Who of you was waiting for this recipe?! Since I received tons of messages asking for the recipe of my chocolate cookie dough I decided to share it here on my blog. It is not only rich in protein but also ideal as breakfast, dessert or snack and definitely a healthier choice than some junk food chocolate bars. If you’re curious for the recipe make sure to read this!
Cookie Dough – what even is that?
Let me tell you one thing. The english term ‘cookie dough’ sounds much better than the German word which is why I also use cookie dough in my German recipe. It sounds much better and describes it more accurate. Just on a little side note.
Some of you might ask themselves now: why in hell would you eat cookie dough? Well, there is a simple reason:
It’s super delicious!
Who would have thought of this one? If you think of regular cookie dough it is definitely nothing you can eat as breakfast – at least it shouldn’t be. But this cookie dough is different. It is made of whole ingredients and contains a considerable amount of protein. That is of course beneficial to muscle growth but also helps you to stay satisfies longer. Sounds good? Then what are you waiting for?!
The secret ingredient
So how do you make a cookie dough that is edible in it’s unbaked state and delicious, too? The secret ingredient is called chickpea! In fact you could also call this recipe ‘sweet hummus’ but I guess that just doesn’t sound too appealing and a little weird and would probably keep a lot of people from trying it. And let me tell you that you would definitely miss out on something.
Essential is also a good blender, a kitchen machine or a very very good hand-held blender. The last thing you want is little pieces of chickpeas in your cookie dough.
Ideal is to blend all ingredients until well combined and afterwards put the cookie dough in the fridge for a few hours or overnight. This will really help the creamy and dough-like texture. Especially the psyllium husk will aid this process as it soaks up a lot of liquid.
Protein-bomb cookie dough
As already mentioned this cookie dough is quite rich in protein. The reason for this are not only the chickpeas themselves but also the soy yoghurt and protein powder added. If you don’t have any protein powder at hand don’t worry – you can also make it without. However, you will need to add more sweetener to compensate the sweetness of the protein powder. In this case I used a vegan chocolate protein which was absolutely perfect for this dish.
This cookie dough is…
- rich in protein
- super tasty
- easy to make
- a must-try for all cookie dough lovers
