Hello! I am looking to make these but can't eat oats and oat flour... What substitute would you recommend instead?
Hi Jazz! Thanks for reaching out! I would probably go with almond flour; however, I haven't tried it so I am not sure if the measurement would be exactly the same. You could try adding slightly less at first and if the dough isn't thick enough, you can then add more. Let me know if you give it a try and how it turns out. Hope you have a great weekend! 🙂
Those are some amazing cookies bites. There’s something about raw cookie bites, i can never get enough of it. Those chocolate cookie bites looks very tempting
Me too! Thanks Jo! 🙂
Oh goodness these look amazing! I'm all about these little snacks!! Loving the gluten free, vegan and refined sugar aspect ! I'm going to make these for the kids and they will love them!
Thanks so much, Amanda! 🙂
Not only do I want to try the almond butter bites, but I am actually also already eyeing up those chocolate ones you posted a picture of! LOVE me some healthy sweet snacks and I actually just got some almond butter from my favorite farmers market stall! This comes at the perfect time! Thanks for sharing
Thanks Kiki! Hope you enjoy! I can't wait until the warmer weather so I can get to our farmer's market too! 🙂
Easy no bake bites are my favorite treats. Thes sound so flavorful and texture is really soft and delicious. I must give these ball a try. These will be perfect for my kiddos school lunchbox for next week.
Thanks Natalie! Hope you enjoy! 🙂
Howwww do you have the restraint to not eat all of these at once?! I have restraint with most other desserts -- cookies, cakes, etc -- but when it comes to these sorts of no bake bites, I cannot stop at one. Or two. Or three. Or uh... sometimes, even four. I can't keep these in my kitchen or I'll eat them all! (I try to make them as healthy treats for my preschooler, but I wind up eating at least half of them, haha.)
lol 🙂 It's definitely hard not to eat them all! Thanks Julie!
Cookie dough! One of my favorite indulgent snacks. But your version is healthy, so why not enjoy some cookie dough bites 🙂
Yes! Thanks Analida! 🙂
So good! This is an awesome little sweet treat to have for the afternoon snack or after dinner craving. And oh man! We feel you on the flu! It was a doozy this year.
I don't even want to think about the flu anymore! Thanks so much, Lauren! 🙂
This winter has been horrible with the flu & sinus issues! But these bites add that little bit of comfort to sickly times! They look really yummy and are easy to make! That is a win!
Yes, it has been a doozy! These bites have definitely helped me through! 🙂 Thanks Denise!
These sound pretty healthy to me. I guess that means we can indulge right LOL?? I think my grandkids would love helping me make a batch...and I know they would devour them too.
lol 😉 Sounds good to me! Thanks Gloria! 🙂
Cookie dough bites are one of my favourite snacks! These look so fine and cute, I would inhale a whole lot in seconds 🙂 Plus, anything that is made in one bowl is a winner in my book! Glad your kids are feeling better now!
Thanks so much, Anna! Me too! It was a long week and now today we have a snow day. lol 🙂 Yay for one-bowl treats!
Here's something funny about me. I don't like raw cookie dough, but I go ga-ga over cookie dough bites like this one. These look so delicious and easy to make!! I want some asap!
