Oh it’s about to get real yummy up in here, folks. I am not totally down for descriptors like foodporn, foodgasm, and the like….but if I were ever to use those words, NOW would be the time.

I had a cookie craving recently and wanted to make something that was super easy to throw together yet still had the right amount of sweetness to satisfy my sweet tooth! At first I was thinking I’d go for the typical no bake raw energy bite or some sort of protein based bar. But for me, that felt like the easy way out! I wanted to do something I wasn’t already familiar with and break out of my baking comfort zone. So I came up with the following…

CHUNKY. MONKEY. COOKIE. BITES.

Now I know what you’re thinking, Chunk Monkey Cookie Dough Bites? What’s so adventurous about that? Well let me explain. I gave myself the challenge of making these VEGAN, GLUTEN-FREE, and REFINED SUGAR FREE! Of course, that wasn’t too much of a challenge with my favorite Bob’s Red Mill ingredients on hand.

  • ground flax seed

These cookie bites also make a PERFECT homemade holiday gift. Even though you may be apart from your friends and family this year, you can still connect with them and show them how much you care with home baked goods, from the heart. I am definitely paying it forward by sharing home baked gifts using Bob’s Red Mill products.

BONUS…YOU CAN EAT THE DOUGH. These cookies are fully vegan…so no raw eggs or dairy to worry about! Aside from that, these bites are doughy, sweet n’ salty, fully of melty chocolate goodness, and pretty darn good for ya too.

Healthy fats from the nut butter, whole grains from the oats, and lots of delicious points from the extra dark chocolate chips!

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350. In a food processor, blend together bananas, nut butter, vanilla, apple butter, and cinnamon.

In a separate bowl, combine oats, nuts, flaxseed, and coconut flour. Fold wet into dry ingredients and mix until combined. Stir in chocolate chips and mix until evenly distributed.

Using a tablespoon, scoop dough into 12-15 equally sized balls and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Use the back of a spoon to make sure they are uniform in size. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until tops are firm and slightly golden brown. Cool on a wire rack and store in the fridge.

  11. Um, drooling. Need these in my life.
    I’ve attempted making “energy balls” before but they were made with ground cashews and felt sooo heavy. Like, I almost couldn’t enjoy them because they were so dense. These look like the perfect solution to that problem!

    UGH!! These cookies were terrible! So dry and tasteless. I made them for a vegan cookie swap but they were so bad that I was embarrassed to go so I canceled.

    • Hi Leslie! I am so sorry you had a negative experience with this recipe. I’ve had a lot of people make these and really enjoy them. Did you make any changes to the recipe perchance? I’d love to help you troubleshoot what went wrong! 🙂
