Cookie Dough Snack Balls

Cookie Dough Snack Balls from Primally Inspired I’ve been holding out on you all with this cookie dough snack balls recipe. Sorry guys! I’ve been making these babies every week since February.

 

And 3 months later, they are still one of my very favorite things. Which is kind of a big deal because I am usually obsessed with a new favorite thing every other week ;)

 

I make a batch of these cookie dough snack balls at the beginning of the week and then through the whole week, I have a nourishing, quick, grab and go snack ready whenever I want one. I love ‘em and everybody else does, too!

Cookie Dough Snack Balls from Primally Inspired This cookie dough snack balls recipe is actually a short cut to one of my previous and very loved recipes (THIS one). I am always looking for short cuts in the kitchen. Don’t get me wrong – I love to cook and bake, but I also love to do a million other things (especially spending time outside!). Spending hours in the kitchen is just not for me.

 

So I found a way to make that previous recipe of mine even easier – woo! And what I came up with is this recipe I’m giving you today. It’s super simple.

 

And if you want to make it even more simple (because I totally do this when I don’t have the patience to roll into individual balls), just spread the mixture out in a 8×8-inch, parchment lined baking pan. 5 minutes and done! Refrigerate until hardened, cut into squares and eat :)

Ingredients
  • 1-1/2 cups unsweetened coconut flakes (find HERE)
  • ½ cup nut butter of choice or peanut butter. For nut allergies, use sunbutter (find HERE)
  • ½ cup coconut oil (find HERE), melted or softened
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ⅔ cup mini chocolate chips (I use THESE because they are dairy free and soy free)
Instructions
  1. Combine all the ingredients, except mini chocolate chips into a bowl and stir until well incorporated.
  2. Stir in mini chocolate chips.
  3. Roll out into bite size balls (about 1 inch).
  4. Refrigerate or freeze until hardened (only takes a few minutes!)
  5. Eat and enjoy!
Notes
Keep any leftovers in the fridge or freezer.

*To make this even more simple if you don't feel like rolling into balls, just spread the mixture into an 8x8-inch, parchment lined baking pan. Refrigerate until hardened and cut into squares.

    am i nuts for making this as soon as you posted it?? haha the truth is that i was at the mall today and so hungry and i wished i had an easy food to take with me that fits in my purse.

    i had everything but chocolate chips (embarrassing, i know) so i chopped up a banana and put that in for the sweetness. i guess they are banana cookie balls. i tasted the batter and it’s amazing!! can’t wait to have one straight from the fridge. they weren’t messy at all or sticky like a lot of the recipes with honey. i’m sure it will remind me of eating those rolls of cookie dough with the fun shapes on them!

    I don’t see honey in the recipe, but mine doesn’t form. It is to soft and just falls off everywhere. I don’t eat coconut and so used oats. But it wouldn’t form at all for me. I placed it in the fridge to harden the coconut oil so I could try to roll it and then it was just a hard block in my bowl. Do you have any suggestions?

    • Carrie says:

      I had the same problem you had, mine were too oily to form into balls so I put it in the fridge to harden up, then it was too hard. I let it sit out to soften a bit and then was able to roll them into balls and put them back into the fridge to harden. I used cashew butter and dried blueberries instead of chocolate chips. These balls are great snacks but they’re too oily for me, so I’m going to play around with the amount of coconut oil (start with 2 tablespoons maybe) or just eliminate it completely. I think walnut butter would be great too!

  8. These look amazing! I love quick, easy and healthy treats like this. Especially when there’s nut butter involved. :D

    Thanks for a great recipe — I love the small ingredients list! I took some of these to a get-together with (non-paleo) friends and they went over really well. I used homemade cashew butter. :)

    Just made these and they are wonderful. I made them with my vegan son in mind, but we all love them and they are very satisfying. We started with peanut butter, but I’m going to try almond butter next. Also lots of possibilities for add ins!

    These are awesome. I made them with raisins instead of chocolate chips and they were great. Ours need to live in the freezer though
