These balls are meant to be eaten as is, from the freezer! Of course, this is an egg-free recipe where I use Greek yogurt as a binder. I could eat cookie dough all day long; now I can without the hazard. Enjoy!

These no-bake chocolate chip cookie dough balls will satisfy a sweet tooth! This recipe has all the flavor of regular cookie dough without the egg. The dough is perfectly sweet with just a bit of tang from the yogurt. They're the perfect size for a quick treat. We found them easier to roll after chilling the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes. Then scoop, roll, and freeze.

Tip: If you're concerned about eating raw flour, spread the flour on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes. Let cool then use in the recipe. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls

Step-by-Step

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fit with a paddle attachment (or with a large bowl and a wooden spoon) cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about three minutes in the machine.
  2. Beat in yogurt along with the vanilla extract and stir to combine.
  3. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add all at once to the butter and sugar mixture and stir until incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips.
  4. Scoop large spoonfuls or ice cream scoops onto a waxed paper-lined cookie sheet. You can spear each dough ball with a cute plastic fork or a popsicle stick, or just leave them in balls as I did. Place in the freezer overnight or until frozen, at least three hours.
