Got a craving for cookie dough? When your sweet tooth kicks in and you don’t feel like baking, here’s a super quick fix to indulge in!
For whatever reason, RAW cookie dough is the one thing that I crave when I want something sweet. Unfortunately, it’s not exactly safe to consume raw eggs frequently found in the dough, so my sons and I came up with this delicious substitute!
1 Tbs Sugar
1 Tbs Brown Sugar
1 1/2 Tbs Butter
1 Tbs Water
1/4 c. Flour (aka 4 Tbs)
pinch of salt
3 Drops of Vanilla Extract
2 Tbs Chocolate Chips
Combine the sugars and butter until creamy, add the flour, salt, water, extract and continue mixing until smooth, stir in the chocolate chips and DIG IN!!
We realize this particular recipe is over 250 calories for a single serving, but chances are, if you’re craving a dish of raw cookie dough, calories really aren’t the issue at the moment.
However, with that in mind, here’s a way to quell your cookie dough craving in a healthy (er) way!
One Minute Peanut Butter Cookie Dough (Healthy Version)
1 (6oz) container Vanilla Greek Yogurt
2 Tbs Peanut flour(we use PB2 powdered peanut butter, you can get it on amazon here)
1-2 packets of Stevia
2-3 drops Vanilla Extract
1 Tbs Mini Chocolate chips
Stir the peanut flour into the yogurt, then add the remaining ingredients. This one tastes best if you freeze it for 5 minutes before consuming to give it the perfect cookie dough texture.
What about the concerns of consuming Raw Flour?
Raw flour has made the news a few times over the years with concerns that it could potentially carry bacteria. While this is extremely rare, those with immune issues, or the very young or elderly may not like to consume raw flour (just in case!).
Here’s another very simple recipe that is both Eggless and Flourless, but still completely delicious with the perfect texture!
1 stick butter, room temp
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar packed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons milk
1 1/2 cups oat flour** (see note)
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cups chocolate chips
In a small bowl cream the butter, sugar, brown sugar, milk and vanilla until smooth and fluffy. Add the oat flour and salt, beating until smooth, then fold in the chocolate chips.
This makes 4 hearty servings, so if you’d like, you can divide the dough, wrap it in wax paper and freeze the extra for
a quick and easy cookie dough snack anytime!
** Oat flour is simply old fashioned oats that are powdered using a food processor or blender. If you’re not sure how to make your own oat flour here’s a step by step tutorial (don’t worry, it only takes a minute to make!!).
