Super healthy, and quite festive, these Gluten-Free Funfetti Cookie Dough Bites are a fun and simple dessert that everyone who likes sprinkles will surely love. And with only one bowl and five ingredients, you will appreciate how easy cleanup is.
Like my friend Brianna Hobbs from Flippin Delicious, my girls and I love sprinkles. And we love Funfetti desserts. I could think of at least 20 desserts that should have sprinkles – cookie dough bites are one of them. What is a cookie without sprinkles?
My girls think sprinkles should be on everything.
Do you agree?
Lately it’s been pretty warm where I live and I haven’t wanted to turn on the oven except to make donuts, and my Birthday Cake Donuts are amazing and have loads of sprinkles, in case you were wondering. We’ve been sticking to no-bake dessert shots, like these Cherry Pie Dessert Shots, or Gluten-Free Triple Chocolate Dessert shots.
We’ve also been into making cookie dough bites. Cookie dough is pretty amazing, but you really shouldn’t eat it if it has raw eggs in it. All of my cookie dough bite recipes are egg free, and most of them are also grain-free. They use almond flour as the base.
If you get the right kind of almond flour, your cookie dough bites will be smooth and creamy like real cookie dough.
I’ve been making our cookie dough bites somewhat healthy lately. They are dairy-free, egg-free, and also refined sugar free (except if you use sprinkles that are made with sugar). I use either honey or pure maple syrup to sweeten the dough (just a little though).
You can make large batches of Gluten-Free Funfetti Cookie Dough Bites and freeze them. That’s what we do. I like to pull one out when I have a massive sweet tooth. They’re pretty tasty frozen, but sometimes I let my cookie dough bite sit at room temperature before I devour it.
