The title of this recipe probably shocks you. This is a cheater title- sorry- I am not giving you a recipe that is chock full of wheat flour and sugar. Staying true to my naturopathic ways, I am presenting you with a knock off cookie dough recipe that has no sugar, no grains, and no junk. But don’t worry! It DOES have flavor.
I am a little late to the blended cottage cheese craze. I am hoping that you are, too, and that you think I am a genius that came up with this creative way to eat cottage cheese. In reality, I have seen these recipes all over the internet and have been blended cottage cheese curious for months now.
I also crave sweets once in a while and thought, what the heck, I’d give this blended cottage cheese thing a go.
I have seen it blended with frozen fruit and a bit of honey or maple syrup and blended with protein powder and topped with fruit and nuts to make a kind of smoothie bowl. But I really wanted a dessert that I could chew, so cookie “dough” it is.
- 1 cup cottage cheese
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder (I use Active Stacks)
- ⅔ cup almond flour
- 2 T honey or maple syrup (OPTIONAL: if your protein powder is unsweetened. If it is, taste first before you add more sweetener and decide how much you want to use)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Chocolate chips (optional)
