If I look through my recipes, I do see a theme.

I cater to quick, easy and healthy recipes which DON’T sacrifice on taste. Long term readers know that I have a minor obsession with recreating my favorite snacks or desserts in no bake form or creating copycat cakes in the microwave. I love trying to see if I can make delicious recipes using the most minimal number of ingredients and I enjoy using protein powder in my recipes. 

Over the last few weeks, I’ve had a fellow blogger leave remarks on my Facebook page and throughout my older recipes on the blog. They pretty much left the exact same comment on every single post-

“All your recipes look exactly the same. You are not original.”

At first, I was taken aback. While there are similarities between my recipes, I always ensure that they are all different- Whether that be in terms of texture, taste or flavor. It defeats the purpose of me sharing an adapted recipe and the only change I made was adding sea salt or shimmying around it.

While I love trying to come up with recipes from scratch or experimenting with new ingredients, when I see something that works or have a fetish strong love for a specific ingredient (*cough* coconut flour *cough*), then you bet I’ll be using it.

Coming from a Human Resource management background, I’d often have to write new business initiatives and performance strategies. When it came to writing new performance improvement plans or initiatives, we’ve always been taught to ‘try not to reinvent the wheel.’  How does that relate to food blogging? Well, if you know the foundations of a recipe which works, use that as a base to create something new. Not every single recipe has to be 100% brand spanking new and these are my thoughts on this. 

This is how I see my recipes, share my recipes and to most of you- It’s what you enjoy and what I enjoy sharing. Until I come up with a recipe for Unicorn granola bars with pixie dust frosting, you’ll need to build a bridge and get over it. 🙂 So how about an epic recipe to combat this semi-highly edited-rant? Yes. We all love cookie dough and if your anything like me, you like it even better raw. While I’ve shared a pumpkin cookie dough and a edible cake batter dip recently, I wanted to recreate something which resembled the cookie dough in terms of its crumbly texture. Friends, I’ve got you covered. I present- Healthy Edible Cookie Dough Crumbles for one.

This healthy edible cookie dough crumble recipe is single serve and has the exact taste and texture of crumbly cookie dough. Unlike traditional cookie dough, this recipe is egg free so for those skeeved out by eating raw dough, this is totally for you! It’s refined sugar-free, paleo, gluten-free and vegan, so most bases are covered. The best part is that it actually takes less than 5 minutes to whip up and is perfectly acceptable for breakfast. I even did one better and added some milk to make it like cereal- That, however, lent itself to a smoother texture. 

For those who want a high protein option, I’ve tried it out with protein powder and it works really well using my favorite paleo protein powder, my favorite vegan protein powder and my favorite casein protein powder.

Make this healthy cookie dough crumbles for one and whether this is like another one of my recipes or not, two things is for certain- It’s bloody delicious and I look like Ryan Gosling.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup coconut flour can sub for almond flour
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder optional
  • 2 tablespoon granulated sweetener of choice I trialled both a stevia blend and coconut palm sugar*
  • Pinch sea salt
  • Pinch cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoon almond or cashew butter can sub for peanut butter if not paleo
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup can sub for any sticky sweetener, depending on dietary compliance
  • 1 teaspoon + dairy free milk of choice **
  • 2 tablespoon mix-ins of choice- I used dairy free mini chocolate chips and crushed cashews

Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the coconut flour, protein powder (if using it), granulated sweetener, sea salt and cinnamon and mix very well.
  • Mix in your nut butter and maple syrup until a very crumbly mixture is left. Using a teaspoon, add dairy-free milk until a the mixture thickens VERY slightly but is still crumbly. Stir through your mix ins of choice and serve immediately.

Notes

* Dependent on your desired sweetness level. Adjust accordingly
** I like smaller crumbles, so I used closer to 1/4 cup (I also preferred the casein protein powder)
This can be refrigerated and frozen and also prepped in advance.

  1. It is your blog! You get to write what ever you want! Don’t listen to sad people with too much time on their hands. Keep being your awesome self; nobody can do that better than you!

  2. Screw the haters – they’re just jealous they can’t come up with food as delicious looking as this. 😉

  3. I feel like we just had this conversation 😛 I try to keep a little bit of variety on Spoons, but I definitely have a few signature recipes that I switch up flavours for. I mean… they work and people love them, so why fix it if it ain’t broken?

  4. I really enjoy your blog and your recipes. I wanted to try this one and I made a few changes and it is terrific! I added hemp and chia seeds and a tablespoon of coconut oil. Then I baked it like a big flat cookie. Its like real cereal!! But its grain free!!!!
    I am eating a bowl of it right now with a sliced banana,coconut flakes and almond milk! Thank you!

  5. I would like the recipe for Unicorn Granola with Pixie Dust Frosting please. Also, keep in mind, no unicorns can be harmed in the making of said granola bars. K, thanks.

  6. What a clever recipe! This would be great to put on oatmeal, Greek yogurt, or other pastries as well! I am up for aaaaaaaaaaaaaany types of cookie dough–if it’s cookie dough, I’ll eat it!

  7. I totally, totally, totally agree with you. Myself I chose to reinvent or change slightly, or change drastically, a recipe that I created and love, and not try everything that exists just to say ‘I did it’. I have been disappointed so many times by recipes (unfortunately when they are not mine :/) that I would rather stick to the ones that works GREAT than eating something that is just ‘Eh…’. I can’t stand to waste food/time on something not worth the calories, sincerely. Of course I know there are similarities in the recipes/books of my favorite bloggers, how could I not see it as I reinvent them myself by also comparing many of their recipes and ending by seeing they are so alike? But like you said, like I think: keep what works and play with it! Even if you don’t have to prove anything, you may have been taken aback by these comments (we have feelings 😉 ) but at least you questioned yourself, and questioning oneself doesn’t necessarily mean something is wrong. Keep up the great recipes and thank you!

  8. Made the cookie dough crumble tonight. I used almond meal and had to add much more than the recipe called for and still did not get a crumble texture. However in the end the taste was still very good. I would make it again.

  9. 5 stars
    This recipe hit the spot for a healthy version of cookie crumble, yum ! I pour some over my rolled oats and it was delicuous! Thank you!
