How to Make Black Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

You know me, I LOVE simple recipes. These bites are ready in 10 minutes and are very easy to make. If you like recipe videos, scroll down to the recipe card to watch the video. You can also follow the written method here.

  • Step 1: Add almond flour, maple syrup (or agave syrup), peanut butter and activated charcoal powder to your blender or food processor. Blend until everything is well-combined. The dough should stick together when you press it between your fingers.
  • Step 2: Take one teaspoon of dough and form a ball by rolling it between your palms. Repeat until there is no dough left. I made 8 medium-sized balls.
  • Step 3: Add dark chocolate chips all over the protein bites. Roll the bites between your palms to make them nice and round again.
  • Step 4: Place the bites on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and freeze for 1 hour. You can serve them frozen or let them thaw for 5 minutes before eating. I personally love them frozen. Enjoy!!

What Are These Protein Balls Made Of? (5 Ingredients)

You will only need 5 ingredients to make these Halloween bites:

Amond flour: if you want to use oat flour instead, you might need to use a bit less than what the recipe requires. Otherwise, the bites might turn out too dry.

Maple syrup (or agave syrup)

Peanut butter: if you don’t like the taste of peanut butter or if you are allergic to peanuts, you can use any other nut or seed butter instead. The bites will turn out as delicious!

Dark chocolate chips

Activated charcoal: this is what is going to make the bites black. Activated charcoal is perfectly safe to consume in small quantities. However, keep in mind that it can interfere with medication.

Oh, and if you’re wondering why some of the bites in the video have green spots, it’s because I first tried to use a green powder to make them green. But they turned out greenish-yellow which I didn’t like, so I decided to add activated charcoal to make them black 🙂

How to Store These Halloween Cookie Dough Bites?

You can keep these Halloween protein bites in the freezer for up to 3 months easily.

They are great for meal prep too, so feel free to leave out the activated charcoal if you just want a healthy snack idea for work or school. You will end up with delicious peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough bites that taste exactly the same but aren’t black.
