PB2 Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls are gluten-free, vegan and made with just 5 ingredients.

This post was sponsored by PB2, but all opinions are my own.

PB2 Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls

If you couldn’t tell from the number of times I’ve shared my Gluten-Free Crunchy Peanut Butter Balls on Instagram, I’m definitely a fan of using PB2 in my bliss balls. Not to mention, since you can’t normally eat raw cookie dough, this fixes that problem and will cure all cookie dough cravings.

Turns out PB2 can act as somewhat of a flour replacement in these no-bake recipes and the more excuses I have to add peanut butter flavor to my recipes, the better!

If you’re unfamiliar with PB2, it’s powdered peanut butter made with roasted peanuts that are pressed to remove most of the natural oils. The result is a powdered peanut product that is packed with flavor but contains 90% less fat and 70% fewer calories than traditional peanut butter!

I used PB2 for the base of my dough for this recipe to keep it low-fat for a change. These cookie dough balls make for a great pre-workout treat since they are a great source of easy to digest carbs and protein.

They’re also great for after a tough workout since they are lower in fat. Fat slows your digestion which makes it harder to absorb the protein you need to refuel your muscles!

PB2 just came out with their latest product, PB2 with prebiotics and probiotics, so when they asked me to collaborate it was a no brainer.

I add PB2 to my oatmeal every morning (if you follow me on Instagram you already know this), and taking a probiotic is a non-negotiable for my morning routine, so their new PB2 is the best of both worlds!

PB2 Pre + Probiotic Peanut Powder is peanut butter reimagined! Pre and Probiotics are added for digestive support and they added a dash of monk fruit for sweetness (aka no added sugar!).

The result is peanut powder with zero added sugar​, 1billion CFU of probiotics per serving ​and 6g of plant protein per serving.

What more could you ask for?

I also like using the PB2 because you don’t have to worry about using heat-treated flour and other ingredients to sweeten the eggless cookie dough. 

Another easy edible cookie dough recipe that I love are my homemade cookie dough balls made with oat flour, nut butter and rainbow sprinkles.

How to Make No Bake Cookie Dough Bites

In a large bowl, whisk the peanut butter powder, salt, and powdered sugar together. Stir in the water or use and electric mixer. 

Fold in the regular chocolate chips using a rubber spatula. 

Using a mini ice cream scoop, scoop out tablespoon cookie dough balls and place them on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. 

Freeze the edible cookie dough balls for 30 minutes. 

Remove and roll each one into smooth balls. 

Substitutions and Variations 

Make without PB2: use my other edible chocolate chip cookie dough recipe. You could also use almond butter or cashew butter with that recipe as well. 

Oatmeal White Chocolate Cookie Dough Balls: also has craisins, white chocolate chips, and dried blueberries

Gluten-Free Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough Balls: can use oat flour or almond flour, and no need to heat treat! 

Candy Coating: dip the no bake chocolate chip cookie dough bites into melted chocolate or candy melts to cover the outside.

​How to Store 

These no bake chocolate chip cookie dough balls will stay fresh for up to 5 days when stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

You can also place them in a freezer bag separated by parchment paper and freeze for 2 more. Allow them to thaw a little bit at room temperature before eating. 

Why Can’t You Eat Regular Cookie Dough? 

Eating raw dough can be risky due to two main ingredients: raw eggs and raw flour.

  1. Raw Eggs: Raw eggs can contain Salmonella bacteria, which can cause food poisoning. Symptoms include diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps.
  2. Raw Flour: Raw flour can contain harmful bacteria such as E. coli. Flour is a raw agricultural product and hasn’t been treated to kill bacteria.

I hope you all love these easy chocolate chip cookie dough balls as much as we do!  Don’t forget to tag me on Instagram when you make them! 🙂

  1. Hi. I’m new to peanut butter powder. What sugar substitute would you recommend with this recipe to make it keto friendly? Monk fruit? Stevia? What measurement?
    Thank you for this clever treat. I definitely want to try it. A 24 oz tub of a different brand (they don’t carry PB2 at my local Walmart) was $10.

  2. This recipe has my mouth watering. P2B is 1 of my newest go to flavorings. I recently used it in brownie mix along with some banana paste. About 3 table spoons. The end result was a chocolate, banana and peanut butter cake like brownie that was super moist. This was for a party and the kids finished off the whole tray. I tried not to cheat and sipped my red tea which helped me steer clear of my cravings. give it a try. https://bit.ly/2YUU5nq
