No Bake Cookie Dough Bites (To Freeze!)

Delicious no bake cookie dough bites blend sweet potatoes, garbanzo beans, peanut butter and maple syrup for the best homemade cookie dough bites that you freeze! Just take them out of the freezer and enjoy these cookie dough frozen bites!

We love sweet things in our house and frozen chocolate chip cookie dough balls are no different.

When possible, I love to include sweet potatoes in sweet recipes since they impart a natural and delicate sweetness, plus tons of other nutrients. 

A natural addition to these vegan cookie dough bites.

And to my surprise, I don’t have any frozen sweet potato recipes on my blog, until now (although I have definitely frozen these sweet potato chocolate chip cookies) with these sweet potato no bake cookie dough bites. 

This edible frozen cookie dough bites recipe is a continuation of my favorite vegan edible cookie dough – just frozen and in bite size.

Think about it – these vegan cookie dough bites can be on your list of healthy freezable snacks for summer, along with these creamy coconut popsicles.

A great option as a freezer snack for kids or to add to a freezable meal for toddlers.

Another breakfast option we love is this chocolate chip cookie dough overnight oats

The best part about making these sweet potato cookie dough bites is that you probably have most of these ingredients in your pantry already. They all make the list for my top pantry staples.

And I can’t think of anything better than making raw vegan cookie dough balls with them.

All of these ingredients are healthy and filling, which is why this cookie dough bites recipe is perfect for easy road trip snacks

All you’ll need to do for these vegan cookie dough balls is combine all of the ingredients in a food processor or high speed blender

I usually have leftover cooked sweet potato, but if you don’t, you can microwave it for 5-7 minutes, and then let it cool.

Then, you’ll just add the mashed sweet potatoes to the other ingredients in the blender. You can taste as you go – Remember, these cookie dough bites are no bake!

Then, roll dough into small bites and place on a baking sheet or flat surface and place in the freezer.

After 45 minutes to an hour, they should be frozen and you can just grab a bite and enjoy.

How to Involve Kids

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 love to let Camryn help and blend the ingredients in our food processor. Then, she’ll add in the chocolate chips (after taking several bites, naturally). 

Toddlers and kids will all love these frozen cookie dough bites.

I have several other sweet potato recipes for kids on the blog, and most of them are very kid friendly.

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

How to store no bake cookie dough bites

Store these no bake cookie dough bites in the freezer. After rolling, I like to keep them flat on a baking sheet for a few hours. Then, once frozen, transfer to a ziploack bag or stasher bags. Store for up to 3 months!

Do I need to thaw before eating?

Nope! Just enjoy them frozen on a hot day. You could always let them warm up to room temperature, but they will be very soft and mushy.

The Dough is Sticky, How Can I Make it Easier to Roll?

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.

  1. Your nutritional count is confusing for the carbohydrate count. Does it mean there are 11 grams of fiber and 6 grams of carbohydrate? I’m a Type 1 diabetic and need to know for bolusing purposes. Thanks!
