Cookie Dough Bliss Balls – made from rice!
Cookie dough bliss balls that are healthy and won’t make you sick…?
Yes, it’s true! One of the best parts about vegan cooking? You can eat your cookie dough RAW. Yes, that means as MUCH uncooked cookie dough and cake batter as you want, because there are no nasty rotting bovine secretions (milk) or cholesterol-ridden chicken menstruation (egg) therein — no salmonella! Seriously – who wants to eat all that dead stuff when you can eat beautiful plant foods — eg these cookie dough bliss balls — that are ALIVE, and feel more alive yourself! Not to mention the weightloss, fitness gains, mental clarity, high vibrations, abundant energy… the list goes on (see my “about me” page if interested).
Anyway, I love every variation of these cookie dough bites – I make them with oats and dates often, but I decided to try them with brown rice for a super cheap, grounding variation. This recipe is suitable for those practicing WSLF or gluten-free diets. It’s no surprise that I, rice queen, would find a way to use rice in cookie dough, but it totally works! Let me know what you think. If you like this recipe, make sure to check out my recipe for gluten free peanut butter protein cookies as well! The maple vanilla frosting would be awesome on these cookie dough bliss balls.

Add some raw vanilla protein powder for an extra kick of protein if you like, and experiment with adding tahini, nut butters or PB powder if you'd like too.
- 2.5 cups brown rice cooked
- 1 cup water
- 2/3 cup coconut sugar or other sweetener
- 1/2 cup corn flour
- Chocolate chips or even oreos!
- Persian Halva: Add 4T tahini and 1 tsp rosewater and more corn flour to thicken
- Choc-orange: Add 3T cacao powder, 2T orange zest + handful melted orange-chocolate pieces
- Choc-peppermint: Add 3T cacao powder + a few drops peppermint essence
- Bounty: Add 3T cacao powder + 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
- Peanut Butter: Add 2-3T Pb2 powder or regular PB + additional sweetener
- Gingerbread: Add a pinch of each cinnamon, ginger + nutmeg. Replace the water with Silk Nog (seriously, this stuff is CRACK). Offset the spices with additional sweetener
Blend the brown rice and water in a food processor or high-powered blender. This step will take a while and you will need to keep pushing down the corners. If the mixture is 'stuck', stop the blender, give it a mix with a spoon and then restart it. Keep doing this until it forms a paste
Transfer to a bowl and add coconut sugar. Feel free to play around with quantities in order to reach the level of sweetness you prefer
Add corn flour and mix well. If the mixture is too thin, add a little extra. This is the point where you would add your additional flavors too
Take spoon-sized pieces and roll into balls. You want the mixture to be thick and doughy. See my video for references. Place in the refrigerator
Check out the recipe video on this page for references. You can eat the bliss balls straight away but the texture is much nicer after they have firmed up in the fridge for a while.
