Substitutions & Variations

Want to swap some ingredients? Here are some changes you can make.

  • Sweetener - the maple syrup can be swapped for another natural sweetener like honey, coconut sugar, or agave, or brown sugar.
  • Flour - you can swap the almond flour for oat flour or coconut flour. I would not recommend using all purpose flour (the FDA recommends never eating raw wheat flour).
  • Nut Butter - you can swap the PB for other nut butters like almond butter, cashew butter, or sunflower seed butter
  • Chocolate Chips - feel free to swap the dark chocolate chips for milk chocolate chips or a chopped chocolate bar.
  • Other Mix-ins - you can also add chopped nuts (hazelnuts, pecans, or walnuts), shaved coconut, dried fruit (cranberries, chopped figs, or chopped apricots), or protein powder (vanilla or chocolate) to the cookie dough.

The cookie dough will keep for up to 4 days in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

You may want to let the dough come to room temperature outside of the refrigerator before eating. It tends to harden up if it's in the fridge for longer than 30 minutes.

If it's too thick, heat up a teaspoon of coconut oil or almond milk and stir that into the mix.

Optional Preparation - If you want to make healthy edible cookie dough bites, you can make ½ inch balls with a cookie scoop. Place them on a small baking sheet and pop them in the freezer for 15 minutes.

Specialty Ingredients - I recommend using real vanilla extract - it has a much better flavor than imitation.

Diet/Allergy Alternatives - If you have a nut allergy, swap the almond flour for oat flour.
