If we were to invite you over to our house to make cookies, you’d quickly learn that when it comes to the cookie dough, the three of us are divided. One sister won’t be able to keep her hands out of the cookie dough bowl once it’s made. Another will grab a big enough spoonful to keep her busy until the rest of the cookies are baked. And the other sister will do whatever she can to save as much dough from her pesky sisters for the actual cookies. As a guest, you’ll be sure to find at least one friend among us!
When it comes to cookie dough tasting, what camp do you usually fall in? We know you severe cookie dough lovers shouldn’t be confined to just a taste… even if you say that’s all you want. We know that when you make cookies you really want the dough. When you are a cookie dough lover or need to occupy a cookie dough lover, let’s make amends and make some snackable dough for easy tasting (feasting).
Cookie dough bites are a great way to enjoy that soft, creamy texture in a very convenient way. Using a bit of milk in place of the eggs makes these safe to eat and vegan! The flavor of these is created with cinnamon, erythritol and cream of tartar. The cream of tartar adds that important depth of flavor that we love in classic snickerdoodles! These bites have a delicious cookie dough taste without the classic unhealthy ingredients, so you can feel pretty good about eating cookie dough right out of the bowl. Enjoy!
Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough Bites
1/4 cup Cashew Butter
1/4 cup Earth Balance Butter or Unsalted Butter
2 tablespoons Vanilla Almond Milk
2 teaspoons Vanilla Stevia Extract
1/2 teaspoon Cream of Tartar
1 1/2 teaspoons Cinnamon, divided
1/4 teaspoon Sea Salt
4 Tablespoons Xylitol or Erythritol, divided
3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon Oat Flour
- In a mixing bowl, cream together the cashew butter and butter. Add in the almond milk, stevia extract and 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Add the cream of tartar, 3 tablespoons of xylitol or erythritol with the flour and mix until smooth.
- Roll dough into 9-10 balls and dust with additional 1 tablespoon of sweetener and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Enjoy immediately or chill in the fridge for 15 minutes. Store leftovers in an airtight container.
Would ghee work in place of butter?

You could try ghee but you’ll probably have to add extra flour to reach a nice consistency. Another alternative could be softened coconut butter (to the consistency of soft butter). Good luck!

These sound so yummy! I definitely like to munch on cookie dough as I’m putting the cookies together… Usually by the time the cookies are actually baked, I’m over it and don’t really even want them anymore because I’ve had my fill of dough!
