No bake chocolate chip cookie dough bites
I’m sure at some point we’ve all stolen a taste of raw cookie dough when making chocolate chip cookies, am I right?! While there’s something so delicious about the cookie dough texture and flavor, we know that consuming raw flour and raw eggs in regular cookie dough certainly comes with some risks of consuming harmful bacteria – like salmonella and e. coli. This no bake recipe is the perfect fix for that cookie dough craving without the potential for getting sick from the raw dough of traditional cookies.
These delicious edible cookie dough bites are made with homemade oat flour in place of all purpose flour…and cashew butter in place of raw eggs and butter so that it is safer to eat with a little boost of nutrition!
Since rolled oats are generally considered safe to consume raw, I choose to blend my own rolled oats at home as a pantry staple to use in place of all purpose flour for no bake recipes. You could also use almond flour or coconut flour here as well, but just be aware that the amounts may not work the same as oat flour. If purchasing any pre-made flour at the store, be sure to read the packaging to make sure it has been heat treated to kill potential harmful bacteria and/or if that specific product is unsafe to consume raw.
The cashew butter used in place of eggs and butter adds some creaminess and helps the ingredients stick together. It has a mild nutty flavor as opposed to other nut butters like peanut butter or almond butter…so it doesn’t overpower the “cookie” flavor here.
While plenty of dessert recipes making swaps for more wholesome ingredients use sweeteners like honey or maple syrup, I highly recommend sticking to a granulated white sugar or brown sugar for best results. This recipe uses just enough sugar for that cookie dough texture and a lightly sweetened bite!
List of Equipment Needed
- Mixing bowl
- Measuring cups & spoons

- Medium cookie scoop
- Baking sheet
- Airtight storage container
List of Ingredients needed
mini chocolate chips
milk, more if needed
sea salt, optional
How to make and store these cookie dough bites
To make homemade oat flour for this recipe, you’ll need a bit more than 1 cup of rolled oats to make 1 cup of oat flour. I typically make a large batch of oat flour in advance and store in an airtight container to use as needed
Step 1: Mix all ingredients in a medium sized bowl to combine well. It will be thick! Use small amounts of milk to help create a sticky texture. I find the best way to mix the dough is with some clean hands.
I love using mini semi-sweet chocolate chips in this recipe, but get creative with what you prefer or have on hand – regular chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, etc.
Step 2: Use a medium sized cookie scoop to portion into even sized bites. I typically make 16 bites from this recipe. If you prefer smaller bites, simply use a small cookie scoop or eyeball portions on your own.
Step 3: Roll into balls, place on your baking sheet, and sprinkle with a little bit of sea salt if using
Step 4: Place pan in the fridge or freezer to allow the bites to set and firm up a bit if desired.
Step 5: Store your bites in an airtight container in the fridge for best results and consider making a second batch ASAP because these edible chocolate chip cookie dough balls will go QUICK! 🙂
