Healthy Edible Cookie Dough

Perhaps I’ve made it my mission in life to make as many versions of healthy edible cookie dough as possible because not only do I have an entire eBook dedicated to cookie dough recipes but this might also be my fourth or fifth one I’ve posted on my blog.

 

Safe to say that I LOVE cookie dough.


 

 

This recipe takes just a couple of minutes to throw together and you are ready to start inserting a spoon.

 

 

This cookie dough freezer well too! Unlike healthy cookie dough made using coconut oil, this dough tastes even better when it’s rolled into balls and frozen for a bite sized snack right out of the freezer!

Healthy Dark Chocolate Brownies {no added sugar + high protein}

I have about a hundred different brownie recipes up my sleeve and most of them consist of some secret ingredient like beans or a banana  (which I’m not hating on because I do love a good black bean brownie) but it is nice to have a dense brownie that I don’t have to blend before baking – something more traditional…

 


 

I have made this recipe a few times using different flavored proteins to sweeten the brownies (and obviously to add extra protein)  and guess what? They all worked out perfectly! If you don’t have a chocolate flavored protein, that’s okay because vanilla or peanut butter flavor will work just as nicely!

 

 

I highly recommend dipping your brownies in peanut butter… just trust!
