it’s coconut oil.)
I’ve had so many requests and comments for how to swap that ingredient and this ingredient in that cookie dough recipe. So I decided it was high time to create a brand-new, simple as can be, as few-ingredients-involved-as-possible 5 Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites recipe.
The old cookie dough recipe called for 9 whopping ingredients. You had to make flax eggs, bust out rolled oats (which some people really did not love) and every-thang! This time, we’re gonna dial it down to just FIVE INGREDIENTS.
You heard me right. 5 ingredients. That’s it.
I tried my darnedest to leave out anything that wasn’t necessary or that you might not want in your homemade cookie dough bites. Here’s lookin’ at you, coconut flakes and oats! 😉
They’re so unbelievably easy to put together–possibly the easiest cookie dough bites recipe you’ll ever make. And they taste just like the real thing. All you have to do is throw all of the ingredients in a bowl, stir until thickened, scoop and roll into bites. Then, leave the bites for just a few minutes to thicken up.
That’s it. For real.
Oh, and you’ve GOT to try them warmed up after the first day. They get really firm after that… and it’s a problem easily solved by a few seconds in the microwave. They literally taste like perfectly under-baked, fresh-out-of-the-oven chocolate chip cookies. And speaking of no bake goodies that taste amazing when warmed up, you have got to try my No Bake Almond Butter Paleo Brownie Bites heated up for a few seconds. They taste just like fresh baked brownies! Or my brand new paleo cookie dough recipe: Paleo Cookie Dough Bites!
Raise your hand if that sounds heavenly to you.
That’s what I thought. 😉
And if it doesn’t, allow me to go over the finest points about these 5 Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites. They’re:
- so good… and taste just like real cookie dough

5 Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites Recipe (V, GF): a quick ‘n easy recipe for decadent no bake cookie dough bites made with healthy gluten free ingredients and PLENTY of chocolate!! Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free.
Cookie Dough Bites
- 1 2/3 cups + 1 teaspoon gluten free oat flour
- 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil
- 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons vegan chocolate chips (mini and regular)
- 2 tablespoons vegan chocolate chips (mini and regular)
- Line a small or medium baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper. Set aside.
- Add oat flour, maple syrup, oil and vanilla to a medium bowl. Using a spoon, stir until thickened and well incorporated. If needed, use a rubber spatula to fold together into a cohesive dough. Fold in ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons chocolate chips.
- Using a cookie scoop, scoop and drop balls of dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Here are the 1-tablespoon scoop and 2-tablespoon scoops that I use. Using your hands, shape into spheres, or keep as is if you like the shape. Optionally, dot with 2 tablespoons chocolate chips.
- Allow to firm up for about 5 minutes. Enjoy! Storing instructions below.
Best if enjoyed the first day; Day 2 and on, the bites will become much drier. Day 2 and forward, to soften, heat in 10-second increments in the microwave until warm.
Store for 1-2 weeks in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator.
