Who doesn’t like cookie dough? No one? That’s what I thought.
What is not to like about cookie dough?
Well, except the fact that they can make you sick because of the raw eggs… but besides that? What’s not to like?
This recipe is perfect then because there are no raw eggs to make you sick!
Have you tried Cookie Butter yet? It’s also called Biscoff. It’s my favorite new thing.
So I saw this recipe on Averie Cooks for peanut butter and chocolate cookie dough bites and I thought how yummy! I love peanut butter and chocolate and no bake things for the summer! This will be great.
I walked into the pantry to get the peanut butter and my eyes fell on the Cookie Butter.
And these were born.
Oh. My. Goodness.
Yeah, that one with the big glop of chocolate at the front is all mine.
So easy. So yummy. No raw eggs to worry about. Just Cookie Dough.
Then with the drizzled chocolate on them? Fuhgetaboutit.
Make these the next time instead of cookies. They’re much easier (No Bake!) and everyone loves cookie dough.
Double the recipe to keep some for yourself. They freeze great.
Cookie Butter Cookie Dough Bites

This small recipe makes about 12 larger or 16 smaller balls. Double and triple as needed.
- 1/4 cup cookie butter (or Biscoff)
- 1/8 cup butter (2 Tablespoons)
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 Tablespoon white sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 cup oats (old fashioned or quick cook)
- 1/4 cup all purpose flour
- pinch salt, optional
- 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips (regular are also fine)
- 2 Tablespoons chocolate chips or chocolate bar, melted, for drizzling
In a small bowl, whip the cookie butter and butter until creamy. It’s easy to do this by hand, but use your hand mixer if you want. Add the sugars and whip until creamy. Add vanilla, salt, oats, and flour and stir until combined. Add the flour slowly to make sure you don’t need less than the recipe calls for.
At this point, the dough should be easy to work with and to form into balls. Get in there and use your hands! However, if the dough is too dry or crumbly, add more cookie butter as needed. Conversely, if it’s too wet or sticky, add more oats or flour, or try chilling for 20 minutes or so. This should make the dough easier to handle.
Once the dough is the correct consistency, fold in the chocolate chips and start forming into balls.
After the balls are formed, drizzle with the melted chocolate. It might be helpful to blast chill the dough in the freezer for 20 minutes before drizzling, this way the chocolate hardens on contact.
Keeps in the fridge for weeks or the freezer for many months.
That way it’s always handy for those “I gotta have cookie dough!” cravings.
