The Best Protein Powder Cookie Dough
Make the best protein powder cookie dough with Drink Wholesome. Our protein powder is made by hand in the USA with 100% real foods – no chalky protein isolates, no added junk, just real foods.
If you are anything like me, you make cookie dough with zero intention of actually baking cookies! There is nothing quite like a spoonful of cookie dough, especially when there is no risk of foodborne illness. This recipe, unlike most cookie dough recipes, does not contain raw eggs, which can make you sick. You can therefore scoop away without the anxiety.
I love this recipe for several other reasons. First of all it is beyond easy to make. All you need are six simple ingredients and a few minutes. Second, it is low sugar thanks to the protein powder, which is already sweetened. Finally, this cookie dough is protein packed! What is there not to love about a dessert that can both satisfy your sweet tooth and meet your protein goals!
It is important to note that we made this recipe with Drink Wholesome, and that other protein powders may not yield the same great results! This is because most protein powders are made with chalky protein isolates and artificial sweeteners. Drink Wholesome, on the other hand, is made with real foods and nothing else.
Now without further ado, here is how to make a dairy-free, gluten-free edible cookie dough that packs a protein punch!
-1/2 cup coconut oil
-2 tbsp non-dairy milk
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-1 cup oat flour
-1 cup Drink Wholesome vanilla protein powder
-1/4 tsp salt
-1/2 cup (non-dairy) dark chocolate chips
*If you would like to add more sweetness, I recommend using maple sugar.
In a medium bowl using a hand mixer or stand mixer, mix all of the wet ingredients together. Beat them until the mixture is light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Beat in the vanilla and salt until combined. Beat in flour until just combined. Add the milk one tablespoon at a time until dough starts to come together. Fold in the chocolate chips with rubber spatula. Enjoy!
Drink Wholesome has taken a fundamentally different approach to protein powder. We use 100% real food ingredients. Research suggests that these ingredients are better for you than the highly processed additives and protein isolates found in most protein powders. They are also far better tasting as they contain the complex carbohydrates, healthy fats, and other nutrients that make food taste good. Order samples to see for yourself.
