Healthy Protein Cookie Dough Bites

These healthy protein cookie dough bites taste just like cookie dough and are made with only 7 ingredients in 10 minutes. They make the perfect bite-size treat that you can make ahead and take on the go! 


  • 1 cup fine blanched almond flour
  • 2 scoops (about 1/2 cup) vanilla protein powder
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons plant-based milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips – I used Lily’s brand
  • Pinch of kosher salt


  1. Add all ingredients, except the chocolate chips to a mixing bowl and mix well then fold in the chocolate chips.
  2. Roll the dough into even size balls. I used a small ice cream scoop.  A rounded tablespoon will also work. If the mixture is sticky when rolling then use wet hands to roll them. 
  3. Place the cookie dough balls onto a plate or baking sheet and chill them for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Serve cold or at room temperature. 


  • Make sure to use a good-quality protein powder. 
  • You can store these cookie dough bites in an airtight container and keep them in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
