I adore cookie dough, but it’s definitely not the healthiest option! And if you’re pregnant or nursing you have to worry about raw eggs as well.
SO I have fixed up a healthy(ER) edible cookie dough that’s as close to guilt-free as you can get!
1 cup organic gluten free flour
⅔ cup organic chocolate chips
½ cup or less organic white chocolate chips *optional*
½ cup organic unsalted butter
¼ cup almond flour
(optional ¼ cup rolled oats, dried cranberries, or sunflower seeds)
¼ cup organic cane sugar
(if you’d like to replace cane sugar with a healthier substitute, use ¼ cup of coconut sugar or a 1 tablespoon of agave nectar instead! But beware you might need to add a bit more flour to get the right texture)
1-2 scoops organic protein powder or organic meal replacement.
Garden of Life raw organic meal replacement.
It’s light and full of nutrients plus it’s very low in sugar and high in protein and fiber!
1 teaspoon organic himalayan sea salt
1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
1 ziploc bag
Add flour, meal, and protein powder into a medium size bowl.
Then add sea salt.
Cream butter, sugar, and vanilla extract in a separate bowl.
Now add butter mixture to flour mixture and mix.
Add chocolate, white chocolate, and carob chips and mix.
Option: You can always add oats, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, or dried cranberries to the mixture!
Dough should be a little wet, unlike a usual cookie dough texture. That’s ok! Add dough to a ziploc bag and refrigerate for a half hour, let dough slightly soften and then serve!
This yummy cookie dough can be used as a dessert dip with thin graham crackers or my favorite, you can roll it into balls and refrigerate for a quick snack on the go! Preferably before or after a workout!
