Do you ever stop your kids from licking the spoon when you make cookies?
You know… with the whole raw egg and salmonella thing. I know I do.
One of the best parts of making cookies is tasting the dough, right? These Raw Cookie Dough Bites from The Nourishing Home are an easy way to do just that, without the worry of raw eggs or heating up the oven.
With wholesome ingredients like coconut flour, ground flax and nut butters you can feel good about making these for an after school snack or as a sweet addition to your kids’ lunch boxes.
Raw Cookie Dough Bites
These Raw Cookie Dough Bites are a great after school snack or as a sweet addition to your kids’ lunch boxes.

- ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon raw honey or maple syrup

- ¼ teaspoon sea salt
- ¼ cup dark chocolate chips or carob chips
- In a large bowl, mix together the nut butter, honey (or maple syrup) and vanilla until creamy and well blended.
- To the mixture, add the coconut flour, ground flax seed, and sea salt. With a wooden spoon, mix to combine.

So easy and delicious. One-bowl-goodness right here.
My son is the pickiest eater I have ever met. It is so hard to get him to eat healthy! We both love raw chocolate chip cookie dough, but when I make it I end up eating too much. I wanted a healthier, lighter alternative I didn’t have to feel guilty for eating or letting him eat. When I first tried this I thought it would be a miracle if he liked it. He doesn’t even like peanut butter! But he did and they have become a staple treat at our home. He begs me to make these for him. Thank you so much!
I’m SO glad these were a hit with your picky eater! I know how hard it can be to get kids to try new foods and I am glad you gave the recipe a chance. In case you are interested, here are 10 strategies I”ve learned from specialists that have helped me with my picky eaters..
Made these tonight for dessert and they were a huge hit. I added one packet of Splenda to make it a little sweeter but they were awesome. My boyfriend told me to make them again!
Thank you so much for sharing!
Awesome! Glad you both loved them :)
I’m a cancer patient and can’t have much sugar but of course I crave it all the time, so this recipe was perfect. Thank you for the recipe!
I am so glad you enjoyed these Grace! here is to a speedy recovery.
made these right now.. was soo yummy to eat in the bowl LOL. I had the kids and I lick the bowl clean :)
I made these and they’re delicious! I will admit that I used 1 TBSP of brown sugar in place of the extra TBSP of honey and 1/4 tsp of baking soda. That might sound strange but it made them taste more like cookie dough. I only had roasted almond butter so mine aren’t raw but still healthy (in my opinion and compared to real cookie dough!) and soooo good!!
Glad you loved them!
Any idea on the shelf-life for these? Do they need to kept refrigerated? Thanks!
1 week in the fridge.
Any alternatives for someone allergic to cocnut and almonds?
unfortunately, I’ve only tried these with coconut flour and almond flour. some subscribers have said that they make them with oat flour.
I’ve read that the salmonella from raw cookie dough is actually from the raw flour rather than the eggs. Is coconut flour safe to eat raw? And what is the textural difference between using coconut flour versus the almond flour? Is almond flour more fine? And last question – does the coconut flour taste like coconut?

This is a late response, but in case someone views this page again sometime soon, I’ll respond for the author:
1. Coconut flour is just ground-up coconut. It’s safe to eat raw.
2. If they’re finely ground, there should be no difference in texture.
3. Yes, it tastes like coconut, since it’s literally ground-up coconut.
I hope this helps.

These look so yummy! And I like that they’re healthier too! Where can you buy coconut flour? At Whole Foods also?
These look SO yummy! A feel-good snack is a must around here! :)
Sounds awesome!!! I want these in my belly. Do you have to use coconut flour, or is that just for our gluten-free friends?
Personally, I’ve only made them with coconut flour. My neighbor uses Almond flour. Not just because it’s gf, it’s definitely a texture thing. You can find almond flour at whole foods in bulk.
I just made them with oatmeal flour and they were very good!
So glad you liked them April!
