Who remembers begging your mother to lick the bowl when making cookies? Or maybe it was a sneaky taste when she wasn't looking. Either way, my sister and I agree that eating cookie dough was almost better than the cookies themselves. Because of our love for cookie dough, we came up with this healthy vegan oatmeal-based cookie dough recipe that is delicious and certian to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Not only is it tasty, but it's completely guilt-free and packed full of protien. This recipe is our go to dessert for a night in or a day of netflix binging.
Prep time: 1 hour Serves: 2
1 cup rolled oats
2 cups water or nut milk
2 tbsp peanut butter powder
2 tbsp creamy peanut butter
3 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp cane sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
Sea salt to taste
Vegan chocolate chips
1. Cook oatmeal by stovetop or split into 1/2 cups and cook in mircrowave. With either cooking method, the desicred consistency should be thick and creamy.
2. Transfer the oatmeal to a bowl and chill in the fridge or freezer until it cools, about 30 minutes . It can be helpful to make the oatmeal in advance so it has time to cool off.
3. Once the oatmeal has cooled, add the oatmeal, peanut butter and peanut butter powder, maple syrup, cane sugar, vanilla, baking soda, and sea salt to a blender. Blend until the ingredients are fully combined and a creamy texture is acheived. You can adjust the sweetness, salt, and texute to your preferences.
4. Mix in the vegan chocolate chips and serve. Adding crushed pretzels or cacao nibs is another great idea. Oh, and trust us and add that extra scroup of peanut butter on the top ;)
