30 Second Raw Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Truffles (Gluten/Grain/Sugar/Egg/Dairy Free) With Directions to make without Peanut Butter.

by Brittany on August 6, 2012

For months now I have been making these delicious little truffles- and for whatever reason it never crossed my mind to share the “recipe”. They are so simple that I’m not really sure they can be counted as a recipe. All I can tell you is that this is my go to treat when I have a sweet tooth. High Protein, Low Carb, Sugar Free- they work perfect for me.

This recipe makes only about 6 small truffles. The perfect amount for a quick guilt free treat.

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Truffles.

2 heaping Tbs of Natural Peanut Butter (or any other nut or seed butter.)
1 – 1/2 Tbs Xylitol
1 Tsp. Vanilla Extract
Pinch of Salt
Stevia to taste (Powdered or Liquid from Nunaturals)

Raw Cacao Nibs (or chocolate chips)

Combine all ingredients in a small cup or bowl. Roll the dough into about 6 little balls and roll each in cacao nibs or chocolate chips. Eat right away or freeze for an equally delicious treat. 

Recipe Notes:

  • This recipe calls for Xylitol- its my favorite sugar free- sugar to use as its anti-bacterial and anti fungal. In these truffles it provides a really nice crunchy sugar texture that I think all cookie dough should have. If you prefer or cannot eat xylitol any other granulated sugar with that gritty texture will work. If you omit the xylitol and use a different variety of sugar you may not need the stevia. I did a combo of stevia and xylitol together as I find their flavors really balance each other out to make things taste as if they have sugar. They need each other!
  • Any variety of nut or seed butter will work here. I have even used a mix of tahini and cashew butter. (100% tahini does not taste good- make sure only to do half and half). For those needing to avoid sugar make sure to read your labels. The brand Once Again carries an awesome sunflower seed butter that is organic, salt and sugar free! It works great in this recipe.
  • All brands of stevia are not equal. Nunaturals is the only brand I recommend. It does not have the weird aftertaste that is so common with stevia products.

These look amazing! I can’t wait to make some for both myself and my monkey boy. :) May have to use some coconut palm sugar though.

yum! can’t wait to try!

oooh never thought of putting these together like that. i will have to find that sunbutter because i haven’t tried any due to the sugar. beware to everyone to keep your dogs off these because they might be extra tempted with the PB, xylitol is very very toxic to dogs (learned this the hard way sadly).


Brittany August 6, 2012 at 3:04 am

I know it! So unfortunate. Though we generally avoid giving anything sweet to our dogs. They prefer meat and veggies anyways :)

Your recipes make me wish I could just spend all day in the kitchen making yummy things! (not that these take long but if I made everything that I wanted to make!).


Elizabeth August 6, 2012 at 6:52 am

Sybil, I feel the same way! I should stay off the internet and stop looking at all the new recipes. Then maybe I’d have a chance to catch up. ;-)

Mmm…I love peanut butter! I make something similar to this, too…yum! Just like eating a big hunk of pb.

Seriously, the non-recipes are the BEST recipes! I’m going to have to give these a go, thanks Brittany!

I love nut butter “cookie doughs”. I just discovered a very simple one that I make with homemade almond butter, cinnamon, salt, and semi-sweet chocolate chips. Although I think there’s too much sugar in the chocolate chips for me.

Do you know of a low-sugar chocolate chip? I may just have to crush up 80% dark chocolate (I love NibMor which is sweetened with Agave Nectar).


Brittany August 29, 2012 at 5:51 pm

You could cut up dark chocolate as you suggested OR try using raw cacao nibs. No sugar there and in cookies they give the same sort of effect as chocolate chips! (which is why I used them in this recipe :)

I found your website through a friend and I can’t tell you how excited I was! I recently cut out sugar and grains from my diet and so your website has been great in inspiring me with new creative recipes. Thank you!
I am excited to try this recipe, I am right now actually!

I use Xylitol for most recipes and I thought I would share with everyone about how deadly Xylitol can be for dogs and other pets. Few people and actually few Vets know about this so I like to get the word out whenever possible. Xylitol is a sugar alcohol and dogs/housepets cannot handle it the way humans can. When they ingest xylitol, it causes a rapid release of the hormone insulin, causing a sudden decrease in blood glucose. This in turn may cause vomiting, weakness, ataxia (uncoordinated movements), depression, hypokalemia (decreased potassium), seizures, coma, liver dysfunction and/or failure. As little as a gram can KILL a 10 pound dog. It’s so important to keep products containing Xylitol away from our four legged friends. It’s found in so many things too- gum, candy, baked goods. Enjoy the wonderful benefits of the product, but be careful if you have a pet in the home! I would be heart broken if my puppy died from my Xylitol use. I know many people use the product in their homes around their pets so I thought I would share!

I can’t seem to find the Once Again sunflower seed butter you’ve referenced. I’ve found that brand at whole foods, etc but it DOES include sugar and salt. Maybe they changed their recipe? Or have more than one line of sunflower seed butter? Just thought I’d ask. Thanks!!


Brittany January 11, 2013 at 8:46 pm

It can be hard to find- you may need to order if you want a sugar free seed butter ( or you can always make your own!)


Holly February 8, 2013 at 8:25 pm

Thanks so much for the recipe, Brittany! This is exactly what I needed–simple, quick, and customizable. I used almond butter instead of peanut and omitted the xylitol and salt. I didn’t mind losing the gritty texture–they were delicious anyway!


Katie July 12, 2013 at 7:09 pm

Any suggestions for online NuNaturals purchases? I don’t have a WFM :(


Amanda July 12, 2013 at 8:12 pm

Sooo good. Made mine with chocolate sunflower/peanut butter and used brown sugar instead of xylitol because i don’t own any right now. Very tasty and I’m sure they’d be good as the recipe shows as well.


Jennifer August 11, 2013 at 10:40 pm

I really needed a “treat” tonight but don’t have the time or energy to bake. I made these for the first time. So super easy! I used a darker coconut palm sugar and unsweetened carob chips. My 7 year-old thought they were delicious, too!
