The Best Protein Powder Cookie Dough
If you are anything like me, you make cookie dough with no intention of actually baking cookies! There is nothing quite like a spoonful of cookie dough, especially when there is no risk of food-borne illness. This recipe, unlike most cookie dough recipes, does not contain raw eggs, which can make you sick. You can therefore scoop away without worrying about getting sick.
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 help you meet your protein goals.
Why drink wholesome?
This recipe was made with drink wholesome vanilla protein powder. It is perfect for baking. Most protein powders are not good for baking because they are made with protein concentrates and isolates, foods stripped of everything but the protein.
Unlike real foods, protein concentrates and isolates are missing the nutrients that make food taste good. In other words, they turn delicious recipes into hockey pucks. With enough trial and error, you can make these protein powders work, but how much chalky cookie dough are you willing to make?
Another reason why drink wholesome is perfect for baking is that it is sweetened with monk fruit. Monk fruit, also known as lo han guo, is a small, melon-like round fruit native to Southeast Asia. Monk fruit sweetener is made by removing the seeds and skin, crushing the fruit, and collecting the juice, which is then dried into a powder.
We use monk fruit sweetener because it has a sweetness similar to that of sugar. Artificial sweeteners and stevia, on the other hand, are either way too sweet, or have a bitter aftertaste. Order samples to experience the monk fruit sweetness for yourself.
Now without further ado, here is the best protein cookie dough recipe.
-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 combined. Add the milk one tablespoon at a time until dough starts to come together. Fold in the chocolate chips with rubber spatula. Enjoy!
