Healthy Halloween Cookie Dough Balls

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on October 31, 2009


A reader named Katherine recently emailed me to tell me that my ‘balls‘ were a huge hit in her office, and her co-workers kept asking for more of Angela’s balls!!

That makes me giggle.

I’ve been in a ball kind of mood lately, so I present to you the next three fabulous ball variations..

Healthy Halloween Chocolate Cookie Dough Balls (Versions 2, 3, 4)


  • 1 cup ground raw cashews
  • 1 cup ground oats
  • 1.5 cup ground walnuts
  • 1/4 cup Agave Nectar
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 heaping T of carob powder
  • 1 heaping T of cocoa
  • Shredded coconut


Dough: Grind up raw cashews and oats in a food processor. Place ookie dough ingredients (except for cocoa, carob and coconut) into a large bowl and mix by hand or with a spoon. Mix until a dough forms and you can make a large ball. If your dough is too sticky add more ground walnuts or cashews to make it thicker. Divide batter into 3 equal parts and place in 3 small bowls. In one of the parts mix in the cocoa powder. In another part, mix in the carob, and in the last part just leave it as is. This will form the three flavours of balls. Pop the balls onto a baking sheet lined with parchment and pop into the freezer for 10 mins.

Melt chocolate. Remove balls from freezer and dip into the chocolate if preferred. Sprinkle with chia seeds. Roll other balls in coconut. Pop into freezer to set again and then remove and leave at room temperature. Easy as that!


CHIA bugs! hehe


This recipe yields about 50 mini balls.


yum yum!!!!!!


If you want to roll them in coconut you may want to leave your dough a bit sticky.

bahaha… have you seen the SNL episode with the “Schweaty balls”? This post reminded me of that!

Looks great!

This post reminds me of the Alec Baldwin “Schwety Balls” skit on Saturday Night Live. hahaha! Too funny.
Those treats look great. Happy Halloween!


Diana October 31, 2009 at 2:14 pm

Those sound (and look!) so amazing, Angela! :)

Wow, those cookie balls look great!!!


Jessica @ How Sweet It Is October 31, 2009 at 2:27 pm

Ange – love your setup! So classy and elegant. No wonder your balls are a hit! :)


Katherine October 31, 2009 at 2:56 pm

Hehehe all my coworkers will be so pleased they got a mention on OSG (especially if I bring in the new variation!!)

Happy birthday to OSG and happy Halloween, Angela!


Cynthia (It All Changes) October 31, 2009 at 3:03 pm

I remember seeing you post that on Twitter and giggling out loud. But they do look yummy!


Jess (Fit Chick in the City) October 31, 2009 at 3:17 pm

Your balls look delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe! I hope OSG has a fantastic birthday!


Chloe (Naturally Frugal) October 31, 2009 at 3:45 pm

Oh yum! My coworker also has balls that she makes, but they are definitely not as healthy as this. I just might have to introduce these “lean balls” into my office.

Happy Glow-versary!


Jolene October 31, 2009 at 4:09 pm

Mmmm, all the balls look great :-) Hehe!!


kim October 31, 2009 at 4:28 pm

I can’t wait to try these! Glo bar question – Will you be doing variety packs on a regular basis?


theskinnyplate October 31, 2009 at 4:55 pm

Wow. Those looks delicious. You should pass these out as treats for Halloween. Hope you have a great one!


Emily October 31, 2009 at 5:06 pm

yummy!! I hope you have a fabulous night!


Paige @ Running Around Normal October 31, 2009 at 5:28 pm

Yay!:) My friend’s birthday is this weekend, and she hates cookies, but loves cookie dough – I’m so gonna make these for her.


GirlonRaw October 31, 2009 at 6:07 pm

YUM. I just want to eat my computer screen. You have some delicious looking products.


Haleigh October 31, 2009 at 6:27 pm

Amazing baked goods- as always! Happy Halloween!


kaila October 31, 2009 at 6:33 pm

Kelly October 31, 2009 at 9:25 pm

I just want to say that I’ve been reading your blog for quite awhile now – you are truly an inspiration!! I always look forward to reading about your training and your yummy treats! Thanks! Keep on glowing!

The balls look delicious! Very tempting… The texture of your Glo Bars looks great too. I’m guessing international shopping is not in your immediate future nor a franchise ;)


Kiersten November 1, 2009 at 10:19 am

Those look amazing Angela! I wish I would have seen these before Halloween because I totally would have made them as a Halloween treat for us. I may have to just make them anyway.


The Voracious Vegan November 1, 2009 at 10:41 am

I am DEFINITELY going to make these, they look AMAZING!


Jackie @ TriToLose November 1, 2009 at 11:26 am

They look absolutely delicious! I’ll have to make them for my swimmers – they’re healthy and a little naughty too. Keep the recipes coming. :)


kristi (sweet cheeks) November 1, 2009 at 11:30 am

YUM! those look amazing, Angela!


jessica November 1, 2009 at 11:59 am

Those cookie dough balls look delicious. You’re so creative! I hope you had a Happy Halloween yesterday.

I have a random question about your knee sleeves. I know you use them and I think I remember you buying a new brand recently that you didn’t like as much. I was wondering what brand you did like or if you could recommend a brand to me? I would really like to start wearing knee sleeves as I have bad knees and don’t want to further injure them. Thanks!


Amanda November 1, 2009 at 1:53 pm

Your balls look delicious! hahahaha! Hey, did you see the free shipping on So awesome!


Christine November 1, 2009 at 4:30 pm
