I first made them a few weeks ago and they’ve been on repeat ever since!
The bites taste like cookie dough but without any dairy, eggs, refined sugars or grains!
And dipped in dark chocolate are over the top delicious and the perfect snack or dessert!
Best part? They are super quick and easy to make!
So let’s make them!
I have a cooking video on this page so you can see how easy they are to make.
As with all my recipes, there is a printable recipe with exact measurements and directions on the bottom of this page.
They are made with wholesome ingredients and my favorite part is that they are sweetened with dates, adding extra nutrients without sacrificing any flavor!
All you need is 8 ingredients:
mini chocolate chips (we used Enjoy Life mini chips)
dark chocolate chips
And they come together quickly!
All you do is pulse the almond flour, dates, coconut oil, almond butter, vanilla and sea salt in a food processor for about a minute until it is all well combined and forms a dough that is sticky enough to form a ball when pressed together with your hands, but not over sticky.
Add in the chips and pulse a few times to just combine.
Then using your hands and a heaping tablespoon about of dough, roll the dough into 12 balls.
Place the balls in the freezer for 10 minutes to chill.
The cookie dough bites taste amazing at this point by the way!
They taste just like chocolate chip cookie dough!
But I always love the extra chocolate, so while the cookie dough bites chill, melt your dark chocolate.
You can melt your chocolate + 1 tablespoon coconut oil in a double boiler (recommended), sauce pan on very low heat or even the microwave.
Pro tip: if you make lots of treats with chocolate, a double boiler is a great thing to have in your kitchen! It allows you to melt the chocolate slowly so that it is smooth and luscious, without burning or seizing up.
These No Bake Cookie Dough Truffles are packed with goodness but taste like a decadent treat! Super easy to make, they are edible cookie dough bites, dipped in dark chocolate for a secretly nourishing, indulgent snack or dessert. Food Processor needed.
Author: Healthy Gluten-Free Family
Recipe type: Dessert, Snack, No Bake
Cuisine: Gluten-Free, Vegan
Serves: 12 Truffles
1 cup almond flour
⅔ cup dates
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
3 tablespoons almond butter
1½ teaspoons vanilla
heaping ⅛ teaspoon sea salt
2-3 tablespoons mini chocolate chips (to taste)
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1 tablespoon coconut oil
In a large food processor add almond flour, dates, coconut oil, almond butter, vanilla, and sea salt. Run the food processor for about 1 minute -- you want the dates to break down and for all the ingredients to form a dough that's sticky enough to form into a ball when pressed together. Pulse a few extra times if you need to.
Add mini chips into the food processor and pulse just a few times so that chips mix into the dough without breaking down.
Unplug the food processor, remove dough onto a piece of wax paper. A heaping tablespoon at a time, roll dough in your hands to form 12 balls. Place on a parchment lined small baking sheet. Chill in the freezer for 10 minutes.
While the cookie dough bites chill, melt dark chocolate and 1 tablespoon coconut oil using a double boiler (ideally), or on very low heat in a saucepan or melt in in microwave. Pro tip: If you make lots of recipes with melted chocolate, a double boiler is great because it melts the chocolate slowly so that it is smooth and doesn't over cook/ seize up.
Remove chocolate from heat.
Using a fork, toothpick or fingers, quickly dip chilled cookie dough bite in the melted chocolate and place back on the parchment lined baking sheet. Drizzle extra chocolate over the tops if you like. Place back in the freezer or in the refrigerator for about 10 -15 minutes for chocolate to set.
Store truffles in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or freezer for a month.
