Anyone else prefer cookie dough to baked cookies? I could literally eat an entire bowl of cookie dough to myself. Especially chocolate chip cookie dough!
Since I’ve been following Arbonne’s Healthy Living Program (about 80% of the time when I’m not traveling), cookie dough hasn’t really been on the menu. But every once in a while I have a major craving for a little sweet treat.
But what about dessert!? Sometimes a girl just wants a little treat that doesn’t completely counteract all of the healthy foods she’s been eating! Enter: protein powder cookie dough!
Healthy Protein Powder Cookie Dough
Protein Powder Cookie Dough is a great way to get that cookie dough flavor and taste without all of the added calories, fat & sugar!
I don’t know about you, but I love sneaking a little cookie dough from the mixing bowl. The great thing about this recipe is that now you can! And it’s perfectly safe to eat raw!
I like to make it as a single serving, but you can easily double or triple it if you want to feed more people.
How to Make Protein Powder Cookie Dough
To make my healthy protein powder cookie dough, you’ll need to pick out a protein powder to start.
I like using Arbonne’s Vanilla Protein Powder. Arbonne’s protein shake mix is non-GMO and has 20 grams of vegan protein per serving. It’s a plant powered protein made from peas, rice & cranberries, making it easy to digest and also helps keep you full for longer. It also has a low glycemic index, meaning it won’t cause your blood sugar to spike. This helps reduce sugar cravings! I use this same protein powder in my protein shakes and protein balls.
You can substitute another protein powder, but I don’t recommend using whey-based protein powder because it will give you a runny, sticky textured dough.
Instead of butter and eggs, the almond milk binds the dough dough together. You can use any nut milk, just keep an eye out to make sure it’s unsweetened so you’re not adding a bunch of sugar to it! This also makes it safe to eat raw.
If you use the Arbonne Protein Powder, you don’t need to add any sugar or sweetener because it’s naturally sweetened.
You don’t need any special tools or kitchen utensils, just a bowl and spoon. It’s so easy to make you can whip it up in just a couple of minutes!
- 3 tbsp vanilla protein powder
- 1 tbsp coconut flour
- ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
- ⅛ tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbs mini chocolate chips
- In a small bowl, mix the protein powder and coconut flour.
- Then, slowly mix in the almond milk and vanilla.
- Stir in the mini chocolate chips.
- Using the back of your spoon, gently press down on the mixture until it sticks together.
If your dough is too runny, add a little bit more protein powder. If it’s too crumbly, add a little more almond milk. Serve and enjoy!
