Course: Dessert, Snack
Cuisine: American
Diet: Diabetic, Gluten Free, Vegan
Servings: 30 bites/balls
Carbohydrates: 9g


  • 1 1/2 cups oats
  • 1 cup almond flour*
  • 1 can low sodium garbanzo beans rinsed and drained
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips


  • Add the oats and almond flour to the bowl of a large food processor with the s-blade inserted.
  • Process until a fine powder is formed (about 60 seconds).
  • Add all of the remaining ingredients, except the chocolate chips and process until smooth and a batter has formed. It will look almost exactly look cookie dough at this point. (You may need to stop the food processor about half way through to scrape down the sides of the bowl. If the mixture appears too dry, add 1-2 Tbsp water.)
  • Carefully transfer the mixture to a bowl and stir in the chocolate chips by hand.
  • Using a cookie scoop, or Tbsp measure, roll the dough into balls, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Enjoy!
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.


*The almond flour helps to lower the glycemic index of these treats… meaning it causes less of a spike in blood sugars for people with diabetes. If you don’t have any almond flour at home, or don’t need to worry about making them diabetes-friendly, you can easily sub an additional 1 – 1 1/4 cup of oats for the almond flour.

    So delicious & easy to make! It was also a forgiving recipe for me as I was low on oats, so I “packed” the almond flour and they came out perfect. Being 20 weeks pregnant, it’s nice to have a safe, edible cookie dough to get me through cravings!

    Love these guilt free (well not if you eat as many as I do in one sitting, I suppose ☺️) cookie dough bites!! So yummy!! I make a few without chocolate chips for my 9 month old who loooves them!!

      So easy, nutritious, and yummy! Very satisfying too. I used a blend of xylitol and erythritol with 2 tbsp maple syrup and all oats. Makes each of 30 chunks (I patted my dough out and cut chunks) 1 SP on Blue WW! 2 for 3 pts. Great base for trying new flavors! Thanks so much for this recipe.

    These are the perfect mix! Just enough sweet with the chocolate chips to please even this chocaholic and my picky kids! ☺️

    I’m eating one right now and will probably eat another 5 more before the end of the day. They are the perfect bites to satisfy my sweet tooth! Made my own almond flour by grinding whole almonds. Maybe next time I’ll add mini chocolate chips instead – more chocolate in each bite!

    These bites are amazing!!! The toddler and I went through them in a weekend. Will definitely be adding them into our regular rotation!

  6. Glad you posted today. Worked this wknd and didn’t see. Regular choc chips, yes? I have some Lily’s in the cupboard and will make this week! Thanks!

    Fantastic recipe. As a newly diagnosed Type 1 Diabetic, I am still learning so this recipe is perfect for me and my little one. A fun and easy way to eat cleaner, healthier and spend time together. These have been a hit in our home!

    Loved the texture but would suggest adding swerve to sweeten just a tab and make the chick peas.

    I made two batches in two days because my kids and I ate these up so quickly! These don’t taste like typical chocolate chip cookie dough, so if you’re expecting that you might be a little disappointed (like my husband was at first… I caught him snacking on them before bed though! Haha). We didn’t have almond flour, so I used all oats – I’m not sure how much of a flavor difference that made. I’m sure my kids will request I make them again soon!

    I was craving some cookie dough but didn’t want all fo the calories..this hit all the marks. Easy to make, quick clean up, and everyone loved them—including very picky husband and toddler. Next time I am going to try adding raisins and some molasses to replace some of the maple syrup to make oatmeal raisin bites. We will definitely make these again. Great to snack on from fridge–especially when it’s 90+ degrees outside.

    Just made my second batch! The first barely lasted a week! My kids and all their friend legit think these are a dessert, and I don’t want to correct them yet! Found this site as I was searching for Diabetic recipes after failing my prenatal glucose test. The recipes have totally helped me manage my glucose while not totally swearing off sweets. Thank you!
