Whether you don’t want to bake something because turning on the oven makes it just that much hotter in the house, or you like raw foods, you’ll love this healthy dessert that requires no baking. This recipe is gluten-free and vegan, without tasting that way. Ready to make a dessert that the whole family will love and that you won’t have to (literally) sweat over? Check out this succulent healthy no bake recipe.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

We all love chocolate chip cookies, right? And since Starbucks hopped on the cake pop trend (which are just truffles on a stick) we’ve loved those as well. But a cake pop has lots of white refined sugar and wheat, depending on which one you get. The same is true for a classic cookie. And let’s be honest, the gluten-free and vegan cookie choices on the market aren’t all they’re cracked- up to be. So, what’s someone trying to eat clean to do when the craving for that chocolate chip cookie hits? Make these chocolate chip cookie dough truffles. They taste like the perfect marriage between a cookie and a cake pop, so you have the best of both worlds.

Combine the following ingredients in a bowl:

1 ½ cups of rolled oats

1 ¼ cup of GF oat flour

¾ cup unsweetened shredded coconut (toast for 2 minutes for a nuttier flavor) ½ teaspoon salt

Then, add these wet ingredients:

¼ cup melted coconut oil

½ cup maple syrup

2 flax eggs (or condensed milk)

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Once that’s combined, add in 1 cup of vegan (or non) chocolate chips. Roll the dough into balls, about the size of a ping pong ball. Place the balls on a sheet of parchment paper and place the balls in a freezer. Onto the chocolate coating!

Place the below ingredients in a bowl:

1 ½ cups of vegan chocolate chips (or normal)

¼ teaspoon coconut oil

Use a double boiler method to melt the chocolate. When the chocolate is melted, take the frozen balls out of the freezer and put a toothpick deep in one ball. Dip the ball into the melted chocolate and let the excess drip off. Place the dipped ball back onto the cold baking sheet, still on the parchment paper. Repeat until all are covered! Keep finished balls in a Tupperware in the fridge for up to two weeks.

Healthy Desserts

There’s nothing like eating dessert and knowing that you’re indulging in a treat that’s not as bad for you as say, a traditional chocolate chip cookie. That is the beauty of a healthy no bake recipe. While you don’t get the fresh-out-of-the-oven smell with the no baking version, you still get the taste that brings you back to your childhood. We love these truffles with a hot chocolate or a cold glass of your favorite milk (or nut milk). It’s the perfect moment of self care for when your stomach wants a treat as much as your mind does. Just remember to take your time when you’re eating them. They’re very rich, so go slow, savor every bite and think to yourself “I deserve this,” because you do.
