What You Need

The ingredient list for these bites is short, sweet, and simple! Here’s what you need:

  • ground oat flour
  • all-natural peanut butter
  • maple syrup
  • vanilla extract
  • dairy-free chocolate chips
  • sea salt

Ingredient Swaps

  • Nut butter: any nut butter works for this recipe! Just make sure it’s all-natural and “drippy” so that you can mix it easily.
  • Sweetener: While maple syrup is our #1 choice to get that cookie dough flavor, you can also use honey, which is not vegan.
  • Flour: We haven’t tested any other flours, but are confident that white whole wheat all-purpose flour, and gluten-free all-purpose flour will work similarly.

Here are a few tips to keep in mind while you’re rolling out the dough for your cookie dough!

Too Thin/Thick?

Sometimes your batter can turn out a little thick and crumble and sometimes it can turn out a little too wet. This is 100% normal because the oil content in nut butters vary so much.

  • To thin: add a little bit of water by the half teaspoon.
  • To thicken: add oat flour by the half teaspoon.

Best kind of nut butter

If there is one thing you’re particular about when it comes to this vegan cookie dough recipe, it should be your nut butter!

Make sure that you find a peanut butter that is creamy, all-natural, and drippy. This means you should be able to stir it easily and it will drip off a spoon.

Storage Recommendations

For best results, we recommend storing your vegan cookie dough bites in the freezer or refrigerator.

Place cookie dough bites into a plastic bag or Stasher bag and remove as much air as possible. Store in the freezer for up to 3 months.

  • 1/2 cup all-natural creamy peanut butter, drippy (any kind of nut butter works)
  • 6 tablespoons ground oat flour
  • 3.5 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup dairy-free mini chocolate chips
  • Pinch of sea salt


  • Place all of the ingredients into a medium bowl and mix to combine. The texture should be very similar to classic cookie dough. If it’s too thick, add a little water by the 1/2 teaspoon. If it’s too thin, add a more oat flour by the 1/2 teaspoon.
  • Place a piece of parchment paper onto your countertop. Then, roll the dough into a ball and then place it on top of the parchment paper.
  • Flour a rolling pin with oat flour and then roll the dough into a 1/4-inch thick slab. Optionally sprinkle the dough with sea salt.
  • Place the rolled out cookie dough into your fridge to let set for 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove from the fridge and use a sharp knife to cut cookie dough into 1/4-inch squares.
  • Store cookie dough in the freezer.

The prices I price quote below, are simply beginning prices and the total price, worldwide or domestic,
will certainly depend on weight and distance.

Made some modifications based on what I had on hand (almond meal instead of oat flour; 70% baker’s chocolate for the coating; no chocolate chips) and they were still delicious. Gotta love a recipe even I can’t screw up! My only ‘complaint’ is that they just don’t last long enough 😉

Hi! Just wondering what would be a old substitute for the almond butter as I have a nut allergy 🙂

The 122 calories are for the whole recipe or for just one serving?

I found yours and I would like to ask you please,, I live in Greece,Europe, here the maple suryp is pretty expensive. if i don’t include it in the recipe will there be a big difference in the taste of the cookie?? thank u!

DELICIOUS! Just made these tonight for an after-dinner treat! It’s so hard not to eat the entire batch! Can’t wait to try it out with some banana soft serve. I’m new to your website and I’m already in love! Looks like you found yourself a new subscriber! 🙂

First things first: YUM! I saw this post and had to make it right away. I made a few substitutions because I didn’t have all of the ingredients listed, but they still turned out fabulous! I swapped whole wheat flour for the ground oat flour, natural peanut butter for almond butter, and honey for the maple syrup. I’m definitely going to have to hide these in the freezer so my roommates don’t eat them! 😀 Thanks for the recipe!

As for my favorite disney show, Lizzie McGuire was definitely it for me!
