Gluten-Free Monster Cookie Dough Bites that are also egg-free with a dairy-free option. They are smooth, creamy, and add just the right amount of sweetness to satisfy any craving.
My family has been on a cookie dough bite kick lately. We love that they’re no bake and mostly healthy. It’s easy to pull one out of the refrigerator or freezer when you have a sweet tooth and don’t want to bake something.
Most cookie dough bites only take a few minutes to mix together and while its best to chill them so they set up, you can still eat them as soon as you’re done mixing up the dough. My girls have been asking for Gluten-Free Monster Cookie Dough Bites lately. They love the mix of ingredients and who wouldn’t want a cookie dough bite swimming with M&M’s?
Can I make these dairy-free?
The only dairy in these raw cookie dough bites is the M&M’s. You can use dairy-free chocolate candies to keep these dairy-free.
These Gluten-Free Monster Cookie Dough bites are super fun for kids parties, Halloween parties, and holiday gatherings. You could use specific colors depending on the holiday you are celebrating. We made these ones with the standard colors because that’s what we had on hand. I plan on making these again for a Halloween party using the brown and orange M&Ms instead.
The day I made these we had guests show up. I put together a little snack plate and threw out a bowl of these. Instantly everyone reached for one. Even my oldest reached for one and she’s not really a cookie dough kind of kid. I was glad I had some on hand (and didn’t eat them already).
I can’t have oats, is there a substitute?
Oats are a big part of the monster cookie dough experience. If you can’t have oats you can add M&M’s to my Grain-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites recipe.
Can I use a different flour in this recipe?
I get this question all the time. This recipe was designed using almond flour. If you use a different flour you most likely will end up with a crumbly mess. There are a few who have make this recipe with coconut flour, but I haven’t tested it myself.
