No Bake Eggnog Bites

“And then before we went out, we had these drinks called ‘Eggnog’. It was so good!”

“You drank eggs? You will get worms now.”

“No, mum. EGGNOG, not eggs. It’s a drink.”

“You will get worms.”

“No, but…”


Don’t try to explain the beauty of the eggnog beverage to my mum. You will just need to accept the fact that you will indeed get worms. 

Ironically, before I tried my first sip of eggnog (or rather, first heard of what eggnog was), I too thought it was a beverage based off raw eggs. However, once I learned that the eggs in it were cooked, I was game to try it and fell in love. The nerdy part of me pretended I was drinking Butterbeer, even though it had no relation whatsoever. Since being back in America, you can imagine just how excited I was to see Eggnog stocked at all the supermarkets.

Although I’ll pretend I didn’t see the store named brands whipping it out in SEPTEMBER

What to do with leftover Eggnog

Traditional eggnog (or the ones I had previously sampled) had typically been full of refined sugar and unless made with a dairy-free milk was unsuitable for those following a vegan, paleo or dairy free lifestyle. I’ve partnered up with my friends at Silk to share a delicious recipe featuring their delicious eggnog! I’ve previously tried their Nog Original and was a huge fan.

This year, I experienced two new flavors- Their Almond Nog original (AMAZING in this recipe) and their Almond Nog Pumpkin Spice. The creamy, rich texture was perfect straight from the carton or one better- Warmed up for 30 seconds. 

These healthy no Bake Eggnog bites are soft, chewy and doughy and the perfect snack to have on hand any time of the year! They also use one bowl and take less than 10 minutes to whip up. You’d think they were unhealthy because they taste like dessert but actually are the perfect healthy snack or dessert to enjoy anytime! They are naturally gluten-free, vegan, dairy free and come with a tested paleo and protein-packed option! 

Homemade Eggnog VS Storebought 

HACK! For my paleo and keto friends out there and for all those occasions the flavored eggnog isn’t available- Check out the instructions to make homemade ‘eggnog’ using Silk’s original unsweetened almond milk. This version is also paleo friendly, so my paleo friends don’t miss out! 

Make these delicious no bake eggnog bites and if your ever in the presence of my mum, be aware that you will have worms.

Easy, delicious eggnog bites which are eggnog flavored and take less than 5 minutes to whip up and require no baking! Soft and doughy, these no bake bites and naturally vegan, gluten free, dairy free, paleo and keto! 
Servings: 18 Balls
Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 1 min
Total: 6 mins



  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients and mix well. 
  • In a microwave-safe bowl or stovetop, heat your nut butter with your sticky sweetener until combined. Pour your wet mixture to the dry mixture and mix well. Add the eggnog until a thick batter is formed- If the batter is too thin, add a dash more coconut flour.
  • Using your hands, form into small microwave-safe balls. Roll balls in extra granulated sweetener and place on a baking tray or plate. Refrigerate for at least 10 minutes to firm up.


* I used a monk fruit sweetener. Any granulated sweetener of choice will work.
** I used a monk fruit maple syrup. For a refined sugar free option, pure maple syrup and agave nectar work great!
*** For those who don't have access to eggnog- Make a simple version using 1 cup unsweetened coconut or almond milk, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, 1/4 tsp cloves, drop of rum extract and 2 T granulated sweetener of choice.
No Bake Eggnog Bites (Vegan, Keto, Paleo, Dairy Free) should be kept refrigerated, for up to 2 weeks. They are also freezer friendly.

  1. Um, weren’t you just mocking candy canes and bloggers who hurry the holidays. I’d call shenanigans except the Hubby loves his eggnog.

  2. I was never a big fan of Eggnog but this post has made me reconsider. I gotta get my hands on some Almond Nog!!

  3. Would using a whey protein powder screw these up? I know in the past I have read that whey makes things sticky, but that is all I have right now. However, I NEED to try these, so I can buy a different type!

    1. Hi Katelyn! I usually avoid whey as it makes it SO sticky and hard to work with- You can use it for this but you’d need to add more coconut flour and a dash less liquid 🙂

    1. Hi Joanna! The original recipe uses pre-made dairy free eggnog 🙂 The extra instructions at the bottom for the DIY version includes that 🙂

  4. For the longest time I didn’t even know you could buy eggnog in the store. Growing up, my dad always made it himself… with raw eggs!! And it was delicious!

  5. Made these this past weekend. You don’t mention in the directions when to add the protein powder! I ended up just mixing it in with the flour and such, though, and everything seemed to turn out okay. I used the pumpkin spice nog, though I used about 1/8 cup to get a really thick dough that resulted in awesomely dense, chewy balls. Rolled ’em in coconut sugar, too, and it’s a delightful pairing. I wasn’t much a fan of the nog on its own due to having too much ginger in it (what is up with that? half the store-bought pumpkin spice stuff I’ve tried has too much ginger!), but it got watered down enough in these balls to just be awesome. Thanks so much for the recipe!

  6. Im a little confused why this recipe is listed as paleo when oats are the main ingredient and includes any kind of egg nog {dairy free or not}, which is guaranteed to be loaded with refined sugars..

    1. Hi Emma, please read the full ingredients list and directions- The tested paleo option is listed there, along with a homemade hack for paleo friendly eggnog.

  7. Too funny all these no raw egg people. Woman celebrating her 117th birthday insists on having one every day. Many people into fitness eats more than one. Don’t taste the cake batter and everyone gets a trophy! That was mean, I’m messing with you all. I probably have worms cause I like rare and med rare steaks. ?
