We love sweet things in our house. It’s just the way it is so why try to deny it. When possible, I love to include sweet potatoes in sweet recipes since they impart a natural and delicate sweetness, plus tons of other nutrients.

How to Involve Kids In This Healthy Vegan Cookie Dough
I feel that it’s important that I mention this is a vegan edible cookie dough recipe, so yes, you can eat the dough. Food safety is important here!
I know my child eats the dough for any cookie I’m making, so keeping it vegan is necessary sometimes to avoid any risk of foodborne illness.
I have several sweet potato recipes for kids on the blog, and this one is no different. It makes for a great sweet potato snack for toddlers and older kids!
The rolling part can get a little messy (see the FAQs and tips below), but letting your child scoop the dough onto a baking sheet to freeze is a nice way to involve them.
If you have a child who loves snacking after dinner (like us), these also make for a great evening snack for kids.
FAQs and Tips for Frozen Cookie Dough Bites
- The Dough is Sticky, How Can I Make it Easier to Roll? Yes, the cookie dough will be sticky since it’s basically a hummus-type dip. What I’ve found to help is grinding some oats (into an oat flour) and wiping that on my hands before rolling. I also use a cookie dough scooper to place on the baking sheet.
- How To Store Frozen Cookie Dough Bites – Obviously, store them in the freezer. After rolling, I like to keep them flat on a baking sheet for a few hours. Once they’re frozen, I’ll transfer them to a ziplock bag and keep them in that.
- How Long Can You Store These Frozen Cookie Dough Bites? Up to 3 months, but judiciously speaking, I’d say a month at most. I like to store them in a freezer friendly ziplock or thesestasher bags.
- Do I Need to Thaw Them Before Eating? No, just enjoy them frozen! I mean…I guess you could let them get to room temperature? But we always just eat them frozen. With extra peanut butter on top 🙂
