Edible Cookie Dough

Ingredients for the recipe

To make homemade cookie dough truffles, you need chocolate chips, oat flour or protein powder, pure vanilla extract, oil or nut butter, sweetener of choice, a little salt to heighten the flavor, and chickpeas or white beans.

Unlike many other cookie dough truffle recipes, this one calls for no sweetened condensed milk, butter, or shortening.

Superfood chickpeas, also called garbanzo beans, make up the base of the recipe. Cannellini beans (white kidney beans), great northern beans, or other white beans work just as well. You can use either cooked or canned beans.

If you experiment with black beans, lentils, pinto beans, or something else instead of beans, be sure to report back with your results. A keto option is also included.

For the best cookie dough truffles, we recommend going with either the oat flour option or a protein powder you have used in the past and already know you like. Our favorite is unsweetened pea protein powder.

Or you can make your own oat flour by blending rolled oats or quick oats in a food processor until a fine flour texture forms.

My personal favorite options are either coconut oil or peanut butter. (Chocolate peanut butter cookie dough truffles? Yes, please.) You can substitute vegetable or canola oil, almond butter, cashew butter, nut free sunflower butter, or Coconut Butter.

Have fun and change up the flavor by stirring in a handful of mini chocolate chips, shredded coconut, chia seeds, chopped dark chocolate, or finely diced walnuts or pecans. Or add mini M&Ms to create monster cookie dough truffles.

You can also swap the nut butter for Homemade Nutella

How to make chocolate chip cookie dough truffles

Drain and rinse the chickpeas or white beans very well. This important step will remove any bean aftertaste in the finished product.

Add all ingredients except the chocolate chips and optional coating to a high quality food processor. Blend until the mixture achieves a smooth cookie dough texture.

Note: A high speed blender with a tamper will technically work, but the texture of these chocolate covered cookie dough candies is much better if you use a food processor.

Turn off the machine, and stir in the chocolate chips with a spoon. Then form the dough into balls or truffle shapes by using a spoon or a mini cookie scoop.

Place the cookie dough balls on a plate lined with wax paper or parchment paper.

You may enjoy the bite sized cookie dough treats now, or refrigerate them while you prepare the optional chocolate coating recipe below.

Feel free to eat the truffles plain, or follow the steps below to coat them in chocolate.

The easiest way to make your own chocolate dipped cookie dough truffles is to carefully melt six ounces of chocolate chips (or white chocolate chips) in a microwave or by using the double boiler method.

Once melted, I like to then stir in an optional two teaspoons of coconut or vegetable oil for a smoother sauce. Dip each cookie dough bite into the chocolate sauce.

Place the chocolate coated truffles on a parchment lined plate, and let the chocolate coating set.

If you prefer a refined sugar free chocolate shell, stir together three tablespoons each of pure maple syrup, cocoa powder or raw cacao powder, and warm coconut oil. Dip the chocolate chip cookie dough bites in the sauce.

Refrigerate or freeze to set.

Tips for storing and serving

The recipe can be left out in a cool environment for a few hours. And the cookie dough bites are easy to transport, making them ideal for parties.

Bring the truffles to your next family event, birthday party, book club, or Christmas cookie exchange, and watch how quickly they disappear.

You can even press them into Easter egg shapes for a festive holiday treat that everyone will love. The truffles are wonderful gifts for friends and family.

To prevent the outer chocolate shell from melting, we recommend against serving the cookie truffles at outdoor summer gatherings.

If you are an ice cream lover, stir chopped cookie dough truffles into vanilla ice cream or Banana Ice Cream for DIY cookie dough ice cream. Vegans, try Coconut Ice Cream.

And if you happen to find yourself with leftovers, store them in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to five days. Or place the chocolate covered treats in an airtight covered container and freeze for up to about two or three months.

Or better yet, send any leftover chocolates to me!
