Clean Eat Recipe :: Cookie Dough!

Share
This is my favorite recipe so far!  I haven't had real cookie dough in over a year & I am the kind of person who prefers to eat the cookie dough instead of the cookie.  I have had this recipe in the works for weeks now trying to perfect it.  Let me know what you think!


Ingredients:
1/4 c natural peanut butter
2 tsp pure vanilla extract (avoid HFCS)
2 squares of dark chocolate
1 Tbsp honey
1/4 c egg whites (make sure you use the 100% egg whites, pasteurized)
1 Tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Directions:
1. Add all ingredients to a blender.


2. Place wax paper on a plate & add cookie dough.


3. This is the hard part...put them in the freezer for at least an hour.  I have found that after 2 hours they taste the best!

Can you tell that we LOVE this recipe?


Makes 15 pieces (that is if all of your dough makes it into the freezer).  One serving is 4 pieces.

Macros (per piece):
Calories: 45
Carbs: 3.5 g
Fat: 3 g
Protein: 2 g

He & She Tip: You can add protein powder or more almond milk, if needed.

    1. Four little "dough balls" are one serving...the macros are per piece though so that people can decide how many they truly want to eat. :-) Hope that helps!

  10. I accidentally deleted my above comment (sorry!) But, I love this recipe. I just made two batches and I was really surprised how FULL just a little bit made me! I ate some fresh out of the blender and they were warm, almost like fresh-baked oatmeal chocolate chip cookies :)

  12. I'm going to try this, but alter it slightly. Instead of the 1/4 C peanut butter I'm going to use 1/4 C whole wheat and instead of 1 T almond milk I'm going to use 1 T whole milk. I'll let you know how it goes!

  13. I just made these using 1 scoop chocolate peanut butter whey protein, 2 Tbs P2b and unsweetened chocolate almond milk! I omitted the chocolate square since I used other chocolate flavored ingredients. The rest of the ingredients were the same. The flavor is amazing!! I'm glad I have a tasty treat that fits into my clean diet!

    1. That sounds like a great combo! I need to buy some peanut butter protein powder... :-)

  15. Wait...you don't cook the egg whites? Is that okay?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Liquid, pasteurized egg whites are safe. Just make sure they are pasteurized (they are in a carton near the normal eggs).

  16. Awesome! Made them tonight and have been singing your praises! Thank you!

  17. I love this so much... I just made a batch tonight and it is everything my sweet tooth has been craving since my switch to eating clean. Previously I've just been cutting up LUNA bars into small bite size pieces to conquer that craving. This is so much more delicious and nutritious! I didn't use the almond milk (I accidentally didn't see it because I was too excited to try it!) and they still turned out great!! Thanks so much!!

  19. These are awesome.I almost lost a finger trying to get the last bit from the blender hehe.

    Just a quick question. I used egg whites from actual eggs. Was that a bad idea?

    Oh! I did cook one. Not bad. I think I prefer the dough.

    1. Please don't loose any fingers! The cookie dough is amazing though!

      As for the egg whites, if they are available to you, we definitely suggest the pasteurized variety for health safety reasons.

    2. Haha! None lost yet! I love this recipe! I had the ingredients so decided to make it. I will buy pasteurized for my next batch!Thanks!

  21. Just made these. OMG yum! I put the oats in first then processed them to a smooth, flour-like texture. I'm just not a fan of the texture of oats, but this works for me.

  30. I made these today. I added a tiny bit of chocolate protein powder and used about 30 mini choc chips bc I didnt have squares. I was hesitant but these turned out amazing! They cured my sweet tooth after supper and were guilt free- the best part. I even ate just one for dessert. My husband gobbled some up too. I will be using this ALL the time. Thank you for the recipe.

    1. I haven't tried using chocolate protein powder but that sounds good! I was pretty suprised at how good they were considering I just threw a bunch of stuff in the blender! :-) Thanks for trying them!

  31. Hi! Will try this as soon as posible, looks awesome! One question.. It says "2 tsp vanilla" , is it vanilla essence? Or vanilla protien powder? Is there supposed to be protein powder in this dough?

    Thank you so much!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Klara! The vanilla is Pure Vanilla Extract (try to find the kind with no corn syrup added - usually near the spices)! No protein powder in this dough! I hope you enjoy them! :-)

  32. I commented on facebook yesterday that I made this for the first time. I just left it in a container in the fridge and just get a spoonful when needed. I don't necessarily 'eat clean' or yet anyway but this is sooo good! No more candy for me! Thanks a ton!

  34. What are the oats you are referring to in this recipe? Steel cut or rolled? Thanks! One week in to these recipes and I've got a sweet tooth:)

    1. They are the Quick Oats (or Quick + 1 minute, something like that)!

  35. I love, love, love these. I accidentally added 1/4 cup honey instead of 1 Tbsp so they were a bit runny but still awesome. My own fault. I can't wait to make them again.

  39. I made these Saturday and they were delicious! My husband loved it as well...will be making more very soon to satisfy the cravings for sweets :)

  40. These are great! Even my little 2 year old loves them.(I did omit the egg whites). When she asks for a "treat", this is what I will be giving her from now on (instead of candy). Thanks!

  41. After my first two months of eating clean, one night I decided I needed something a bit sweeter than a banana. I came across this page and made these-- then immediately made two batches more to share with family. Amazing! The hardest part is keeping my husband from stealing them all. :)

  42. Am i supposed to blend the ingredients in the blender or just mix them?

    ReplyDelete
  43. These were much too wet to form into balls. Is it because I used Almond Butter?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It might have been. I've never used almond butter for these but almond butter is a bit runny so that is probably why.

  44. I made these for the first time tonight. Thank you for this recipe. They taste so good and I don't feel quite so guilty eating them. Just need to remember to not eat them all in one night ;)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Trying these tonight! If adding protein powder, how much do you suggest?

  46. Looks amazing!! Have you experimented with baking? Just wondering how they would turn out or if you need to add anything else to them for baking?

    1. We have experimented with baking them but we haven't discovered the right amount of ingredients yet. Once we do...we will post!

    2. Yes please keep us posted on baking them. I can't eat the eggs as they are haha so i'm dying to try them baked. :)

  47. Hi. New to your blog...these look so yummy! I know the eggs are pasteurized but I just can't get beyond eating raw egg so I think I'm gonna try eat with chia "eggs"!

  48. Are the macros per SERVING or per cookie? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The macros are per cookie or dough ball. That is if you get 15 cookies out of your mixture! :-) So one serving of 4 would be 180 calories. I hope this helps!

      Delete
  49. Can you make these without the chocolate and just have them as peanut butter cookie dough?

    ReplyDelete
  50. I made these last night and they were absolutely amazing!! However, I only got about 9 cookies out of the mixture, not sure how you were able to get 15. Did I do something wrong?

    ReplyDelete
  51. I'm a cake decorator by trade, and work in a wonderful bakery. I absolutely LOVE my career choice, however, I am around delicious sweets all day long! It is so hard not to reach and grab a chocolate chip cookie (my fav) throughout the day. I managed to lose all of my baby weight plus a few pounds before i began work in the bakery. This recipe satisfies my craving for sweets without blowing my calorie count for the day which has kept me from gaining any weight back. I make a batch at the beginning of my work week and stick them in the freezer at work to munch on when I'm in desperate need of chocolate :) This recipe rocks!! Thanks SOOOOO much for developing such an awesome clean dessert!!

  52. These were great but my boyfriend and I thought they came out like no-bake peanut butter cookies. Although I followed the measurements. Confused if they are supposed to taste really peanut buttery or I did something wrong? Love your recipes!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I am wondering if you can taste the peanut butter at all in this recipe? I'm not really a fan of peanut butter but if it is just for texture then it's ok.
