What would you say if I told you that you could eat cookie dough as a snack or for dessert and it could be totally healthy. You probably wouldn’t believe me, right? Or you might think I’m going to tell you about a nasty bean filled concoction that doesn’t include a single item real cookie dough does – wrong. Or you could be like Jesse and think I’d totally lost the plot.
I sat down in my favourite red chair, bowl in hand, munching away and Jesse asked me what I was eating. “Cookie dough” I said, quite possibly with a mouthful of said cookie dough. “What? Cookie dough? You didn’t feel like baking the cookies or something?” Jesse asked me. Psh! I’m lazy, but I’m not that lazy!
I’ve been trying to find ways to add more protein into my diet, so I’ve been playing around with different combinations and new recipes. What I came up with was a recipe for a single serving of protein cookie dough that tastes just like peanut butter cookie dough and uses no funky ingredients. No beans, no protein powders, no artificial sugars or nasties.
But be warned, now that I’ve given you a recipe that allows you to eat healthy cookie dough, you’ll probably find yourself making it all the time and bragging about it to everyone. Jesse is addicted too…. But you can’t really blame him, can you?
But let's get onto the recipe! >>
Healthy Peanut Butter Cookie Dough For One makes 1 snack sized serving
1/4 cup peanut flour
1 tsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp - 1 tsp maple syrup (depending on how sweet you like things)
Chocolate chips/chopped chocolate (use as many as you want)
A pinch of salt
Enough water/milk to make a dough like consistency
Combine all of your ingredients, adding enough liquid to form a dough like consistency (it will only be a small amount, likely less than a tablespoon). Devour!
How easy is that?!
But tell me, are you a cookie dough fan? What's your favourite type?
And what snack are you loving at the moment?
