No-Bake Oreo Cookie Dough Bites

I say this loud and proud, these no-bake Oreo cookie dough bites are not healthful by any means, but they are worthy, especially if you are an Oreo lover. This was a fun recipe to develop and truthfully, I did it for my son who loves my eggless chocolate chip cookie dough bites (and Oreos) and wanted a chocolate cookie dough ball option. It just so happened I had Oreos in the pantry, so the end result was these indulgent little treats.

For these Oreo cookie dough bites I used oat flour something I have been enjoying working with these days. For those unfamiliar oat flour, like oat milk, has become a popular, healthier option recently. But let’s start with the basic question, what exactly is oat flour?

Oat Flour

Oat flour is a whole grain flour made from oats.  It’s naturally gluten free, and full of flavor and nutrition. Oat flour has a silky texture and a subtle ‘oaty’ flavor.  It is similar to wheat flour except that it doesn’t contain any gluten.  Oat flour is considered a very healthy product, with more protein and fiber than regular flour.  It’s lower in carbs, too.  Oat flour has all the nutritional benefits of oatmeal.

Many say oat flour is healthier, but why exactly are they stating that? Here’s what I’ve learned about oat flour.

 Possible Health Benefits of Oat Flour

  • Feel Full longer: Oats or products that are made from oats like oat flour can help you feel full for longer and helps you maintain a healthy weight.
  • Reduce Risk of Heart Disease: Oat flour contains both soluble and insoluble fiber, which helps reduce your risk of developing coronary heart disease or cardiovascular disease.
  • Helps Lower Bad Cholesterol: Oat flour is that it contains beta-glucans, which helps lower bad cholesterol. Beta-glucan is an extremely glutinous soluble fiber, so when it travels along your small intestine, it curbs the absorption of bad cholesterol.
  • Possible Diabetes Prevention: Studies show that oats, when consumed in moderation, can help people with diabetes or blood sugar issues control their blood sugar levels.
  • Helps Normalize Blood Pressure: Studies have show that adding oat to your diet can help reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure, especially if you have mild or borderline hypertension to help normalize your blood pressure.

How To Make Your Own Oat Flour

You can buy oat flour in most large supermarkets, health food or specialty stores or, if you’re interested, you can make your own. All you’ll need a food processor (or a blender), and oats, that’s all. You use raw oats, any type of oat groats, steel cut oats, or old fashioned rolled oats, and process for a few seconds until they turn into a fine powder.

Truth-be-told, you don’t need to make homemade oat flour to make these Oreo cookie dough balls, so don’t let that stop you. These one bowl, no-bake treats are simple to whip up and can be yours to enjoy with a glass of milk in a matter of minutes.
