Just 5, easy ingredients are needed to make this edible chocolate chocolate chip protein cookie dough. You would never guess that this high-protein recipe is made with chickpeas and protein powder. It tastes like the real deal!
Isn't it crazy the endless possibilities for high protein desserts? A couple of months ago we shared with you our favorite childhood snack, gone high protein, Funfetti Puppy Chow. Today, we are taking it to another level with this Chocolate Chocolate Chip Protein Cookie Dough recipe.
As kids, we always wanted to lick the cookie dough bowl when our parents were baking. I remember my dad always telling me I would get sick from the raw egg in the dough. Does anyone else remember that? Thankfully, that never happened. But, to ensure that it never does, we have come up with a workaround. A high protein cookie dough recipe that contains NO EGGS! Say what? Yup, no eggs, no dairy, gluten-free, soy-free, plant-based, and all around healthy and super delicious!
How did we do it? We swapped out the refined flour, sugar, eggs, and butter for wholesome ingredients like chickpeas (just trust us on this), Medjool dates, cashew butter, spices and our protein-rich, nutrient dense friend, BiPro Bold Whey Protein Powder.
If you saw this post, then you know why BiPro Bold Whey Protein Powder is our go-to brand for all things delicious! But, as a quick recap, we love using their products because not only do they align with our personal eating styles, but their products:
- use only natural sweeteners and flavors
- No hormones
- No added sugars
It’s just 23 grams of pure delicious, lean, clean, protein! Think milkshake, but with protein! It's what really gives this chocolate chocolate chip protein cookie dough recipe it's true cookie dough like flavor!
This recipe makes 8 servings, but TBH if you are able to get 8 servings then you have some amazing self-control because we couldn't stop. It may or may not have disappeared in a matter of one afternoon.....Ooops! Portion control doesn't matter if the recipe is made with healthy ingredients like chickpeas and BiPro Protein Powder, right? ?
