Friends, we’re going back to basics today a la Amy Winehouse.

Minus Amy Winehouse.

I’ve spent the past couple of weeks assessing my recipes I’ve been sharing on here. While most, if not all of them are generally easy and on the sweeter side- I’ve realised many of them bypass the more classic flavors. Take today’s recipe for a classic cookie dough for one

A few months ago, I first shared this delicious pumpkin cookie dough just when the northern hemisphere went cray-cray for pumpkin. Soon after, snickerdoodle wanted a piece of the (non-existent) pie. You can’t have cookie dough without sprinkles so cake batter had to have its turn. We then recently shared my personal favorite- Cookies and cream.

What about the classic version?

Bingo.

Through perusing my recipe archives, there has been a trend in which I bypass the original recipe idea and go full throttle with more creative spins on it. While there isn’t anything ‘wrong’ with that, I tend to forget to share the source of inspiration and as such- This needs to be rectified.

Speaking of cookie dough, you will LOVE these 3 Ingredient Cookie Dough protein bars– NO butter, NO oil, NO flour, NO grains and NO sugar- I mean, check out how simple it is below!

When I first teamed up with Kohl’s for this season, I promised to share quick, easy and delicious recipes families would enjoy. I’m saving the best for last sharing today’s recipe as it brings back amazing memories from my own childhood. Eating raw cookie dough has always been a massive ‘NO NO’ in our house. Mum told us we’d get worms, get thrown in jail and be chased by the Grinch.

This never stopped us and we’d sneakily dip our fingers in the batter and then blame one another for the lack of content going into the oven.

Ingredients
  1. 1/2 cup mashed banana or unsweetened applesauce (can sub for pumpkin)
  2. 1/2 cup vegan friendly, paleo or casein vanilla protein powder**
  3. 1 tsp cinnamon
  4. 1 T oat flour (Can sub for coconut flour for paleo option)**
  5. 1 T + granulated sweetener of choice (optional)
  6. 2 T cashew or almond butter
  7. 1 T maple syrup (can sub for agave or another sticky sweetener)
  8. 1 T + dairy free milk of choice**
  9. Dairy free chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the applesauce/banana, protein powder, cinnamon, flour of choice and sweetener and mix very well.
  2. In a small microwave-safe dish or stovetop, melt the nut butter with the maple syrup and add to the dry until fully incorporated.
  3. Using a tablespoon, add dairy free milk of choice until desired consistency is reached. Transfer to a bowl and top with dairy free chips and enjoy!
  4. If using a blender or food processor, there is no need to melt the nut butter and syrup- Simply add all the ingredients and blend well.

  1. ** Depending on the protein powder and flours you use, you may need more milk. Adjust accordingly.
  2. This is best eaten after being refrigerated as it firms up even more and becomes even more doughy.

  1. From reading through the list of ingredients I know that I will LOVE this. But the true star here are the pictures! I love love love them! The texture looks spot on and I seriously NEED to make this for dinner today!

  2. It’s amazing that this doesn’t have eggs in! I never actually knew that eating raw cookie dough was a no-no until I was about 18. I’m surprised I didn’t die considering how much raw batter I ate growing up! In fact, my best friend and I used to make pancake batter every weekend and just eat it raw. We were weird AF.

  3. As mentioned before we didn’t really have the cake batter/ cookie dough eating thing in the UK – we just wanted them cooked ASAP! But we used to get told we’d get worms if we ate snow off the ground… I never paid attention to that… We used to pretend we were eating american ‘snow cones’! Haha!
    Something basic I adore… Have you ever had plain ice cream? Not vanilla just simply the cream? Like the one we both had in Amsterdam?! Stunning!

  4. I know in another couple of your recipes, you specifically stated that whey protein leads to a gummy texture. Is that also true here or did you just choose to keep with vegan/paleo/casein powders for other’s lifestyle choices?

      1. Looks like I’ll have to invest in another kind then, so I can make all these fan-effing-tabulous recipes of yours! Thanks Almond:)

  5. Couldn’t resist myself and ate it immediately (no fridge). Great recipe. I substituted pumpkin and did half all purpose flour and half rolled oats and processed it instead of oat flour.

  6. This looks awesome! Is it half a cup or half a scoop of protein powder? 1/2 cup just seems like a lot! Thanks for all of your wonderful ideas and recipes!

  7. I just made this but I found it to much banana-ish. I really don’t like the taste of banana in cookies/cake/icecream etc. 🙁

  8. Pingback: Coffee Talk #7
  9. I love your ‘for one’ recipes!! Perfect for someone like me, who lives alone and has no self control whatsoever!

  10. Just had this for dessert! Skipped out on the almond butter since I ate so much today already and it turned out delicious! 🙂 thanks for the recipe!
