Crunchy, chewy, sweet and satisfying! These Chocolate Covered Cookie Dough Bites are completely vegan, oven-free, and absolutely delicious!

You can pretty much find these Chocolate Covered Cookie Dough Bites in my freezer at all times. I’ve been making them for seven years because they taste so good and they’re so simple to make.

The base of these Chocolate Covered Cookie Dough Bites are oats and peanut or almond  butter so they can be such a filling little snack to have whether you’re at home or taking a few to go. Oats have been cultivated for thousands of years but hardly appreciated for human consumption. In history’s past, oats were often considered “fit for barbarians” and were hardly consumed by the average human. Even today, close to 95% of commercially grown oats are for animal consumption.

We’re flipping the script with this one though! Oats are packed with protein and fiber and so is peanut butter and almond butter, so it’s safe to say your munchies will meet their match with this one. Let’s just say the chocolate on top is just a little treat for us all!

This recipe makes about 12 Chocolate Covered Cookie Dough Bites. I like to store leftovers in Tupperware in the freezer. I enjoy them frozen or sometimes I like to let them thaw out of the freezer for a couple hours to soften!

  1. Cover pitted dates with hot water and let soak for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat chocolate either in a double boiler or in microwave for 15 second intervals mixing in between. Once melted, add 1 tsp coconut oil to chocolate and mix. It should be silky smooth!
  3. Drain dates, then in a food processor or blender add the dates, nut butter, pinch of salt, 1 tbsp warm water, vanilla extract and blend until paste forms. You can add an extra tbsp of warm water if needed.
  4. Transfer mixture to a bowl and add oats and chia seeds. Then mix together. Place mixture in freezer for 10-15 minutes. Prepare a plate with parchment paper.
  5. Roll into a heaping tbsp sized balls. Then dip in chocolate. Use two forks to remove from chocolate and place on plate. Let them sit for 2 minutes before topping then top with flakey sea salt.
  6. Place in freezer for 10-15 minutes to harden and enjoy!
  7. I like to store left overs in a Tupperware in freezer. I enjoy them frozen or sometimes I like to let them thaw out of freezer for a couple hours to soften!
