Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Dough Bites

The crazier life gets, the simpler things start to look in the kitchen around here. 

Sometimes in the midst of juggling a business, a household, and a moody munchkin - all I need is some quick energy on the fly.


And these no-bake, protein-packed, plant-strong energy bites are just that.


Inspired by the classic cookie, these doughy bites are made from a fully upgraded cast of characters. Whole medjool dates in place of white sugar, oats in place of refined flour, and almond butter in place of processed oils, butters or margarines - get ready for all the tastiness and none of the post-indulgence regret. 

Prep time: 10 miN

Total time: 10 min

Makes: 20 Bites


  • 3/4 cup pitted medjool dates, tightly packed

  • 2 cups rolled oats

  • 2 tsp cinnamon

  • 2/3 cup almond butter

  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 2 Tbsp hemp hearts

  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup

  • 3/4 cup organic Thompson raisins

  • splash of non-dairy milk


Add all ingredients except for the raisins into a large food processor and pulse until well-combined and uniform in texture. 

Transfer mixture to a large bowl and mix in the raisins. 

If the mixture is too crumbly to roll, add in some non-dairy milk a tablespoon at a time until the dough is sticky and able to roll into a formed ball. 

Roll into about 20, 1-inch bites.

Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for 5-7 days and ENJOY!
