I live in Southern California and during the summers, the temperature hits as high as 110 degrees Fahrenheit. So making these no-bake cookie dough bites paired with ice cream is perfect for this hot weather!
Tips & Procedures:
- Feel free to use maple syrup as a natural sweetener.
- Toast the raw flour before using it for this no-bake cookie dough bites recipe. Heating it up will eliminate any risk of bacteria.
- It’s important to sift the flour before toasting as it’s not yummy to eat lumps of flour.
- Feel free to substitute almond flour for all-purpose flour with a 1:1 ratio. You can also use coconut flour: 1 cup all-purpose flour = ¼-⅓ cup coconut flour.
- You may use vegan butter (or coconut oil), peanut butter, or almond butter in this recipe to help the bites bind together and if you want to make it extra creamy.
- Add more flavor and texture to the raw cookie dough ball by adding raisins, mini m&ms, or even walnuts!
- Storage: In an airtight container, the cookie dough can be stored for up to 3 days, longer if frozen.
How to Make Cookie Dough Bites:
Ingredients you will need:
In a large bowl add butter, brown sugar, granulated, and beat until light and fluffy
Add vanilla extract, salt, and mix until well combined:
Add the flour and mix well until all of the flour has been nicely incorporated:

Serve and enjoy!
Frequently Asked Questions:
These cookie dough bites are safe to be eaten raw for two reasons. The first reason is that the flour is heated to a safe temperature before being added to the dough. Secondly, this recipe doesn’t use a raw egg!
Look at it- if it has grown any mold or if it smells, then you can toss it in the trash. You will also notice that the edges start to discolor and turn darker as they go bad—they will likely be hard instead of doughy as well.
It can be baked for five minutes at 350 degrees.

Thank you for this! I love eating cookie dough, but since I am pregnant, I wanted to avoid eating raw eggs. But how wonderful! Now I can enjoy cookie dough because there are no eggs; yay!
ummm even if your Pregnant you can still eat raw eggs… Raw eggs give you protein for u and your baby lady you need to get an education because you are very stupid
You are wrong Luna, pregnant women can’t eat raw eggs it’s dangerous. Do you need go get some education….
You need to learn some basic grammar skills.
You don’t want to risk eating raw eggs while your pregnant…..it can give you and/or the baby salmonella
Mrs H C Wong says
Look the lady can eat whatever, it’s her risk (not saying that in some bad way) let’s all just enjoy these lovely cookies! BTW I’m 11😊
Mrs H C Wong says
Ignore the Mrs it’s my mum’s phone
Ever heard of a little thing called salmonela?
Luna you are very rude. There is no room here for your ignorant behavior. Shame on you.
Wtf? Luna, look in the mirror and tell yourself. you are rude. You know what I’m posting this! XD
No Luna YOU sound stupid, educate YOURSELF first before calling other people stupid. Pregnant woman CAN NOT eat raw eggs, or anything raw for that matter this includes sushi. There are a lot of things pregnant woman can’t eat. Go somewhere else with your uneducated self.
Raw eggs give you salmonella sooo that’s your risk
Sheesh why so mean? Doctors told me also when I was pregnant not to eat anything raw. Pasteurized eggs are ok. Check your facts before you go around calling people stupid. I pray for you.
Firstly, super yummy!
I’m excited as there are no raw eggs in it.
I think most people that are proficient in the kitchen are aware that raw eggs can contain salmonella, which can cause a serious case of food poisoning and possibly death.
Luna? Keep on eating those raw eggs! I’m not opposed to 1 less nasty person in the world 🙂
Elizabeth Gardner says
My goodness girls. Give it a rest. Like who really cares what each other eats. Everyone is responsible for what they say and do Happy eating . This is though rather entertaining.Cheers!!! EG
Luna That is very mean please stop

Gucci gang reply
I think you forgot to type about flour….it was used in the video
You forgot the Flour! Now I know why mine tasted not good at all!!
Oh no! I’m so sorry, I write my recipes late at night and I forget to proofread it, lesson learned. :/ I’ve added the flour, I hope you will make it again, because it’s delicious! 🙂
Yes, I just fixed it. I apologize, I write out the recipes late at night and I don’t always proof read it. Lesson learned. :/

Hi. I am a tween and I believe I am at an intermediate level (I make a lot of deserts for family gatherings, bake cookies for my neighbors every year, and some have asked to buy things from me), but I was wondering if you could do simple one severing or two recipes so you could quickly whip up something for you and a friend. I like your channel and LOVE this recipe( I halfed it so that I only made a few but regret that because they are SO good!). Keep doing what your doing. You inspire so many of my friends who have never made anything from scratch to actually bake things. Tell me which of your recipes I should try next!! 🙂
HI Sara! Thank you so much for your kind words! I appreciate it! Hope you can try out my other recipes! I have some new recipes coming out. 🙂
Btw I kinda have a stomach ache because I ate them all lol ( because I don’t have mini chocolate chips I found that you could make a oatmeal version). On the plus side my hand now smell really good! 🙂 thanks again for the great recipe!
haha! I’m glad you love them. Thank you also for sharing, Sara. Keep visiting my blog for more recipes and if you make them, please find me on IG or FB and tag me. 🙂
candy lover says
you never said what to do with the flour
Hi there! Please see the updated recipe card above, it’s in step 2. Thank you for visiting my blog. Please let me know how it goes if ever you try this. Enjoy!
How many servings does this recipe makes?
Makes a about 1 dozen and half. 🙂
Hi can I use brown sugar instead of granulated sugar
btw are you a half filipino? cos u look like one, and i saw your videos making our common foods we have here in the philippines hehe
Hi there! Of course, although it might be a little grainy. 🙂 I’m full Filipina. 🙂
I followed your instructions… I realized that you didn’t put the flour in the instructions so that’s why mine tasted like sand… It was terrible. Can i put flour in the last minute?
Hi Jenniffer, if you haven’t rolled the dough sure add it in. 🙂
btw can I use daricream buttermilk? It is soft
I can’t find any softened butter on our market
http://s528.photobucket.com/user/jpsquilla81/media/2012/November/file-128.jpg.html -this is the image of the butter
softened butter, is butter then softening it in the microwave. 🙂
Hey! I tried doing this but it was too moist! I tried adding flour but still a little too moist 🙁 Also, it was a bit yellow because I didn’t have any vanilla extract available.
However, I tried the no bake cheesecake recipe and it went so well!
P.S. First time baker/cook. Newbie at this, would appreciate easy and no bake recipe because we dont have any oven 🙁
Hi Belle, Oh no! When you softened the butter you didn’t melt it right?
Awesome, I”m so glad the no bake cheesecake turned out great! xx
Do you have to use a beater? Can you use a whisk for the whole thing? Ily
You don’t have to, but it will require a lot of elbow grease to mix. 🙂
How Many servings does the original recipe make
Hi there! Can I make these ahead and keep in fridge? I’m guessing bringing them to room temperature would be important for the taste.
Yes, you can but make sure you keep them well covered and don’t leave them in the fridge for too long because like any other food it can become stale. 🙂 sorry for the late reply!
I’m doing this for a project and I need to know how many this makes , can you please tell me ?
I’m so sorry for the late response! Did I respond in time?? It’s about dozen and half 1 inch balls. Hope that helped!
I made this but I used maple syrup as a substitute for vanilla extract and it came out runny so added more flour. It wasn’t all crumbly like yours was? Is that bad?
Hi Nani! Sorry for the late response! :/ Here’s the thing with this recipe since it has few ingredients it’s hard to substitute. If you were to replace the vanilla extract I suggest replace it with another extract like almond! (: Did it taste good at least with the maple syrup? Anywho, I hope this comment helps you!!! Let me know if you have anymore questions xx (: Happy baking!
Loved the video but unfortunately i didnt follow the recipe correctly and it ended in a disaster…
I’m going to try again very soon as now i know what to do and im really excited to see how they’re supposed to turn out!
Hi Isabel! Let me know what happened so I can be of help (: – really sorry about that 🙁 have a lovely day! xx
Beginning Baker says
Hey Lainey this week is teachers appreciation week and I need these to stay good till Wednesday how long do they last?
Hi! That’s a great question- I would say it will be fine if you keep it in the fridge. However, it is always better to make it a day in advance that way they taste is fresh (: Let me know how it goes! xx

Can you please answers I’m using this as a recipe I need to know how many servings it has on the original recipe
Hi Amber! Sorry for the late response. I made a dozen out of this batch. It depends on the size of the cookies that you want. 🙂
What if you don’t have butter? Could you replace it with olive oil?
Love your cookies dough bites because they are good and easy to clean😎
Um quick question how does the cookie dough taste without the chocolate chips?
Hi there, it tastes like cookie dough without the chocolate chips and it feels like it’s missing something. I hope this helps. 🙂
I tried your recipe and it tastes amazing. Although it tastes really good, when I eat it there is a crunch from the sugar that I put in. Did I do something wrong?
Hello there, you didn’t do something wrong, That’s how it’s supposed to taste like. Thank you for trying out this recipe. Please keep on visiting my blog for more amazing recipes. 🙂
Great recipe! Keep it up!
Thank you so much for your kind words, Bonnie! I am glad you loved this recipe!
Quick question do you have to use the salt?
Hi there! Yes, salt is important as it brings out the natural sweetness of the recipe. Hope you love this recipe!
This was an excellent recipe. What a great treat to add to your ice cream or just by itself. So simple to make. Made this for myself since I have a terrible sweat tooth and now I can’t wait to make this for my nieces and nephews for the next family gathering. Thanks for the recipe and for sharing!!
Hi Lisa, thanks so much for trying out this recipe. Try other recipes also, they are great, too! 🙂
Love this recipe!!! I have 8 boys and this is a keeper for sure! Thank you!
Yay!! I’m glad you like this recipe . You’re welcome, Michelle. 🙂
Sugar Rush says
I think Luna is a child playing on the computer lol
Ya could of put add peanut butter on the video cause mine got super crummy till i found out you could add the peanut butter🙄🙄 think smarter next time.
how do you store this
Hey there, I store this in an airtight container and in the fridge. 🙂
I think this seems super easy, and so I was up for it! My siblings loved it, and it was our little dessert for while I was babysitting! These are great because, in the other recipes, you have to bake/toast the flour? And I think that’s kinda annoying! I also like how these don’t have eggs! I would definiently recommend this! thanks!
Thank you so much for your appreciation, Kyla! Keep visiting blog for many more recipes. 🙂
Thank you! I appreciate it. I hope you can try my other recipes. Enjoy baking!
I made this recipe as written, but my dough was very dry, like sand. I was unable to roll these into balls.
Hi there, please watch my tutorial video. Here’s the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PwvSxX9E2ms&t=16s
I hope this helps. Please let me know how it goes!
I’m 9 years old and I kinda wanted to make a simple but tasty snack for my mom to surprise her. But we don’t have chocolate chips at home, what can I use as a substitute, Lainey?
Hi Eva, you may add mini M&Ms to this recipe. You can also cut available chocolate bars into small sizes for this. Please let me know how it goes. Thank you for visiting my blog. Enjoy!
Do I heat the flour up in the oven or microwave?
Hi Layla, I haven’t tried it because I just toasted the flour in a nonstick pan. You can try in the oven and please let me know how it goes. Thank you for dropping by!
delicious! I made them very small and added them to my homemade ice cream.
Hi Max, thank you for making this recipe. I appreciate it! It’s good to know also that you like this.
