This recipe is only the best part of a cookie – the DOUGH! Learn my four simple steps to make these egg-less, no bake vegan protein cookie dough bites.
Have you ever made a batch of cookies and gotten so excited to scrap up that little bit of raw dough still left in the bowl? Don’t worry, I’m with you!
I was inspired to make this recipe because Chocolate Covered Katie has an incredible cookie dough batter made from chickpeas that I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve made. Instead of cookie dough, I decided to make cookie dough bites packed with protein. These vegan cookie dough bites taste like you are eating something super-indulgent, but in fact, are a healthy grab-and-go snack!

Recipe Tips and Common Questions
Here are some common questions I figured I’d get:
- Are these cookie dough bites safe to eat?
This recipe requires no eggs, so these bites are completely safe to eat raw!
- Why are my cookie dough bites not sticking together?
If your cookie dough bites aren’t sticking together, add a little more agave to the mixture. Oppositely, if the mixture is too thin, add a little more oats.
- Do these cookie dough bites give you energy?
Both almond butter and peanut butter are full of healthy fats, protein, and fiber. This helps keep your hunger in check and your energy levels up!
- Are these cookie dough bites healthy?
These protein bites are very nutrient-dense. They have natural sugars, healthy fats, protein, and fiber, making them a great healthy snack option!
- How to store the cookie dough bites?
I suggest storing these in an air-tight container in the pantry. This will allow the cookie dough to retain its gooey, melt-in-your-mouth texture. They will keep up to five days in a pantry. If you want to squeeze a little more life out of the cookie dough bites, you can store them in the refrigerator for up to two weeks or the freezer for a couple of months.
