No Bake Peanut Butter Biscoff Cookie Dough Bites

I don’t find air travel exciting, fun, or glamorous.

In fact, I find it to be one big cattle call steeped in chaos and stress at best, and nearly a strip search and patdowns at worse at the security checkpoints.

The only thing that makes air travel better is when I find out I may be flying Delta airlines.

Why? 

Because I love Biscoff cookies!

Up until recently it was nearly impossible to score Biscoffs unless you were flying Delta

That’s been changed and you can now order them online or there are certain grocery stores that carry them.

Maybe some of you are just as Biscoff-crazed as I am. 

If you’ve never had a Biscoff, I’d say it’s a marriage of a ginger snap cookie and a graham cracker and a crispy molasses cookie with the best blend of spices, seasonings, and crunch.  Love them.

And you can order or buy Biscoff spread now, too.

To.Die.For

If you really don’t want to order Biscoffs and can’t buy them in your area, you can use graham crackers or ginger snaps in this recipe.

It’s no secret I love peanut butter recipes

And chocolate recipes

And so I combined those two loves into this recipe

I also have a thing for no-bake cookie dough bites and balls

Because I’d much prefer to no-bake than actually turn on my oven and bake

Unbaking just means it will be a shorter amount of time before I can dig into the finished product!

It took me about 10 minutes, tops, to make these.

I’d rather sink my teeth in sooner rather than later.

Wouldn’t you?

Because who doesn’t love raw cookie dough?

And peanut butter cookie dough spiked with chocolate chips and Biscoffs really hit the spot.

These bites taste like real peanut butter cookie dough and since they are vegan you can eat as many of these raw dough balls as your little heart desires.

These are what I mentioned I was creating

No Bake Peanut Butter Biscoff Cookie Dough Bites (Vegan, almost GF, see notes for easy adaptation)

1/3 c cashews (unsalted, and raw if possible)

1/3 c oats (whole rolled oats, not quick cook)

1/3 c Biscoff Cookies (or graham crackers or ginger snaps, see notes below)

2 tbsp brown sugar

1/4 c peanut butter

2 tbsp agave or maple syrup (or combination)

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 to 1/3 c chocolate chips

Yields: approximately 16-18 bites

Directions:  Add cashews, oats, and Biscoffs  to Vita-Mix or food processor and grind into a fine powder.  Then, add brown sugar, peanut butter, agave, and vanilla extract, and blend again.  Remove dough from Vita and place into a bowl.  Add chocolate chips and stir them in by hand.  Roll balls by hand and place in refrigerator or freezer for storage.  Will keep for week(s)/month(s) in the freezer.

Notes: 

If you don’t have Biscoff cookies, use graham crackers or ginger snap cookies

If you don’t have cashews/oats, I’m sure that most other types of flour will work (almond, wheat, pastry, white, etc.) in place of grinding cashews/oats into flour

To make this entire recipe Gluten Free, use:

GF graham crackers such as these

Or

Use 1/3 c cashews + 2/3 c oats and omit the Biscoff/Graham crackers entirely

Tips:

If dough is soft or difficult to work with, refrigerate/freeze for 20 minutes prior to forming into balls.

If the dough is too dry, add more peanut butter or agave, a small drizzle at a time.

If the dough is too wet, add more brown sugar or more dry ingredients, i.e. crush another Biscoff or graham cracker and stir it in

[/print_this]

Gather your ingredients

Add the dry ingredients to your Vita or food proc

Blend.

Add the remaining ingredients.  Blend again.

Stir in chocolate chips by hand and roll into balls.

Easy!

These are just as good as they sound

With chomp marks to prove it

I mentioned in the past that I store all my dessert bites and balls in the freezer

I had these in the freezer in advance of their big photo shoot debut and here’s what they looked like coming right out of the freezer

And here they were 5 minutes later

It really does not take long at all for them to come up to room temperature

In 10 minutes, they were ready to munch

I have other versions of peanut butter cookie dough bites:

No-Bake Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls (with a High Protein Option, & GF)

and

Raw Vegan Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Balls (GF)

and

Raw Vegan Peanut Butter Vanilla Balls (or Sunflower Seed/Almond/Cashew Butter, & GF)

See, I told you I love peanut butter recipes!

Questions:

1. Have you ever tried Biscoffs? 

Yes, and it was love at first bite about 10+ years ago!

It’s only recently that I don’t have to beg flight attendants on Delta flights for extra and then put them in my purse so I can bring them home for a rainy day stash.  Yes, I love them that much.

2. Do you like graham crackers, gingerbread cookies, molasses cookies?  Fave kind of cookie overall?

I say that I love peanut butter and chocolate, and I really do.

But, when a gingerbread or molasses (or snickerdoodle or oatmeal raisin cookie) is done right, (i.e. soft in the middle, chewy overall, with barely hardened edges, and the flavor is spot on) there is nothing better!

3. Any no-bake cookie bites/balls recipe requests?

I may have already made it (I have about 30+ different ball/bite recipes in this post) but let me know.  I’m up for a challenge.  I think.
