Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles – Tastes Like Raw Cookie Dough

Sharing is caring!

These chocolate chip cookie dough truffles are made with almonds, coconut oil, honey, chocolate chips, vanilla and a dash of salt, and can be coated with chocolate or served plain. (The first batch disappeared before I got a chance to dip them.) Once you try these tasty little cookie bites, you'll be hooked. Even my somewhat finicky husband loves them. They're a great way to get more coconut oil into your diet. (The Healthy Traditions website has a great recipe page with dozens of recipes using coconut products.)

To Make Homemade Almond Flour

*You can grind your own almond flour by placing whole almonds in a blender/food processor and blending until you get a fine meal. I soaked my whole almonds overnight in salted water, then skinned and dehydrated them. (Nourishing Traditions style crispy nuts). I find it better to process the ground almonds in small batches, so you get almond flour instead of almond butter.

  3. I have heard about how much better coconut oil is for our health. No GMO’s. I’m not sure how I WOULD USE IT. I would think it could be used in the same way as with other oils in cooking. I would research ways to use it if I were lucky enough to win.!

  29. My mom-in-law lives with us and she made the non-healthy version of these for us. I wish I would have found this before she made hers 🙂 Are there any suggestions out there for a beginner to try out coconut oil in her cooking? Should I just start making random substitutions? Thanks for your help.

    1. You can use it pretty much anywhere you use fats and oils. The only trick is that it gets hard in the mid-70s, so if you have cold ingredients in the recipe (like eggs right out of the fridge), you’ll probably have better results if you let the eggs warm to room temp. Otherwise you can end up with little pockets of hard coconut oil. The Tropical Traditions website has a HUGE recipe page, with everything from entrees to desserts and everything in between.

  30. we use it as a personal lubricant during lovemaking.so great to know something so natural is in my body.great using it to make popcorn and raw treats too,love it!!!!!!!

  31. These look amazing! I am passing this recipe along to my mother, my sister, and my sis-in-law who are all into health food. It’s funny, my mom and I were just discussing coconut oil, and were saying how we should get more into our diet. I can’t think of a better way to do it than eating it this way!

  32. I did not have enough honey, so I used what I had. These ” balls” were hard to roll, so I just pressed them into different shapes. I also did not have enough chocolate chips for the chocolate coating, so I just used the chips for the cookie dough. To me it tasted like I was eating flour out of the bag, I guess I was because they were only frozen and not baked.

    1. Skimping on the honey would definitely changes the flavor and texture, especially if your almond flour was on the dry side to start with. As you can see from the non-chocolate coated balls, mine are glossy, and stuck together quite well. The texture should be more like raw cookie dough, not flour. Not sure what to suggest without seeing the finished product, but I would guess more honey and a little more coconut oil would be a help if you care to try it again.

  33. This looks amazing! But…why…do…you do it…. in Lent!? Hahaha, just have to wait I guess!
    Love the website! Thank you for all that you teach people!

  34. Just a question: I have read blogs where this one commentor makes a statement that ALL coconut is tainted and sprayed down with DDT. Of course he never gives any sources, but I’m just wondering if anyone has heard this before and if they can give sources for the information. I have looked but can’t find anything about it.

    1. That’s the first I’ve heard of that claim. If you have the opportunity, I’d ask him to pony up sources. It’s possible that some coconut oil is contaminated. Many countries where coconuts are grown have less strict environmental regulations. That said, I know at least some producers do grow their coconuts organically, and organic certification doesn’t allow for DDT. The one reference I ws able to find seems to say just the opposite. From “Reviews of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology: Continuation of Residue Reviews“:

      “Sesame oil contained the highest levels of both DDT and HCH, while coconut oil had the least of the oil samples.”

  35. I love making chocolates – filled, barks, truffles, you name it.
    These were a huge hit with my 20 year old daughter and all her friends. And me!
    I replaced the honey with brown rice syrup because that is all I had on hand at the time.
    I also ground my own almonds and added a little coconut flour to the mix.
    It all worked out perfectly. Made a double batch and rolled 70 little teeny tiny balls.
    Chocolate dipped in dark chocolate.

    Thank you for this one – it’s a keeper!
