Cookie Dough Truffles (Vegan, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free)

Cookie Dough Truffles

Is there anything better in this world than chocolate chip cookie dough? I mean, maybe that’s an exaggeration, but seriously, cookie dough is truly one of the most amazing things ever!

My love for all things cookie dough runs deep. I made these healthy cookie dough bites years ago and they are still a pretty popular recipe on the blog. I wanted to make something a bit more decadent and these cookie dough truffles are SO good.

These bites are also gluten-free and can easily be made to be dairy-free or vegan depending on the type of chocolate you use. Enjoy Life brand is good as a vegan option. I personally like to coat them in melted dark chocolate! I wouldn’t necessarily say these are super light and healthy, but they are a certainly a lot healthier than regular cookie dough as they do not contain any butter or sugars and are sweetened with maple syrup.

These bites do not contain any raw egg which makes them perfectly safe for snacking on. I do recommend storing these in the fridge as it keeps them fresher and they hold together better. I love keeping a batch of these in the fridge for a quick treat after dinner!

Prep Time 20 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup refined coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (use dairy-free for vegan)

For the chocolate coating:

  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips (or dairy-free or paleo-friendly) chocolate
  • 2 teaspoons refined coconut oil

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl, add the almond flour, syrup, melted coconut oil, and vanilla until combined. Fold in the mini chocolate chips. Use a small cookie scoop or take about 1 heaping tablespoon of the dough and form into balls. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Place the formed balls in the freezer for about 10 minutes.
  2. To make the topping, in a microwave-safe bowl, add the chocolate and coconut oil. Heat in 30 second increments, stirring in between each until the chocolate is smooth and melted. Alternatively, you can melt the chocolate over a double broiler.
  3. Remove the cookie dough balls from the freezer. Stick a toothpick in a cookie dough ball, and then dip into the melted chocolate until covered. Carefully shake off excess and place back onto the cookie sheet to firm up. If desired, you can top each truffle with more chocolate chips, sprinkles, chopped nuts, melted chocolate, coconut, etc. Let the bites firm up on the counter or stick in the freezer for another 5-10 minutes. Store leftover truffles in the fridge in an airtight container.
