Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

 

If you are like me, you probably prefer to eat chocolate chip cookies before they are cooked, in their raw  delicious, natural form. This edible cookie dough recipe is not only healthy and high in protein, it takes just five minutes to make!

 


This recipe is very similar some previous cookie dough recipes and every so often I like to revamped and tweak them a bit. I’m on a quest to perfect this cookie dough! And I think I may have done it this time!

Healthy Dark Chocolate Banana Bread

This super easy Dark Chocolate Banana Bread is extremely moist and made using only  whole food ingredients.

I shared some photos of this banana bread on my Instagram story last week and feedback I got was absolutely overwhelming so thank you for all of your kind words. I wanted to share this delicious recipe sooner but I was out of town all week in Milwaukee, Wisconsin–which by the way has some incredible food and by food, I mean CHEESE!

 


 

This banana bread is perfect in so many ways. For starters, it’s flavored with dark chocolate and who doesn’t love chocolate?

 

There’s added protein powder to kick those macros up a notch and not to mention give it a little extra sweetness without adding refined sugar! Double bonus!

 

 

 

Pro tip: If you want your taste buds to explode from a flavor overload, put Nuts ‘N More Cocoa Hazelnut Spread on your dark chocolate banana bread slice and you will not regret it!
