Chickpeas – If you can’t do chickpeas, no worries! You can try using white beans or if you want to skip the beans all together, I have a recipe for vegan cookie dough bars that are just as delicious and beans aren’t involved.
Protein powder – If you don’t have vanilla protein powder on hand or want to make this for kiddos, you can use oat flour instead. You’ll likely just need more sugar to sweeten up the dough.
Coconut sugar – You can use cane sugar or brown sugar instead.
How to Serve Cookie Dough
This cookie dough is insanely good on it’s own, but if you’re feeling fancy here are some additional ways to serve it up:
Sundae – For a cookie dough sundae with a chocolate drizzle simply use an ice cream scoop to scoop the dough into a small bowl. Melt 1-2 Tablespoons of additional chocolate chips with 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil in the microwave for 15-20 seconds. Drizzle chocolate over the cookie dough. Enjoy.
Balls – Roll the dough (using a heaping Tablespoon) into balls. These can also be dipped in chocolate for chocolate covered cookie dough bites.
Dip – Add almond milk (about 1/4 or so) for a thinner texture that’s perfect for dipping. Serve with apple slices or graham crackers.
Can I Make Cookies With This Recipe?
This recipe was intended to be an edible cookie dough recipe so I’ve actually never tried using the dough to bake cookies. I really need to test it to see if it works, but in the meantime if you’re looking for a protein cookie recipe, try these peanut butter protein cookies.
How to Store
Store any remaining cookie dough in an airtight container in the fridge. It should last for up to 3-4 days.
