Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Dough Bites

When I leave town for a conference, work trip or project; I’m 100% focused and in what you call “work mode.”

I’m always grateful for the opportunity to get out of my four walls in southern suburbia and meet other people with whom I can talk social media, business and MOMables.Healthy No Bake Oatmeal Raisin Energy Bites

Upon my return, the kids always want “mom” treats and their favorite homemade meals. The truth is, that returning home is also exhausting. I have to catch up on laundry, homework, grocery shopping and spending some quality time with the kids individually.

Am I always in the mood to bake something? Not really.

These Oatmeal Raisin cookie dough bites are a delicious portable snack. Watch and see how easy they are to make!

I try to explain to my kids that “mom loves to cook not bake.” So what do I do when my kids want a baked treat and I don’t feel like baking?

I head over to the MOMables website and browse through some of the kid-tested quick recipes, of course! My go to recipe is the no-bake cookie dough bites.  No, I don’t make cookie dough with raw eggs and let them eat it by the spoonful! I think I deserve a bit more credit, don’t you think?

These oatmeal raisin cookie dough bites taste just like the real thing, are loaded with omega 3s, fiber and protein. All the goodness of a healthy snack plus the taste of an oatmeal raisin cookie in each bite.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Dough Bites

1 1/2 dozen cookie dough bites

  • Author: Laura Fuentes - SuperGlueMom
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 18 bites 1x
  • Category: Dessert / Snack


  • 1/2 cup creamy raw almond butter or peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup raw honey or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 3 Tablespoons quick oats
  • 2 Tablespoons ground flax seed
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup California raisins


  1. In a large bowl, mix together nut butter, honey (or maple syrup) and vanilla until creamy and well blended.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the coconut flour, ground flax seed, quick oats, cinnamon and sea salt. Add dry ingredients to the wet and mix well to combine (I like to use a wooden spoon). Fold in the raisins
  3. Use your hands to knead the dough. If the dough is too wet, add a bit more coconut flour. If it’s too dry and doesn’t hold together well, knead in one teaspoon (or two) or water.
  4. Scoop out tablespoon-size portions and roll into one-inch balls using your hands to create a bite-sized treat.
  5. Refrigerate for 30 minutes and serve.

    Can you make this without coconut flour? Or is there a substitute?

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      I would substitute almond flour.

  2. I love how you are super honest in saying you don’t want to always bake. I am sooo not a cooking-kinda mom. Although I do love when I make something and my family loves it. So these cookie dough bites are a win-win for me!

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      thank you Helen! you’ll soon be addicted.

  4. Amanda says:

    Looks great! I have never heard of coconut flour, or seen it. Is that available at whole foods?

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      it sure is! that’s where I got mine. It’s a green bag.

  5. Desiree says:

    Simple enough…looks tasty Can’t wait to try it! My husband’s not a fan of raisins so let’s see how it goes.

    Btw, thank you for letting us busy moms know about contests like the raisin recipe contest, those are great little opportunities to put our culinary creations out there!
    Unfortunately I currently live in Puerto Rico and most contests don’t apply here, even if it is a US territory =(

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      oh shucks! well, I will keep you posted of more contests and hopefully the do let you enter! If he doesn’t eat raisins you can use chocolate chips 🙂

  6. Pam M. says:

    Has anyone tried this with Sun Butter or Soy Nut Butter? I am guessing it would work fine, but if someone has already tested it, I would be curious (nut allergy in some settings I would want to make these for). Thanks in advance!

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      Hi Pam! It will work just fine.

  7. Meredith says:

    I have Bob’s Red Mill Whole Ground Flaxseed Meal. What is the difference between that and the ground flax seed that this recipe calls for? Thanks in advance.

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      Meredith, it’s the same. I grind my own flax and therefore it’s ground flax or flaxseed meal. thank you for clarifying!

  8. Meredith says:

    Ooooooh man, these are so good. We used the honey instead of maple syrup and I added a few chocolate chips.

    Thank you for thus recipe! Just made them and they are fab! Taste great! My 18 month old seemed to love them but my 3 year old wasn’t sure! I love them so it’s still a winner!

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      I am glad 1 out of 2 approved! Enjoy Ami!

  10. Laura says:

    can these be made with gluten free oats (not quick oats)? I have celiac disease and I haven’t seen gluten free quick oats.

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      Bob’s Red Mill has a dedicated gluten-free line I’d check them out. And yes, you could make them with regular oats. Perhaps you want to pulse them a few times in a food processor or blender to break them down a little.

  11. Ana says:

    Hi! Thank you for this healthy recipe! I’m just starting my adventures into healthy eating and cooking, and this sounds like something my family would thoroughly enjoy. …with one caveat. We have a peanut allergy and a tree nut allergy. That might automatically disqualify us from this no-bake recipe, but I thought I’d ask, is there anything we could substitute for the peanut and almond butters? Thanks again!

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      Try Sunflower Butter 🙂

  12. Carmen L Swilley says:

    Do you have the nutritional info on these?

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      Hi Carmen, the recipe has been updated and the nutritional information is available for you. Enjoy!
