Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

So last week, I shared with you delicious apple oatmeal bites.  And, until I made these, those were my favorite.  Then, I made some pumpkin oatmeal cookie dough, added chocolate chips and called it an afternoon snack. 

They count as a snack because they are wholesome, and they aren’t baked.  They are only a cookie if they are baked, right?! 

Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites – Adapted from Chocolate Covered Katie


  • 1 C quick cook oats
  • 1/2 C oat flour*
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/8 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • pinch of nutmeg or pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/8 C brown sugar
  • 1/8 C honey
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/3 C sweet potato puree
  • 1/8 C dark chocolate chips


Begin by making the oat flour – to do so, take roughly 1/2 C oats and grind them in a food processor or blender until a flour forms.  Combine the oat flour with 1 C quick cooking oats in a large bowl.  Add in a pinch of salt, 1/8 tsp. baking soda, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, and a pinch of nutmeg or pumpkin pie spice. 

Mix in 1/8 C chocolate chips (more or less to taste). 

In a second bowl, combine 1/8 C brown sugar, 1/8 C honey, 1/2 tsp. vanilla and 1/3 C sweet potato puree. 

Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ones until moist.  Then, refrigerate for 5-10 minutes. 

Shape into balls and place into an airtight container. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. 

Makes about 12 1 T bite-sized cookie dough bites. 


Store the leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.  Makes about 1 dozen. 


  1. Great recipe, SnoWhite. Do you make/use the oat flour just to keep it gluten free? Any reason you don't use whole wheat flour?

    1. You can use whole wheat flour, but yes, that way they can be GF (provided your oats can be too). I just thought it would be fun to use oat flour.

  2. Perfect lil things to have lying around a pinch ! yum

    1. Thanks Jennifer! It's always such a treat to hear you say hello :)

  3. Oh yum! I may just have to make these tonight! ;)

  4. Excited to try these! I'll try some canned pumpkin instead of SP puree. Thanks for a GF recipe :)

    1. Sounds great! You reminded me that I want to assemble all my GF recipes for easier access.


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
