My Edible Cookie Dough is one of my favorite recipes, and has been so popular that I decided to make one designed for the road to fuel my energy. These energy balls are perfect for that. No more hangry moments when I’m out and about. One of these fills me up quickly and leaves me satisfied for a few hours. If you’re looking for a healthier version of cookie dough that doesn’t involve almond or coconut flour, try my Healthy Vegan Cookie Dough!
This recipe has the option of using either almond flour, coconut flour, or a 1:1 combination of both. I definitely prefer the taste with almond flour, but coconut flour is significantly less expensive. It’s completely up to you how you want to make this.

Vegan Cookie Dough Energy Balls (Vegan, Gluten Free, Oil Free):
- 2/3 scant cup peanut butter* unsalted
- 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup coconut or almond flour
- 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1/4 cup vegan chocolate chips
First, decide if you’ll be using coconut flour, almond flour, or a combination of the two. Almond flour will taste better, but coconut flour is significantly less expensive.
Cream together the peanut butter, pure vanilla extract, and maple syrup using either an electric handheld mixer or a stand mixer (this will work if mixed with a spoon, too, you will just need a little extra stirring).
Add in the flour and salt and mix until combined.
Add in the vegan chocolate chips and mix until just combined.
Roll into 1” balls.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
*The peanut butter is replaceable with almond butter (or any nut butter or your choice).
