Confession: When a was little, I used to sneak large globs of cookie dough from the giant tub of Pillsbury in the fridge. I laughed at the threat of getting an upset stomach. Oh, to be young and so carefree…
As evidenced by today’s post, however, my childhood desires have not entirely been suppressed with age. As much as I love my Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip, I do not always have sweet potatoes at hand. Instead, I have created this protein-packed cookie dough.
And guess what? I have not only been eating this as a snack and dessert, but also for breakfast too! Looking at the ingredients list, I can confidently say I regret nothing!
Oh, and an added bonus? This recipe will stuff you up! I couldn’t even get through a quarter of my cookie dough bowl before getting full! With that said, enjoy!
Cookie Dough Protein Bowl (Grain-Free)
1/2 cup protein powder (obviously, pick a flavor you like!)
3/4 cup plain, whole milk yogurt
1/4 cup nut butter and/or coconut butter
3 tbsp coconut flour
2 tbsp shredded coconut
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
Pinch of stevia
2 tbsp cacao nibs
Add all ingredients (except the cacao nibs) into a food processor and blend until smooth (likewise, you can just stir all the ingredients together in a bowl really well). Stir in the cacao nibs, transfer to a bowl, and place in the fridge for 20 minutes before serving. Makes a great breakfast, snack, or dessert!
