Three-Ingredient Cookie Dough Bites

By: Mary Pat Baldauf 

Using only three ingredients, and taking about five minutes to make, this recipe couldn’t be simpler or more delicious!

cookie dough bites


  • 1 cup raw organic cashews
  • 1 cup fresh medjool dates, pitted
  • 2-3 tablespoons raw cacao nibs or chocolate chips. (I used Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Nibs!)


  1. Put the cashews into a high-speed blender or food processor and blend until they are very small pieces.
  2. Add in the dates and blend to combine. If using a high-speed blender, you may need to stop the blender to stir the mixture, making sure the dates get diced into small pieces.
  3. Take the mixture out of the blender and place in a bowl. The mixture will be sticky. Use your hands to fold in the chocolate nibs/chips so they spread evenly throughout the mixture.
  4. Take a tablespoon of the cookie dough and roll around in your palms, forming a ball. (I made mine smaller and got 36 bites out of this recipe.)
  5. Repeat until all of the cookie dough is used.
