Virtual Vegan Potluck: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

It’s that time of year again. Time to party til our tummy’s hurt with the Virtual Vegan Potluck! Big shout out to Annie for creating this amazing online party, and giving me another excuse to stuff my suck with sugar and chocolate!

Who loves cookie dough? I love cookie dough so much, that whenever it comes time to make cookies I eat more dough than baked cookies. I usually eat myself sick, but it’s just SOOO good. Before I went vegan I still ate the dough!

You can imagine my excitement when I discovered this deliciously easy recipe online!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 c raw cashews
  • 1/3 c oats
  • 2 Tbsp Agave
  • 1 Tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 c Chocolate Chips

Directions:

Blend the oats and cashews until they make a flour like substance. Then add the agave, maple syrup, and vanilla. Blend it again. When the dough starts to ball up and bang around your blender, you have the right consistency. Then add the chocolate chips and stir by hand. This makes a small batch, so I call it a personal batch. You may choose to share ;).

I made these twice. Once with my blender, and once with a food processor. The photos I have are from the food processor which didn’t make the bites as smooth. I also stirred the batter by hand because the food processor was small, this also made for a lack of smoothness. When I used the blender I used honey instead of agave (which isn’t vegan for some of you) and this made the balls smoother, but STICKY! Either way this recipe is quick and delicious!

The white chocolate bites were for a non vegan. She loved them ;). To get a better idea of what these looked like when I used my blender, this photo is from the source of the recipe.

So good.

  1. I’ve made those cookie dough balls before and can vouch for them tasting AH-MAZING! Although I should probably add that vegan batter or not, I have trouble practicing any restraint ;)!

  2. UMMM this is like the coolest thing ever!?!?!?! Its also a little like pinterest because I am always going to want to continue clicking! FUNNN/I will never get work done ever again! The bites look super yummy! Funny story..whenever I make something with awesome ingredients like this recipe, I’m like “hey, its okay if you eat them all at once, there’s only cashews and oats in these, pffff.” yeah.. quite the problem, stomach ache GALORE! :D

  3. I’m also a cookie dough fanatic! I’ve made my husband these once and loved eating all the dough as I was making them!
    My sister made them for him for his birthday this year, but dipped them in non-dairy chocolate. An excellent option!

  4. Ha, we ate the dough before going vegan too, but I love that we can always eat the raw version of anything now without risk! Love these Britt! Thanks so much for being a part of this!

  5. I was just saying today that one of the best parts of being vegan is that you can eat the cookie dough and not get sick! These look great – can’t wait to try them! :-)

  6. We do something similar to make brownie bites and oaty bites – but not with cashews and chips. A great variation. Love easy and delicious! Thanks for sharing ;-)
