This healthy cookie dough nice cream recipe is perfect for cookie dough lovers! (Gluten-Free, Vegan, Paleo)

NOTE: This will make more cookie dough than you need. Store the leftover cookie dough in an airtight bag or container in the freezer for up to 1 month.



For The Healthy Cookie Dough Bites:

  • 3/4 cup almond flour (not regular flour*)
  • 1/4 cup butter, vegan butter, or coconut oil, softened
  • 2 Tbsp honey (or pure maple syrup)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips (or chopped chocolate)

For the nice cream

  • 4 frozen ripe bananas, cut into slices (we like to freeze them like this)
  • 1/4 cup milk, or more if needed (I use unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk)


For the cookie dough:

  1. Line a plate with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together butter/oil, honey, vanilla, and salt until well mixed and creamy. Mix in the almond flour. Stir in chocolate chips. Mixture will be fairly soft.
  3. Use a teaspoon to make tiny little balls. Place in the freezer for 20-30 minutes, or until firm.

For the nice cream:

  1. When you’re ready for the ice cream, place bananas and milk into a blender or food processor. Process until smooth, adding more milk as necessary. Stir in cookie dough balls to taste and enjoy immediately!


*Regular flour or gluten-free flour is not considered safe to eat raw. Don’t substitute it in this recipe unless you heat treat it first!
