Cottage cheese protein cookie dough is the high-protein sweet snack you’ve been looking for! These cottage cheese cookie dough bites are safe to eat raw and taste just like the cookie dough pieces in ice cream.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. GF flour gives the best texture, but you can also use regular all-purpose flour. No matter what flour you use, if it comes from a grain, lightly cooking it first makes it safe to eat raw. (blanched almond flour and oat flour do not need to be cooked).
  2. To cook flour: preheat your oven to 300° F. Spread your flour on a sheet pan and place it in the oven for 10-15 minutes. Take it out and let it cool completely.
  3. In a blender or food processor blend together the cottage cheese, maple syrup and vanilla until smooth.
  4. Transfer to a mixing bowl and stir in the flour, protein powder, and peanut butter. (If using gluten-containing flour, don’t over-mix)
  5. Gently fold in the chocolate chips.
  6. Scoop into one tablespoon balls and place in the freezer. Once frozen, store in an airtight container in the freezer.
  7. Defrost for 10 minutes before eating & enjoy!

Notes

  • For the best texture, use gluten-free flour such as almond flour, oat flour, or GF all-purpose. Regular gluten-containing flour will work fine (I’ve used it multiple times to make this recipe). However, if you mix it too much, the gluten will develop, and that will come through in the texture.
  • No matter what flour you use, if it comes from a grain, lightly cooking it first makes it safe to eat raw. (blanched almond flour and oat flour do not need to be cooked).
  • Any protein powder will do, but vanilla whey protein that includes coconut sugar makes for the best flavor.
  • Salted Chocolate Caramel Cookie Dough: I drink LMNT electrolytes daily, and I love their Chocolate Caramel Salt. Follow the recipe as is but add in one packet of Chocolate Caramel LMNT for a different-flavor cookie dough! This will add sweetness too, without increasing the sugar or calories.
