If you’re craving something sinful, there is always a healthier alternative to satisfy your craving. These Vegan Cookie Dough Bites are made with cashews and oats and don’t contain any refined sugar, butter, or eggs. Just 100% plant based ingredients that not only satisfy your sweet tooth, but provide nutrients and energy as well!

I posted a picture of the dough on Instagram last week and promised a recipe by the “next week.” Well ladies and gentlemen, that did not happen. You see, I loved it so much that I ate the entire bowl before I could even photograph it! Actually, I didn’t even roll it into bites at that point!!! It was just one of those days, and healthy vegan cookie dough solved all of my problems, haha. As promised, here’s the recipe!

  1. What sort of flour could I use to make it gluten free that you’d recommend?

    • Cat, I am gluten-free as well. I made these bites last night, but used Betty Crocker’s gluten free rice flour mix versus using the whole wheat flour. And the bites were deliscious! Hope that helps.

  3. I’m currently on the hunt for vegan recipes I can pass over on my family during the holidays without them knowing. This just may make the cut. I mean, who doesn’t like cookie dough. Yum!

  4. I made these last night and they are SO DELISH! I was able to make 10 bites out of the batch I made — not sure if my “bites” were smaller than yours or if I measured wrong. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

  5. I am literally eating these now as I type! Awesome!! Even my husband liked them, and he is afraid of the word vegan. I used coconut flour and they turned out great!!

  7. Hey! Allergic to cashews, would almonds or peanuts work?

  8. Holy cow! How awesome! I had to put these in the fridge so I wouldn’t scarf them all down at once :)Swapped the cashews for almonds and will be making this again soon.

  9. Thanks for the recipe. I made this recipe one Sunday night when I craved cookie dough. To make it gluten free I used ground-flax instead of the wheat flour. It turned out okay. Any other suggestions for a gluten free option.
