  • ½ cup peanut butter (all-natural, no added sugar or oil)
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • ¾ cups + 2-3 tablespoons oat flour (see note below, ensure gf if necessary)


  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl, mix together the peanut butter, maple syrup, and vanilla extract.
  • Mix in the cocoa powder until is is fully and evenly incorporated.
  • Add the oat flour and mix. You can use a spoon to start, but it will be easier to use your hands to get the dough fully mixed.
  • Scoop out about 1 ½ tablespoons of dough and roll it into a ball between your palms. Continue until you have used all the dough.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to a week.


Make sure you use all-natural peanut butter because it has a different texture than peanut butter with additives such as sugar and oil.
For the oat flour, ¾ cups + 2 tablespoons has worked well for me every time I’ve tested this recipe, however if you want them to be a bit more firm, add another tablespoon. Keep in mind that even if these cookie dough balls seem soft, they will firm up after a day.
You can store these cookie dough balls in an airtight container at room temperature, but if you live in a humid climate, you may want to keep them in the fridge.
Nutrition information is only an estimate and may vary based on specific products used and the size of the cookie dough bites.
