Paleo Breakfast Cookie Dough

I have no qualms what kind of diet you follow. Honestly.

Vegan? Cool.

Gluten Free? A-ok!

Grain Free? High 5!

Paleo? Gross. Just kidding.

Healthy No Bake Breakfast Cookie Dough for ONE- Easy, delicious and ready in just 5 minutes, NO butter, oil, grains or sugar! {vegan, gluten free, paleo recipe}- thebigmansworld.comI was fortunate late last year to have my first International Blogger Meetup with the awesome Meridien who follows a generally paleo style of eating. That, however, was such a minuet aspect- it was her personality, interests and quirks which made her company enjoyable. Ever since connecting with her, whenever I recipe experiment, I always (within reason!) try and see if I can ‘Meridien’ it….or make it Paleo friendly.

During our meet-up we discussed many things, including tim tams (Aussie Pride!) and cookie dough (American Pride!). When I first made my Nut Butter Breakfast Cookie Dough, I knew I had to try to Paleo-fy and see if it got the tick of approval from the expert herself. Well….Let’s just say the Paleo version MAY be more favoured over the original version.

Write a review
  1. 4 T coconut flour
  2. 1 T cocoa powder
  3. 1 T nut butter of choice (I used cashew butter)
  4. 1 T chopped nuts of choice (I used chopped cashews)
  5. 1 tsp+ coconut sugar (please adjust to desired level of sweetness)*
  6. Pinch sea salt** (Optional)
  7. 1/4-1/2 cup almond or coconut milk (depending on brand of coconut flour used)
  8. 1 T shredded coconut
  1. In a large mixing bowl, sift the coconut flour and cocoa powder to remove any clumps. Add in the coconut sugar and sea salt and mix well. Add in the nut butter and chopped nuts.
  2. Add the milk, 1 tablespoon at a time until a 'dough' consistency is formed. Shape into bite sized balls and set aside.
  3. Spread a plate with the shredded coconut and roll the balls in it to cover completely. Eat immediately or refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  1. * I don't like these too sweet so kept it at 1 tsp of sugar. For a sweeter dough adjust accordingly.
  2. ** Sea salt brings out the sweetness- This is optional but recommended.
  3. These are great to store in the freezer and simply remove 30 minutes before consumption. If making in batches, it's best tasting coming out of the fridge but can be kept at room temperature for up to 5 days.

  1. Mmm…Paleo or not, I can get on board with anything cookie dough related! I actually met an overseas blogger 10 days ago- Tara..who is just as awesome as she portrays in her blog. And of course I’ll be seeing you when you get to Mumbai (hint hint)!

  2. Ah I love a good ball recipe, especially one with cashews and coconut 🙂
    I keep finding we are making “paleo” evening meals – not intentional at all but it seems to happen.
    I met the little honey bee and her sister Lesley a few months ago. They are both so lovely and sweet!
    London is famous for everything stodge – pie and mash, fish and chips – such a healthy nation 😉

  3. Coconut flour is my favourite thing right now so i’m totally keen to try these! I made a paleo pumpkin pie a few weekends ago and it was actually really good. My town isn’t famous for any food, but a nearby town is the ‘beef capital of Australia’ and holds Beef Week every year, quite paleo friendly really.

  4. Yay totally totally totally gonna make these tomorrow 🙂 Sans sugar obviously but anyways, maybe I’ll sneak in a date or two.
    My area is indeed famous for food and even more for it’s beverages. Schnitzel, Sausages (though it’s deep-rooted predjudice that Germns eat sausages all the time), Pretzels (the only real pretzels btw) and of course diffrent sorts of beer.
    I’ve never met another blogger in real life but I would love to! We should totally go eat a head-sized Schnitzel then 🙂

    1. Hm….can you have honey or maple syrup or brown rice syrup? You could decrease the milk and add some of that? Otherwise definitely chop a date!

      WHEN we meet (which I promise you, will happen) we will be 1) dancing on tables 2) eating a tonne of meat. Pork knuckle!

  5. I was just about to say, “hey!” When you said paleo was gross! You have an awesome sense of humor : )

      1. Donna, how is eating real food gross? Just wondering. Do you prefer canned soup and ramen? Or maybe Kraft mac and cheese?

        Or are you trying your hand at trolling for the first time? If you are, you’re terrible at it.

  6. My city is famous for deep dish pizza!!! Lou malnattis all the way!

    I’ve never tried a specific diet. I just eat the things that make me feel awesome.

  7. I’ve never met a blogger from overseas, so you’ll be my first 😉 And I’m sure I must have had a paleo-friendly dessert at some point, but I don’t pay too much attention to that kind of thing so I can’t recall specifics.

    These balls, though… I want them [in my mouth]. Super intrigued by the combo of coconut flour and nut butter — gonna have to give it a try!

  8. I’m not sure I have ever eaten cookie dough for breakfast, but that doesn’t mean I have never thought about it 😉 I like that this is a healthier version of cookie dough so that I CAN eat it even at 8:00 a.m.

  9. I am in no shape or form on the Paleo diet but Paleo desserts are my fav!!

    And Miami is known for delicious Cuban food, but unfortunately, most of it isn’t vegetarian friendly. 🙁

  10. I like this! I will try a version of it with ground almonds instead of coconut flour (I don’t have that and don’t want to buy it 😉 ), with almond butter and chopped almonds then of course. I’ve never made such balls before!! I really have to give it a go!

    1. Hey, I’ve already made them!! I can’t believe it, haha. More often than not I say that I’m going to make a recipe but in the end actually don’t.
      I made them (as I mentioned) with ground almonds, almond butter and chopped almonds. However, they were a bit too salty for me at first so I added a bit more sweetener. I will post them tomorrow to my instagram account and tag you!! 🙂

        1. Yes, can’t wait! 🙂 But I just realised that I need to make a new batch of almond butter. Or maybe cashew butter this time!! And I will order a package of coconut flour, along with sea salt – promise 😉

        1. Hi! 🙂 As far as I remember I made the exact same recipe, but substituted the coconut flour with ground almonds/almond flour, chopped almonds for the chopped nuts, and almond butter as the nut butter. Hope that helps 🙂

  11. Ugh my city is famous for freaking Primanti’s Sandwiches … sandwiches with fries and coleslaw on top. Which could be good in theory but it’s so over-talked about here that I’m not enthused anymore. One thing I’m not over? Cookie dough. I used to sneak pieces of it from the freezer when I worked at the ice cream shop a few years ago. Good times :p I’m sure these bites are way healthier than the ones I had at work though lol

  12. These sound sooooo good! I’m actually rather bummed that I’m away on vacation and can’t make these asap. But its on like Donkey Kong once I get home! Your recipes are always fantastic and I’ve totally noticed you often have a paleo option – very appreciated!!

    I’m absolutely sending you a ton of money and an extra suitcase to bring me some of those yummy Tim Tams if you come out this way! 😉

  13. I’m guessing I’ve eaten a Paleo-friendly dessert before, but I’m not actually positive! Paleo or not, these look awesome. And I like the concept of Meridien-ing a recipe … I think I “Megan” recipes all the time by adding veggies 🙂

  14. Hahah I have zerrrrooooo care in the world about what diet you follow as long as you’re happy, healthy, and feeling good in your own skin. But back to this recipe…. As soon as I saw the title in my Bloglovin I was like OMGZZZ YES. Anything cookie dough. In my mouth. Now. Thanks.

  15. YUM! All I need is coconut milk, shredded coconut, and coconut sugar and I can make these! These look so freaking good.
    I’ve made a Paleo Cupcake…but before that, I don’t know if I’ve ever eaten or made a sweet paleo treat. Paleo-Friendly desserts always look so tasty though.
    I don’t think Birmingham, AL is known for anything special, except that we’re in the South, so southern food (collard greens, cornbread, black eyed peas, fried chicken (bleh) and more fried things…and more.)
    I do like collard greens and black eyed peas though.

    1. Of course.

      I had an idea using that pesto today- cold Summer pesto salad with added olives, red peppers and shallots. I was thinking feta too, but that just would overwhelm the pesto.

  16. I am not big on paleo treats mainly because the baking ingredients cost a lot, but I will do them occasionally especially if my kids can help me out with it since they love making treats. These look really interesting and super yummy, I’ll have to try!

  17. These sound amazing! I’m not paleo but sometimes I eat paleoish and definitely love making paleo meals! I love that I could make these and grab some balls on the go, haha. There are just too many dirty jokes, sorry!

  18. Those look delicious! As a perma-GF and sometimes Vegan, I always love finding treats that are both! Will definitely try these out and give you a shout out!

  19. I just used up the last of my coconut flour today making some banana almond flour mini muffins that Alexis (the Hummusapie) recommended – which coincidentally I think were Paleo. I was considering replacing my coconut flour since I don’t use it often and when I do, the recipe tends to be a dud… but this recipe is making me reconsider buying it again!

  20. I’ve had paleo treats before without realizing they are paleo. It’s almost like when marketers put a label “fat-free” on a bunch of grapes. Of course they are fat free! The sweet paleo treat I love are cacao-almond clusters. Again, didn’t know they were paleo…I just sort of realized it =P My town of Ithaca isn’t really famous for any type of cuisine…we’re more known for festivals and the cuisines the have. We have an apple festival, a chili cookoff, a chowder festival, a banana festival, a Scottish festival etc etc etc It’s pretty awesome to try all different types of things is one small area!

  21. You and Davs racking up the balls recipes. Love it.
    Does fruit count as a paleo sweet treat?? Dried figs and Greek yogurt? I’m not adventurous. I need more balls in my life.
    NYC is famous for………..cheesecake! Or not being famous for anything really.

  22. well…. I’m almost positive that my berry pie that I posted is considered paleo….. I don’t know the rules of the diet enough to confidently say it is though 🙂
    Come to Minnesota and you have to eat a juicy lucy!!! We claim to have invented them! Nothing better then an amazing burger stuffed with cheese!

  23. I love those ingredients- I’ll def be giving them a try! Cookie dough for breakfast is totally my style.

    While I have similar feelings towards a lot of the Paleo diet (gross! — can’t do bacon, beef, organ meat..!), I feel the basis of the diet is great and have adopted a lot of the philosophy in my own cooking. High nutrient foods = basis of all meals. Veggies over grains. Natural sweeteners over refined. And as much as I used to love grains, those are whittled way down now just because I’ve realized how much more I enjoy salads and giant plates of roasted veggies over a cup of rice or quinoa.

    1. Oh geebuz…Michelle- that reminds me of eating this special ‘satay’ in Malaysia which was organ meat…and I wasn’t told until afterwards!

      I love your eating style- and as such, your cooking philosophy!

  24. These are VERY high in fat. Of course they taste good. High fat means high calories, unless you can stop at one. High fat also means acne, heart disease, DVT, stroke, and on and on. Is it worth it to titillate your taste buds while sacrificing your health.

  25. um.

    I have EVERYTHING in my kitchen right now to make these! seriously – my project is at a standstill until I receive an email that my next edits are all a go – so I need something to do right now, I AM making these!!

    …I may just not check my email until I have cookie dough 😉

  26. Thank you so much for this recipe, so easy and quick and most important very tasty 🙂 I love coconut flour and coconut sugar, I keep them always in my kitchen cupboard since I decided to go on a paleo diet.

  27. O. My. Goodness! These look so good!!! Thanks for sharing them at Gluten Free Wednesdays 🙂


  28. omg.. this took my breadth away.. they are just so stunning.. and coming to the question, I have never met a blogger in my own area let alone overseas as I am pretty new to the blogging world.. hope to meet a lot of new friends some day
