9 Healthy Cookie Dough Balls

I am on an organizational kick.  I finally sorted the stack of papers on my desk, uncovered my dresser from the weekend race clutter, and switched out L’s snug clothes for the next size up.  It’s time to get recipes organized, too!

It makes my life so much easier to have lots of recipes in one place, and I hope it’s helpful for you as well.  Last week, I featured 24 delicious pancake recipes, and this week I’m going to round up my scattered cookie dough ball recipes.

This is a combination of no-bake and baked cookies, some with no added sweetener, some with no grains, and one with butter and sugar for good measure.  Ready?


No Bake Nut-Fruit Balls


Date-nut Ball (with a chocolate variation)

Coconut Date “Mound” Ball

Date-cashew balls and Chocolate Date-walnut balls


No Bake Peanut or Almond Butter Balls


PB-Oat Balls

Coconut Brownie Bites

Coconut Brownie Bites


Chickpea “Cookie Dough” Balls


Chickpea Chocolate Chip Dough Balls

Double Chocolate Chickpea Dough Balls

Chickpea cookie dough/ Double Chocolate cookie dough balls


Pumpkin Cookie Balls

Pumpkin Pb Raisin Balls

Pumpkin Banana Oat Balls

Pumpkin Pb Raisin balls


Healthified Cookie Dough


Chocolate Chip Sunflower Cookie Dough Balls (traditional cookie with less butter and sugar)

Chocolate Chip Sunflower Cookie Dough Balls


For toddlers, I love the PB Oat balls, Date-nut balls (watch out- chopping nuts in the food processor is noisy!), or the Pumpkin Banana Oat balls.  These are mostly naturally sweetened (the pb-oat balls have a little bit of honey) and are portable and delicious.

Finally, if you’re not up for making your own, I highly recommend Lindsay’s Healthy Bites.  She has four flavors: Peach/Apricot/Apple Cinnamon; Whey Good; Apricot/Coconut Fig; and Cookie Dough.  You can order them here!

I’m linking up again with Peas and Crayons and Munchkin Meals to see what everyone else is eating.  What is your favorite healthy treat? How often do you take time to get organized?

  1. Oh those look good! I have had Lindsay’s healthy bites and have another order on the way b/c I just loved them. You are inspiring me to give these a try, though!

  2. We’ve been forced into organizing the whole house because we moved our son into his new room, which means we can move our daughter out of our room! But it also means we have to make room for a whole lot of stuff. Maybe I should make some of these balls to help us 🙂

  3. I’ve been on a serious organization kick. Which means we have random piles all throughout the house, because heaven forbid I finish one project before starting a new one.

    Sorry I’ve been MIA in your comments lately. I’ve been reading your posts on my phone, but haven’t spend to much time on the actual computer commenting. Hang in there with the big girl bed transition. You two will get it down soon, I promise! 🙂

    • I do the same thing with the piles! It drives my husband nuts… he loves to have everything put away, but I need to see it to remember what needs to be done.
      Thanks for the toddler bed encouragement… it’s getting easier.

  13. No bake is king…these look amazing!

    I did a round-up of all my scattered recipes about 9 years ago, when my son was a baby. It was a TON of work but well worth the effort. Although nearly a decade later, this post is kind of inspiring me to do a refresh. Believe it or not, I have NOT made all the recipes that I have collected over the years…:)

  14. I’ve recently learned I need to avoid gluten and oats. So far, I haven’t found it a problem unless I try to replace my previous wheat items with other products. It seems easier to just not look for replacements. Except for Christmas cookies, I would like one good recipe. I will be checking each of yours out and see if they can be altered. Thanks for the post. Enjoy your SITS Day.

    the frame and then the screen material itself. Use Homasote boards
