Cookie dough you can feel good about eating! These Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls actually taste like a delicious chocolate chip-full hunk of cookie dough, but safe to eat! Made with good-for-you ingredients and packed with collagen! I use collagen daily to help with digestion, support healthy joints, and for hair and nail strength. Typically I use Great Lakes collagen hydrosolate in my morning matcha and whatever afternoon drink (it’s usually hot chocolate) I make myself, but love mixing it into my baked goods too. See here, here, and here for some other collagen spiked baked goods.
I’m so excited that Great Lakes (by far my favorite collagen brand) came out with a new line of flavored collagens. I used their vanilla flavor in these balls and really love the way they came out. Even my husband, who’s super suspect of supplements, wasn’t the wiser when he tried these balls. He loved them and thought they were dessert, but with the low sugar content (only 3 tbsp of maple syrup in the whole recipe), I’d put these into the snack category! I’m definitely going to be enjoying these as a post-work out snack!

Cookie Dough Collagen Bites
Cookie dough you can feel good about eating! Made with simple good-for-you ingredients and spiked with vanilla collagen. These Cookie Dough balls taste like the real deal but are naturally sweetened and paleo friendly!
paleo (gluten/grain/dairy free), naturally sweetened
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1/4 cup Great Lakes Vanilla Collagen
- 1/8 tsp sea salt
- 3 tbsp maple syrup
- 2-3 tbsp tahini or other nut/seed butter
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips or chunks
In a medium bowl mix together the almond flour, collagen, and sea salt.
Add in the maple syrup and 2 tbsp of tahini and mix until well combined. If dough is still dry add in the last tbsp of tahini until a dough forms.
Stir in chocolate chips, scoop out dough, and shape into balls.
Store in fridge or freezer!
I used Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips, which are not paleo-friendly to give these a classic cookie dough feel. But use your favorite coconut sugar sweetened or sugar free chocolate bar chopped into chunks instead!
