This edible protein cookie dough is super easy to make! It gives you that classic chocolate chip cookie dough flavor but with a ton of protein, fiber, and nutrients too! And this eggless cookie dough is safe to eat straight from the bowl.
Melt butter in a medium sized mixing bowl (about 30-seconds in the microwave)
Add almond flour, protein powder, almond milk, and maple syrup to the bowl and stir until combined and a dough is formed
Stir in the chocolate chips
Grab a spoon, dig in, and enjoy!
*While this recipe as written is gluten free, if you have celiac disease it is a good idea to verify that the almond milk brand you buy is certified as gluten free. * To make this into a vegan edible cookie dough, you will need to make a few easy substitutions:
Replace the butter with a vegan alternative like coconut oil or vegan butter. Note: using coconut oil does change the flavor a bit. I like it, but it isn’t as classic of a chocolate chip cookie flavor as when butter is used.
Replace the vanilla whey protein with a vanilla vegan protein powder
*To make this into a dairy free cookie dough recipe you will need to:
Select a vanilla protein powder that is certified to be dairy free. It may be easier to look for a vegan vanilla protein powder as that will be dairy free.
