Day 7: High Protein Cookie Dough

Posted Jun 07 2011 7:00am

Welcome to day seven of the Sugar Free Challenge!  I have been making myself this “Dessert Hummus” for months now, but haven’t bothered posting a recipe yet. Once I saw Katie’s Cookie Dough Dip , I knew I had to show people that cookie dough can be high in protein and sugar-free!

But first, here is today’s sample menu:

Breakfast: Grain-Free Bitter Chocolate Pancakes for One with Toasted coconut.

Lunch: Apple slices dipped in High-Protein Cookie Dough (Recipe Below)

Snack: Artichoke with lemon juice.

Dinner: I actually went out to dinner and had a BIG salad with lots of veggies and beans.

Dessert: More Cookie Dough!

High Protein Cookie Dough

~This unbaked dough is high in protein because of the garbanzo beans. Don’t shy away from it, though, because it tastes fantastic! Dairy-free, vegan, gluten-free, and, of course, sugar-free! 

Ingredients

  • 1 can chickpeas (1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 oz. unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 1/4 cup nutbutter (I prefer Making it a Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough by using peanut butter)
  • 1/4 cup nondairy milk (I used almond milk. Water will probably work, too)
First, drain and wash chickpeas well. Make sure they are well-washed so that the cookie dough doesn’t taste like beans. Add all the ingredients except chocolate into a blender or food processor and process until smooth. Adjust liquid as needed. Stir in chocolate chunks.
Serve with apple slices, crackers, bars of unsweetened chocolate, on toast, or my favorite-eat it straight with a spoon! It would also be a fabulous frosting for my Chocolate Cake.
Health Benefits

What is one food you absolutely love, but everyone else hates? Or you absolutely hate, but everyone else loves?

Honestly, I will eat just about anything….as long as it is sugar-free, dairy-free, gluten-free…Ok, well that kind of narrows it down. I love love love capers! Some people don’t.
