These vegan cookie dough bites make a delicious, healthy snack. They’re gluten free, easy to make, and packed with healthy nutrients from sweet potatoes and peanut flour.


Units Scale
  • 1 medium sweet potato (peeled and cooked)
  • 1 cup gluten free oats (ground)
  • 1/4 cup refined coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup peanut flour
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp chia plus 3 tbsp water (soaked)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar or raw sugar
  • 1/4 cup non dairy milk of choice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 3 tablespoons water

Dark Chocolate Magic Shell Coating:

  • 4 oz dark chocolate or vegan chocolate chips
  • 1 oz refined coconut oil (liquid)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Peel your sweet potato and bake it or microwave it until it’s thoroughly cooked. Mash it all up and Set aside.
  3. Next, use a food processor to grind the oats until they are more like a flour or meal texture. Pour into a large bowl.
  4. Then make a chia egg. Combine chia seeds with water. Let it sit for 20 minutes or until a gel is formed.
  5. Combine everything but the chia egg into a large bowl or blender. Mix it up really well until a thick cookie dough-like batter is formed. Add in your chia egg and mix again.
  6. Roll batter into balls and place on baking sheet with parchment paper. Balls should be about the size of golf balls. Press them down gently so they have a flat bottom.
  7. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.

For the Dark Chocolate Magic Shell Coating

  1. Gently place a stainless steel or pyrex bowl on top of a pot of simmering (not boiling) water. Place chocolate in bowl and stirring occasionally, let the chocolate melt. (you can use a double boiler as well)
  2. Once it starts melting, add in the coconut oil and vanilla extract.
  3. Continue cooking on medium-low heat, stirring until everything is melted.
  4. Remove from heat and let it cool for 5 minutes.
  5. Dip your bites or balls into the melted chocolate, or drizzle chocolate on top.
  6. Place dough balls on a plate or cookie sheet in freezer for 30 minutes. Remove from freezer and sprinkle with extra peanut flour.
  7. You will have melted chocolate left over. (see notes on how to store it)


  • Don’t have a stove? You can make the magic shell in the microwave. Just keep reheating it 1 minute at a time until melted.
  • Want to make more magic shell and keep it for later? EASY –> You can store chocolate in glass jar in fridge until you want to use again. Just simply reheat.
