Imagine edible cookie dough dipped in chocolate—that’s what you have in this recipe from Mixed & Measured blogger Riley Yahr. Add chopped pecans, dried fruit, or dust with more coconut for an added treat. 

What you need:

1 cup peanut butter
¼ cup maple syrup
⅓ cup vegan mini chocolate chips
⅓ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
¼ cup gluten-free rolled oats

For the dipping chocolate:
½ cup vegan chocolate chips
1 tablespoon coconut oil

What you do:

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside. 
  2. In a large bowl, mix together peanut butter and maple syrup until creamy. Add mini chocolate chips, coconut flakes, and oats and mix until combined. 
  3. Using a cookie dough scoop, place dough balls on prepared baking sheet. Place in freezer for 30 minutes. 
  4. Meanwhile, in a medium microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate chips and coconut oil. Microwave in 15-second intervals, stirring in between each interval, until chocolate has melted. 
  5. Remove dough balls from freezer and dip half in melted chocolate. Place back on sheet and freeze for 3 more minutes until chocolate hardens. Serve immediately, or keep in a covered container in freezer until ready to enjoy.
