Vegan Edible Cookie Dough Bites (no brown sugar)

These vegan edible cookie dough bites are SO easy to make and such a delicious sweet snack that will sure put a sugar craving away. Made healthier without using brown sugar, these chocolate chip bites are made with oat flour to make them safe to eat straight from the bowl without cooking the dough. Also, gluten-free, nut-free and made without eggs.

Servings 12 Bites


  • 1 ½ cup oat flour - finely ground
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil - do not substitute for any other oil!
  • 2 tbsp plant-based milk - oat or soy milk for nut-free
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • cup vegan mini dark chocolate chips


  • In a large bowl, combine the oat flour, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, vanilla extract and milk. Stir well to combine. You are looking for a uniform batter (it will look too soft/thin at first, this is normal). Then, add the chocolate chips and incorporate them into the batter.
  • Transfer the dough in the fridge and let it sit for 20-30 minutes. This is essential for the dough to be easier to handle (the coconut oil needs to set).
  • Then, use about 1 heaping tablespoon of dough at the time and roll in between your palms. I like to use a mini ice cream scoop for that, it gives me 12 mini bites. Enjoy!



  • Storage: keep them in the fridge in a covered container for up to a week. Can also be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months. Eat them cold or let them rest at room temperature for 10-15 minutes for a softer bite.
  • Be sure to use mini chocolate chips. If you only have larger, then consider roughly chopping them first. The balls are small and the mini kind simply works better.
  • For this recipe, I love using a non-refined coconut oil. I think the subtle coconut flavor pairs well with the other ingredients, but refined will work just the same.
  • I love to use a mini ice cream scoop to portion the balls as this allows to have them all the same size. But really, since the dough is not baked, you can really shape them just the way you want.
