  • 1/4 C chocolate chips
  • Optional: pinch of salt


  • 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.
