Protein Cookie Dough
Let’s talk about cookie dough. But also let’s talk about why we have to. First of all: I love chatting with you guys. And sometimes the reason for creating recipes just has to be stated. As always you can scroll down to the recipe and skip all this, but for those of you looking for a reason to love a recipe more, just keep reading.
So as a kid, my mom told me to not eat raw cookie dough and I still tried it here and there. And it’s fantastic. But then I saw a news story about a woman who became super ill by eating raw cookie dough and was too scared after to eat it.
Instead, I spent so much money on safe to eat premade cookie dough at the store. Costco has a brand that is delicious but the issue is that I don’t need a metric ton of it and that’s what I had to buy there. Other times I’ve tried new brands and some were at best just ok.
So after complaining a whole bunch about it, I decided to try to make some myself. And let me tell you: this is try number 1,000,003. It might be a little bit of an exaggeration but if you’ve ever put your heart and soul into a recipe and then had a major fail then you’d understand why it felt like this. I even got close to perfecting it a month ago and gave up.
One thing I changed is that I stopped trying to use regular gluten-free flour or grinding up my own oats for this. I used a lot less of the almond flour that seemed to work the best and paired with the something I always have at my house: protein powder. So when I finally nailed it I figured it deserved a whole full history. Also, it’s for the Google algorithm so you can actually search my recipe!
Thank you and enjoy!
1 scoop Detox Organics Vanilla Protein
½ cup almond flour
¼ cup peanut butter
¼ cup raw honey
¼ cup dark chocolate chips
- Mix together the protein and almond flour until totally combined.
- Then mix in peanut butter and honey until all of the dry ingredients are combined into one large ball of dough.
- Gently flatten the ball, press in half of the chocolate chips. Reroll into a large cookie dough ball and gently work in the rest of the chips around the outside.
To make this vegan: Swap maple syrup in for the honey. Then swap the dark chocolate chips for “vegan enjoy life” chocolate chips.
