Clean Eating Cookie Dough Recipe

Author: Amanda Le
Serves: 16-20 balls
  • 2 cups gluten-free rolled oats
  • 10 medjool dates
  • 5 tablespoons water
  • 3 tablespoons shredded coconut
  • 2 tablespoons cacao nibs (or vegan chocolate chips)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch sea salt to taste
  1. Blend oats in a high speed blender or food processor until you get a fine consistency like flour.
  2. Add in shredded coconut and and vanilla process.
  3. Slowly add in dates and water. If using a vitamix, you may have to do this in 2 batches!
  4. Fold cacao nibs into the dough.
  5. Scoop out mixture, roll into balls and store in refrigerator or freezer!
If you’re not using fresh soft dates, soak them in warm water for at least an hour before.
Replace 1 cup of rolled oats for cashews or replace ½ cup rolled oats for almond butter for more of a cookie dough taste.

  1. This may be a dumb question, but did you form them into cookies and then freeze them? Or did you just freeze the mix and eat it as a cookie dough type thing? Thanks!

    1. I am actually not sure because my container just said ‘one scoop’ in the serving size. But it looked like half a cup.

  2. Hi Priscilla,
    I can’t wait to try these cookies but we have nut allergies in our home. What can I substitute for the peanut butter? Or can it be omitted entirely? Thanks

    1. hmm. Let me think, peanut butter is the main ingredient in it because it holds everything together. You could try another kind of butter, almond (unless you are allergic as well), or coconut butter, hazelnut butter, anything with that sort of consistency will do. And since you are taking out some flavor you could add a few drops of vanilla so enhance the cookie flavor.

      1. If you look in your healthfood isle of your supermarket (or a health food store) you can buy seed butters/spreads. Great option for those who can’t have nut spreads 🙂

    2. Sunbutter! The texture is the same and it doesn’t taste much different. Most grocery stores (and target) carry it now.

    3. You can use sunflower seed butter! I am also allergic and i found sunflower seed butter tastes the most like peanut butter!

      1. Is there anything that you can use to replace the dates? I have an aversion to dried pitted fruits (dates, apricots, raisins, etc). Thanks!

  3. Is this paleo? Because peanuts are not ok in the paleo diet because they’re legumes..unless I’m wrong. And the milk?

    1. Aside from answering your own question about Paleo; it’s not even a clean recipe if you choose to use any of the suggested chocolate powders because a: of the added sugar content, and b: I’m unfamiliar with the others, but Ovaltine – being a malted drink – has grain content, specifically gluten. Using plain, additive free cocoa powder would be a vast improvement.

  4. Is it necessary to use protein powder in this? I don’t have any but this looks like the easiest cookie dough recipe and I’m really craving LOL… is there anything I could sub?

  5. I doubled this recipe adding 1 scoop vanilla whey and 1 scoop chocolate whey instead of the coco powder and chocolate chips. Separated into four containers and froze. Husband and I absolutely love it! It takes care of the sweet tooth while high in protein. Great recipe. Thanks for sharing.

  6. I just made this with my protein powder and I don’t think it was enough powder. My scoop is 34 grams and it was really runny, good but not doughy enough I guess! Thanks…it’s a decent substitute for the real cookie dough.

  7. They sound delicious! My grandpa has cancer for the fourth time and I was looking around for a really good cookie recipe with high protein. I’m wanting to use your recipe… I am going to use your recipe but I was wondering would I be able to bake them? I know it’s a no bake but I’m not sure of my grandpa would want to eat just cookie dough.

    1. they are no bake. whole foods has a very healthy cookie dough that is edible raw and can be baked 🙂 i recommend it very much.
